In a special segment on “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly,” NBC News’ Katy Tur reported on the meeting Donald Trump Jr. and other members of the Trump team had during the campaign with a Russian lawyer promising dirt on Hillary Clinton.
“Donald Junior made a mistake,” former Trump adviser Michael Caputo, said, “and he’d do it entirely differently if he had an opportunity.”
Asked if the meeting should have raised red flags, given that Russian government connections were implied in the emails setting it up, Caputo said “for an experienced campaign operative? Yeah, it should have raised a red flag. For a family member, for a first-time candidate for president of the United States in a whirlwind like we were in? I’m not surprised.”
Caputo added that the meeting merely showed Trump Jr.’s “naiveté (in) his first experience in a political campaign” rather than evidence of collusion between Trump campaign officials and Russia. Read more at The Hill.
