Donald Trump Jr. recently appeared before the House Intelligence Committee. He was grilled on the subject everyone expected – Trump/Russia collusion. However, South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy made it abundantly clear: Jr. did nothing wrong!
From Washington Examiner:
Rep. Trey Gowdy said he was “surprised” that the House Intelligence Committee interview with Donald Trump Jr. on Wednesday spent seven hours focusing on the brief meeting that took place in Trump Tower last summer between Trump campaign members and Russian officials.
For all the time it took, the South Carolina Republican said, the committee gleaned “nothing illegal or improper” in regards to Trump Jr.’s actions related to the meeting which has made him a focus of investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
“I think only a bunch of lawyers could drag out a 20-minute meeting into a seven-hour deposition,” Gowdy told Fox News Wednesday evening.
“We are talking about a 20-minute meeting from which no information was gleaned at Trump Tower, so how you get seven hours out of that for a bunch of guys and gals that aren’t paid by the hour,” he added, “it was quite a sight to see.”
More from ABC News:
The sources told ABC News that the committee’s questions focused on what information was exchanged during the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting in New York City, and the president’s oldest son indicated the short gathering did not produce any information and ended quickly.
Sources said Trump Jr. told investigators he spoke with his father after reports surfaced about his controversial Trump Tower meeting with a Russian lawyer promising dirt on Hillary Clinton. He also told the committee he initially discussed a response with Hope Hicks, a top campaign aide now serving as White House communications director, according to a committee source.
Pressed by Democrats for further details about those conversations, Trump Jr. insisted conversations with his father were privileged, sources in the room said. “They stuck to their position that they were not going to share any conversations that Donald Trump Jr. had with his father about the June 9th meeting,” Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., told CNN Wednesday night.
And there you go.
The left will move on now, right?
Yeah, right! What are the odds?
