I know some of you think I've been watching too much MSNBC but I think Trump has some new problems.
It turns out Trump's campaign met with a Russian lawyer because they though she had dirt on Hillary Clinton.
That, by itself, is no big deal. The problem is they thought this lawyer was working for the Russian government.
What's worse, the guy they sent to the meeting was none other than Trump Jr. The man who sits at the left hand of power. (Ivanka is on the right, naturally.)
It's impossible to fathom Tump was not aware of the meeting or the circumstances surrounding it.
Is this collusion? No, because everyone admits there was no damaging information shared at the meeting. But it does show an ATTEMPT by the Trump campaign to get information from a representative working for the Russian government about a political opponent.
That is going to cause Trump some problems.
Naturally, he's going to come out clean. That's what presidents do. But it proves the claims that some Trump campaign officials DID seek to sway the election with the help of the Russians.
