Sad.

There’s hot breaking news in the saga of Donald Trump Jr. trying to do Russian collusion for his daddy, but failing just like he does with everything else in his life. When we first learned about BabyShits McTrumpenstuff’s meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, he said he agreed to it so they could talk about how nobody is allowed to adopt poor abandoned Russian babies anymore. Then he changed his story and said, “Oh yeah, actually I took the meeting because this friend of my dad’s said the Russian lady had some hot hard Hillary Clinton gossip to share. But she didn’t have any hot hard Hillary gossip, ALLEGEDLY, so we talked about Russian babies instead.”

Now it turns out, according to the New York Times (which has been leading the way on this story, surprisingly), that before agreeing to the meeting, his “acquaintance,” Rob Goldstone (a British music publicist for the son of Trump Senior’s oligarch pal we’ll get to later), emailed Lickspittle Junior to say the hot hard Hillary gossip Veselnitskaya had was literally “part of a Russian government effort to aid his father’s candidacy, according to three people familiar with the email.” WHOA. IF. TRUE. This was before we learned about Russia’s hacking of the Democratic National Committee.

This means that, quite literally, a Trump pal with ties to the Kremlin emailed DiaperLumps Junior and told him, “Hey! A foreign enemy nation wants to illegally help your dad win the presidency by feeding you salacious shit about his opponent, Hillary Clinton. You game for a little bareback collusion?” And Junior was like “OH YES, BRING ME THE PRECIOUS! I WILL BRING PAUL MANAFORT AND MY BROTHER-IN-LAW JARED TOO!” Um … go to jail, Junior?

For background, Goldstone, who was also at the Trump Tower meeting in June 2016, represents Emin Agalarov — known simply as Emin — who is one of the sexxx kings of Russian sexxx music, like he is their Bruno Mars or their Michael Bolton, we guess. He was reportedly the one who wanted Young PoopyKnickers Trump to meet with Veselnitskaya. Emin’s dad, Aras Agalarov, is a Russian oligarch who is super close to Vladimir Putin:

The senior Agalarov is one of Russia’s richest men; Putin awarded him the Order of Honor, one of the country’s top civilian awards, in 2013. Aras Agalarov is often called the “Donald Trump of Russia.” […]

Donald Trump’s links to the Agalarovs date to the Miss Universe contest in Moscow in 2013, which the father and son had wanted to bring to the Russian capital. Trump, who owned the contest at the time, had long pursued the idea of a Trump Tower in Moscow, though that deal never happened …

According to The Atlantic, Trump appeared in one of Emin’s music videos, he’s referred to Emin as a “winner” and a “champ,” and Emin told Forbes back in March that “Now that [Trump] ran and was elected, he does not forget his friends.” Finally, a president who loves his Russian friends more than he loves America! #MAGA

Baby Trump’s lawyer Alan Futerfas — and really, it was about time he lawyered up — says all of this is “much ado about nothing,” that Daddy Trump didn’t even know about the meeting (even though he was in Trump Tower at the time, and he tweeted about Hillary’s alleged 33,000 “missing emails” that very day), and besides, “nothing came of it.” Because we guess it’s only a crime if you actually complete the act of collusion. If you blow your load early, no harm no foul, happens to all guys, right?

Little Mini Whiskers Trump also weighed in on Twitter Tuesday morning:

Donald Trump Jr. is just like his dad — the world’s shittiest client, who steps on his own dick on Twitter.

NBC News interviewed Natalia Veselnitskaya on Tuesday, where she shared details about her meeting with Pussgrab Junior. She confirmed Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner were also there, but said Jared left early and Manafort just played with his phone the whole time. She said she never pretended to have sexxxy incriminating information on Hillary, and that she doesn’t work for the Russian government. While that may be technically true, it’s important to remember that many people on the Kremlin’s take are not employees per se, but work as Russian agents in myriad other ways. Veselnitskaya is not just some also-ran who wanted to talk about Russian babies. She’s in DEEP, and she’s well known as an agent for Kremlin interests. (For more on that, read this excellent Washington Monthly report by Martin Longman.)

