Donald Trump Jr. releases email chain from meet with Russian lawyer
(Worthy News) – Donald Trump Jr. on Tuesday released the entire email chain that arranged a meeting between himself and a Russian lawyer that show he was offered “high level and sensitive information” which came from within the Russian government and was said to be of help to his father’s presidential campaign.
President Trump’s eldest son said he released the emails for the sake of transparency but the disclosure set off a new firestorm of controversy for the Trump team by firmly establishing that the campaign had been willing to glean dirt on rival Hillary Clinton from a foreign power.
The email chain from June 2016 largely supports the younger Mr. Trump’s earlier story that he agreed to the meeting after being told he would receive information damaging to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. [ Source: Washington Times ]

Emin just called and asked me to contact you with something very interesting.
The Crown prosecutor of Russia met with his father Aras this morning and in their meeting offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and be very useful to your father.
This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr Trump – helped along by Aras and Emin.
What do you think is the best way to handle this information and would you be able to speak to Emin about it directly?
I can also send this info to your father via Rhona, but it is ultra sensitive so wanted to send to you first.

Thanks Rob I appreciate that. I am on the road at the moment but perhaps I just speak to Emin first. Seems we have some time and if it’s what you say I love it especially later in the summer. Could we do a call first thing next week when I am back?

Hope all is well
Emin asked that I schedule a meeting with you and The Russian government attorney who is flying over from Moscow for this Thursday.
I believe you are aware of the meeting – and so wondered if 3pm or later on Thursday works for you?
I assume it would be at your office.
