The building project did not go forward.

Revelations about Donald Trump Jr.'s emails and meeting with a Russian lawyer should be extremely alarming to patriotic Americans ("Trump Jr.'s emails add fuel to fire in investigation", July 12 World-Herald).

But one important issue is that Trump Jr. was did not immediately report that he met with the lawyer.

"Anything that you're trying to keep secret or wouldn't want out so [someone] could threaten you with blackmail, that's basically what this is all about", he continued. On Tuesday, Yahoo News reported the purpose of Ivanka Trump's trip was to scout locations for a prospective tower in Moscow.

Kushner is sure to face questions about his omissions soon, from any number of questioners.

The Republican claimed his Democratic adversary would have weakened America's military and driven up energy prices - two things he says the Kremlin would have welcomed.
