Now it’s time for Donald Trump to worry about emails.
Back in 2016, Donald Trump Jr., the president’s son, met with a Russian lawyer with ties to the Kremlin.
On Monday, the New York Times reported that the man who brokered the meeting, Rob Goldstone, stated in an email to Trump Jr. that the lawyer had information that could hurt the Hillary Clinton campaign and explicitly stated that the information came from the Russian government, who was trying to help Trump win the election.
Why is this bad for Donald Trump? Well, it’s a sign that members of his campaign welcomed support from Russia. (Jared Kushner and Paul J. Manafort, then the chairman of the Trump campaign, also attended the meeting.)
As everyone tried to process the report Monday night, Twitter did what it does best: make jokes.

Looks like Junior has some explaining to do.
