Well he gets to attack CNN for doing its job of investigating issues related to Trump. Well, Jr decided the background of the person who made and posted online that trump edited threat video with harm to cnn and perceived liberals reporters is off limits. who the F does that brainless moron think he is. He is just a trust fund kid with no real brain proven by this episode.

per wpo... and second source.

again trump jr giving out fake news claiming the perp was a 15 year old. when it was a middle aged man troll self-admitted right wing troll and he has been outed for all his racist posts.

And when confronted the guy essentially said to CNN, he is sorry for what he had done including all his racist posts because that is not who he really is. But the donald and right wingers did not agree, they claim that what the president tweets is off limits to any investigation. CNN got death threats from other right wing racists for digging into it.

A wrestling GIF posted to Reddit last week by an alt-right troll has become the focal point of mounting tensions between the president, the media, and internet-bred ideological extremism, which have since prompted the trending hashtag #CNNBlackmail and escalating right-wing backlash against CNN.

On Sunday, July 2, in the midst of ongoing clashes between Donald Trump and CNN, the president tweeted out a video in which he symbolically beats up the media outlet in a wrestling match. Since then, the president’s public battle with CNN has escalated into a debate over how to treat online trolls who spread racist and violent hate speech — a debate centered on what many perceive as a veiled threat by CNN to dox the creator of the original GIF behind the president’s tweet, who was a member of Reddit’s alt-right hub r/The_Donald. As a result, many, including Donald Trump Jr., are accusing CNN of bullying the GIF’s creator, while glossing over said creator’s history of hate speech on Reddit before he came under public scrutiny.

CNN is being accused of blackmailing a pro-Trump Reddit user for posting things it didn’t like

It’s a heavy, complex social debate born of a GIF featuring a decade-old wrestling match — and as apt a metaphor as any for the state of political and social debate online in 2017. Here’s a look at how a seemingly harmless meme transformed into a cultural flashpoint.

Trump tweeted a video that originated from a Reddit community notorious for trolling and hate speech

The tweet in question, which was also retweeted from the official @POTUS Twitter account, shows edited footage of a staged 2007 WWE match in which Trump wrestles Vince McMahon. The video, which includes sound, is an edited version of a GIF that was posted to Reddit’s r/The_Donald community on June 28 by a user called HanAssholeSolo.

HanAssholeSolo, who has since deleted his account, claimed to have created the GIF and watermarked it; it’s not clear who edited the GIF into a video with sound, or how the video then found its way onto the president’s Twitter accounts. CNN reported that a senior White House official clarified the president did not source the video from Reddit, but the outlet noted that to date, no other public source for the Trump-versus-CNN footage has been located.

As many journalists quickly uncovered, HanAssholeSolo had a long track record of posting racist and violent speech to Reddit, including racial slurs, threats of violence against Muslims, and anti-Semitism. The tone of HanAssholeSolo’s comments is typical of the rhetoric found on The_Donald, which is one of Reddit’s largest communities and one of the internet’s primary mainstream hubs of support for Trump. It’s also notorious for its right-wing extremism, and has helped propel alt-right memes, multiple right-wing conspiracies, and ongoing distrust of the media into the mainstream conversation surrounding the president.

CNN tracked down the GIF’s creator in real life. Then things got hairy.
After Trump tweeted the GIF, CNN responded to what it deemed to be Trump’s incitement of “violence against reporters,” while Trump supporters, along with the White House, insisted the GIF itself was satirical and nonviolent, and could not be read as a threat toward CNN or the mainstream media at large.

Yet the fact that the GIF apparently originated from The_Donald, and specifically from a member of The_Donald who’s espoused a racist and violent ideology, prompted public debate over whether the president was promoting violence, however obliquely, with his tweet. Trump has previously tried to distance himself from the alt-right, but members of the movement interpreted the tweet as a show of support from the White House for their racist beliefs.

