Noted Attorney Shreds Donald Trump Jr’s Flimsy Excuse For Meeting Russian Agent

Seth Abramson takes on Donald Trump Jr’s latest Twitter Tantrum – a flimsy attempt at explaining his meeting with an agent of the Kremlin at Trump Tower last year. 

The New York Times reported a meeting Trump Jr. attended with a lawyer connected to the Kremlin on June 9, 2016. Trump Sr.’s campaign chairman at the time, Paul Manafort, and Trump’s son-in-law and advisor Jared Kushner also attended the meeting. According to the Times, the Kremlin lawyer promised to provide dirt on Hillary Clinton.

After the story broke, a clearly rattled Donny Jr. was unable to refrain from commenting and dug his proverbial hole even deeper. He attempted to defend himself in a statement about said meeting – however his excuse read more like an admission of guilt. And then he started tweeting.

Attorney and University of New Hampshire professor Seth Abramson – who has been publishing extensive tweets regarding the ongoing investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia – came up with ten questions the media should be asking Don Jr.

Donald Jr. tweeted:

Abramson quoted Don Jr’s tweet and asked a series of questions:

  • Maybe the first to take such a meeting and then lie to his dad about it for a year for no reason anyone in America can figure out?
  • So Don, why was it SO vital you not tell your father about this meeting? And that Jared not? And that Manafort not? And that Goldstone not?
  • Don, if it was no big deal, why lie about it repeatedly? Why hide it from your dad when you were with him in TT the whole day it happened?
  • So if it was a run-of-the-mill meeting, why do you now say you refused to tell Jared and Manafort who the meeting was with? Why the secrecy?
  • Hey Don, just wondering, if the meeting was no big deal, why did your dad’s lawyers come out and say it was a “Democratic Party conspiracy”?
  • Don, George Bush’s ethics attorney says what you did “borders on treason.” Why would he say such a thing of a run-of-the-mill meeting, Don?
  • Quick question, Don. Which back door at Trump Tower did you smuggle this Kremlin agent through? Do you do that for all commonplace meetings?
  • Don, you continued meeting with this Kremlin agent for 29 minutes after learning she had no information for you. Is your time worth nothing?
  • You say Goldstone refused to tell you who you were meeting. Do you often take meetings when the organizer won’t say who you’re meeting with?
  • Don, last question: why did you describe a meeting in which a Kremlin agent asked your dad to drop Russian sanctions as being about babies?