A funny part of the Veselnitskaya interview was when she gave her take on why the Boychild Trump might have been so eager to shake her down for anti-Hillary gossip:

“It is quite possible that maybe they were longing for such an information. They wanted it so badly that they could only hear the thought that they wanted.”

He wanted it sooooo bad! He was like a junkie, looking for his next fix, of sweet, beautiful Hillary hate! And if he didn’t get it, HE MIGHT HAVE DIED.

SO! What have we learned?

Here’s our takeaway on this so far. Donald Trump Jr. got the message that “Hey! Russia has been doing all kinds of spying/hacking to help your dad, and they’re looking for the dumbest fucking idiot possible to serve as a gateway to using it to influence the election. Are you that dumb fucking idiot we’re looking for?” And he said “OK!”

In the two instances of collusion or attempted collusion between Trumpo-American citizens and Russia we’ve learned about so far, there’s a common thread, and it’s American citizens completely infected with metastatic, irrational Clinton hate. The first instance involved longtime Clinton hater Peter W. Smith, now a dead corpse, who bragged he was working with Michael Flynn to try to get the mythological 33,000 deleted Hillary emails from Russia. Now we have a Kremlin-connected pal of Daddy Trump arranging a meeting between a Russian lawyer lady and BabyStupid Trump, by giving the impression that maybe she had some SICK NASTY DIRT about Hillary to share.

Russia has been spying on and trying to mess with American elections for years. Why did it work SO WELL in 2016? We have a gut feeling that, as we learn more and more about the true extent of collusion between Trump and Russia — because this is probably just the tip of the iceberg — this common thread of Russia targeting people sick with Clinton-hating disease is going to continue. It just makes sense.

Do you have any doubt that people infected with that malady wouldn’t commit treason just to make sure that bitch stays in her place? Didn’t think so.

UPDATE: Junior has now tweeted out all the emails between him and Goldstone. SPOILER: They incriminate the fuck out of Junior.

    With last night’s report in the Times, I think we are officially past the point of the ‘was there collusion’ question. There was. The President’s son now has the barest argument that he tried to get damaging information about Hillary Clinton which he was told came from a Russian government campaign to help his father become president, only to find it was insufficient.

    To me this seems like a generally meaningless and highly implausible distinction and claim. We are now into the territory not of ‘was there collusion or contact’ but how substantial was it.

    From Palmer Report:

    “First came the report that Junior had met with a Kremlin operative during the campaign. So he admitted to it, but he claimed the meeting was about adoption. Then the next day came the escalating report that the meeting was about dirt on Hillary Clinton. So Junior admitted to that as well, but he tried to retain a sliver of legal deniability by claiming that he didn’t know the meeting was going to be with a Kremlin operative. And then came the devastating third report about an email which proved Junior knew in advance that the meeting would be about getting dirt on Hillary from the Kremlin.

    “By using this rope-a-dope strategy, the New York Times source has managed to get Donald Trump Jr. to change his story repeatedly. And as any prosecutor will tell you, significantly changing ones story is evidence of consciousness of guilt. So Junior is effectively incriminating himself in a manner that goes beyond the incriminating facts being reported about him. This is turning out to be far more devastating for him than if the story had all surfaced at once, as he could have at least had the benefit of not having lied about it multiple times along the way.”

    I wish the Russia hacking was only limited to Trump.

    A Republican political operative in Florida asked the alleged Russian hacker who broke into Democratic Party organizations’ servers at the height of the 2016 campaign to pass him stolen documents, according to a report Thursday by the Wall Street Journal.

    In return, that operative received valuable Democratic voter-turnout analyses, which the newspaper found at least one GOP campaign consultant took advantage of the information.

