And so it finally begins - anonymous sources inside the White House ratted out Donald Trump's son, Don Jr., to the New York Times for a bombshell story about his meeting last year with a Russian lawyer who said she had access to Hillary Clinton's emails.
And everything Junior has written, tweeted, or posted since then has merely incriminated him even more. He's basically admitted to treason.
But this is just the tip of the iceberg. Son-in-law Jared Kushner and Manager Paul Manafort were also included in the email chain and attended the same meeting. They are both Kompromat with a capitol K.
From NBC News
WASHINGTON — Donald Trump Jr. met with a Russian lawyer who he believed had damaging information about Hillary Clinton in the midst of the 2016 election — and wrote "I love it" about the prospect of getting his hands on the material, according to emails released Tuesday by the president's eldest son.
The email exchange shows an acquaintance with ties to Russia, music publicist Rob Goldstone, told the son of then-candidate Donald Trump last year that the attorney has "information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father."
. . . In an interview Tuesday night on Fox News Channel's "Hannity," Trump Jr. said: "Someone sent me an email! I can't help what someone sends me. I read it, I responded accordingly, and if there was something interesting there, I think that's pretty common."
"It was literally just a wasted 20 minutes, which was a shame," Trump Jr. told host Sean Hannity, but he added: "In retrospect, I probably would have done things a little differently."

- said in off-camera briefing
- of son who lied, posted emails as story came out
- from Trump, who won't release tax returns https://t.co/wq7BMAgKs2
'high quality'? WTF? Sounds like Trump was describing a brand of orange juice!— Sulie (@ThatsJustBogus) July 11, 2017

Don Jr didn't tell him not to. So did Trump himself receive this info? pic.twitter.com/ptFv7dNUAp
It's bizarre that I can quickly go on Facebook and search for Rob Goldstone's posts from day of the meeting at Trump Tower with Don Jr. pic.twitter.com/gjTxzF1iDb— Timothy McBride (@mcbridetd) July 11, 2017
