Experts are warning that Donald Trump Jr. may have violated federal criminal statutes by meeting with Russia, and has now placed himself in legal jeopardy by admitting that the meeting took place.

Experts are warning that Donald Trump Jr. may have violated federal criminal statutes by meeting with Russia, and has now placed himself in legal jeopardy by admitting that the meeting took place.

Politico reported:
But perhaps far more important, his statements put him potentially in legal crosshairs for violating federal criminal statutes prohibiting solicitation or acceptance of anything of value from a foreign national, as well as a conspiracy to defraud the United States.

…..

But legal experts of both political parties say his explanations may not fly if he’s questioned under oath by Congress or Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating potential Trump campaign collusion with Russia – and where perjury and making false statements carry legal consequences that don’t exist when engaging with reporters or on social media.

One by one the members of Trump’s family are getting themselves into legal trouble. The circle is getting tighter and closer to Donald Trump himself. The dominoes are beginning to fall. Trump tried to keep his secrets hidden by only trusting a few people, but the truth is coming out.

If Donald Trump Jr. ever faces criminal charges, it will be interesting to see if he takes the fall or turns on dear old dad to stay out of prison.
