Donald Trump Junior will testify before the
Senate Judiciary Committee next month
by Nathan'ette Burdine: August 30, 2017

Welp, Donald Trump Junior has decided that it’s high time for him to haul tail it up to Capitol Hill and have that sit down with the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Don Junior will be discussing, privately, with the Senate Judiciary Committee what he does and doesn’t know about his father, President Donald Trump Senior, possibly getting assistance from Russian President Vladimir Putin in the 2016 Presidential Election.

The younger Trump will also tell the committee about the June 2016 meeting that he, his brother-in-law Jared Kushner, and former Campaign Manager Paul Manafort had with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.

Politico was the first to report about the upcoming meeting that Don Junior will have with the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Manafort and Kushner have testified before a congressional committee. Don Junior was going to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee last month, but decided not to.

And as folks know, last month was also the time when Don Junior went to Twitter to release the emails verifying his meeting with Veselnitskaya about getting dirt on the 2016 Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton.

Last month is also the time when the FBI searched Manafort’s home. So yeah, July was quite a busy month for ol’ Junior and the rest of the Trump crew.

The end of this month, however, has not been any better. The Washington Post reported that Donald Trump’s lawyer and longtime associate, Michael Cohen, communicated with Vladimir Putin’s longtime spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, in order to get the ball rolling on a real estate project in Moscow.

The Washington Post quoted Cohen as saying to Peskov, “Over the past few months I have been working with a company based in Russia regarding the development of a Trump Tower-Moscow project in Moscow City. Without getting into lengthy specifics, the communication between our two sides has stalled. As this project is too important, I am hereby requesting your assistance.”

According to The Washington Post, Cohen emailed this statement to Peskov during the 2016 Presidential race.

And as folks remember, Trump consistently said that he hasn’t had anything to do with Russia.

This email from his lawyer to Putin’s spokesman, on the other hand, suggest otherwise.

Now, I must say that Trump and Cohen are denying any wrongdoing. The only problem with all of this is that all of these emails are leading to the red brick road, Moscow.

If you don’t believe me, just take a gander at this statement from Michael Cohen’s longtime friend and Donald Trump associate, Felix Sater.

The Washington Post quoted Sater as saying to Cohen in the email, “Our boy can become president of the USA and we can engineer it. I will get all of Putins team to buy in on this.”

And of course, everybody is denying any wrongdoing. In fact, according to ABC News, Trump has consistently denied knowing Sater.

Trump Senior has even gone as far as to say, “If he (Sater) were sitting in the room right now, I really wouldn’t know what he looked like.”

According to ABC News, Trump’s comment about Sater was made during a deposition related to real estate development that Sater and Trump were associated with in Florida.

Despite all of the denials of collusions with the Russians, the evidence is in the pudding.

And this pudding is saying that due to this situation not looking so good for Trump and his crew, Don Junior has decided to do the right thing and high tail himself up there to Capitol Hill to tell all that he knows before it’s too late.
