Latest Time Cover On Donald Trump Jr.: ‘Red handed’ | Morning Joe | MSNBC


>>PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH HIS SON PICTURING A PURPORTED OFFER FROM THE RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT TO DISCUSS INFORMATION THAT COULD HELP THEM WIN THE 2016 ELECTION. THE SCRUTINY COMES — CONTINUES FOR THE TRUMP TOWER MEETING IN WHICH DONALD TRUMP JUNIOR GATHERED TOP CAMPAIGN AIDS JARED KUSHNER AND PAUL MANAFORT AFTER BEING PROMISED INFORMATION THAT WOULD INCRIMINATE HILLARY CLINTON. ASKED IF HE WISHES HIS SON HAD NOT TAKEN THE MEETING THE PRESIDENT SAID I THINK MANY PEOPLE WOULD HAVE HELD THAT MEETING. WHETHER HE WISHED HE KNEW, THE PRESIDENT SAID IT WAS A WILD TIME, AND WE WOULD MEET WITH MANY PEOPLE. IT WAS A 20-MINUTE MEETING, FROM WHAT I’M HEARING. MANY PEOPLE AND MANY POLITICAL PROS SAID EVERYBODY WOULD DO THAT. MANY PEOPLE, AND MANY POLITICAL PROS SAID EVERYBODY WOULD DO THAT IF YOU GOT A CALL AND SAID LISTEN, I HAVE INFORMATION ON HILLARY CLINTON OR THE DNC OR WHATEVER IT WAS, THEY SAID, MOST PEOPLE ARE GOING TO MAKE THAT MEETING, I THINK. THE PRESIDENT SAID HE DIDN’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE MEETING UNTIL A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO. THIS WEEK’S NEW ISSUE OF “TIME” IS ENTITLED DONALD TRUMP JUNIOR RED HANDED. THE RUSSIA SANDAL HITS HOME. WE ARE JOINED BY MICHAEL SHARER AND JEREMY BASH. I’M JUST — I ACTUALLY JUST WANT TO BACK UP A LITTLE BIT TO I GUESS THE CLAIM THAT JARED KUSHNER HAD NO IDEA WHAT THE MEETING WAS ABOUT BECAUSE HE DIDN’T READ FURTHER DOUBT ON THE E-MAILE-MAIL. IS IT POSSIBLE WHEN THE SUBJECT LINE SAID WHAT IT WAS ABOUT?>>WHO KNOWS WHAT WAS ON HIS MIND, BUT THAT’S SOMETHING INVESTIGATORS WILL ASK HIM. THEY’LL SHOW HIM THE E-MAIL AND SAID DO YOU RECALL THIS? DID YOU SEE THIS? WHY DID YOU GO TO THIS MEETING? IT’S STRANGE THAT HE DIDN’T KNOW. THIS IS A MEETING SET UP BY HIS BROTHER-IN-LAW WITH THE CAMPAIGN NARM ENCREDULITY EXPRESSING SUPPORT? I WILL GO ONLY A LAMB AND SAY HE KNEW.>>AS WE SAID YESTERDAY.>>VERY COMFORTABLE WITH THAT.>>WE HAD A GUEST THAT POINTED OUT, THERE WAS A PHONE CALL ALSO, A FOLLOW-UP PHONE NUMBER REPORTED MEETING TOOK PLACE. AND THIS CAMPAIGN BROUGHT TOGETHER THE MOST IMPORTANT PEOPLE IN THE ROOM AND DON JR. LIED A COUPLE DAYS AGO SAYING FEBRUARY E NOBODY KNEW WHAT THE MEETING WAS ABOUT. HE FORWARDED THE E-MAIL.>>IN JULY OF THAT YEAR, DONE JR. WAS ON CNN SAYING IT WAS RIDICULOUS AND A LIE THAT RUSSIA WAS HELPING THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN. EVEN THOUGH HE HAD ALREADY TAKEN THE MEETING AT THAT POINT. I THINK FOR JARED KUSHNER, THE MORE PERTINENT QUESTION MAY BE WHEN DID HE REMEMBER THIS MEETING WITH REGARDS TO HIS SECURITY CLEARANCE APPLICATION? THE STORY THAT HIS LAWYER HAS TOLD IS THAT HE IN HASTE SUBMITTED HIS SECURITY CLEARANCE INITIALLY LEFT OFF MOST IF NOT ALL OF HIS CONTACTS WHEN HE REALIZED HE MADE THAT MISTAKE, HE CORRECTED IT. THERE IS A LEVEL OF INTENT THAT MATTERS THERE. IF IT’S –>>HE CORRECTED IT BEFORE.>>HE CORRECTED IT BEFORE THIS STORY CAME OUT.>>AND HOW MANY TIMES HAS HE REVISED HIS SECURITY?>>WE DON’T KNOW. I THINK THE STATEMENT FROM HIS ATTORNEY SUGGESTS IT HAS BEEN MORE THAN ONCE.>>RIGHT.>>AND IT SEEMS TO ME AT LEAST FROM THE REPORTING IT SEEMS TO ME HE’S DONE IT IN A WAY. HE REMEMBERED THE AMBASSADOR AND THEN THE BANKER AND NOW IT SEEMS THAT –>>AND WHAT HIS PEOPLE HAVE SAID IS THAT UNTIL THIS E-MAIL WAS RESURFACED MORE RECENTLY, HE HAD FORGOTTEN ENTIRELY ABOUT THIS MEETING.>>THAT THE MEETING HAD JUST SLIPPED HIS MIND.>>UH-HUH, GOOD LUCK TELLING THAT TO BOB MUELLER, WITH SOMEBODY THAT SAYS WE’RE COMING AND WE’RE GOING TO HELP YOU WHEN THE ELECTION.