    SNIP

    Cybersecurity experts were sounding the alarm as early as last July that Guccifer 2.0, which had tapped into both the Democratic National Committee and the Democratic National Campaign Committee, was connected to the Russian military intelligence apparatus. However, in September, Florida GOP consultant Aaron Nevins wrote to Guccifer 2.0 to tell the hacker to “feel free to send any Florida based information,” according to the Journal.

    Guccifer 2.0 ended up passing Nevins 2.5 gigabytes of stolen documents, including information about Democrats’ get-out-the-vote strategy in Florida and other swing states, the Journal reported. Nevins then posted the documents on his blog, HelloFLA.com, under a pseudonym.

    http://talkingpointsmemo.com/dc/anthony-nevins-roger-stone-stolen-democratic-voter-analyses

    A report claims information hacked from Democrats during the presidential race also played a role in U.S. Rep. Brian Mast’s Treasure Coast race, an allegation his office denies.

    Mast’s former political consultant told the Wall Street Journal he adjusted the Republican candidate’s campaign strategy based on Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee data leaked by hacker “Guccifer 2.0″ in August, according to a Thursday story.

    “I did adjust some voting targets based on some data I saw from the leaks,” consultant Anthony Bustamante is quoted saying in the article.

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2017/05/26/report-brian-mast-consultant-used-hacked-data/349155001/

    Brian Mast won a close race, in 2016, in a D+ district and there’s a ton of smoke swirling about that his campaign colluded with Russia.

    The full extent of the Russians trying to push the GOP over the finish line may never be known. Trump is just the tip of the iceberg.

          It’s tenuous, but here’s a connection:

          “1. The family’s $100 billion fortune comes mostly from a massive network of oil and gas pipelines, and investments in other polluting industries like paper and plastics. The brothers inherited the seed money for their holdings from their father Fred Koch, who made his first fortune building oil pipelines for the Russian dictator Joseph Stalin in the 1930s. Back in the states, Fred Koch supported racial segregation and white supremacist groups like the John Birch Society.”

            Fred hated the Soviets. He made a lot of money off them, but then they stiffed him and pushed him out of the business. He never forgave them for it. Hitler paid him, and Fred never forgot that either. Two facts which explain far more about the Koch brothers’ politics than they would prefer to acknowledge,

    Before it’s all said and done, we’re going to find out that loan forgiveness was a big part of the motivation for Trump. The Roosekies have a lot of paper with Trump and his idiot spawns signatures on it, and they were undoubtedly dangling the prospect of ripping it up if they could get those sanctions lifted. The Trump tax returns will be key to proving all this, but only part of the proof that Mueller and his friends will be turning up. Stay tuned. This is going to be fun in the shadenfruede way.

      Loan forgiveness and more business in Russia. I have always strongly believed that Trump is in the White House only to further his pocket book. He couldn’t care less about the American people and certainly has shown no interest in actually doing anything that normal Presidents do.

  • Michael Smith

    This woman is so much smarter than them. I mean, even if she’s lying (which she probably is), her guess as to why they would think she wanted to talk about the emails is much more believable than anything that comes out of the Trump camp. This suggests that the Russians are frequently asking themselves “What should we say if/when information about these meetings and correspondence become public knowledge?”

    Whereas the Trump strategy has been more “No one will ever find out.” And then when it comes out, they just say its all lies. Then when it becomes clear that it wasn’t lies, they downplay the significance and hope that their supporters aren’t swayed by the obvious display of chicanery and dishonesty. And so far, they’ve been right.

    And its becoming unfortunately clear that when a good portion of the electorate doesn’t care whether the President and his people are criminals, or believes that such criminality is necessary to combat the evil ideology of liberalism, then there’s not much the government can do about it.

  • Poorly Behaved Pérsistanista

    The NYT has seen the emails: Stick a fork in them. They’re done.

    The June 3, 2016, email sent to Donald Trump Jr. could hardly have been more explicit: One of his father’s former Russian business partners had been contacted by a senior Russian government official and was offering to provide the Trump campaign with dirt on Hillary Clinton.

