Donald, Jr. and The Real Issue

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JULY 14, 2017

         IT’S EASY TO MAKE JUDGMENTS IN RETROSPECT. DID DONALD TRUMP, JR. KNOW HE WAS MEETING WITH A RUSSIAN AGENT DURING LAST YEAR’S CAMPAIGN? I DOUBT IT. SHOULD HE? PROBABLY, IF HE HAD DONE A FULL BACKGROUND CHECK, BUT JUNIOR WAS NEW TO POLITICS AND, THUS, INEXPERIENCED IN SUCH MATTERS.

         OPPONENTS OF THE PRESIDENT ARE USING THIS MEETING TO LABEL IT TREASON, WHICH IS MORE THAN A STRETCH. NO INFORMATION ABOUT HILLARY CLINTON WAS DISCLOSED AS HAD BEEN ADVERTISED AS THE PURPOSE OF THE MEETING.

         MEANWHILE, CLINTON HAS NEVER BEEN HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THAT URANIUM DEAL WITH THE RUSSIANS THAT RESULTED IN A CONTRIBUTION OF MORE THAN $2 MILLION TO THE CLINTON FOUNDATION, NOR HAS SHE BEEN HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE DESTRUCTION OF THOUSANDS OF EMAILS THAT WERE UNDER SUBPOENA. THOSE ARE NOT MISDEEDS IN RETROSPECT. THEY ARE PROVABLE ACTS.

         KEEP IN MIND THE LEFT, WHICH INCLUDES MOST OF THE MEDIA, THE ESTABLISHMENT, WHICH INCLUDES DEMOCRATS AND TOO MANY REPUBLICANS, HATE PRESIDENT TRUMP AND HIS AGENDA FOR REFORMING THE COURTS, THE TAX CODE, BIG GOVERNMENT AND SPENDING. THAT IS THE REAL ISSUE BEHIND ALL OF THE NOISE. I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