>>BANKER, AMBASSADOR, A LAWYER, A LOT OF PEOPLE IN RUSSIA.>>TALK ABOUT WHAT YOUR COVER STORY SAYS ABOUT DONE JR. AND HIS PLACE I PLACEMENT IN ALL THIS NOW.>>I THINK THE MOST INTERESTING PART OF THIS IS THAT TRUMP HAS ALWAYS TREATED FAMILY DIFFERENTLY. IN THIS WHITE HOUSE, FAMILY CONTINUES TO BE TREATED DIFFERENTLY. YOU SAW THE BREAKDOWN THAT HAPPENED THIS WEEK BETWEEN THE LEGAL TEAM, WHICH WAS SUPPOSED TO BE THE THING THAT BROUGHT SOME PROFESSIONALISM TO THE WAY THE PRESIDENT WAS RESPONDING TO THIS CRISIS. AND TRUMP. AND THE FAMILY MEMBERS AROUND HIM. I THINK IT’S BEEN PROVEN AGAIN THAT WHEN IT COMES TO FAMILY, THE IDEA THAT YOU CAN HAVE A STRUCTURE AROUND THE PRESIDENT THAT FUNCTIONS LIKE A CONVENTIONAL WHOURKS LIKE A NORMAL STRUCTURE, THAT FUNCTIONS LIKE A NORMAL LEGAL RESPONSE OPERATION SORT OF BREAKS DOWN. BECAUSE THE PRESIDENT WILL ALWAYS CHOOSE TO AND MAYBE NOT WILL, ALWAYS HAS CONSISTENTLY CHOSEN TO GO ON FULL OFFENSE TO DENY AS MUCH AS HE CAN AND THAT’S THE WAY HE HANDLES THESE THINGS.>>I’M JUST LOOKING AT BACKING UP ON THIS MEETING AND LOOKING AT THE INITIAL STATEMENT THAT CAME OUT THAT WAS CRAFTED COLLECTIVELY APPARENTLY, THAT THIS MEETING WAS ABOUT SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. AND THEN THAT UNRAVELLED AND TURNS OUT TO BE WHAT SOME MIGHT CALL A LIE.>>ON TO WHAT.>>WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO COMPEL THE PRESIDENT, HIS ADVISERS, TO REALLY PROVIDE SOME ANSWERS ON CONNECTIONS WITH RUSSIA? WHAT MORE DOES ONE NEED TO SEE HAPPEN TO PROMPT REPUBLICANS MAYBE TO ASK FOR A SUBPOENA?>>WELL, I THINK WHAT WE WANT TO SEE IS WHETHER OR NOT MANAFORT FOR FLYNN WHO ARE FOUGHT BLOOD TO YOUR POINT AND NOT FAMILY ACTUALLY TURN AND WHETHER OR NOT THEY TALK TO SOME LESSER CHARGE OR FAILURE TO DISCLOSE CHARGE. IN FLYNN’S CASE, HE ACTUALLY IS ACCUSED OF LYING TO THE FBI ON JANUARY 24th IN HIS INTERVIEW, MANAFORT HAS OTHER ISSUES, WHETHER THEY TURN AND TESTIFY AGAINST THE FAMILY. THEY’VE NEVER LIKED THE FAMILY. IN SOME WAY THE FAMILY TOOK CONTROL OF THE CAMPAIGN AND PUSHED OTHERS OUT. SO THERE HAVE BEEN THESE RIVALRIES. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS PART, IT WAS A PART OF A ISSUE AND RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT EFFORT TO SUPPORT YOUR FATHER’S CAMPAIGN, WHAT WERE THE OTHER PARTS? AND CLEARLY, IF YOU ARE KUSHNER OR MANAT FORT OR DONE JR., THEY DIDN’T SEEM TO BE SURPRISED, THERE WERE ACTS OF INFLUENCE, THERE WAS CYBER HACKING, POTENTIALLY THESE BOTs YOU DESCRIBED EARLIER AND THESE EFFORTS TO SUPPORT DONALD TRUMP DIRECTLY BY THE RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT.>>I THINK ANOTHER IMPORTANT WORD THE PRESIDENT KEPT CALLING HIS SON TRANSPARENT, HE KEPT PRAISING DONE JR. FOR BEING TRANCE PARENT. WHAT THIS EPISODE PROVED THEY ARE NOT BEING TRANSPARENT. THEY KNEW THE E-MAILS EXISTED. THEY KNEW THEY WERE OMITTING INFORMATION. THE ONLY REASON THEY WOULD DO THAT RATIONALLY IS THEY THOUGHT THE E-MAIL WOULD NEVER COME OUT OR AT SUCH A FUTURE DATE THAT PEOPLE WOULD HAVE FORGOTTEN ABOUT THIS AND IT WOULDN’T MATTER ANYMORE. THEY CHOSE WHEN THE QUESTION WAS ASKED NOT TO GIVE THE FULL INFORMATION UNTIL THEY WERE FORCED LATER.>>IT FEELS LIKE IT’S UNRAVELING. IT FEELS LIKE THINGS ARE GETTING HOT, HOTTER AND THEY’RE DIGGING THEMSELVES DEEPER.>>WELL, THIS, I THINK THE REASON WHY THIS STORY WAS SO SIGNIFICANT IS THIS WAS THE FIRST DIRECT LINK BETWEEN THE SENIOR LEVELS OF THE CAMPAIGN AND A RUSSIAN EFFORTS TO MEDDLE IN THE ELECTIONS. WE FEW FEW ABOUT THE RUSSIAN ELECTION TO MEDDLE. WE HAD NOT SEEN THAT UNTIL THE CAMPAIGN.>>AND THE SPECIFIC LANGUAGE OF INTENT FOR RUSSIA TO COME IN. THE RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT TO COME IN AND INFLUENCE

