Are liberals and the media making a mountain out of a molehill?

The “Trump Jr. – Russian lawyer” meeting keeps developing like a soap opera, “As The Story Churns,” forcing the president’s eldest son regroup each time.

The New York Times dropped the third shoe with a report that Donald Trump Jr. was informed in an email from a third-party who requested the meeting that the lawyer with whom he was supposed to meet — Natalia Veselnitskaya — was indeed associated with the Kremlin and was not a mere private attorney.

The Times also reported that, according to the email, sent by British publicist Robert Goldstone, the information she had to offer to the Trump campaign and critical to Hillary Clinton and came from the Russian government in a desire to to help Trump.

In Trump Jr’s defense, Veselnitskaya had no information to offer the campaign. It was merely a ruse to prompt the meeting between the two to discuss the possibility of reintroduction of a U.S. program to adopt Russian children.

But Clinton dirt — allegedly coming from the Kremlin — was still the carrot being waved in front of Trump’s eldest son.

The Times reported:

Mr. Goldstone’s message, as described to The New York Times by the three people, indicates that the Russian government was the source of the potentially damaging information. It does not elaborate on the wider effort by Moscow to help the Trump campaign.

There is no evidence to suggest that the promised damaging information was related to Russian government computer hacking that led to the release of thousands of Democratic National Committee emails. The meeting took place less than a week before it was widely reported that Russian hackers had infiltrated the committee’s servers.

 

The latter paragraph is important given that to date, the hacking of email accounts belonging to the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta are the acts alleged to have been associated to the Russian government.

It’s also important to observe that what transpired between Veselnitskaya and Trump Jr. could not arguably be construed as “collusion,” especially given that the lawyer came empty-handed — she had no Clinton dirt.

This was noted by White House deputy spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders even before The Times broke its latest “bombshell,” and reiterated by Trump counsel Alan S. Futerfas, who released this statement:

Social media, as expected, wasn’t kind to Trump Jr.

And Gardner hit the bull’s-eye dead center on that one.

Lawyer and The Federalist contributor Gabriel Malor turned the whole thing around — maybe it was a setup, but not of Clinton.

MSNBC’s Joy Reid said this latest Trump Jr. installment couldn’t be spun by supporters on the right — one disagreed.

And sure enough, Hannity had plenty to say about the development, and blasted the media for “foaming at the mouth” over the story.
