Holy Sh*t, Trump Jr. Is Tweeting Out Damning Info That Could Incriminate Him

A bombshell report was published revealing that Donald Trump Jr. has his own email scandal. Junior has found himself the focus of his Daddy’s Russian scandal after it was found that before he arranged a meeting with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer he believed would offer him damaging information about Hillary Clinton, the former reality show star’s son Russian government effort to help his father’s campaign.

Junior isn’t a very bright man. In fact, former staffers as the precise ‘opposite of political savvy.”

Offering further proof of that on Tuesday, Junior just released the entire set of emails between himself and music publicist Rob Goldstone, who set up the meeting with the Russian lawyer. But Junior didn’t think this through and it’s clear that he didn’t speak to his lawyer before tweeting out the copies of the emails which contain promises of support from “Russia and its government for Mr. Trump.”

The emails also confirm that Goldstone let Junior know that the meeting was it was “Part of Russia.”

“The Crown prosecutor of Russia… offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father,” Goldstone wrote in the email to Junior. “This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.”

Junior replied,  “Thanks Rob, I appreciate it,” then said he wanted to “do a call first thing next week” when he got back in town while on the campaign trail for his father.

First he tweeted, “Media & Dems are extremely invested in the Russia story. If this nonsense meeting is all they have after a yr, I understand the desperation!”

Then he started tweeting copies of the email exchange.

I think this Twitter user put it best.

It looks like Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort are in trouble, too.

Aaaand none of the emails Junior released will help him. But it will help prosecutors. It also confirms that Junior read the emails that were sent to him and they didn’t just remain in his inbox unread.

The reason Junior released the emails is because he was caught. The New York Times before he tweeted the copies that the paper obtained them.
