    Look who pops up in corrupting the Swiss official investigating Russian organised crime...

    https://www.thedailybeast.com/trump-...orruption-case
    He was told not to go by his boss, ostensibly because he was working too much overtime, but he made the trip anyway, using his diplomatic passport to fly to the Russian capital. There, he was put up in a luxury hotel and asked to attend an unexpected meeting with Veselnitskaya.

    In the case against K.—who had been entrusted with investigating the Swiss financial arrangements of the Russian mafia and oligarchs for decades—it emerged that he had previously met Karapetyan in Geneva and Zurich, as well as Russia “without the knowledge of his superiors.”

    4:04 PM: Emin Agalarov calls Don Jr. to discuss Veselnitskaya meeting
    4:27: Don. Jr has a four minute call with someone at a blocked number
    4:31: Don Jr. calls back Agalarov

    He told Senate investigators he didn't remember who was on that second
    So sweet, talking to Daddy ...Mueller can of course unmask numbers...

    Yeah, the Trump Tower meeting itself is almost certainly not a violation of the Espionage Act, though it seems likely to build towards other charges

    That said, when this all calms down, some strict liability statute around politicians dealing with spooks/foreign parties would be prudent

    At a minimum disclose significant contacts

    We didn't meet at Trump Tower.
    ....Okay we met, but it was about adoptions.

    ....Okay it was providing intel on Clinton, but we disapproved.

    ....Okay we totally approved, but the intel was disappointing, so no collusion.

    ....Okay we totally colluded -- but that's not illegal!

    is this a genuine tweet?

    https://mobile.twitter.com/Plantflow...140672/photo/1

    Did Trump seriously tweet about the emails just 10 mins after Junior left a call with Russians and put a 4 min call into a "unknown number" after speaking with the Russians?
    There is reckless and then there is downright deranged

    Junior got a stiffy when Russians told him about the emails, jumped on a call to Daddy to share the dirt, and then the raving imbecile showing all the lack of restraint and discipline that he always has, blurted it out on twitter
    Bonkers

    If Mueller can pin that call on Trump then you would have to think this thing is going to explode

    The tweet is a transcript of Don Jnr's testimony before Congress

    Daddy Trump always calls from a blocked number

    The Russians didn’t give them that dirt on Clinton.

    Either they were feeling them out (given the links over decades I’m not sure why they needed to do that) or they were discussing the Magnitsky Act (aka “adoptions”).

    Adoptions was the code word they used for sanctions - busting the Magnitsky Act.

    A lawyer, a spy and a money launderer walk into a bar. The bartender looks up and says, “Oh, you must be here to talk about adoption.”
