During an interview on Sunday, Democrat Rep. Jerry Nadler voiced his outrage that special counsel Robert Mueller and his investigation team did not charge Donald Trump Junior for the now-infamous meeting in Trump Tower.
“I do not understand why he didn’t charge Don Jr. and others,” said Nadler, who alleged members of the Trump campaign “entered into a meeting of the minds to attend a meeting to get stolen material on Hillary. They went to the meeting. That’s conspiracy right there.”
Nadler’s reaction to the recently-released Mueller report, which vindicated the president and his campaign of collusion and obstruction allegations, echoed sentiments of his Democrat colleagues.

Conservatives, however, quickly took to social media to refute Nadler’s assertions, with many pointing out that the meeting, itself, has been questioned as a possible “set up” designed to ensnare members of the Trump campaign.
If that is the standard why wasn’t Hillary charged .. double standard

This guy is clueless. He wanted Junior charged for attending a meeting?

Hillary Clinton funded FusionGPS. They paid the Russian lawyer to arrange the meeting. The Russian lawyer met with FusionGPS before & after the meeting. Lets charge FusionGPS & Clinton for colluding with Russians. THAT can be proven. #FactsMatter

Shouldnt @RepJerryNadler be more concerned with DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign paying Russian agents thru a cutout for “dirt” on Pres Trump and sending to be weaponized by FBI DOJ?
