Surely you remember the story: A Russian businessman with ties to Trump contacted Donald Trump Jr. to offer documents that would “incriminate Hillary” as “part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump,” and Trump Jr. responded with “love it.” Subsequently, he, Jared Kushner and Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort all met with a Russian lawyer about this, but they all supposedly kept Donald Trump in the dark about all of it, both before and after the meeting. According to CNN, the Trump team “offered misleading explanations and changed their story several times. But one claim stayed consistent: Trump had no knowledge of the meeting beforehand.” But because the world loves twists, Trump’s embattled lawyer is now saying otherwise, that Trump knew of the meeting, but Trump took to his favorite platform to dispute Michael Cohen’s claim. Surely Trump’s ignorance seems far-fetched, but he also has an impeccable track record of honesty, so it’s hard to know who to believe. So, we’ll just leave it up to you to decide what’s more plausible.
