SEAN HANNITY (HOST): The lawyer who Donald Trump, Jr., Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner met with, didn't work for the Russian government at the time of the meeting. And by the way, as Donald Trump Jr. said in an statement, quote, "the woman stated she had information that individuals connected to Russia were funding the Democratic National Committee and supporting Mrs. Clinton. Her statements were vague, ambiguous and made no sense. No details with supporting information was provided or even offered. It quickly became clear that she had no meaningful information." She corroborates that.
So in other words, The meeting was meaningless. It did nothing to produce anything. Where's the collusion? Not to mention, if this lawyer was such a threat and a Russian agent or a spy, why the Obama Administration let her into this country in 2016? As John Solomon and Sara Carter reported over the weekend, this lawyer was denied a Visa but eventually was allowed into the country, by the way, under President Obama.
And as President Trump's legal team pointed out, they think that this meeting could have been a setup made to give the appearance of Russian collusion and the person responsible for orchestrating all of this -- pay attention you are not going to hear this in the mainstream media -- is connected to Fusion GPS. That is the OP research firm that produced the fake Christopher Steele dossier. Remember the British spy, on Donald Trump. And by the way, as the New York Post has reported, Fusion GPS has several ties to the Democrats, including Clinton allies and even Planned Parenthood. And according to the Washington Times, Christopher Steele said in a court filing that that dossier was never supposed to be made public and that BuzzFeed should never have published it.
