Trump Jr. admits he would have acted differently about Russian meeting

Source:  The Blaze

Sean Hannity interviewed Donald Trump Jr. during the political firestorm over his recently revealed meeting with a Russian lawyer in search of damaging information on Hillary Clinton before the election. Trump Jr. implied that he regretted his actions.

Hannity appeared on Martha MacCallum’s show to preview his exclusive Tuesday.

“In retrospect, I probably would have done things a little differently,” he told Hannity.

“Again, and this is before the Russian mania,” he continued, “this is before they were building it up in the press.”

“For me this was opposition research,” Trump Jr. said, “they had something maybe concrete evidence to all the stories I’d been hearing about but they were probably underreported for years, not just during the campaign.”

“So I think I wanted to hear it out,” he explained, “but really it went no where and it was apparent that wasn’t what the meeting was actually about.”

Hannity blamed the media for exaggerating the scandal, saying that America is in the biggest “informational crisis” in its history.

Hannity told MacCallum that he actually ran out of questions for the son of the president during their meeting as a way of showing how unimportant the story was.

Trump Jr. released the emails he received from a publicist about the controversial meeting before the New York Times could report that he believed he would obtain damaging information on Hillary Clinton from the Russian government. Tuesday it was reported that Special Counsel Mueller would expand his investigation into the meeting and the emails Trump Jr. revealed.
