President Donald Trump revealed his true feelings this week about the “scandal” involving his eldest son’s meeting with a Russian lawyer — and it wasn’t what the liberals were hoping for.
During a news conference Thursday with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris, the president defended Donald Trump Jr. and said the meeting his son had with lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya was not improper or illegal.
“This was not a government lawyer but a Russian lawyer,” the president said.
“It was a short meeting. I think from a practical standpoint, I think most people would’ve taken that meeting. It’s called opposition research,” he continued.
“Nothing happened from the meeting,” he said. “I think the press made a big deal over something that really a lot of people would do.”
Trump then pointed to a more interesting aspect of Veselnitskaya — that she had been allowed into the United States by former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
The Hill reported that the Obama Justice Department allowed Veselnitskaya into the United States in 2015 without a visa.
Of course, the mainstream media would rather not focus on how the Obama administration could be linked to this lawyer — or the rounds of lobbying she engaged in before meeting with Trump Jr.. They’d rather publish fake news about the Trump campaign allegedly “colluding” Russia.
Take a look at the president’s remarks:
This interview is not the first time Trump has come out in defense of his son, and it probably won’t be the last, considering how the mainstream media is itching to get some kind of story on Trump and Russia. There’s no doubt the liberal media would love to have seen Trump rattled in a situation like this, but it’s clear it wasn’t going to happen.
No matter how hard Democrats and the media might try, it doesn’t look like the meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and Veselnitskaya is going to be the smoking gun they were hoping for. To quote CNN host and former Obama White House “green jobs czar” Van Jones, this meeting is turning out to look like the rest of the collusion narrative — a “nothing burger.”
But if the past serves as any indicator, that won’t keep the liberal media from trying to dig up something else on Trump.
