Since the investigation into the 2016 election by Special Counsel Robert Mueller began, there’s been no leaking from his team of prosecutors and absolute silence from Mueller himself. That can be frustrating when you want to know what progress is being made on the case, but that’s how things have to be in order to guarantee fairness.
Now, however, thanks to a court filing made earlier this year by Mueller’s team of prosecutors in response to motions made by attorneys for 2016 Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, we’ve learned that of particular interest to the special counsel is that infamous June 2016 meeting held at Trump Tower where a Russian lawyer and ex-Russian intelligence officer were supposed to turn over “dirt” they had on Hillary Clinton.
You remember the Trump Tower meeting, don’t you? It’s the one that Donald Trump Jr. was so eager to see take place, telling an associate who was arranging the get-together:
“If it’s what you say I love it especially later in the summer.”
Attendees at the June 2016 meeting on the Trump team’s behalf were Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner, who also happens to be married to Ivanka Trump, daughter of the president. So that gives us two Trump children and a son-in-law who are now either at the meeting or part of the conspiracy.
Some Trump defenders may allege that Ivanka didn’t know the Trump Tower meeting was taking place, but ask yourself this question: Do you honestly think Jared Kushner makes a move without clearing it with Ivanka, who clearly wears the pants in that marriage?
Trump himself is also an intimate part of the conspiracy surrounding the Trump Tower meeting, having helped craft a statement for Donald Jr. to issue regarding what was discussed at the infamous meeting. That alone suggests a charge of obstruction of justice, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the president’s legal exposure.
That only leaves one Trump child other than Tiffany and Barron to account for: Eric Trump.
Back in January, Business Insider reporter Natasha Bertrand revealed that the former digital media director for the Trump 2016 effort, Brad Parscale, bragged on Twitter that Eric Trump and Jared Kushner served as joint campaign managers during the 2016 race. If true, that means Eric Trump is just as deeply involved as Jared, and we already know that Jared is up to his eyebrows in the Russian collusion investigation.
So there you have it: The entire Trump family, other than two Trump children — Tiffany and Barron, who were largely kept away from the campaign other than for photo ops — are now part of the larger conspiracy which culminated in the June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower.
The net is closing on the Trump empire and the Trump spawn. And now we know all of them are part of the plot that hijacked the 2016 election. Mueller is preparing to take every last one of them down.