Using details from HanAssholeSolo’s Reddit account, CNN reporter Andrew Kaczynski tracked down the creator of the GIF in real life. However, the outlet made the decision not to reveal the person’s identity after he made an extensive apology on The_Donald in which he claimed he had grown addicted to trolling and that “This has been an extreme wake up call to always consider how others may think or feel about what is being said before clicking the submit button anywhere online”:

I would also like to apologize for the posts made that were racist, bigoted, and anti-semitic. I am in no way this kind of person, I love and accept people of all walks of life and have done so for my entire life. I am not the person that the media portrays me to be in real life, I was trolling and posting things to get a reaction from the subs on reddit and never meant any of the hateful things I said in those posts. I would never support any kind of violence or actions against others simply for what they believe in, their religion, or the lifestyle they choose to have. Nor would I carry out any violence against anyone based upon that or support anyone who did.

.... I do not advocate violence against the press and the meme I posted was in no way advocating that in any way, shape or form

.... So to the members of this community, the site, the media (especially CNN), and anyone offended by the posts, again I apologize. This is one individual that you will not see posting hurtful or hateful things in jest online.
The apology was generally embraced as a sincere one:

In response to the apology, CNN stated that while it was respecting HanAssholeSolo’s role as a private citizen, it “reserves the right to publish his identity” should it become clear that the apology he made was insincere:

CNN is not publishing "HanA**holeSolo's" name because he is a private citizen who has issued an extensive statement of apology, showed his remorse by saying he has taken down all his offending posts, and because he said he is not going to repeat this ugly behavior on social media again. In addition, he said his statement could serve as an example to others not to do the same.

CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.
CNN’s detractors are arguing that its response is tantamount to blackmail
HannAssholeSolo’s apology has since been deleted by The_Donald moderators in apparent support of the idea that the apology was made under duress because CNN threatened to expose his real-life identity. This is a theme that has inflamed members of The_Donald, engulfed right-wing media like Breitbart, Infowars, and the Drudge Report, and prompted the hashtag #CNNBlackmail to trend on Twitter.

Many members of the media and the public have also been quick to decry CNN’s decision, while others have argued that ferreting out an anonymous internet user’s identity is not doxxing so much as investigative online journalism.

However, the threat of outing an anonymous person’s identity has long been seen as a form of harassment and intimidation; in fact, many CNN detractors on 4chan and other alt-right hubs responded to the perceived blackmail with a doxxing of their own, reportedly circulating a list of addresses for Kaczynski and members of his family, as well as for other CNN reporters. And on the (literal) Nazi website Daily Stormer, the notorious internet troll weev has reportedly threatened to expand the doxxing even further:

The debate over CNN’s actions has obscured the original issue
As the debate over CNN’s actions has escalated, HanAssholeSolo’s defenders have been quick to ignore or excuse the history of violent hate speech that ostensibly prompted CNN to try to identify him in the first place.

The most significant excuse in that regard is the emerging rumor that HanAssholeSolo is a 15-year-old boy. The rumor was apparently started by an anonymous 4chan user and has been repeatedly debunked by Kaczynski, who says he spoke with HanAssholeSolo over the phone and that he is an adult. Yet major alt-right influencers, including Donald Trump Jr., have circulated it.

Several members of the media and other public figures have pointed out that “infantilizing” HanAssholeSolo allows his defenders to write off the many racist and violent things he’s previously said online by repeating the refuted claim that he’s just a boy.

Others have attempted to return to the original argument, which circulated before HanAssholeSolo’s violent Reddit comments surfaced, that the GIF was really just a juvenile meme and has nothing to do with the rest of his Reddit history. This thread has led to some serious derailment of the public discussion surrounding Trump’s original tweet, including a joke comparing CNN’s reaction to the wrestling GIF to the Holocaust, made by NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch.

As the outrage and inflammatory rhetoric continues to spiral outward, what’s getting lost in the backlash to CNN’s response is the initial reason for concern: that Donald Trump tweeted a meme with an apparent link to the alt-right. It’s a move that, no matter Trump’s intentions, suggests to members of the alt-right that the president supports their beliefs, and emboldens them to keep spreading those beliefs through the toxic discourse hiding behind seemingly frivolous memes.

this is a 40 year old adult. not a child...

The evidence is plain and simple, trump jr just as a sexual pedophile accepted a meeting with people purporting to represent a government that is the largest adversary and danger to democracy on the face of the planet.

Just like a pedophile accepts and meeting with a proposed underage child. Then the trump people acted on it without alerting the authorities of the united states government and hid the activities that a foreign nation was attacking the democratic election process, the foundation to democracy. And they even said they loved the info if true.

