    If you're confused that's on you. Come with some proof of crime or admit you're wildly speculating

    Actually, no.
    The NYT asked junior about confirming information because they were about to report the story; he asked for a courtesy pause to check some things, and used that pause to dump the email chain himself.

    What you are describing is two days after the story broke. NYT themselves say the learned of the meeting from Kushner's SF86.

    He was in TT that day and the meeting everybody forgot included his senior staff at a time when they were "running a budget campaign" and didn't have a lot of junior staffers available.

    It's ridiculous how stupid they think the average person is. Never mind, I forgot I was thinking about Trump supporters.

    Well Hillary was famous for it. It's a common tactic in politics and isn't illegal

    It's possible he wasn't informed, but it strains credulity to think he wasn't.

    I would bet he knew about the meeting before it happened, knew what was expected from it, and knew what was obtained.
    I'm curious about the dirt dossier that the Russians present say they left for perusal.

    They found out about SOME of the people at the meeting, not the ones they lied about not being there.

    Why haven't we heard of what was inside the dossier yet? If they left it behind what happened to it? I'm guessing it was information already known to the Trump administration.

    It's funny.
    I remember meeting Russian people, they have funny accents. I work with a couple.
    Either junior and Manafort and Kushner met with so many Russians they couldn't possibly recall this meeting about adoptions from all the accents they were hearing from during the campaign...
    Or they're lying their asses off about it.

    Thus far it's only alleged by a participant.

    All of this is a credit to dogged journalism BTW.
    REAL JOURNALISM.

    That's why "fake news" is such an important word. Everything can be discredited now.

    They're gonna find out that when it comes to real reporting, we all turn on the cable networks or open the paper and depend on journalists doing journalism.
    They can bleat "fake news" like the idiotic sheep they are.

    I don't think we know if Kushner listed Rinat or the translator or not. I haven't seen anyone in the media claim that they were not on his SF86, but I also haven't read every single article.

    No one is even calling this fake news. Because its not.

    The stuff people did call fake news...turned out to be fake news. You are still so butthurt about that.

    Again, Kushner hasn't lied about the meeting. He filed it on his SF86.
