Donald Trump Jr. seems to be having a difficult time being honest or upfront about the meeting he took with the Russians. It’s unclear if he is misremembering, confused or both, but CNN’s Jake Tapper walked through a list of the many times the younger Trump has mislead the public about the Trump Tower meeting.
The first incident came in March, when he denied to the New York Times that he met with any Russians.
The second story came when he admitted July 8 that he did have meetings with Russians but that the meeting was about Russian adoptions and had nothing to do about the elections.
The story changed a third time when, just two days later, Trump Jr. admitted that he did not only meet with the Russians but he met with them because he was promised “dirt” on Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.
Now, a fourth change in the story came Thursday when Trump Jr. told the Judiciary Committee that he had a patriotic obligation to talk to the Russians about Hillary Clinton to discover her “fitness” for office.
It’s unclear if the story will change again as new information becomes available and others involved in the meeting testify.
Watch the timeline recap below:
Virginia Democrats are so fired up that the party chair had to scold them: ‘Sit down — be quiet’
Democrats in Virginia are fired up as they gathered in Richmond for their annual gala dinner.
Political analysts believe the Democratic Party of Virginia has a good chance to win control of the state legislature in 2019's election, before setting their sights on the Commonwealth continuing its recent trend of voting Democratic in presidential elections.
Patrick Wilson, a political reporter for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, attended the event.
He reported that Democrats were so "noisy" that it was hard to hear the speakers, which include presidential candidates Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
‘Everyone knows what to expect’ at Trump’s Amway Center re-election kickoff
Donald Trump considers himself a legendary salesman, but can he really sell America on giving him four more drama-filled years at the White House?
Tuesday, he'll make his big pitch.
The 2020 reelection kickoff rally is being held in Orlando, Florida and campaign operations chief Michael Glassner says the "historic" event "has already generated tens of thousands of ticketing requests."
There's little mystery about how the night will go down.
Expect Trump, the self-promoting hero of his ghost-written book "The Art of the Deal," to claim the US economy is richer, the military stronger, and the country more respected than ever in history.
Florida man’s own family blasts him after he was arrested for racist threats: ‘This isn’t how we were raised’
After a Florida man was arrested for trying to start a race war, a member of his own family slammed his values.
"A Florida man’s social media posts that threatened violence against African-Americans, Jews and homosexuals and that urged his followers to start a race war netted him a $1 million bond," the Miami Herald reported Saturday. "And then there’s another $100,000 bond he would have to pay to get out of Lee County Jail because of a weapons charge."
Joshua Leff, 40, is being held in the Lee County Jail.
