INTENDED TO COLLUDE WITH RUSSIA. ERROL BARNETT, CBS NEWS NEW JERSEY. THE PRESIDENT’S ATTORNEY WAS ON SUNDAY MORNING TALK SHOWS DEFENDING DONALD TRUMP JR.’S MEETINGS SAYING THAT IT WAS NOT ILLEGAL AND PRESIDENT TRUMP HAD NO KNOWLEDGE OF THE MEETING. ONE OF THE MOST OFTEN QUOTED EXPERTS ON PRESIDENTIAL ACTIONS IN THE COUNTRY WAS THE CHIEF ETHICS LAWYER FOR GEORGE W. BUSH AND AS THE VICE-CHAIRMAN FOR THE CITIZENS OF RESPONSIBILITY AND ETHICS IN WASHINGTON IS PART OF THE LAWSUIT AGAINST THE PRESIDENT ARGUING PRESIDENT TRUMP IS IN VIOLATION OF THE CONSTITUTION. THE PROFESSOR IS HERE WITH US RIGHT NOW, THANK YOU FOR COMING IN. OKAY, THE PRESIDENT’S ATTORNEY ON ALL THE TALK SHOWS SAYING THAT DONALD TRUMP JR.’S MEETING WAS NOT ILLEGAL WHAT IS YOUR OPINION? WHAT THIS IS ABOUT IS THAT THESE PEOPLE WILL DO ANYTHING IN ORDER TO WIN. THAT IS A CLEAR MESSAGE. THEY WOULD DO ANYTHING TO WIN. WHEN YOU HAVE A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT KNOWN FOR CONDUCTING ESPIONAGE IN THE UNITED STATES A FOREIGN ADVERSARY APPROACHING A POLITICAL CAMPAIGN IN AMERICA AND THEY SAY WE HAVE DIRT LET’S SET UP A MEETING THERE WAS ONLY WANTING TO DO, CALL THE FBI. DO YOU THINK THE MEETING WAS ILLEGAL OR UNETHICAL? I THINK IT WAS ILLEGAL. WE HAVE A RANGE OF STATUTES TO DEAL WITH THIS CONDUCT, CAMPAIGN FINANCE LAWS PROHIBITING FOREIGN NATIONALS AND FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS FROM ASSISTING WITH POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS. WE HAVE COMPUTER HACKING LAWS AND IT IS CLEAR THE RUSSIANS HAVE BEEN ENGAGED IN COMPUTER HACKING IN OUR COUNTRY FOR A LONG TIME. WE DON’T KNOW THAT SUBJECT CAME UP BUT IT IS LIKELY THAT IT DID. WE HAVE A LOT OF LAWS TO DEAL WITH. A4 GOVERNMENT IS TRYING TO INTERFERE THERE WAS ONLY ONE APPROPRIATE RESPONSE, GO TO THE FBI AND TELL THEM BECAUSE AT THE END OF THE DAY DONALD TRUMP IS AN AMERICAN, HILLARY CLINTON IS AN AMERICAN. IT IS TO BE MADE WITHOUT INTERFERENCE. YOU WERE ONE OF THE COUNCILS TO GEORGE W. BUSH SO YOU HAVE BEEN IN THE WHITE HOUSE, LET ME ASK YOU, IN THIS MEETING WASN’T THERE SOMETHING OF VALUE THAT HAD TO BE EXCHANGED IN ORDER FOR THIS TO BE AN ILLEGAL ACT? AND WHAT DONALD TRUMP JR. HAS SAID IS THERE IS NO INFORMATION. THAT IS WHAT THEY ARE SAYING. IF THERE WAS NOT GOING TO BE ANY INFORMATION THEN WHY DID THE TOP THREE PEOPLE IN THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN GO TO THIS MEETING WITH A RUSSIAN AGENT? NOT ONLY THE RUSSIAN LAWYER WAS THERE BUT A RUSSIAN LOBBYIST WHO HAD BEEN WORKING ON THE SANCTIONS ISSUE TRYING TO GET THE SANCTIONS LIFTED. IT APPEARS THERE WAS A QUID PRO QUO AT LEAST IMPLICIT OF WHAT THE RUSSIANS WANTED WAS THE SANCTIONS LIFTED IF DONALD TRUMP WON AND IN RETURN THEY WOULD HELP DONALD TRUMP WIN BY GIVING THE DIRT. DONALD TRUMP JR. IS NOT PART OF THE ADMINISTRATION. HE IS RUNNING THE FAMILY COMPANY, JARED KUSHNER IS PART OF THE ADMINISTRATION A SENIOR AIDE TO THE PRESIDENT. IS HE IN TROUBLE BECAUSE IT APPEARS HE DID NOT DISCLOSE THIS MEETING OR SEVERAL OTHER MEETINGS AS HE HAD TO REVISE HIS DISCLOSURE. THAT COULD VERY WELL BE A PROBLEM. ONE OF THE WAYS WE DEAL WITH THIS CONDUCT WHEN PEOPLE MEET WITH FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS WHEN THEY SHOULDN’T BE IS THROUGH THE STATUTES THAT PROHIBIT FALSE STATEMENTS TO THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT. FALSE STATEMENTS CAN BE PROSECUTED. IF HE FEELS OUT FORMS SAYING HE HAD NO MEETINGS AND HE DID THAT IS A CRIMINAL ACT IN ITSELF. WE HAVE A RANGE OF DIFFERENT PEOPLE A LOT OF PEOPLE IN THE ADMINISTRATION WHO HAVE BEEN LYING ABOUT CONTACTS WITH THE RUSSIANS. LET ME ASK YOU, THE LAWSUIT CLAIMING PRESIDENT TRUMP IS IN VIOLATION ENRICHING HIMSELF FROM FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS, YOUR ORGANIZATION BROUGHT THE LAWSUIT. DO YOU HAVE TO PROVE YOU HAVE BEEN INJURED YOUR ORGANIZATION HAS BEEN INJURED TO FILE THIS CLAIM? YES, THERE ARE SEVERAL AND WE ALSO HAVE LAWSUITS FROM CONGRESS AND THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF MARYLAND DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA. ARE LAWSUIT ALLEGES THAT OUR GROUP WHICH FOCUSES ON THE CONFLICTS OF INTEREST IN GOVERNMENT HAS HAD TO SPEND TIME AND MONEY FOCUSING ON THE ADDITIONAL PROBLEMS BROUGHT UP THROUGH FOREIGN GOVERNMENT PAYMENTS TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES WHICH VIOLATES THE CONSTITUTION. THAT IS CRITICALLY IMPORTANT BECAUSE THE FOUNDERS UNDERSTOOD THAT FOREIGN POWERS WOULD SEEK TO MANIPULATE THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT THROUGH PAYMENTS MADE TO US GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AND THAT IS WHY THE PAYMENTS ARE PROHIBITED AND WE BELIEVE PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS TAKEN SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNTS OF MONEY FROM RUSSIA OR CHINA OR WHEREVER. WE NEED TO FIND OUT WHERE THE MONEY IS COMING FROM IN THE TRUMP ORGANIZATION. THAT WAY WE CAN MAKE SURE HE IS COMPLY WITH THE CONSTITUTION. PROFESSOR, THANK YOU SO MUCH. I KNOW PEOPLE MAGAZINE IS

