Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, November 07, 2018

Two days ago, Gabriel Sherman reported that White House officials are concerned about Donald Jr. "I'm very worried about Don Jr.," a former West Wing official told Sherman, who fears Mueller will be able to prove perjury. Deep in a report about Trump's 2020 campaign plans, Politico drops the news this morning that Trump Jr. "has told friends in recent weeks that he believes he could be indicted." If it's what you're saying, we love it. The details of the expected indictment remain to be seen. But if Trump Jr. did lie under oath, the obvious question is why. He had a lawyer, who presumably informed him of the dangers of perjury. Why take the risk of perjury to deny having informed his father about a meeting with Russian officials if the contacts produced absolutely nothing?

What are the odds that the bloated child rapist strokes out after half-scoop gets indicted?

Donnie Jr. has always been the idiot of the family, which is why he has been kept away from the WH IMO. I will not be surprised if he gets indicted since he has always been a loose cannon like his father.

"Why take the risk of perjury to deny having informed his father about a meeting with Russian officials if the contacts produced absolutely nothing?"

Because the meeting did produce "something". The whole purpose of Trump's attempt to cover-up is to prevent that information from ever reaching the public.

If Humpy Jr has to go to jail to protect the Humpy legacy then, well, so be it. Humpy Jr is "disposable" after all.

Just ask CA Gov. Elect Gavin Newsom's ex, Kimberly Guilfoyle, how disposable he is in about 6 months.

Junior is small potatoes. I can see Mueller using indictment against both him and Kushner as leverage to get Trump in a corner.

The real question is:

Can Trump issue pardons for his family members while he, himself, is under indictment but not yet convicted? Because if he can, these dingbats aren't going to do a minute of time.

"if Trump Jr. did lie under oath, the obvious question is why."

Manafort can probably shed some light on that.

Presidential pardons have zero effect on convictions on charges brought by state prosecutors.

They might not spend a day in a Club Fed, but Sing Sing has rooms available.

Yes, I knew that. I was talking about federal.
