Steve Bannon, former top adviser to Donald J. Trump, claims a meeting in 2016 between a Russian lawyer and Donald Jr, Trump's eldest son, was treasonous. The meeting took place in 2016 at Trump Tower in New York. It was claimed that the meeting was on potential dirt on Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump's opponent at the time. Steve Bannon now calls this meeting treasonous.
This claim comes in a book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House by Michael Wolff. In an interview, Bannon reveals his thoughts on the meeting saying quote "The three senior guys in the campaign thought it was a good idea to meet with a foreign government inside Trump Tower in the conference room on the 25th floor -- with no lawyers. They didn't have any lawyers". In the interview, Steve Bannon also claims that that The Robert Muller investigation centers on money laundering saying quote “they're sitting on a beach trying to stop a category five hurricane”. What does this mean for Trump? Only time will tell.
