Fallout continues from Donald Trump Jr.’s release of emails yesterday.
The emails detail what led to a meeting last year between a Russian attorney and three Trump insiders including Trump Jr., campaign director Paul Manafort and the President’s son-in-law and top advisor, Jared Kushner. The invitation to meet was extended by a music publicist who claimed the attorney was with the Russian government and that she had damaging information on Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Trump Jr. expressed enthusiasm for the meeting, which has become a big problem for the Administration.
The White House is fighting back against the idea the meeting was unethical, and perhaps illegal. But Republicans in Congress have yet another major hurdle to overcome in moving their agenda.
