News keeps breaking about Donald Trump Jr., and it’s hard to keep up. So far, we know he met with a Russian lawyer who had promised him documents incriminating Hillary Clinton. In the email exchange setting up that meeting, we learned three things. First, that a person whom the intermediary called “a Russian government lawyer” reached out to the campaign wanting to help. Second, the intermediary specifically mentions the Russian government’s desire to help Trump win the US election. And third, Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner, and Donald Trump Jr. all knew about this effort, and instead of reporting it to the FBI, they took the meeting.

    People are still gonna love trump after this rip

  3. Jimmy Fontana says:

    Trump Jr. should have deleted all his emails instead of releasing them. We all know that the left is fine with that!

  4. Frank Peter Postma says:

    The real question is why would he willingly share incriminating emails with the public. There must be an angle we are not seeing yet

    PLEASE READ. I have a genuine question which I would like an honest thought out response to? 14 different intelligence agencies have reported Russian hacking in the election. multiple administrations heads have been let go fired or recused themselves. now there’s definitive prove of collusion. granted most of the media as covered this intensely and overly stated but proof and facts are still here so just like Hillary made her mistakes Trump has made his. HOW IS THIS FAKE??? are the intelligence agencies lying, are the news agencies completely lying and pulling all this stuff out if thin air even though there is proof and testimony from foreign and domestic government sources.

    The American people are the most ignorant and stubborn in the world. This country isn’t a democracy, its an oligarchy.

    what frustrates me is that trump’s supporters will look at this and just say it’s *fake news*

  8. emory grove says:

    vox is scrambling around to connect dots that arnt even on the same page. Don Jr. released the emails and proved that nothing came out of it. I find it sick that Vox supposedly champions bi-partisan news but refuses to accept that Hillary Clinton is a criminal. fyi the Russian that sent the emails said to never be connected to the Kremlin.

  9. Ed Sal says:

    Why are people panicking? This level of deception and corruption has been present in every US President for at least the past 20 years, expect now its now its more transparent. Instead of complaining, do something about it.

    They REALLY want Pence because he’ll give in to THEIR money grubbing schemes rather then Drumpf who is only thinking of himself. & the REST of US? Well, we’re easier to control if we’re broke, uneducated and desperate. Oh, and let’s privatize everything to solidify that oligarchy. Zero input = Zero resistance :O-

  12. Michael says:

    Why is this trending with 100,000 views but conservative viewpoint videos get 3 million views in a few days and never hit trending? How biased Youtube.

    Rename the title to “Why Donald Trump Jr.’s emails DON’T change anything because they fail to prove an collusion or any wrong doing on Trump’s behalf.”
