[Ed. – In deciding for yourself bear in mind that multiple accounts from people in the meeting are now available.]
If there is an Exhibit A in the case that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to fix the presidential election, it is the June 9, 2016, meeting in Trump Tower between three top campaign officials — Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner — and a group of Russians who promised dirt on Hillary Clinton.
And if there is a key document about the meeting — an Exhibit A of Exhibit A — it is the email from British music promoter Rob Goldstone to Trump Jr. proposing the get-together. Read in light of the accusations leveled against President Trump and his campaign after the election, the email almost screams: WE WANT TO COLLUDE WITH YOU.
But did it really? Newly-released testimony by several participants in the Trump Tower meeting suggests the answer could well be no.
In the email, Goldstone told Trump Jr. that a powerful Russian had “offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father.”\
