So now, if we believe Trump Jr.’s statement, he remembered the meeting but failed to disclose it under penalty of perjury because he thought it was irrelevant.
However the e-mails that have now been revealed indicate,without doubt,that the purpose of the meeting was to obtain damaging information on Hillary. Trump Jr. said , seventeen minutes after the initial e-mail that:
“Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets,”
“We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.”
In fact Trump Tower was financed by Russian money. While in Moscow for the Miss Universe Pageant Donald Trump Sr. signed and agreement with a Russian investor, Agalarov, to build a Trump Tower in the heart of Moscow.