    The documents “would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father,” read the email, written by a trusted intermediary, who added, “This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.”

    If the future president’s elder son was surprised or disturbed by the provenance of the promised material — or the notion that it was part of an ongoing effort by the Russian government to aid his father’s campaign — he gave no indication.

    He replied within minutes: “If it’s what you say I love it especially later in the summer.”

    Four days later, after a flurry of emails, the intermediary wrote back, proposing a meeting in New York on Thursday with a “Russian government attorney.”

    Donald Trump Jr. agreed, adding that he would likely bring along “Paul Manafort (campaign boss)” and “my brother-in-law,” Jared Kushner, now one of the president’s closest White House advisers.

    On June 9, the Russian lawyer was sitting in the younger Mr. Trump’s office on the 25th floor of Trump Tower, just one level below the office of the future president.

      I am totally convinced that the “pee hooker” tape is not what DJT’s worried about–there’s something far, far worse on tape. Pee hookers is nothing. Him being pounded by a large Russian mafia guy, and crying out in pleasure? A dead hooker? Him being made to believe he murdered the hooker and begging for anything to get off the hook, then being pounded? A close up of the micro-peen? It’s got to be something soul-destroying for him to have been so willing to sell out an entire country. Or he could just sell out the country because it makes him feel big and he can get some bucks out of it, I suppose.

    Donald Trump Jr. released what he says are screen grabs of the full email chain allegedly arranging the meeting between him and a Russian attorney who allegedly had damaging information about Hillary Clinton.

    The meeting took place at Trump Tower on June 9, 2016, and was arranged by Rob Goldstone, an acquaintance of Trump’s.

    Trump posted a statement about the situation as well as three pages of emails between him and Goldstone, saying in the statement that he was doing so “in order to be totally transparent.”

  • BigCSouthside

    I can’t wrap my head around why Junior is doing this. Any ideas?

    • Persistent Tennessee Rain

      Because he’s going to let the press run with it and then say, “Neener, neener, to all you stupids out there who thought this was real.” That, of course, would destroy the First Amendment as we know it. Also too, I don’t think he’s smart enough for that.

    • Persistent Tennessee Rain

      Okay, never mind. My reasoning was way too complicated for that simpleton. It turns out that he was beating the NYT to the punch.

    • NastyBossetti

      There’s something even worse about to drop, and he’s trying to take some of the pressure off?

      They think all the pressure disappears once Mueller gets a sacrificial lamb, and Donnie pardons junior?

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/11/us/politics/trump-russia-email-clinton.html

    The June 3, 2016, email sent to Donald Trump Jr. could hardly have been more explicit: One of his father’s former Russian business partners had been contacted by a senior Russian government official and was offering to provide the Trump campaign with dirt on Hillary Clinton.

    The documents “would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father,” read the email, written by a trusted intermediary, who added, “This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.”

    If the future president’s elder son was surprised or disturbed by the provenance of the promised material — or the notion that it was part of an ongoing effort by the Russian government to aid his father’s campaign — he gave no indication.

    He replied within minutes: “If it’s what you say I love it especially later in the summer.”

    Four days later, after a flurry of emails, the intermediary wrote back, proposing a meeting in New York on Thursday with a “Russian government attorney.”

    At least Benedict Arnold was a hero at Saratoga.

    • Cat Cafe for the Prosecution

      I know! He was a big contributor to our winning the Revolutionary War, and was mistreated and derided by Washington, which ultimately drove him to switch to the British, which people forget, at the time, we WERE British, and many of us WERE on the British side.

    The Trump family may live in a post-Truth universe, but the majority of the American people still value Truth and the Justice that it serves.

    • AnnieGetYerFun

      It pains me to say this, but I agree with him.

      • ViveLaResistance!

        Shhh…don’t let the purity ponies find out.

        • AnnieGetYerFun

          I mean, I want to see Trump (AOTK) behind bars, but leaping at every single hint and assuming that THIS IS FINALLY THE THING that will bring Trump down is exhausting and futile.

