Massive over-reach: there is no smoking gun. There’s an honest admission that Donald trump Junior met a woman who claimed to have proof that Hillary Clinton had broken the law. If that had been true, it would have been his duty to pass the information on to the authorities: it was his duty to investigate whether it was true. It wasn’t: the woman was just a Lobbyist, and gave him nothing. He volunteered this information to show his honesty and transparency, perhaps in case it came to light later and his concealing it showed him in a bad light. Rather than a smoking gun, it is his proof of innocence: if he had colluded with the Russian government in illegal acts, he wouldn’t have released the emails. We should be congratulating DT Jr; Hillary Clinton’s emails proving her illegal acts had to come to us via Wikileaks, never voluntarily.
