What exactly did Trump Jr. do wrong?

Reading through this article makes my head spin. I think what it saying is:
    * Veselnitskaya worked for a group trying to get the Magnitsky Act repealed, which would loosen some restrictions on certain prominent Russians.
    * As part of this effort, she met (or tried to meet) with both the Trump and Clinton camps, likely trying to cover all of the bases, depending on which way the election went.
    * She promised "dirt" to both camps, actually delivering (or at least it was delivered by the same group) the fake dossier on Trump to Clinton, but nothing on Clinton was actually delivered to the Trump camp.
    * At no time was Veselnitskaya representing or directly working for the Russian government.
So to summarize, Trump Jr. met with someone who said they could help his dad's campaign by providing "incriminating information" against Clinton, from the same group who provided the fake incriminating information on his dad.

One thing that seems to be lost in all of this (not surprisingly) - what was the alleged "dirt" on Clinton? Not that it could be any worse than what we already, but it seems someone should be asking.

It's even less than that. On the ballot, there was an (R) next to his name. That is the only reason that is needed by many.

The Russian lawyer had previously been denied entry to the US, but later was admitted and photographed at a congressional hearing in the company of Obama officials.

Sounds like a setup.

This woman also is said to have ties to the Russian "research company " that created the dirty dossier on Trump.

Smells like a setup.

What did he do wrong? ...
He turned over an innocent E-Mail and didn't use BleachBit and wipe the server like with a cloth?

It's rumored he mave have used Kapersy Antivirus which is a Russian program based out of Moscow and if he ever called their Support hotline in Russia ... :shock: :shock: :shock: :eek6

Typical leftist tripe. Donald Trump Jr. does not work in the administration and he neither has nor has he applied for security clearance.

If he does not have a clearance than, my statement is false and an apology is warranted, I am sorry.

He helped his dad win the election. He met with some Russian trying to get dirt on Hillary. It didn't pan out, so he left. But it is guilt by association...association with Trump, with Republicans, and Russia (the MSM is so rabid over getting their tails whipped on this non-existent Russia angle they'll grasp at anything close).

Turns out the Russian lawyer that Trump Jr. met with was initially denied a visa, then later granted a special one just in time for her meeting with Trump, all by the Obama administration. The "special" visa she was granted is "given 'sparingly' and in 'extraordinary circumstances,' including urgent humanitarian reasons, such as medical or family emergency."

So if I have this straight:

1. Russian lawyer (or at least the company she keeps) plays role in fake dossier on Trump, which backfires on Democrats.
2. Same lawyer tells Trump she has dirt on Clinton (which has never actually come out) and wants to meet.
3. Obama administration gives Russian lawyer special visa just in time to meet with Trump.
4. Democrats accuse Trump of collusion with Russians.

Hmm... can anyone say "setup"?
