From Slate here:
On Friday NBC News reported that Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya was also attended by a Russian lobbyist formerly employed by Soviet counter-intelligence who some U.S. officials reportedly say has “ongoing ties to Russian intelligence.” From NBC News:
NBC News is not naming the lobbyist, who denies any current ties to Russian spy agencies. He accompanied the lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, to the June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower attended by Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort.
There has been more than a few spoonfuls of bullshit heaped into this Russia/Trump story but when you’re getting down to the level of having Russian spies in the room with the President’s son, it doesn’t look that great.
He’s there to get dirt on Hillary Clinton — who did they think had the skills to get dirt on Hillary Clinton? Russian wheat farmers?
I don’t think so.
Regular readers know that I prefer Trump to Jesus Pence who is a straight up Christian fascist so it’s not with some rabid insanity that I write this.
Of course, one must make the disclaimer that Trump is a foul asshole but he’s less competent than Pence would be.
