Trumps again

Yahoo has an article about 'proof' of Donald Junior's actions:

Donald Trump Jr. posted purported emails arranging a meeting with Russian lawyer:
Donald Trump Jr. released what he says are screen grabs of the full email chain allegedly arranging the meeting between himself and a Russian attorney who allegedly had damaging information about Hillary Clinton.
The meeting took place at Trump Tower on 9 June 2016, and was arranged by Rob Goldstone, an acquaintance of Trump's. Trump posted a statement about the situation as well as three pages of emails between himself and Goldstone, saying in the statement that he was doing so "in order to be totally transparent".
In the chain between him and Goldstone, Goldstone describes the lawyer as "a Russian government attorney" and her name is not listed in the emails.
The exchange appears to have begun on 3 June 2016, when Goldstone, a music producer and friend of Donald Trump Jr.’s, reached out to the then-candidate's eldest son. Goldstone appears to reference one of his clients, Emin Agalarov, in the email. Agalarov is a singer from Azerbaijan who is the son of a wealthy businessman, Aras Agalarov.
"Emin just called and asked me to contact you with something very interesting," Goldstone wrote on 3 June, according to the screen grab.
"The Crown Prosecutor of Russia met with his father Aras this morning and, in their meeting, offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia, and would be very useful to your father," Goldstone wrote, according to the screen grab. "This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russian support for Trump, helped along by Aras and Emin," Goldstone allegedly continued.
Donald Trump Jr. has previously confirmed that he brought his brother-in-law and then-campaign adviser Jared Kushner to the meeting, as well as then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort. He and his father's lawyers said President Trump was not involved in the meeting and on Monday deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that President Trump learned about the meeting "in the last couple of days."
Donald Trump Jr. has already released statements on the meeting, and agreed to share information about it with the Senate Intelligence Committee.
He released an additional statement with the alleged emails today:
"To everyone, in order to be totally transparent, I am releasing the entire email chain of my emails with Rob Goldstone about the meeting on 9 June 2016. The first email on 3 June 2016 was from Goldstone, who was relating a request from Emin, a person I knew from the 2013 Miss Universe Pageant. Emin and his father have a very highly respected company in Moscow. The information they suggested they had about Hillary Clinton I thought was political opposition research. I first wanted to just have a phone call but, when that didn't work out, they said the woman would be in New York City and asked if I would meet. I decided to take the meeting. The woman, as she has said publicly, was not a government official. And, as we have said, she had no information to provide and wanted to talk about adoption policy and the Magnitsky Act. To put this in context, this occurred before the current Russian fever was in vogue. As Rob Goldstone said just today in the press, the entire meeting was 'the most inane nonsense I ever heard. And I was actually agitated by it,'" the statement reads.
Rico says the Trumps never fail to amuse...
