In an explosive report last night by the New York Times, Donald Trump Jr. admitted to meeting a Russian attorney in order to gain access to information which could have been damaging to both Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee. This is the first admission by any Trump Campaign associate that there was at least some form of collusion with the Russians in order to help elect Donald Trump, and apparently it has caused the White House to go into panic mode.
According to Jon Cooper, the Chairman of The Democratic Coalition, a former National Finance Chair for Draft Biden 2016, and a LI Campaign Chair for President Obama, the White House is in ‘total meltdown’. Cooper, who has been in contact with a Trump staffer, tweeted the following moments ago:
“Trump staffer: Behind the scenes, the White House is in “total meltdown” over latest #TrumpRussia revelations involving @DonaldJTrumpJr.”
Cooper has posted numerous reports from those close to the White House in the past, but this latest tweet seems to show just how worried many in the Trump Administration seem to be following yesterday’s story in the New York Times. A former George W. Bush ethics lawyer, Richard Painter, discussed just how serious this report may be for the Trump Campaign.
“This was an effort to get opposition research on an opponent in an American political campaign from the Russians, who were known to be engaged in spying inside the United States,” Richard Painter said Sunday on MSNBC. “We do not get our opposition research from spies, we do not collaborate with Russian spies, unless we want to be accused of treason.”
Meanwhile President Trump has remained quiet about his son’s admission, instead using the bulk of his time today retweeting messages against James Comey, and Hillary Clinton.