    Harry Hussein's lack of a valid identity is illegal. Where is the outrage at that? Hillary was irresponsible with classified information, sold American uranium to the Russians and overthrew foreign governments. Loretta Lynch covered up for Hillary. There was election fraud among the Democrats. The Democrats had dealings with the same Russian lawyer. Democrats continue to attack and undermine the President without a reason. Rhinos are doing the same. Donald Jr isn't the President. The Bush Presidents were weak and lost control. We want Donald Trump as our President.

    Ethics advisor for President Bush? That is an oxymoron.

    Re George Clooney> I think you should stop bringing any news about George Clooney to the public. He is a traitor and a hypocrite. Any publicity is advantageous to him as it keeps his name in the public. He needs to be completely ignored. I regret that he cannot be exiled. He left the U.S., demeaning our President.
    He has given up his right to live here.

    Then why isn't Clinton being investigated on the real illegalities with foreign hostile countries? Were is the genuine investigative reporting? This why the country does not pay much attention to your scripted news stories. The only reason I heard this was because I went to feed the dogs and this popped up next on the play list. I would never had listened to your so called news on purpose.

    Richard Painter; You said, "I THINK it was illegal…" We don't care what you THINK; we care about laws. Donald Trump Jr. broke no laws. Our President cannot be charged with even a misdemeanor. Hang it up.

    Who let the russian lawyer in without a valid visa? The russians and democrats worked hand in glove to destroy America. Democrats are the greatest enemy of AMERICA all of them corrupt. Two more witnesses commit suicide a day before testifying? ENOUGH!!

    You lying leftist piece of garbage! Americans see right through your evil. You will be held accountable. Trying to make Americans pay for the election loss of the evil democrats we'll see who pays the piper.

    One day after trump is either in jail or not a president anymore people will look back with astonishment that some Americans actually supported trump and criticized the media for exposing him and his corrupt administration. It's hard to believe we have an educational system yet people still believe conspiracy theories and other right wing propaganda. If trump was to start WWIII his supporters would call it fake news.
