'The Crown Prosecutor of Russia ... Offered to Provide the Trump Campaign With ... Information That Would Incriminate Hillary'
Minutes ahead of a new New York Times report detailing the contents of the email chain that set up Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian government attorney, the president's eldest son has stunningly posted all four pages of the email to Twitter.
In them, the woman Trump met with is described as a "Russian government attorney," and they say "The Crown prosecutor of Russia ... 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."
They go on to note, "This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump."
In the email, Trump Jr. says if the information is as you describe, "I love it."
Below are the emails, which are challenging to read, but worth the few minutes investment.
More to come.

The Trump campaign, it is clear, knew the Russian government wanted to help get Donald Trump elected, and rather than call the FBI, took the meeting.