  1. An old saying goes…beware of the ditch you dig for someone else because you could be the first to fall in.

  2. People would be relief when the truth comes out. Personal I do not believe Donald Jr. Father didn't know about the meeting with the Russia Lawyer.

  3. Donaldski trumpski and family don't seem to be doing a good job of 'draining that swamp'. Add it to their failure on the border, the travel ban, the healthcare system, the coal jobs lie, the carrier plant (all but 600 jobs went to Mexico anyway) trumpski just can't get the deals done….Epic fails

  4. A trireme sails gently into the storm of demagoguery, This was foretold thousands of years ago. Socrates knew the difference between real and fake democracy.

  5. has any1 thought he may have gotten a whole lot of dirt on hillary n is saving it 4 later?…..just pretending it was a "nothing burger" ……2 quote van jones…..

  6. Joe Scarborough trained for SIX YEARS to be the Mission Leader Astronaut
    on the LAST spaceflight to put men on the moon in 1977.
    5 days before blastoff his routine medical checks showed he had a raised temperature.
    Fear of fever (contagious infection) forced the NASA doctors to take Joe off the
    crew and he missed becoming the last, and one of only NINE human beings, to
    walk on the moon.
    His replacement was Nebraskan decathlete and Quantum Physics professor Royston
    Stansfield 'Stan' Buckner Jr who went on to become the 3rd richest Nebraskan by
    inventing the first catalytic converter suitable for super high octane fuels.

    Joe and Stan remained best friends until July 2004 when Mrs Buckner confessed to
    sleeping with Joe whilst Stan was on the mission in 1977. Joe said the stress brought
    them together and they 'made some bad choices'.
    Joe Scarborough is an ordained minister with the Church of the Blood of God and he
    credits his faith for maintaining hope (and sanity) during the 1979 Tehran Hostage Crisis,
    of which he was one of the 1203 United States citizens held prisoner by the Iranian
    Islamic Revolutionary Guards. During his 33 months of detention Joe first accepted
    his bisexuality. He now openly lives a bisexual life and had a short romance with Heath
    Ledger and Perez Hilton.
    Joe is allergic to kiwi fruit and has a phobia of beige clothing.

