Like many people I do not have time to watch TV. But I do try to read sometimes. I did not hear Donald Jr. say “no, I did not tell my dad about that meeting.” I heard him say “why would I have?” and so forth. I do not understand why some news organizations, mainstream or not, are so eager to jump to conclusions not actually based on careful sifting of evidence.
Also, Mike Pence’s spokesman, speaking today, did not deny that the Vice President may have met with Russians.
Finally, I do not need any more smoking guns. It’s a political process, not a strictly legal process. The president, if not an agent of a foreign adversary, is giving us a pretty good imitation of somebody who’s been turned. Do we really need more than that–assuming we are putting country first, that is.
