As the old saying goes, it’s never the actual crime but the coverup that ultimately leads to ruin in Washington.
And on Morning Joe, Wednesday, Scarborough dropped the freighted term and went further saying that the White House itself had participated in an organized coverup of emails indicating that Donald Trump Jr. had attempted to collude with Russia to discredit Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign.
Scarborough blasted Trump Sr. — the President of the United States — for attempting to lie on behalf of his son until it become apparent that the New York Times had obtained emails which showed the truth.
“It was a lie. That statement was a lie. It had to do with adoptions. They had to retract it immediately. They have to keep retracting statements. It got so bad yesterday that Donald Trump Jr. knew the Times was about to completely expose what he said was a lie,” he said. “This is part of, at least Saturday, was part of a White House coverup.”
Those paying attention will recall that originally there was no meeting, then a meeting about adoption, before finally a meeting fort the express purpose of soliciting dirt from Russia on Hillary Clinton which was also attended by Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort.
“I probably would have done things a little differently,” Trump Jr. said last night on Hannity.
We would certainly hope so!
