The Washington Post reported late Monday that Donald Trump dictated a letter his son read about a meeting with Russian lawyers. And there is one big problem.

Flying home from Germany on July 8 aboard Air Force One, Trump personally dictated a statement in which Trump Jr. said he and the Russian lawyer had “primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children” when they met in June 2016, according to multiple people with knowledge of the deliberations. The statement, issued to the New York Times as it prepared a story, emphasized that the subject of the meeting was “not a campaign issue at the time.”

The claims were later shown to be misleading.

Meanwhile, GOP Congressional leaders continue to do nothing to change the perception that they believe this nincompoop should remain in the White House.
