Donald Trump, Jr.: 'For Me, This Was Opposition Research...' (VIDEO)

Following-up, "Russia Story Has Become the 'Brier Patch' from Which the Trump Administration Cannot Escape."

I was watching the All-Star Game last night, tweeting baseball, when I see all kinds of establishment types, like Professor Daniel Drezner and Maggie Haberman of the New York Times, posting tweets about Donald Trump, Jr.'s, interview on Sean Hannity.

Give me a break!

Don't these people take time off from their campaign of attacks?

This is after 8:00pm on the East Coast, so the Beltway blowhards have been at it all day finding ways to take down the administration. And funny thing? There's no "there" there. There's nothing. Donald Jr. had this meeting in June 2016. Donald Sr. had barely wrapped up the nomination by then and we hadn't had the GOP national convention. This is way early in the campaign season and most establishment hacks thought the Trump presidential bid was a joke. Now Russia's become all-consuming, since this is the one shot leftists have at destroying the president. The New York Times is right: This so-called scandal has emerged as a "brier patch," but more for the partisan hacks in the press than for the Trump administration. President Trump will continue to have an easy target for his rancor and tweet-storms, and rightly so. The genuine problem for Republicans will be the failure to advance their policy goals in the Congress, a failure which the Democrat-Media-Complex is working to bring about. The end result will be more anger at Washington, policy debilitation, and political polarization. Who this helps in 2018 remains to be seen.

In any case, listen for yourself. This is this most I've ever heard Donald, Jr. He's a fine man. I hope he's got as much fortitude and Teflon as his dad, because the attacks are just heating up.
