Trump World Grab-Bag--A Collection

This is a Family TrumpWorld Grab-Bag

When I posted my last Grab-Bag post last night, Trump, Jr. was saying that the meeting with Natalia Veselnitskaya had something to do with Russian adoptions, but his most recent statement (which might not be his final word on this, so stay tuned) makes a lot more sense even if it is problematic: he met with this person, and asked Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort to attend, because she was supposed to have some good dirt on Hillary Clinton. This makes sense, because the Trump campaign was looking for some dirt right about then.

So, Donald Trump, Jr. has just admitted he and members of the campaign sought out a Russian to get negative information to help the Trump campaign. Huh!

Now, Jr's story also indicates that what Veselnitskaya gave him was basically trash and she was more interested in lobbying--but it is a little interesting that the meet-up was arranged through some of Trump père's acquaintances who know him since at least the Miss Universe pageant in Moscow, circa 2013.
