Sen Da Nang Blumenthal knows about lying. He did it for many years as he told about his exploits in Viet Nam. President Trump went to Viet Nam for the first time in his life, which puts him up by one to Sen Da Nang Blumenthal. Blumenthal is the Byron Williams of the US Senate.
Now, he says that Don Trump lied about his father not knowing about the Trump Tower meeting, which is ridiculous since even if he did know, there was nothing illegal about it. But, more importantly, Da nang says that Cohen testified that Jr lied. But, he didn’t. Cohen says that Jr told his dad that he had a meeting set up.
He did not say what meeting and Cohen offered nothing but conjecture about the meeting.
Thursday on MSNBC’s “All In,” Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) said he thought Donald Trump, Jr. lied during his testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Blumenthal said, “I would anticipate Donald Trump, Jr. hopefully coming back before the Judiciary Committee. He testified before the Judiciary Committee that his father had no advanced knowledge about the Trump Tower meeting on June 9.”
Hayes asked, “He told you under oath in closed session?”
Blumenthal said, “He told us under potential penalty of perjury. Michael Cohen yesterday described in some detail a meeting where the president was told by Donald Trump Jr. about that meeting and events.”
He continued, “He told about the conversation with Roger Stone where the president encouraged and approved Roger Stone talking to Wikileaks about the dump of stolen, I emphasize stolen e-mails.”
