Don Jr met with a Kremlin-affiliated lawyer who offered him damaging information about Hillary Clinton in the Spring of 2016.

The meeting was set up through one of Trump Jr.'s business contacts, and he asked Kushner and Manafort to join him in case they learned useful information for his father's campaign. Trump Jr. said the lawyer's information about Clinton was a pretext, that there was "no meaningful information" learned, and that old man Trump "knew nothing of the meeting."

When the initial story broke last night, Trump Jr. insisted that the meeting had nothing to do with campaign issues and was strictly focused on a Russian adoption program and insisted the meeting had to do with the Magnitsky Act.

So they went to the meeting to receive damaging information about Clinton from a Russian lawyer. That was their intent, even if the meeting was a pretense. I think that is a confession right there. If the "Russian lawyer" had been a US undercover agent, that would perfectly describe a sting operation.

Whether or not Trump Jr., Kushner, and Manafort actually received intelligence concerning Clinton at the meeting is irrelevant, as Trump Jr. went to the meeting in expectation of obtaining such information.

Since the Russians were talking about "adoptions" to Team Trump - the Russians clearly "knew" that Trump was going to win.

...because ol' Hillz didn't have that same meeting.

The funny thing is that all these Trump administration people are so inept they don't even realize when they are confessing to a crime!

This impeachment and all the following indictments are going to be vastly entertaining. I wonder if Ivanka will end up where Martha Stuart served her time.

Washington Post reporter Philip Bump noticed that Donald Trump promised to deliver a speech about "all the stuff going on with the Clintons" a few hours after Junior setup the meeting. Of course he never delivered on that promise since as Junior put it, the meeting did not actually have any dirt on the Clintons.

This looks like proof that Donald senior knew about soliciting opposition research from a foreign power, a clear violation of the law. Yet another charge, when the House gets around to doing their duty.

But besides being impeachable for Trump senior, it is also criminal for the Three Stooges who attended the meeting. We could see indictments a lot sooner than impeachment. Maybe Moe, Larry, and Curly can get a cell together and continue their wacky adventures in The Big House.