          • ViveLaResistance!

            To paraphrase Longfellow (a fellow Maine-uh) – The mills grind slow, but exceedingly small…and Mueller has a bunch of top shelf people to do the grinding.

      • Celtic_Gnome

        I’m too cynical to agree with him. There are far too many documented events where that same let’s-wait-and-see attitude would have been completely appropriate, and he was the one leading the charge to pillory whoever in question who just happened t have a D after their name.

        Once again, let’s wait and see only applies to Republicans.

        Fuck Jonah.

        • AnnieGetYerFun

          Oh, Jonah can certainly go fuck himself in the ear. It’s just that this one point, I happen to agree with.

  • Persistent Tennessee Rain

    Please, someone tell me that this is the part where Republicans in the Senate and Congress finally say, “Fuck this shit,” and start doing what they can to fix this lest they get the stink upon themselves for all eternity. Please???

    • LeighBowery’sLuxuryComedy

      Yeah but no – the stink for all eternity is the gilding on the lily, to my mind.

      • Celtic_Gnome

        The entire GOP already has that stink on them. You don’t buy a ticket and expect to get off in the middle of the ride.

  • Panika MCD

    heck, if the BoBs had access, they would have used it, too, seeing as they had no problem sharing the bullshit that was targeted to them.

  • Canis Greyhame

    People go to jail all the time in police sting operations designed to catch them in the act of buying drugs, prostitutes, and/or illegal weaponry. So here we have a similar situation with Donny Jr. showing up all ready to commit treason, and he didn’t even ask if she was a cop! You have to tell him if you’re a cop.

  • VirginiaWackelpudding

    The actual good thing about this freakshow is the absolute proof that Hillz did NOTHING wrong. If she had it would have been all over the universe by now. They all got nuthin. Besides our electoral college they were the biggest suckers. That feels very good.

  • OrdinaryJoe

    Natalia Veselnitskaya should be a name that is never gets a visa to enter the US again. Her bigger problem is she knows too much, a position that puts her in real jeopardy in Putin’s Russia. You can see in her eyes in that interview that she knows her position is precarious. And what’s with her statement: “They wanted it so badly,” referring it seems to the oppoinfo they thought she could bring to them on HRC. It’s like she just said, “They were begging for dirt.”

  • sgt. jmk of the résistance

    “UPDATE: Junior has now tweeted out all the emails between him and Goldstone. SPOILER: They incriminate the fuck out of Junior.”

    And STILL, the Trumplemorans are squawking “a big nothing burger, bwaaak, a big nothing burger” all over the public airwaves.

    These people are unreachable by logic, decency, or facts.

  • He should have slogan put on his underwear

  • akryan

    Another thing that all of this shows, is that Hillary didn’t actually have much, if any, dirt to find. As much as they were trying to find that unicorn, all they ever got was horse shit.

    • But really, it was dumb for them to think she’d have any dirt. She’s been under investigation for most of my lifetime. Anything she’s ever done plus a million made-up things are known. It’s not like there was nothing at all to work with, Republicans have been quite effective at never letting that known stuff die and twisting it to show it in the worst possible light. But they idea that they were going to find an unknown dirt was just ridiculous.

      They are just really, really dumb.

  • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

    FWIW, I think Don Jr. also twitted out a sarcastic tweet yesterday saying something like, “oh, obviously I’m the first person to meet with someone about oppo research. Nothing came from but I had to listen.”
    (very lightly paraphrased)

  • BIJ0U

    It would really suck for Junior if he got indicted, tried, found guilty… and then Daddy didn’t pardon him, like maybe because he ate too much fried chicken one night and it brought on The Big One all of a sudden.

    We may have to, someday soon, confront the question of whether you can be held criminally responsible for stupidity, or if this is like the Twinkie defense, where it is only a ruse to avoid responsibility. I don’t know where to come down on this. I believe in their dishonesty with all of my heart, but I am equally aware that they may indeed be this stupid. It’s a tough one.
