Donald Trump Jr

Will email scandal finally open Trump supporters’ eyes?

Donald Trump Jr., while a senior adviser to his father’s presidential campaign, met with a lawyer who he was told represented the Russian government, and did so in an effort to damage Hillary Clinton and help Trump Sr. win the presidency.

The meeting, which was attended by Trump Jr., then-Trump campaign boss Paul Manafort, and Trump son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, took place in June of last year. Afterward, Donald Trump, his sons and his spokespeople repeatedly denied any connections between the campaign and the Russians.

But we now know, based on an email string that was released by Trump Jr. and the New York Times, that the denials were misleading at best, and outright lies at worst. Not only did Trump Jr. know that the meeting was with a woman he believed to be connected to the Russian government. According to the emails, he also believed that the dirt he was expecting to receive on Clinton was “part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump …”

That, my friends, would appear to be collusion. But the worst part is the strange, almost trance-like state of denial that has gripped Trump’s largely white base of support.
