Quora question: Why would Donald Trump’s son, son-in-law and then-campaign chairman meet with a Russian lawyer shortly after Trump won the Republican nomination?

My response:   According to a news item in the New York Times, Donald Trump Jr., when confronted by a Times reporter, responded by saying the meeting with the Russian lawyer was primarily about an adoption program. (1)


Would that be adoption of a rule requiring the president and staff—formal or otherwise—whereupon a convenient lapse of memory occurs, said individual must spend an evening listening to the various screeches and noises that comprise a concert by Yoko Ono?

Would that be the adoption of rules restricting the White House Ethics Chief to a basement office; a staff of one part-time employee, currently on summer vacation; a rotary-dial payphone; and a choice of colors should he or she wish to paint their walls before climbing them?

Would that be the adoption of Russian children whose parents had previously worked for the KGB?

Would that be the adoption of a measure to allow men of girth to wear women’s maternity pants?

Inquiring minds want to know.
