"President Donald Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., remains in hot water due to a report that he met with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 presidential election in order to obtain dirt on Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
“This was an effort to get opposition research on an opponent in an American political campaign from the Russians who were known to be engaged in spying inside the United States,” said Richard W. Painter, who worked as chief White House ethics lawyer for President George W. Bush from 2005 to 2007. “We do not get our opposition research from spies, we do not collaborate with Russian spies, unless we want to be accused of treason.”
He added, “This is unacceptable. This borders on treason, if it is not itself treason, depending on whether The New York Times story is true.”
The controversy surrounding Trump stems from his decision to meet with Natalia Veselnitskaya, a Russian lawyer with close connections to the Kremlin, in June 2016. Joined by Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and his then-campaign manager Paul Manafort, Trump is reported to have met with Veselnitskaya because she claimed to have dirt on Hillary Clinton.”*
