As many sources, documents, and individual stories come forward about collaboration between members at all levels of the Trump campaign and Russians, the target honed in on Donald Trump Jr., who they called to testify before the House Intelligence Committee. He will likely do so as early as next week.
With the hearing scheduled for December 6, the closed-door meeting will not have information available to the public, but many have a vested interest from across the country in this meeting. It was recently made public that Trump Jr. coordinated directly with Julian Assange of Wikileaks during the 2016 election season through direct messaging on Twitter from the official Wikileaks Twitter account.
This coordination happened weeks after then-Governor Pence refuted any claims that collaboration existed within the Trump campaign. The indications that this communication was wide-spread are numerous, and yet without concrete evidence and further investigations, Americans will never know the truth of the level of sophistication the Russians used in 2016 to meddle in the Presidential election.
Trump Jr is currently wanted for questioning before three separate committees:
- The House Intelligence Committee
- The Senate Intelligence Committee
- The Senate Judiciary Committee
It appears the House will get the first crack at finding out exactly what Trump Jr. was up to in the 2016 season. However, he has access to lawyers and more than enough prep time to put together innocuous statements and vague refutations without admitting culpability, so it only stands to see if this veneer will be cracked by the committee’s questioning members.
This comes on the heels of President Trump demanding they conclude and close the investigations before the end of the year.
As the illicit conspiracy surrounding Trump begins to fall apart under Mueller’s investigation, it is even more evident that he is worried about the truth going public.
Republican Mike Conaway, the leading member of the House Intelligence Committee’s response to Trump’s demand for the investigation to conclude by the end of the year, was pretty damning for the President.
That would be a surprise.
In fact, according to sources close to Conaway, it is very likely this investigation may continue well into the 2018 election season.
