Twitter Totally Isn’t Buying Don Jr.’s Senate Testimony: ‘Absurd Even For a Tragically Incurious Dolt’

You knew the Twitterverse was going to have a lot to say now that the Senate Judiciary Committee has released their transcripts from Donald Trump Jr.’s testimony about his meeting with a Kremlin lawyer.

Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) released thousands of documents from the hearing where the president’s son was grilled about the 2016 Trump Tower meeting where he and his father’s staff met with Russian officials. The hope was that the Trump campaign would collect damaging information that could cripple Hillary Clinton‘s presidential campaign.

The transcript shows Trump Jr. insisting that his father didn’t know about the meeting in advance, but it also includes tidbits like the part where it appears Trump Sr. played a role in drafting the false statement on why the meeting took place. Since the excerpts have already provided some interesting new information, Twitter users are taking notice and predicting that this will all create new intrigue on Russia and potential campaign collusion.