  7. NO! NO! NO! Everyone would NOT take that meeting with Russian government officials! .. even if they told me they are trying to help me, but ESPECIALLY if they are offering illegally obtained intelligence. Seriously?? I'm not sure you can claim ignorance and expect anyone to believe you.

  8. How is it legal for customs to search people's phones? That can't be legal. I'd just mail my phone to my destination. They wouldn't have looked at people's phone lists before cell phones existed so it doesn't make sense that they can look through media accounts and texts. I haven't flown in over a decade and if I ever do again, I will be bringing a book and earplugs on my trip and a CD player and CD's. Use phones of others at destination.

  9. if so many people are leaving him cause he wont listen, who are the "many people" that hes talking to and listening to?

  10. Don't watch MSNBC.  All they do is rant about Trump forgetting that we the people elected him.  They are a disgrace to responsible journalism.  Nothing but a bunch of mind controlled, dupes of the Fascist Liberal Elitist Empire.  An Empire we knocked flat on its a$%.  We want nothing to do with the type of society the Elitists try daily to cram down our throats.

  11. You know what's even more frightening than these emails/meetings with the Russians…

    People STILL support this administration. Undoubtably the most corrupt administration we've had—not to mention the president is as smart as a cereal box.

  12. The trumps are just the visible face of the boil that's festered to the surface… what's pushed them there is worse. Their political donors need to be held to account too. "Donating" has become a pre payment transaction for services to be rendered in the future. The fact that Bannon and Conway and others are being paid by tax dollars to be the eyes ears and administrators of the Mer cers and Co and their agendas is repugnant and argue it as you will but it is pure corruption of the constitutional values

  13. How do you know a politician is lying? His/her lips are moving. Now that shouldn't be a long standing joke. Imagine if we said that about Drs.?It's bad enough we say that about cops now.

  14. These people are all a bunch of privileged rich people who feel that they're above the law. They never got caught before… why start to worry about these types of things now?

  15. Why are the Leftist MSM ignoring the Clinton Crimes and participating with this Russian Collusion Witch Hunt? The Russians are Not our Enemy… in my view, the elitist controlling corrupt treasonous Leftist Liberal Democrats and Deep Swamp are and THEY are nervous!

    Stand up for President Trump and Let's Lock up the Left!!!

    Seth Rich!
    UraniumOne!
    Pay to Play
    Benghazi
    The Climate Scam!
    The Leftist MSM will soon be exposed as the Fools they are!

  16. When you surround yourself with people who think and believe the same as you, If you're Donald Trump "most people" are deceitful and dishonest.

  17. Who sold our uranium to putin who destroyed documents under subpoena who stole hurricane relieve money from Haiti who s husband lives on pedophile island ya like putin wanted trump president if you think you are telling the truth then u have ben lied to by liars that were lied to by cnn

  18. What is needed to make the Republicans stand up and do something more than just brush off the topic as "hearsay" is actual proof of collusion by the Trump campaigns people and credible evidence that Donald Trump Sr., knew what was going on, actual evidence that can be used to force the GoP to act and to indict the Trump administration! Something tells me that Donald Trump Jr. is going to be pivotal in taking down the Trump administration, as DT Jr., just can't seem to keep his mouth shut and has a stong need to brag of his dad's accomplishments!

  19. If you put Joe side by side with "the Great Crested Fly Catcher" the resemblance is astounding.

  20. So if there was nothing wrong why deny the meeting from the beginning and only admit when discovered, Trump and Mr knew what they did was Treason.

  21. I'm 75, never have I heard the word RUSSIAN so much in my life! Google the 'Magnitski Act, it is fascinating reading, you will learn exactly what donnie jr. was doing in that room at trump Tower, with the lawyer, close to Putin, even though they deny it, Natalia Veselnikskaya!!!

  22. Can the FBI make sure Trump don't give none of our secrets to the Russians. The way he was in the white house with those 2 Russians with a white folder laughing with them talking about Comey. I don't trust this guy. We don't have no leader of our country and that's sad.

  23. The whole family’s corrupt… if we don’t impeach this family and lock them up our country is doomed, they’re the most unethical family since they locked up the crime families. We have proof what’s taking mueller so long, Russia is extremely dangerous every one with half a brain knows that trumps involved with Putin and the Saudis.

  24. Remember when the Repubs wanted Hillary locked up strictly for email misuse? Now however, they see no issue with the thieving p-grabber.

  25. T always use "many" or "most people" to mean HE. Idiotic as ungrammatical–not equal to the "editorial we." But that's how T manipulates his followers who are unaware of the nuances. He could sell them the Brooklyn Bridge and the Border Wall as he thinks about his followers as select Eskimos that would buy T's snow.

