Leaky, Leaky

Nearly three days after The New York Times first reported that his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., met with a Russian lawyer with ties to the Russian government, President Donald Trump has yet to unleash a single tweet to defend his son.

That silence comes as Trump's legal team and White House aides have advised the President not to tweet about the reports, two sources -- an administration official and a person familiar with the discussions -- told CNN.


Trump's attorneys and advisers have often urged him not to tweet about reports concerning the federal investigation into contacts between Trump campaign associates and Russia, a probe that has since widened to look at whether Trump interfered with that investigation by firing FBI Director James Comey.

Trump has rarely heeded that advice in the past -- taking to his favorite social medium to push back on reports about his campaign associates and Moscow and the testimony of his former FBI director, for instance.

If it's true that Trump is actually following somebody else's advice, he must be really scared. Or, he's just counting on Junior falling on the sword in order to keep himself in the White House.

Do you think they have family meetings (and by family I mean mafia-type) about who's going to be thrown to the wolves?  I have a feeling Jared is playing for his own skin.

 ...but hey, do what you want...you will anyway.
