I’m glad Donald Trump, Jr. decided to release his email chain pre-emptively. That’s a sympathetic move that many interpret as “nothing to hide here,” so no guilt.
But the emails reveal something very troubling.
The Crown prosecutor of Russia met with his father Aras this morning and in their meeting 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.
This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump – -helped along by Aras and Emin.
Right there, Trump Jr. had every reason to believe he was about to collude with the Russian government to get dirt on Hillary Clinton. And he had no problem with that; maybe it’s just sleazy to do it and not illegal.
But not illegal doesn’t make it okay. I am no lawyer but David French is, and he thinks its really not okay.
I would have thought you were a conspiracy theorist. No one is that explicit, right? That's a bad episode of House of Cards, right? /2

Nope. It's real. And now we're introduced to a new concept — "attempted collusion." Need I say this is not okay? /end

So where do we go from here?
Trump loyalists will say “so what?” Trump opponents will want to pursue treason charges. In the middle, we will have that gray area where we will have to make up our minds at just how bad this looks.
To me, it looks really bad.
Whether this leads to a conspiracy charge somewhere down the line is for the lawyers and Mueller’s investigation to determine. Trump Jr. said “the woman, as she has said publicly, was not a government official.” But Trump would have taken the meeting even if she was, and there’s no evidence from the emails that he didn’t believe she was before the meeting.
Paul Manafort also knew this, as well as Jared Kushner (who has a law degree but does not practice). The top people in Trump’s campaign are now implicated in Trump Jr.’s poor decision. Whatever bus is coming, they will be under it with him.
The fact that nothing came of the meeting doesn’t change the fact that they were willing and ready to collude their collective behinds off. It’s bad.
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
