Keith Olbermann Digs up Old Trump Tweet That May Confirm He Knew Don Jr. Met with Russian Lawyer

Keith Olbermann began Monday with a bombshell revelation by digging up President Donald Trump’s first tweet after former campaign chair Paul Manafort and son Donald Trump Jr. met with the Russian lawyer.


According to the New York Times report, Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya had a previously undisclosed meeting at Trump Tower with campaign officials on June 9, 2016. The meeting was not disclosed despite federal requirements that they do so.

The first tweet Trump sent after the meeting between Manafort, Don Jr. and Veselnitskaya happened to also be the first time Trump mentioned former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s “missing 33,000 emails.”

Judicial Watch released the 750-page deposition from a top Clinton aide that Thursday in 2016 that said she could not confirm whether emails were deleted. That day was also the day President Barack Obama endorsed Clinton for the General Election. Trump notoriously tweeted earlier that day about the endorsement saying no one wants four more years of Obama. Clinton told Trump to delete his account.

June 9, 2016 was also the first time Reince Priebus was seen walking into Trump Tower following Trump claiming the Republican Party nomination.
