Donald Trump Jr. beat the #FakeNews media to the punch and released the ENTIRE email chain of his conversation with Rob Goldstone on a meeting with a Russian lawyer.
Donald Trump Jr. released this statement on Tuesday morning.
Here is his statement:
“To everyone, in order to be totally transparent, I am releasing the entire email chain of my emails with Rob Goldstone about the meeting on June 9, 2016. The first email on June 3, 2016 was from Rob, who was relating a request from Emin, a person I knew from the 2013 Ms. Universe Pageant near Moscow. Emin and his father have a very highly respected company in Moscow…. The woman as she has said publicly, was not a government official. And, as we have said, she had no information to provide and wanted to talk about adoption policy and the Magnitsky Act. To put this in context, this occurred before the current Russian fever was in vogue. As Rob Goldstone said just today in the press, the entire meeting was “the most inane nonsense I ever heard. And I was actually agitated by it.”
Then the president’s son released the entire emeail chain with Rob Goldstone who arranged the meeting on confidential Clinton information.
The email chain shows the full discussion with Rob Goldstone to set up a meeting with a Russian lawyer on June 9, 2016.
Nothing came from the meeting.
The lawyer does not work for the Russian government.
The meeting lasted 20 minutes.
The entire story is another big nothingburger.
And Donald Trump Jr. beat the media to the punch – so they can’t publish any more screaming headlines on this 20 minute meeting.
Don JR beats the fake news to the punch and releases the entire email chain. Nothing here is even borderline. This is just basic campaigning https://t.co/reLT8Y5nqq

Donald Trump Jr. later added this swipe at the #fakenews media:
Media & Dems are extremely invested in the Russia story. If this nonsense meeting is all they have after a yr, I understand the desperation!
