GREGG JARRETT: It's a nothing burger, and yet CNN right now, as I look up on the screen, is calling it a bombshell. You know, every time Trump sneezes, they call it a bombshell.

Look, even if Donald Trump Jr. had acted on information provided by the Russian lawyer, that still doesn't constitute a crime.

Even conspiring to subvert the government doesn't rise to the level of treason.

You know, under our Constitution, Americans are permitted to speak against the government, undermine political opponents, support harmful policies, even place the interests of another nation ahead of those of the U.S.

Now, none of those things are happening here. Having a meeting with a Russian official is not a crime.
