In June 2016, Donald Trump Jr. met with a Russian government-affiliated lawyer whom he was told had damaging disclosures about Hillary Clinton that "would be very useful to your father.” Subsequent email exchanges show Trump Jr. was eager to accept help, and specifically notes “Russia and its government’s support” for his father’s presidential campaign. Trump's critics say this bombshell is the smoking gun, but the White House insists there was no collusion. Did Don Jr. commit treason? 🇷🇺

It's perhaps the biggest bombshell yet in the Trump-Russia scandal. From the Washington Post:

The email exchange showed clearly that Trump Jr. understood he was taking the meeting as a way of channeling information directly from the government of a nation hostile to the United States to his father’s campaign. It is the most concrete public evidence to date suggesting that top Trump campaign aides were eager for Russia’s assistance in the campaign.

And whether or not Trump Jr. received actionable information, many experienced government officials are saying his actions go beyond collusion—they're treasonous.

But the Trump camp insists the accusations of collusion and treason are overblown. Having a meeting to hear possible opposition research on your opponent is just what campaigns do.

The president's son dismissed the accusations as partisan hysteria.
