From Vixen Strangely at Strangely Blogged:
I am a little surprised that there has been a new breakthrough regarding the admission from Donald Trump, Jr. that he met with a Kremlin-associated lawyer and anti-Magnitsky Act lobbyist because she supposedly had “dirt’ on Hillary Clinton. That sounded pretty bad. It let some people pretend that if nothing came of the meeting (allegedly) because she had no good dirt on Hillary Clinton, that was simply that. As if breaking and entering was less of a crime if one didn’t get much from one’s burglaring. That much is basically the grounds for a collusion case: it opens to door to say that the Trump Campaign was ready and willing to take help from any source, and they weren’t going to be picky.
Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort were there, in Trump Tower, under the same roof as the candidate and paterfamilias. And we have to assume he was either in the dark, or gave his blessing–both stories have their attendant horrors of incompetency to contemplate.
