Trump Jr emails, made public by Trump Jr himself, clearly show a willingness to work with Russia. He agreed to work with Russia with the goal of obtaining allegedly incriminating information about Hillary. And this was later followed through with action, by attending the notorious Trump Tower meeting with Russians, in summer of 2016.
In his emails, Trump Jr showed intent to conspire, agreement to conspire, followed by action taken with the objective in mind, by attending the Trump Tower meeting with a Russian lawyer and others. The Russian lawyer reportedly came together with a former Soviet counterintelligence officer, who is currently a Russian-American lobbyist.
Apart from a formal written agreement between Trump and Putin, it couldn’t be more clear.
In July of 2017, the Associate Dean of Cornell Law School, Jens David Ohlin stated regarding the Trump Jr email revelations: “It’s a shocking admission of a criminal conspiracy.” Others at the time appear to have agreed. [a]
According to Trump AG Barr’s letter: “In assessing potential conspiracy charges, the Special Counsel also considered whether members of the Trump campaign “coordinated” with Russian election interference activities. The Special Counsel defined “coordination” as an “agreement – tacit or express – between the Trump Campaign and the Russian government on election interference.”
So, what gives? What more could be needed? Is Trump Jr a Czech national and not a US citizen? Trump Jr’s mother is Czech, he is reportedly fluent in Czech, and passed his summers there. The Czech Republic allows dual citizenship, so it appears unlikely that he would not have US citizenship. His Czech grandmother is, rather surprisingly, a great fan of Trump Sr. [b] Was Trump Jr not affilated with the Trump campaign?
Is Barr lying?
The Barr letter states:
“The report further explains that a primary consideration for the Special Counsel’s investigation was whether any Americans – including individuals associated with the Trump campaign — joined the Russian conspiracies to influence the election, which would be a federal crime. The Special Counsel’s investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.” (p. 2)
In footnote 1 it says: “In assessing potential conspiracy charges, the Special Counsel also considered whether members of the Trump campaign “coordinated” with Russian election interference activities. The Special Counsel defined “coordination” as an “agreement – tacit or express – between the Trump Campaign and the Russian government on election interference.” (p. 2)
“But as noted above, the Special Counsel did not find that the Trump campaign, or anyone associated with it, conspired or coordinated with the Russian government on these efforts, despite multiple offers from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign“. (p. 2) Trump Jr appears to have been associated with Trump Sr’s campaign, so this doesn’t seem to be the loophole used. There is no mention of “American” here, either.
It is worth noting that City Counsel members have been accused of colluding or conspiring together for much less – simply because they spoke together during a break.
While we feared a great deal of coverup, as the truth may be too ugly to appear in the public eye, if you consider research done by the late Wayne Barrett, and others, we did expect some narrowly written findings of guilt. Instead, there appears to be a bigger coverup than BCCI and Iran Contra, brought to us by many of the same people: https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2017/01/21/trumps-greatest-mentor-roy-cohn-was-attorney-for-nyc-mob-families-and-red-baiting-aide-to-joe-mccarthy-wayne-barrett-rip-january-19-20
On Jun 3, 2016, Rob Goldstone wrote to Trump, Jr.:
“The Crown prosecutor of Russia met with his father Aras [Agalarov] this morning and in their meeting 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. This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump – helped along by Aras and Emin [Agalarov]. What do you think is the best way to handle this information and would you be able to speak to Emin about it directly? I can also send this info to your father via Rhona, but it is ultra sensitive so wanted to send to you first. Best Rob Goldstone”
On Jun 3, 2016, Donald Trump Jr. wrote back:
“Thanks Rob I appreciate that. I am on the road at the moment but perhaps I just speak to Emin first. Seems we have some time and if it’s what you say I love it especially later in the summer. Could we do a call first thing next week when I am back? Best, Don” (Emphasis our own.)
Remember President Trump July 2016?

“Every American should be alarmed by Russia’s attacks on our nation. There is no national security interest more vital to the United States of America than the ability to hold free and fair elections without foreign interference. That is why Congress must set partisanship aside, follow the facts, and work together to devise comprehensive solutions to deter, defend against, and, when necessary, respond to foreign cyberattacks…. “It should not surprise us that Vladimir Putin would think he could launch increasingly severe cyberattacks against our nation when he has paid little price for invading Ukraine, annexing Crimea,…” (US Senator McCain)

The lobbyist, Rinat Akhmetshin, on July 14 confirmed to the Associated Press that he had been at the meeting. He told the news agency he had once served in a Soviet military unit that was part of counterintelligence but that he was never formally trained as a spy. . . ” Read the rest here: https://www.rferl.org/a/us-russia-former-soviet-agent-lobbyist-at-trump-jr-meeting/28616421.html
Is this the loophole? They conspired with dual nationals?
“In October, our intelligence agencies concluded unanimously that ‘the Russian Government directed … compromises of e-mails from U.S. persons and institutions, including from U.S. political organizations.’ They also assessed that ‘disclosures of alleged hacked e-mails … [were] consistent with the methods and motivations of Russian-directed efforts,’ and that ‘these thefts and disclosures [were] intended to interfere with the U.S. election process.’/ “Since then, our intelligence community has released additional information concerning these Russian activities, including a Joint Analysis Report that provided technical details regarding the tools and infrastructure used by the Russian civilian and military intelligence services to attack the United States./ “Every American should be alarmed by Russia’s attacks on our nation. There is no national security interest more vital to the United States of America than the ability to hold free and fair elections without foreign interference. That is why Congress must set partisanship aside, follow the facts, and work together to devise comprehensive solutions to deter, defend against, and, when necessary, respond to foreign cyberattacks./ “As we do, we must recognize that the recent Russian attacks are one part of a much bigger cyber problem. Russian cyberattacks have targeted the White House, the Joint Staff, the State Department, and our critical infrastructure. Chinese cyberattacks have reportedly targeted NASA, the Departments of State and Commerce, congressional offices, military labs, the Naval War College, and U.S. businesses, including major defense contractors….. “What seems clear is that our adversaries have reached a common conclusion: that the reward for attacking America in cyberspace outweighs the risk…. “It should not surprise us that Vladimir Putin would think he could launch increasingly severe cyberattacks against our nation when he has paid little price for invading Ukraine, annexing Crimea, subverting democratic values and institutions across Europe, and of course, helping Bashar Assad slaughter civilians in Syria for more than a year with impunity…. Put simply, we cannot achieve cyber deterrence without restoring the credibility of U.S. deterrence more broadly. “To do so, we must first have a policy, which means finally resolving the long list of basic cyber questions that we as a nation have yet to answer. What constitutes an act of war or aggression in cyberspace that would merit a military response, be it by cyber or other means? What is our theory of cyber deterrence, and what is our strategy to implement it? Is our government organized appropriately to handle this threat, or are we so stove-piped that we cannot deal with it effectively? Who is accountable for this problem, and do they have sufficient authorities to deliver results? Are we in the Congress just as stove-piped on cyber as the executive branch, such that our oversight actually reinforces problems rather than helping to resolve them? Do we need to change how we are organized?” (US Senator McCain)
