Democrats had claimed that the calls showed clear collusion between the Trump’s and Russians on how to get ‘dirt’ on Hillary, a claim that has been repeatedly refuted by both men.
In fact, Devin Nunes has speculated that the entire Trump Tower meeting was probably arranged by Clinton and her team to create a ‘set-up’ for the collusion narrative they were pushing in the paid-for fake dossier against Donald Trump.
“Senate investigators obtained phone records which appeared to show that Trump Jr. had actually spoken to two longtime Trump family friends – Brian France, the chief executive of Nascar, and the investor Howard Lorber, the New York Times reported, citing two people briefed on the matter.”
Trump Jr. responded to the reports on Twitter:
“Has anyone heard from Adam Schiff?” Trump Jr. tweeted. “I imagine he’s busy leaking other confidential info from the House Intelligence Committee to change the subject?!?”
Has anyone heard from Adam Schiff?

Schiff appeared on MSNBC and tried to save face, Thursday night. He claimed democrats were unable to confirm the reporting “because the Republicans wouldn’t let us get the phone records.”
Wait… what? Give us a break.
Schiff was also busted a few days ago having deliberately lied in the rebuttal to Devin Nunes memo concerning whether individuals in the ODJ and FBI knew that the dossier was paid for by the ‘opposition’ party.
That’s twice now, Schiff.
Trump Jr. said in a statement to the Times that, “After a year of hearing about this one ad nauseam, yet another left-wing narrative officially bites the dust.”
President Trump responded to the report as well:
“Just out: The big deal, very mysterious Don Jr telephone calls, after the innocent Trump Tower meeting, that the media & Dems said were made to his father (me), were just conclusively found NOT to be made to me,” Trump wrote. “They were made to friends & business associates of Don. Really sad!”
He followed up later Thursday with a second tweet, saying “This witch hunt must end!”

“Trump Jr. has maintained that Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer he met with at Trump Tower, did not have any information to share and instead wanted to discuss the Magnitsky Act and other sanctions.”
The Trump Tower meeting has been under intense scrutiny from investigators seeking whether Trump colluded with Russia in the 2016 presidential election, because many people argue, it was designed as a trap against a man who was not colluding with Russians.
The more information that comes out, the more Americans can see that Donald Trump was never supposed to win the election, and he was supposed to be removed quickly if he did. Of course, that didn’t happen.
