Donald Trump Jr.’s willingness to accept incriminating information about Hillary Clinton — even when he was told the material was “part of Russia and its government’s support” for his father — could put him or others in legal jeopardy, though investigators would probably have to do more work to substantiate criminal charges, analysts said.

When Trump Jr. released emails showing how he arranged to meet with a Russian lawyer, he probably showed to the world a key piece of evidence in the investigation of whether his father’s campaign coordinated with Russia to influence the 2016 election.

The emails show that the meeting was initiated when a British-born publicist emailed Trump Jr. claiming a Russian government lawyer had offered to help Trump Jr. obtain “some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and be very useful to your father.”

“This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump,” the publicist wrote.

The White House has been thrust into chaos after days of ever-worsening revelations about a meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a lawyer characterized as representing the Russian government, as the president fumes against his enemies and senior aides circle each other with suspicion, according to top White House officials and outside advisers.

President Trump — who has been hidden from public view since returning last weekend from a divisive international summit — is enraged that the Russia cloud still hangs over his presidency and is exasperated that his oldest son and namesake has become engulfed by it, said people who have spoken with him this week.

The disclosure that Trump Jr. met with a Russian attorney, believing he would receive incriminating information about Hillary Clinton as part of the Kremlin’s effort to boost his father’s candidacy, has set back the administration’s faltering agenda and rattled the senior leadership team.

Even supporters of Trump Jr. who believe he faces no legal repercussions privately acknowledged Tuesday that the story is a public relations disaster — for him as well as for the White House. One outside ally called it a “Category 5 hurricane,” while an outside adviser said a CNN graphic charting connections between the Trump team and Russians resembled the plot of the fictional Netflix series “House of Cards.”

Even Vice President Pence sought to distance himself from the controversy, with his spokesman noting that Trump Jr.’s meeting occurred before Pence joined the ticket.

My guess is that there is a lot of research on pardons going 0on in the White House right about now . .

‘Category 5 hurricane’: White House under siege by Trump Jr.’s Russia revelations

I doubt that you could find one honest family member in the current administration.

I'm getting really tired of the daily "reality show". At first it was amusing but got old real quick......now we're the laughing stock of the world. Wonder if Putin laughs himself to sleep each night.....
It's a good thing I never had any sanity......I would have lost it by now.

Hilly & Billy's adventures in corruption & scandal (including pay-for-play) still make 'em look like choirboys!

Never in the history of the US has there been a more calculated & dedicated effort to destroy the country by attacking POTUS! Those with half a brain despised O'blunder, but there was never this level of flagrant treason exhibited.
