Donald Trump Jr. has published emails that led to his June 2016 meeting of Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya. Inversion of the jaw is not too strong a term for them.

As I wrote on Monday that the meeting – also with the presence of President Trump’s campaign director Paul Manafort and her husband, Jared Kushner – is potentially a key element in the investigation of a possible collusion between the Russian National Trump campaign .

Trump Jr. had already admitted that he attended the meeting after being informed by email that Veselnitskaya offered to provide information detrimental to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

However, the emails themselves – which they posted on Twitter apparently after learning that the New York Times was about to publish – are far bolder than they would have imagined.

Associated email Rob Goldstone Trump leads the subject line, “Russia-Clinton – Private and Confidential”. It says that the “Crown Prosecutor of Russia” offered to provide the Trump campaign “documents and information to incriminate Hillary and her relations with Russia and would be very helpful to her official father.”

He explains that he is “a part of Russia and the support of his government to M. Trump.” Veselnitskaya emails describe as “Russian government lawyer.” Trump Jr. response to this offer: “If that’s what you say, I especially love late in the summer” – in other words, closer to the date of the election.

It held the meeting and said that Goldstone Kushner and Manafort also participate. What are the steps to start? First, the emails state that the purpose of the meeting was to share potentially damaging information about Clinton.

Trump Jr. and others have said that the meeting refers mainly to sanctions against Russia and the prohibition of adoptions of Russian American children. These topics are mentioned nowhere in the emails.

But the emails can not be more clear that the information comes from the Russian government and “part of Russia and the support of his government to M. Trump.” [E-mail messages Donald Trump Jr. could be more compromising]

Finally, the email addresses any doubts about Trump Jr.’s mood in relation to possible Putin. His ‘I like’ says everything. Any lawyer in the country responsible for the campaign, to this type of offers of assistance of the Russian government, would be shouting in the other direction.

Hopefully he or she will also report to the FBI. Apparently Trump’s team gave him a kiss. During the campaign, Trump’s three oldest and most trusted advisers took the time to meet a “Russian government prosecutor” to see what the Russian government had to offer.

Confused pilot nearly lands on top of four planes at San Francisco’s airport

San Francisco International Airport was almost the site of the tragedy Friday after a flight of Air Canada avoided a road filled with four other aircraft.

Air Canada’s A759 flight comes to Toronto, was allowed to land just before midnight on a runway parallel to the taxiway, where planes are lined up for takeoff, the Washington Post spokesman told the Federal Aviation Administration.

But the pilot inadvertently threw himself into the taxiway, where four planes are waiting to get out, the spokesman said.

The pilot was ordered by an air traffic control tower to begin and find another approach.

Audio reviewed by the Bay-area newspaper Mercury News and Associated Press gave an overview of the confusion during the incident.

The driver asked if she had been allowed to land after observing the 28R lights on a track.

“There is no one in the 28R but,” said the air traffic controller in response.

“Where is this guy? It’s on the taxiway,” said an unidentified voice presuming another driver in the field.

“It looks like it has been lined up for Charlie (Taxi C) there,” said the air traffic controller after the plane redirected.

“Uno Unidas, Air Canada flew directly over us,” a pilot said on the ground.

The Airbus A320 with 135 passengers and five crew members “usually landed without incident,” Air Canada spokesman Peter Fitzpatrick said on Tuesday and added that the airline’s investigation into the incident.

The FAA spokesman said it was unclear how the landing plane came with four aircraft awaiting takeoff and is investigating the incident.

It is unusual for drivers to confuse roadways for runways, although such mistakes often involve smaller planes at small airports, the Associated Press reported.

In December of 2015, an Alaska Airlines flight landed at a traffic lane center at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

And earlier this year, actor Harrison Ford flew his single engine plane down in a passenger plane in southern California.

“If that’s true, what happened is probably close to the biggest disaster in the history of aviation,” said Wednesday Wednesday Wednesday night, the airline’s commander, Ross Aimer, CEO of Experts Aero Consulting.

“If you can imagine that Airbus is facing large bodies of four passengers, loading of fuel and passengers, you can imagine how horrible it could have been,” he said.
