Don Trump Jr. Didn’t Have Secret Service Protection at Time of the Meeting

MeetingThe latest attempt to blame Obama for Trump’s Russia problem is for Team Trump to claim the Secret Service approved the June 9, 2016 meeting with Don Trump, Jr. Present at that event were Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, son-in-law Jared Kushner, and representatives of the Russian government who offered incriminating information about Hillary Clinton to help Trump win the election.

Aside from the very valid observation that it’s not the job of the Secret Service to green-light who the campaign can meet with, is this pesky detail:

The Secret Secret wasn’t guarding Don Trump, Jr. at the time of the meeting.

From P.M. Carpenter:

[The photo above] is a kind of political mugshot I ran across the other day; it’s the most telling portrait I’ve yet seen of the brooding, exhausted, smoldering paranoid who haunts the White House, plagues the world, and offends every conscience of decency.

Here is a spent man, a physical wreck and psychic monstrosity — the shattered embodiment of yearslong corruption. Far from being the man of vigor he promised on the campaign trail, he is broken shell. And far from being the man who would make America great again, he’s only reversing the greatness of his predecessor.

Quinnipiac Finds Donald’s Approval at 36%, Sees Signs of Erosion of Support Among His Base Voters

Reality may be started to permeate the Fox bubble. The new Quinnipiac Poll has Donald’s approval at 36 percent, which is in the range where former Pres. George W.

The news cycles last night and this morning have been dominated by coverage of Donald Trump’s abrupt firing of FBI Director James Comey, the man who is leading the government’s internal investigation into alleged collusion between Donald’s presidential campaign and the government of Russian Pres. Vladimir Putin.

The firing of Comey has rightly caused concern among Democrats and even some Republicans that Donald’s actions are undermining the foundations of the American democratic republic.

This incident that occurred in West Virginia yesterday — in which a reporter was arrested for asking Health and Human Services Sec. Tom Price a question — could potentially be another sign of the unraveling:
