CNN: "The First Son: The Life of Donald Trump, Jr."; the role of the Magnitsky Act??


On Friday, July 14, CNN aired “The First Son: The Life of Donald Trump, Jr.”  At 39, he looks very youthful.

Curiously, CNN does not have a good link on its own show yet.  But here is CNN’s latest on the whole matter of meetings with the Russians during the campaign to dig up dirt on Hillary Clinton, as if they needed to find more.

Donald Trump Jr. was a bit of a troublemaker sometimes in college.  As an adult, he has drawn controversy, or sometimes praise, on liking to “hunt and fish”.  I guess my own admiration goes to the Canadian zoologist who “whispered” an alpha male lion who let the man join the pride to film it. Higher mammals really are much like us in too many ways.



Donald Jr. seems to be in charge of the international businesses, while Eric runs the domestic.  And, no, this is not fake news.



Update: July 16 

Bill Browder, of Capital Hermitage Management, told Fareed Zakaria 9/16 that Putin wanted Trump in office to have a better change of overturning US laws seizing assets of individual Russians guilty of human rights abuses,  This in turn can destabilize Putin's hold on power in Russia. This concerns the Magnitsky Act, explained on Fox here
