Despite Trump Claiming He Was Unaware Of Son’s Meeting With Russians, He Paid Son’s Lawyer 11 Days Before NYT Story Broke

Racist President Trump’s reelection campaign paid the law firm representing Donald Trump Jr. 11 days before the New York Times reported the eldest Trump son arranged a June 2016 secret meeting with Russians at Trump Tower, with connections to the Kremlin, according to a new Federal Election Commission (FEC) filing.

Records filed Saturday show Donald Trump for President, Inc. , paid the the Law Offices of Alan S. Futerfas $50,000 for “legal consulting” on June 27. On July 8, the Times reported that Trump Jr. arranged the meeting.


The timing of the payment raises additional questions about who in Trump universe was aware of Trump Jr.’s interactions with the Russians, and when they learned of the meeting.

Representatives from the Trump campaign, the Trump Organization and Futerfas did not immediately respond to questions about the payment.


The Trump Organization on Monday confirmed Trump Jr. had hired Futerfas, an attorney with a background in white collar criminal defense. On Tuesday, Trump Jr. released emails documenting interactions between himself and publicist Rob Goldstone, who offered to connect him with a Russian lawyer who purported to have information that would “incriminate” Hillary Clinton as “part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.” Trump Jr. responded, “if it’s what you say I love it.”
