Some of you don’t find this plausible. I do, because I don’t think DJT Jr is that bright. https://t.co/Tfros6RXI8— Liz Mair (@LizMair) May 16, 2018
hi just to restate the blaringly obvious but it is wildly unbelievable that the president’s son, son-in-law, and campaign chief took a campaign-related meeting with foreign nationals and never once clued in Trump — Simon Maloy (@SimonMaloy) May 16, 2018
This would be a good time to remind everyone that Trump tweeted about Hillary’s emails minutes after Donald Jr’s meeting with the Russians was over. https://t.co/IZRGQA5b8l — Amy Siskind (@Amy_Siskind) May 16, 2018
Trump Jr. admitted that he “loved” getting dirt on Clinton, but when he was asked whether he also loved the Russian government’s support for Trump, he said “I don’t recall” and claims he didn’t understand that would be problematic.

Q: Do you know anything about Trump people meeting Russia people?
DON JR: No not at all!
Q: But it’s been all over the news for months
DON JR: Okay yeah gimme a redo on that question. I read about it after the fact.
DON JR: And oh yeah I also knew they were happening at the time. pic.twitter.com/2GdEMF4S0A — Susan Simpson (@TheViewFromLL2) May 16, 2018

Pinning your hopes on Don Jr.’s discretion and candor seems a really iffy call. — Noah Rothman (@NoahCRothman) May 16, 2018
