New White House Leak to WaPo Over Trump Jr.-Russian Meeting is Backhanded Slap to the Face of Gen. Kelly

HAHAHAHAHA — Scaramucci is gone and the General is in, so you thought the leaks would end.

WRONG.

This might be one of the worst leaks yet. Or, you might want to simply call it ‘fake news.’ Either way, General Kelly will have his hands full at the Trump White House, which appears to be populated with the scummiest people on the face of the planet — real self-fellatiors.

According to the Washington Post, an unnamed source inside the White said Trump directed Trump Jr. media response, addressing his meeting with Russians.

Flying home from Germany on July 8 aboard Air Force One, Trump personally dictated a statement in which Trump Jr. said that he and the Russian lawyer had “primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children” when they met in June 2016, according to multiple people with knowledge of the deliberations. The statement, issued to the New York Times as it prepared an article, emphasized that the subject of the meeting was “not a campaign issue at the time.”
 
The claims were later shown to be misleading.
 
Over the next three days, multiple accounts of the meeting were provided to the news media as public pressure mounted, with Trump Jr. ultimately acknowledging that he had accepted the meeting after receiving an email promising damaging information about Hillary Clinton as part of a Russian government effort to help his father’s campaign.
 
The extent of the president’s personal intervention in his son’s response, the details of which have not previously been reported, adds to a series of actions that Trump has taken that some advisers fear could place him and some members of his inner circle in legal jeopardy.
 
As special counsel Robert S. Mueller III looks into potential obstruction of justice as part of his broader investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election, these advisers worry that the president’s direct involvement leaves him needlessly vulnerable to allegations of a coverup.
 
“This was .?.?. unnecessary,” said one of the president’s advisers, who like most other people interviewed for this article spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive internal deliberations. “Now someone can claim he’s the one who attempted to mislead. Somebody can argue the president is saying he doesn’t want you to say the whole truth.”

The rat continues…

“He refuses to sit still,” the presidential adviser said. “He doesn’t think he’s in any legal jeopardy, so he really views this as a political problem he is going to solve by himself.”

 
WaPo offers us the play by play details, as if a fly on the wall was reporting directly from the scene.
 

Air Force One took off from Germany shortly after 6 p.m. — about noon in Washington. In a forward cabin, Trump was busy working on his son’s statement, according to people with knowledge of events. The president dictated the statement to Hicks, who served as a go-between with Trump Jr., who was not on the plane, sharing edits between the two men, according to people with knowledge of the discussions.
 
In the early afternoon, Eastern time, Trump Jr.’s team put out the statement to the Times. It was four sentences long, describing the encounter as a “short, introductory meeting.”
 
“We primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children that was active and popular with American families years ago and was since ended by the Russian government, but it was not a campaign issue at the time and there was no follow up,” the statement read.
 
Trump Jr. went on to say: “I was asked to attend the meeting by an acquaintance, but was not told the name of the person I would be meeting with beforehand.”
 
Over the next hour, word spread through emails and calls to other Trump family advisers and lawyers about the statement that Trump Jr. had sent to the Times.

 
There you have it folks. The President of the United States dictated a statement for his son, which was then sent to the NY Times. When do the concurrent prison sentences begin?
 
Whoever leaked this information to the Post, in light of recent events, neither respects or fears General Kelly. Given that it was Scaramucci’s job to find the rat’s in the White House, who exactly will be honored with the task to do that job now?
