Wolf Blitzer doesn’t seem to care what Rep. Ted Yoho says. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“Republican Rep. Ted Yoho said it was appropriate for President Donald Trump’s son to meet with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign — and added that he probably would have taken the meeting under the same circumstances.

“Do I think it’s appropriate? I think I probably would have done the same thing,” the Florida Freedom Caucus member said on “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer.” “I mean, it’s opposition research and, you know, anybody that’s been in an election — you’re always looking to get the upper hand.”
Donald Trump Jr. acknowledged in a statement Sunday that he met with a Russian lawyer who he had been told “might have information helpful to the campaign.” Trump Jr. issued the statement in response to The New York Times’ reporting that he “was promised damaging information about Hillary Clinton” before agreeing to meet with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.”*
