Hillary Clinton’s running mate, Virginia Senator Tim Kaine (D), told CNN that Donald Trump, Jr. may have committed treason last June after agreeing to meet with a Russian lawyer — who promised dirt on Clinton to aid the Trump campaign.
“We are now beyond obstruction of justice, Kaine told CNN on Tuesday. “This is moving into perjury, false statements and even potentially treason.”
Kaine is addressing the series of bombshell reports from the New York Times detailing the June 9, 2016 meeting – specifically Monday’s report that Donald, Jr. received an email prior to the meeting alerting him the Russian lawyer had “compromising” information on Clinton as “part of a Russian government effort” to help the Trump campaign.
In an effort to be “transparent,” Donald, Jr. tweeted screenshots of the emails he received prior to the meeting.
Donald, Jr. has agreed to testify in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee to answer any questions regarding his role in the Russia collusion scandal.
