The Crown prosecutor of Russia met with his father Aras 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.

Imagine how “disappointed” they’d be, to learn that they’d have to give up “something” in the process, of getting said-Dirt from those Russian operators. (Jared and Paul had to explain it to them in the post-meeting.)
In the end, they got want they wanted — “witch” exceeded their pettiest of petty-crimes dreams …
