    Default Read the Emails On Donald Trump JR.'s Russia Meeting

    https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/...mail-text.html

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned this yet, but Donald Trump JR tried to collude with a Russian Lawyer during the campaign. Here, you can read his e-mails setting up the meeting.

    If I was running for office, I'd meet with anyone who claimed they had dirt on my opponent.

    What a travesty, this is turrible! Incriminating evidence being provided on corrupt and criminogenic Hilary by a Russian? What a shame! Arrest Don Jr. instead, get the focus off of Hilary!!!!

    It's illegal to collude with a foreign country in a campaign.

    It's illegal to accept funds from a foreign government to finance a political campaign.

    As a worker in politics, I can say this is standard operating procedure regardless of party affiliation.

    The only thing I see Don should have done that he didn't, is pass the original letter on to Donald J.

    I'd like to know why Russia is the enemy. Congress hasn't declared war on Russia, and the executive really does set foreign policy.

    You should. But two wrongs don't make a right. He still broke the law.

    Russia's the enemy because they have a horrible human rights record. Yeah, the U.S can be pretty bad at that sometimes. But that's nothing compared to Russia where everyone who opposes Putin just happens to be at best harassed and at worst killed. Not to mention the human trafficking, treatment of gay people, and the treatment of those with disabilities.

    No one has been proven guilty of a crime yet. As of now it is all speculations. This may or may not change over the next months. I don't know.

    I've wondered about that.... do you know how the specific campaign law reads, regarding getting free information from an "outside" source?

    I've always assumed that information is free to anyone. Truth, being told by an enemy, does not make it an un-truth.

    If Jeremiah Wright or David Duke said something that was true, it wouldn't matter at all that they are despicable people.... it would STILL be the truth.

    I agree.... according to that document.... "11 CFR 110.20 - Prohibition on contributions, donations, expenditures, independent expenditures, and disbursements by foreign nationals (52 U.S.C. 30121, 36 U.S.C. 510)."

    it is only talking about monies or any other type of funding..... says nothing about information.

    If it is talking about information, then no campaign member could ever read Pravda, or, listen to the BBC for that matter.

    Tommy is right. And Rosella what you posted was just showing that Tommy was right.
    Trump Jr. was not colluding but gathering intel to disprove her credibility. As a matter in fact according to law anybody is required to gather and report any information that may involve any type of crime and treason is supposed to carry out the death penalty. I think according to law and from all that has already happened Hillary qualifies.
