Idiot Donald Trump Jr. Just Released Russian Email Chain — He’s Toast (IMAGES)

Donald Trump Jr. may have been born with a silver spoon in his mouth, but he seems to be lacking the “superior genes” his father claims as a birthright. On Tuesday morning, while in the middle of being a focus of the scandal that will rock his father’s administration, he tweeted the email chain that very literally implicates him in colluding with the Russians. Yes, it’s that bad.

The chain was from June 6, 2016, and it was about setting up the meeting between Trump Jr, Paul Manafort (Trump’s campaign manager at the time) and Jared Kushner.

The smoking gun came in this one:

Twitter users were stunned, especially over this part, which explicitly states that Trump Jr. attended the meeting with the intention of getting dirt on Clinton, which he said he would “love.”

The documents “would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father,” read the email, written by a trusted intermediary, who added, “This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.”

If the future president’s elder son was surprised or disturbed by the provenance of the promised material — or the notion that it was part of an ongoing effort by the Russian government to aid his father’s campaign — he gave no indication.

He replied within minutes: “If it’s what you say I love it especially later in the summer.”

The only explanation for this apparent suicide tactic is to get out ahead of a New York Times story. They already had the emails.

Trump Senior has been trying to distance himself from his son since the story broke on Monday, but as the New York Times notes, the meeting took place just three floors below his office. Even if Trump argues that Jr. and Kushner weren’t officially part of his campaign, he can’t make that claim about Manafort.

This is serious stuff. Trump Jr. asked to see the information (solicitation), and such information would be considered to be a “thing of value.” It’s both illegal to solicit and it’s illegal for a campaign to accept a things of value from foreign entity, and it’s hard to dispute that such “dirt” on an opponent wouldn’t be a thing of value.

A foreign national shall not, directly or indirectly, make a contribution or a donation of money or other thing of value, or expressly or impliedly promise to make a contribution or a donation, in connection with any Federal, State, or local election.

This won’t be the final shoe to drop, though. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-California) says that the Congressional intel committee has a lot more damaging information than the public knows. Thankfully, though, the Trump family keeps inching so much closer to hanging themselves.
