The question everyone is asking now, “What did the president know, and when did he know it.”
Well, that question just took a new turn.
When Donald Trump, Jr. was contacted by Russian music publicist Rob Goldstone with documents that would “incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia,” Donald Trump Jr. responded “I love it.”
The New York Times reported that the June 3, 2016, email went on to say: “This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.”
As The Times published its report on the emails, Trump Jr. posted the correspondences on Twitter. The article goes on to describe Donald Trump as eager to accept help from the Russian government.
The Trump White House has firmly denied any collusion with Russian agents who have been accused of meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
However, Donald Trump DOES KNOW the people in question. Take a look:

Is that Donald Jr. seated next to Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya?
Is that Donald Jr. seated next to Emin Agalarov, son of billionaire Aras Agalarov, who is a Russian oligarch and good friend of Vladimir Putin?
Is that Donald Jr. seated next to Rob Goldstone, the conduit for the meeting with Natalia Veselnitskaya?
It’s Donald Trump himself.
From Daily Kos:
To throw another log on the intrigue fire, consider for one moment that the meeting Don Jr. arranged with Natalia Veselnitskaya also involved the highest people in the Trump campaign—Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort. The meeting took place two weeks after Trump secured the Republican nomination. They spent the day meeting with Reince Preibus and the Republican National Committee for the campaign’s first “finance meeting.” They were jump-starting their Republican National Convention planning. In other words, they were super, super busy. And yet, Don Jr. was able to get Kushner and Manafort to drop everything for the meeting with Veselnitskaya. So perhaps it was someone other than Don Jr. who ordered his top lieutenants to attend?
