From the DCCC:
Do Taylor, Garrett, Brat, and Comstock now believe the Trump campaign colluded with Russia?
The New York Times reported today that Donald Trump, Jr., Jared Kushner, and Trump Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort attended a meeting in June 2016 with a Russian lawyer about “very high level and sensitive information” and was a “part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.”
Donald Trump, Jr. eagerly set up the meeting, telling his contact that “if it’s what you say I love it especially later in the summer.”
This latest piece of evidence isn’t just a smoking gun. It’s evidence that the Trump campaign was willing and eager to collude with the Russian government in an attempt to distort and undermine our democracy. It’s time for a straightforward answer to a simple question: Do Representatives Taylor, Garrett, Brat, and Comstock now believe the Trump campaign colluded with Russia?
“This goes beyond partisan politics and Representatives Scott Taylor, Tom Garrett, Dave Brat, and Barbara Comstock must show leadership on this important issue,” said DCCC spokesperson Cole Leiter. “American intelligence agencies have already determined Russia worked to undermine our elections last year and now there is proof that Trump campaign officials were willing and eager accomplices. Virginia Republicans should have the courage to say so.”
