Trump Jr. invents fake 'privilege' to justify stonewalling Congress

08 December 2017

Scott Balber, the attorney for Kaveladze, confirms his client received the email but viewed it as odd because hacking was never discussed in the meeting and it was not consistent with what was discussed. Trump Jr. spoke with his father shortly after the news about the meeting broke in July 2017, but declined to share details of their discussion with lawmakers. Republican members, however, said that they felt that Donald Trump Jr. had been forthcoming, according to a report by the New York Times.

During a scrum with reporters following Wednesday's hearing, Schiff told reporters he didn't think Trump Jr.'s invocation of attorney-client privilege was appropriate.

Congressional investigators have uncovered emails that indicate parties involved in the June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower had subsequent communication after their summit, CNN reported Thursday. But the bottom line is that if what this lawyer is telling us today is true, there is absolutely no question left that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation.

The episode also features Jesse Plemons ( Fargo , Breaking Bad ), Michaela Coel ( Chewing Gum ), and Jimmi Simpson ( Westworld ). In the Black Museum , the owner and proprietor promises that "If [an object] did something bad, chances are, it's in here".

The letter requested that the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is conducting its own investigation into the 2016 election and President Trump's dismissal of then-FBI Director James Comey "issue a subpoena to compel him [Trump Jr.] to fully account for his actions in front of the American people and to provide this committee with the documents we need to fulfill our important oversight responsibilities".

According to testimony filed with the Senate Judiciary Committee, Natalia Veselnitskaya, the attorney that met with Donald Trump, June 2016, Trump Jr. was absolutely meeting with her in order to obtain dirt on Hillary Clinton.

Mueller has also shown interest in the White House response to the meeting once it became public. Trump Jr. has said he did not follow up on the meeting.

House overwhelmingly votes to defeat Democrat's bid to impeach President Trump
House minority leader Nancy Pelosi has advised Democrats to exercise caution and wait until sufficient evidence that Trump committed an impeachable offense turns up.

Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law, attended the meeting with several Russians under the impression that they might receive damaging information about Trump's rival, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Given all of this, the conversations that Trump Jr. may have had with his father both before and after this meeting are relevant to the Russia investigation because they go to the question of what Trump may have known about efforts by high-ranking officials in his campaign about contact with Russian officials and when he may have known it. Additionally, exactly what role did Trump play in drafting the statement that was initially released earlier this year that claimed, incorrectly, that the intent of the meeting had been to discuss the adoption of Russian orphans by American couples and the restrictions that had been placed on that program in the wake of the Russian takeover of Crimea? He acknowledged discussing that matter with his father, but refused to answer questions about that discussion on the basis of attorney-client privilege. No court would take any such use of attorney-client privilege to be anything but laughable.

In one email, according to the report, Goldstone urged Scavino to have Trump create a page on VK, a Russian-based social media website, and told him that "Don and Paul" supported the idea, referring to Trump Jr. and Paul Manafort, then Trump's campaign chair. Additionally, a conversation that includes a party and his attorney along with a third party that the attorney does not represent would generally not be considered privileged. No defense attorney with half a brain is going to allow that.
