Judge for yourself how serious this is.
"“This was . . . unnecessary,” said one of the president’s advisers, who like most other people interviewed for this article spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive internal deliberations. “Now someone can claim he’s the one who attempted to mislead. Somebody can argue the president is saying he doesn’t want you to say the whole truth.”
"Although misleading the public or the news media is not a crime, advisers to Trump and his family told The Washington Post that they fear any indication that Trump was seeking to hide information about contacts between his campaign and Russians almost inevitably would draw additional scrutiny from Mueller.
Trump, they say, is increasingly acting as his own lawyer, strategist and publicist, often disregarding the recommendations of the professionals he has hired.
“He refuses to sit still,” the presidential adviser said. “He doesn’t think he’s in any legal jeopardy, so he really views this as a political problem he is going to solve by himself.”
The Washington Post has a gazillion sources for the fact that Trump composed what he wanted Jr. to say which means he knew and was putting out a lie...(big surprise!). It came from high up the leak so who? Some even suggested allegedly Ivanka and/or Jared themselves but I don't know about that. I suspect it could not be they. Who knows when responses change by the second when new evidence comes out.
It's got to come out I would think but who the hell knows in this colossal mess and we have a liar in chief
