There might be a winter chill in the air, but President Trump and his family are sweating like it’s Phoenix in July. The White House, perpetually beset by chaos and inner turmoil, had been uncomfortably awaiting Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s document outlining how Paul Manafort violated his cooperation agreement by lying to prosecutors. But there’s an even greater sense of despair for Donald Trump Jr, who reportedly decided to sneak off to Canada for a little “hunting” while he remains hunted here in the United States.
Don Jr’s legal woes were the focus of a recent holiday gathering at the St. Regis in Washington to celebrate the engagement of former campaign staffer and CNN contributor David Urban. The attendees included Dina Powell, Ivanka Trump, Anthony Scaramucci, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and Tony Sayegh, a Republican strategist whom Trump appointed assistant secretary of the Treasury.
“It was a garrulous holiday party,” one partygoer said, “but people were worried about Mueller. It’s not going anywhere.” As it pertains to Donald Trump Jr, “Don is very worried,” the attendee said.
Things look so bleak for Don Jr that he decided to lay low in Canada for a little hunting trip.
“They think the bomb’s coming this week, and he doesn’t want to be anywhere near a microphone if the bomb drops,” the source said, according to Vanity Fair.
But it’s not just Don Jr’s potential lying to Congress that has many worried, but rather his role as an executive at the Trump Organization. Moreover, Former Trump fixer Michael Cohen’s cooperation with the New York State Attorney General on matters relating to the Trump Organization finances is of particular concern.
In short, Christmas might look a little different at Mar-a-Lago this year.
