Trump’s Son Said To Have Met With Russian Lawyer After “Promise Of Damaging Hillary Info”: NYT

from ZeroHedge:
Two days after the NYT reported that Donald Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., together with then campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner – but without Donald Trump himself being present – had met at the Trump Tower with a lawyer who was allegedly “Kremlin connected” on June 9, 2016, shortly after Trump was assured of the Republican nomination, the NY Times has followed up with a new article, one which seeks to explain the one thing that was missing from the original NYT article: the motive behind said meeting, as in retrospect it turned out that members of Trump’s campaign simply meeting with a Russian lawyer was less exciting than the NYT had hoped.

Curiously, when the NYT reported of the original meeting it did not have the dramatic punchline it was hoping for – it needed its readers help for that. As it explains, “the Times reported the existence of the meeting on Saturday. But in subsequent interviews, the advisers and others revealed the motivation behind it.” In other words, the new batch of anonymous sources only stepped up after reading the original report which, for lack of a better word, was disappointing.
