It turns out that Trump, Jr.’s calls to a blocked number were to family friends and not to Trump. That still leaves lots of questions:
- Did Trump know about the meeting? He says he didn’t but he lies all the time. If he got the calls, this would have proven he knew but it still doesn’t put him in the clear.
- Why did they lie about the meeting? Trump prepared a false statement saying it was about adoptions.
- If the calls were to business associates, why didn’t Trump, Jr. just provide that information?
