From NBC News:
WASHINGTON — Federal investigators working for Special Counsel Robert Mueller are keenly focused on President Donald Trump’s role in crafting a response to a published article about a meeting between Russians and his son Donald Jr., three sources familiar with the matter told NBC News.
The sources told NBC News that prosecutors want to know what Trump knew about the meeting and whether he sought to conceal its purpose.
The meeting occurred at Trump Tower in June 2016 and was attended by Donald Trump Jr., Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner. The meeting, which was first reported by The New York Times, also involved Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya and former Soviet intelligence officer Rinat Akhmetshin.
Spoiler alert: YES, Trump sought to conceal the purpose of Don Jr’s infamous meeting in Trump Tower. Trump was reported to have personally dictated the very misleading original statement about the meeting released by his son.
It is great to know that this is Mueller’s prime focus right now. Charging Trump with Obstruction of Justice in this incident seems like a slam dunk. And hopefully it will be the fastest way to get Trump out before he can pardon his many co-conspirators.
Godspeed, Robert Mueller.
