Congressmen Rip Donald Trump Jr. With Gigantic Time Magazine Cover On House Floor

They prove that the Trump campaign was not only aware of the Russian government’s efforts to meddle in our elections, they were enthusiastic about accepting Russian support

Two Democratic congressmen used Time magazine’s latest cover to make a political point about the Donald Trump Jr.-Russia affair on Friday.

Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.) and Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) brought onto the House floor an enormous print-out of the publication’s most recent front page, on which the words “Red Handed” are superimposed over a picture of President Donald Trump’s eldest son.

“Don. Jr.’s emails are a smoking gun,” said Gallego.

The pair then read into the Congressional record the email exchange between Trump Jr. and music publicist Rob Goldstone, about meeting a Russian lawyer during the 2016 election campaign to obtain dirt garnered by the Russian government on his father’s Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.
