Donald Trump Jr. released the email exchange between himself and Rob Goldstone, a music producer who represents Russian pop star Emin Agalarov and who the media claim has ties to both Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin. Although, as a music producer and publicist working for Russian music talent in New York, it is unremarkable that the man has met with or had communications with prominent figures in both Russia and New York City.
The released emails contain this line: “The Crown prosecutor of Russia met with [Agalarov’s] father Aras this morning and their meeting offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia would be very useful to your father.” In another email, the publicist claims, “This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.”
We now know that Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who met with Trump, was lying. Her real aim was to get into the meeting and essentially push for repeal of an adoption law in the US which the Russians objected to. Further, we know, she achieved nothing of substance.
What is more, she has ties to the same Democrat-affiliated opposition research firm that allegedly created the fake Russian dossier on Trump, which John McCain peddled.
“We have learned from both our own investigation and public reports that the participants in the meeting misrepresented who they were and who they worked for,” according to Mark Corallo, who represents President Trump’s legal team. “Specifically, we have learned that the person who sought the meeting is associated with Fusion GPS, a firm which according to public reports, was retained by Democratic operatives to develop opposition research on the President and which commissioned the phony Steele dossier. ”
So we have a meeting set up in June of 2016 by someone who claimed to have dirt on Hillary from the Russian government, someone affiliated with the same firm that allegedly tried to frame Trump with a fake dossier?
The real question this raises: if the Trump campaign had been “colluding” with the Russians all this time, why would they even be interested in such a meeting? And what campaign official in their right mind would not explore information on their opponent, regardless of its source?
What this meeting shows is that the Trump campaign had no connection to the Russian government, it was willing to hear someone out who claimed a connection and that they had dirt, and that it took less than a half hour to see that this was nothing.
What would the campaign have done if there really was information from Russia? We will never know, and you cannot ethically prosecute someone legally or in the court of public opinion based on such speculation.
But, of course, the inaccurate media whose constant journalistic errors are always leaning against Trump, won’t care. They now present this as “proof” of some sinister “collusion”, when in fact it was a fake meeting arranged under fake pretenses by someone who is associated with a firm that uses such methods to sling mud at political opponents.
In the end, if the Trump campaign and the Russians were so close, this meeting, fake on all counts, would never have occurred. Trump would already have the so-called “dirt” and his people would already know this woman was not in on the plot.
The Donald Trump Jr. emails do reveal deception. The campaign was deceived by a woman connected to the same firm that allegedly invented a fake Russia dossier against the President and evidently a publicist they thought was a friend, into holding a meeting based on a totally false pretense to pursue an agenda that was simply rejected. That is the only deception here.
Chuck Schumer Threatens Supreme Court Justices: “You Will Pay the Price”
Chuck Schumer outright threatened two Supreme Court Justices when speaking at a pro-abortion event on Wednesday, using vengeful and vindictive language when discussing recent pro-life court case rulings reached by the court.
“I want to tell you, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh…. You have unleashed the whirlwind, and you will pay the price! You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
Such rhetoric might be expected in one of Kim Jong Un’s regular missive of threats against the United States. But it’s shocking to hear a sitting Senate Majority Leader slam nonpartisan Supreme Court Justices in such a bold fashion, totally disregarding the court’s traditional independence from everyday politics.
The rally by a pro-abortion group was being held in advance of an expected court ruling on a Louisiana abortion law. The law requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at state hospitals.
Republican legislators slammed Schumer for his irresponsible and threatening rhetoric at the abortion rally after footage of his language was seen on Twitter.
Did Senate Democrat leader Schumer just threaten two conservative justices? Where is the media?

Schumer may have been alluding to potential Democratic plans to impeach Kavanaugh, and possibly even Gorsuch, removing them from the Supreme Court. The Court’s now conservative majority has placed a major stumbling block in the way of the Left’s preferred strategy of seizing power through judicial activism.
Schumer’s unprecedented language, especially coming from a senior party official who should remain level-headed, demonstrates the Democratic Party’s willing to cast aside all formal norms of federal politics and government. They’re willing to do whatever it takes in order to get their way.
