Gaslighting at its best.

Donald Trump Jr. said he is unconcerned about anything he did surrounding a June 2016 Trump Tower meeting that special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating, but that he could see Mueller’s team fabricating something to charge him.
Trump Jr. has acknowledged that he took part in the New York meeting, in which a Russian attorney and other nationals promised damaging information on Trump’s election opponent, Hillary Clinton. A focus of Mueller’s probe has been that meeting and a subsequent misleading statement reportedly dictated by President Donald Trump, but he has not filed charges against any individuals.
“I know that I’m not worried about anything I actually did,” Trump Jr. told USA Today in a report published Wednesday. “That doesn’t mean they don’t totally fabricate all of this stuff at this point.”
Trump Jr. made a similar suggestion when asked on ABC’s Good Morning America in September if he feared any legal exposure in Mueller’s probe.
“I’m not, because I know what I did, and I’m not worried about any of that,” the president’s eldest son said. “That doesn’t mean they won’t try to create something. I mean, we’ve seen that happen with everything. But, again, I’m not.”
Of course, this is pure bullshit as Mueller is known as a boy scout who always plays by the book and would never even consider falsifying evidence.
And why would he? After all, there is already plenty of evidence publicly available to suggest that Junior was engaged in collusion, and I have every confidence that Mueller has much more at his disposal.
In my opinion, this is a prelude of what is to come if Mueller hands in his report and it targets Trump Jr. with some serious allegations.
They are laying a foundation for saying that it is all “fake news” and suggesting that the investigators are all Obama Administration holdovers determined to destroy Donald Trump, his family, and his presidency.
