The Rosenberg suite is being cleaned. It should be ready for you in about an hour, Mr. Trump.

It’s difficult to imagine how the New York Times could have played this recent series of stories about Donald Trump Jr. any more perfectly. First, after telling him that they intended to run a story about how he’d met with a Russian attorney during the campaign, they asked him for a comment. His response, naturally, was to lie. He told the reporters from the Times that the meeting was simply about the plight of Russian orphans seeking adoption in the United States, and how, if elected president, his father might be able to help them. Then, the next day, these very same reporters went back to the younger Mr. Trump and asked him if he’d like to revise his statement, given the fact that several individuals in the White House had confirmed that the meeting came about after a Russian businessman with ties to the Trump organization had offered to put members of the Trump campaign in touch with someone who could provide dirt on Hillary Clinton. Well, as we discussed yesterday, our President’s eldest son then revised his statement, saying that, yes, he’d agreed to take the meeting with the Russian attorney because he’d been promised intelligence about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that might prove useful during the campaign, but, rest assured, he told the reporters, no information was passed along. Furthermore, he added, he didn’t know anything about the Russian woman he’d met with, or where her information might have come from. And, today, these same New York Times journalists are back again, this time with an article about how Donald Trump Jr., despite his comments to the contrary, knew the information they’d be discussing had been illegally obtained by Russian operatives working within the United States. Here, with more, is a clip from today’s article in the New York Times.

So, not only do we have multiple sources within the White House coordinating a leak about this meeting between senior Trump campaign officials and Natalia Veselnitskaya, a well-known lawyer for the Russian mafia, but we now know that Donald Trump Jr., who set up the meeting through former British tabloid journalist turned Russian marketing firm head Rob Goldstone, knew from the very outset that the information being offered came by way of the Russian government.

So, yeah, I think they’re getting the Rosenberg suite ready for little Donnie… And apparently he thinks so too. Word just broke a little while ago that he’s lawyered up, hiring an attorney, who, coincidentally, has represented alleged members the Bonanno, Gambino, Genovese and Colombo organized crime families… Things, as they say, are escalating quickly.

    One thinks someone (or actually three people) in the White House decided that Donnie Jr. was going to take the rap for this.

    More smoke. Meeting with someone during a campaign who claims to have dirt on your opponent is not a crime.

    Actually, EOS, you’re wrong about that. When you conspire with a hostile foreign government to subvert a democratic election, it’s not only illegal, it’s the kind of thing that people get put to death for.

    Will Junior fall on his sword to protect The Don? Junior will get a spanking while the Don pleads ignorance. Which is only the truth.

    I have to admit that if any of the Trumps get charged with a capital crime, my beliefs about capital punishment will be severely tested.

    I spent my morning watching videos of Donald Trump Jr. during the campaign (like the one below), and I’m with you Lynne. It’s going to be hard for me to stay true to my anti capital punishment beliefs. I can do it, though. I’m strong.

    Many in the know people like David Frumm, editor of the Atlantic, are speculating that Kushner leaked this to place responsibility at the feet of don jr. Trump camp are experts at nothing but twisting narratives to suit their needs.

    Reminder: Trump said he was going to give a “major speech” on Clinton the same day Don Jr. agreed to the meeting with the Russian lawyer.