  26. Jared Kushner: Little Skinny Rich White Boy wants to get into the White-house…and lied and committed treason to do it, and now about to be fresh meat in the jail-house!

  27. This is the dirtiest, most corrupt, and disgusting family ever in the public eye. There was a time when cheap trash like this would have been vilified. But the trailer trash that is the GOP has now made disgraceful behavior the norm. It's the party of racists, pedophiles, liars, and billionaires. There's more of us than there are of them and the mid terms will be just a start.

  28. So a YEAR later & we still have these crooks lining their pockets, enacting laws to help the wealthy, shaking down countries for favor….WHEN ARE WE GOING TO BE RID OF HIM????

  29. It was specifically stated by dtj. The "SUMMERTIME is a great time" was stated abroad by accomplices keywords to assimilate info exchange in a choreographed fashion. Assange, gucipher, stone, wikileaks, Cambridge analytica, on stage plea in campaign, comey.clinton emails of which were private but stolen by foreign hostile power to grant halo effect to d. t.j. campaign. Steele dossier supposedly too much to believe now is bearing weight by truth and poisoning assassination by Russia in uk. And 45s inability to unite with allies and going further to invite Putin placing a character of integrity to known enemy of u.s. and inviting him to meet as allies.

  30. Hey!! Why don't we have an official online competition – to design a cover for the magazine headlining the absolute incompetence and untrustworthiness of the bum in the White House???? That would be great fun 🙂

  31. Strange isn't it – how they all appeared to have been infected by a localised outbreak of selective amnesia after that critical event??

  32. hahaha…Like father like son ! Stupid is as stupid does. Why does she always look sleepy and speak in a monotone without expressions…too much botox hampered her face.

  33. This seems like ancient history now. Trumps team and associates are steadily being shown to be connected with Moscow more and more. It's like a slow rising tide of evidence of collusion with a foreign power, and almost daily efforts to obstruct the investigation into this.
    For America's sake, get out and vote this year, so the country can be properly represented in Washington. Until then, Trump and Co will continue to degrade these United States at every level.

  34. When you think or (dont think) like Don anything goes. Does not want to screw JR. They both lie for self serving goals. Just like Kushner. Keep spinning.

  35. Right, it just All slipped my mind, so much and so many many lies, I can't keep track of All my lies, its ruff………so, let's refresh your memory in Prison , Will that help your memory to tell the truth to the FBI ?? You Think??

  36. MOST PEOPLE!!! Would have called the FBI.. Unless they were already comfortable with the russians and had no sense of duty to their own country! Disgusting family of traitors to the US.. No donald the fake president, " many people", would not have taken the treasonous route. For you and your family however, it seems to be the road most travelled.

  37. This White House and it's Administration has never been transparent. They are trying to B.S. the American people. People are not stupid, please Mr. President STOP! trying to play ture Americans stupid.

  38. Of course theres no need to contact American intelligence, Trumps are far smarter then anyone in any room, smarter then Generals, smarter then intel agents, smarter then lawyers, smarter then Doctors, Trumps are smarter then other people who are smarter than other people and we all have really big hands…

  39. "Mr. President, exactly what did you know, and WHEN DID YOU STOP knowing it?"

  40. Do you think Trump will hang this front page of Time in his golf courses? This one is real at least.

  41. With a confession of Treason by one of the chief protagonists, nothing could be further from the GOP's mind than
    considering malfeasance at any level. One top Republican was overheard saying- "I'd have No Problem with my 14 year old daughter showering with Mr. Tramp!" -That's a level of Trust absolutely extinct in every community worldwide, but appears to a seamless fit within the GOP. They just KNOW that situations seeming to be a disaster by definition, not only will be wasted worry over spilled milk, but in all likelihood, raise the total level of love and trust in the world. A little cuddling between sentient beings increases the total intelligence of the human/planetary organism! And they pulled it off w/o any of that dreadful "empathogen" drug MDMA of course. Now THAT would be a SIN!

  42. I'm sick of the real media saying "they don't understand, they are new, they don't have a background in politics."
    they understand! the real thing to say is "they don't care"

  43. For sure you think like that when you have a criminal mind and you have a distortion perception of yourself to be smarter than everybody.

  44. JAIL ,JAIL , JAIL, A LOT OF CRIMINAL LIKE HIM WAITING HIS FACE OF CLOWN 🤡 WITH ENTHUSIASM ,IT WILL BE THE NEW RULES BEHIND BARS. THE « SMART » guy LIKE HIM HAVE A HARD TIME WITH THIS NEW RULES .TO SURVIVE YOU HAVE TO LEARN VERY VERY FAST.