And they were delivered as noted a folder of information and because these are habitual liars to the degree that they committed perjury on the form for access to United States Top Secret information. Again information was delivered to them that they did not notify anyone about at the time and hid the existence of the valuable information swap by a foreign adversary who's intent is to harm the USA. Just like a pedophile, they were guilty the second they attended the meeting and any information was exchanged without notifying the US government.

We know everything in the email was accurate and acted upon in a meeting. Again if a pedophile showed up to meet an underage child it does not matter if the person the police have in the sting really is not underage, it is that the person showed up with what he believed to be an underage child, he acted on it. He did not have to have sex with the underage child.

And we know they allowed top officials of the US government including VP spokes people their father to lie that NO ONE in the trump administration had anything to do with Russians in any way. These statements were made to attack (they were weaponized) democracy the constitution of the free press, the president and right wing were attacking the Constitution with lies while these treasonous members almost all trump top level knew they had. Not one came forward to us or they claim to trump senior of their clandestine activities to subvert the Constitution of the United States.

The russians knew they had met and thus the russians had control of them because the russians could out them at any time for not disclosing these meeting and the trumps attacking the media as claiming no contact ever had been made.

We also know one of the people of the top Russian government connection her representative was in the meeting and he was facing jail time and a minimum of losing 230 million dollars per the Obama administration for illegal money laundering. And we know the reward for helping trump win was no jail time no penalties and only a 6 million dollar fine. Vs obama was going to get a 230 million dollar forfeiture. And fine after that that could have been another 200 million in penalties.


so there was even worse a huge payoff to the russians. No other reason for doing this. Again the guys lawyer was in the meeting, the other person in the meeting a russian career intelligence officer who had been caught using russian hackers to hack into a company's system and he weaponized that information and spread it to damage the company.

Trump campaign paid firm of lawyer representing Trump Jr. before emails were made public

Quote:
President Trump’s campaign committee made a payment to the law firm of an attorney representing Donald Trump Jr. last month, nearly two weeks before it was announced that the same attorney would be representing the president's son in Russia-related probes, according to a campaign finance report filed Saturday.

The committee reported in the filing to the Federal Election Commission that it paid $50,000 to the law firm of attorney Alan Futerfas on June 27. That payment was made 13 days before it was publicly revealed that Futerfas would represent Trump's eldest son in the Russia investigations.

News of the payment came as controversy has swirled in recent days around Trump Jr. and a meeting he held in June 2016 with a Kremlin-connected lawyer who was said to have potentially damaging information about Hillary Clinton, the Democratic opponent of Trump's father in the presidential election.

[Russian American lobbyist was present at Trump Jr.’s meeting with Kremlin-connected lawyer]

The filing also revealed that the campaign committee paid the Trump Corporation — a company being run by Trump Jr. and his brother Eric — more than $89,000 on June 30 for “legal consulting.” While the campaign committee has reimbursed Trump entities for services such as rent, air travel and hotel expenses in the past, it has not reported payments for legal fees, according to Federal Election Commission data.


Quote:
He first said the meeting was about adoptions, then acknowledged that it was set up with someone who might have useful information for his father's campaign. On Tuesday, Trump Jr. publicly released an email exchange showing that he was promised incriminating “high level” information on Clinton as “part of Russia and its government's support for” his father.

Trump Jr. had previously said he held no meetings with Russians while “representing the campaign in any way, shape or form,” and he called the suggestion that Russia was attempting to help his father's presidential campaign “disgusting." U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded that Russia sought to help elect Trump, a determination the president has publicly questioned, and Congress and a special counsel are investigating alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Sen. Blumenthal Says Transcript of Don Jr.’s Trump-Russia Testimony “Will Be Explosive”

Quote:
Two Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday pressed the committee's Republican chairman to provide special counsel Robert Mueller with transcripts of the panel's interviews with key witnesses in its Russia probe, including Donald Trump Jr.

The request, from Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), reflected the partisan tension in a judiciary committee whose investigation has for months been splintered along party lines.



"I think all these transcripts should be released — it's just a question of how and when," Blumenthal said in a recent interview. "And the Donald Trump Jr. interview transcript will be explosive when it sees the light of day."
