When Trump began swearing there were no tapes proving his collusion with Russia to rig the election, we all wondered where the hell that came from. No one was even talking about tapes at the time, but now we may know what tapes Trump was trying to deny.
According to well-known political insider Claude Taylor, “A source with knowledge of the investigation tells me that IC had “ears on” Russian lawyer. The meeting was recorded. Donald, Jr is toast.”
Kremlin attorney had been tracked by the intel community for quite some time and has recordings of Trump Jr.’s meeting as a result.
A few weeks ago Trump tweeted “The real story is that President Obama did NOTHING after being informed in August about Russian meddling. With 4 months looking at Russia under a magnifying glass, they have zero ‘tapes’ of T people colluding. There is no collusion & no obstruction. I should be given apology!”
This would have been about the same time the New York Times would have been finishing up the story and reaching out the White House for comment. Clearly, Trump was trying to distract from the story he knew was about to break.
If these tapes exist, Trump Jr is going to be facing criminal charges from espionage to treason. Donald Trump is literally on a sinking ship and he is not going to be able to get his kids on the life boats.
