Now that Donald Trump Jr has released e-mail chains that carry heavy elements of potential treason under U.S law. On Monday, Trump Jr reportedly released a number of e-mails from 2016 dating back to when meetings with Russian lawyer(s) first occurred.
We’d like to make a note that reporters from The New York Times have confirmed that these e-mails were first in their hands despite Trump Jr’s own claim. They were preparing to publish, but, he published them first to get ahead of the story.
The e-mail chain started with Trump Jr, and, eventually made its way to a Russian lawyer; Jared Kushner, and even Paul Manafort. The e-mail discusses Trump Jr in detail being aware of Russia’s collusion with the Trump campaign, so much so, that Trump Jr himself admits “He’d like that” if Russia were to provide damning information on Hillary Clinton.
It is the first time the world has gotten direct confirmation of any form of collusion with Russia from the Trump campaign itself. Meanwhile, Senators across the spectrum are already crying treason. More interesting, perhaps, is the fact that someone identified as “The Crown Prosecutor of Russia” appears to have been involved in the assisting of the Trump campaign to win the 2016 Presidential election in the United States.

Hope all is well
Emin asked that I schedule a meeting with you and The Russian government attorney who is flying over from Moscow for this Thursday.
I believe you are aware of the meeting – and so wondered if 3pm or later on Thursday works for you?
I assume it would be at your office.
The New York Times, which had the e-mails first, first published news of the meeting about a week or so ago. Initially, the rumors of the meeting and the news was abruptly denied. The New York Times notes in its own report that they did indeed contact Donald Trump Jr for comment, but instead of commenting, he released the images of the e-mails himself on Twitter to “cover his tracks”.
As pointed out by The New York Times, the individual identified as the “Crown Prosecutor” of Russia is actually the top official in Russia otherwise known in Russian terms as the Prosecuting General of Russia. The first term is actually a term used by the United Kingdom to describe its own prosecution service.
