Do you know that this same guy is claiming that the FBI was in fact illegally spying on Trump for political reasons.

This madness is far worse than the Obama birther stuff. How many times can you beat a dead horse? Will they drag it on to his 2nd term?

Don Junior lied to Congress? Of course he did. That's what the Trump family does.

Perjury. Lock him up.

A few facts.

Butina was being tracked by the FBI as soon as she got here. She was actually turned down twice for visas to enter the country. Kerry's state dept gave her an expedited visa to enter the country. They knew everything she was doing - and if she had met with Trump Jr., it would have been reported already.

April 7, 8, 2015 - Butina, Torshin visited the Treasury Dept.

April 10, 2015 - Butina, Torshin met w/ Scott Walker

April 16, 2015 - She was at the Univ of South Dakota.

Byrne didn't meet Butina until July 2015 - three months after this alleged meeting with Trump Jr. took place.

-----------------

From the visa link above (written in July 2018)... take note...

Butina would go on to attend the annual NRA conventions in 2015 and 2016, posting online and being photographed with Froman, NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre and other organization leaders, and Republican stalwarts like Rick Santorum and Tom Delay. At the 2015 convention in Tennessee, she spoke Russian with Scott Walker, she said on social media. Walker’s “Our American Revival” political committee also posted several photos of Walker, Butina and Torshin on its website. That July, Butina flew to Waukesha, Wisconsin, to attend Walker’s launch of his presidential bid. She posted photos of that event on Facebook and Twitter too. When Walker’s campaign fizzled, she focused her attention on the Trump campaign, according to her social media posts and Justice Department documents.


Butina wanted Walker. They met at the NRA, and she eventually flew to Wisconsin in July before he fizzled out. THEN she became interested in Trump.

I don't believe Byrne confirmed any such meeting, mentioned in the OP, ever took place - especially since he didn't even know her at the time.

Hold the excitement, the source story comes from RT. Everyone knows RT is Russia Today, right? You know, the official media outlet of the Russian government?
