New York Rep. Jerry Nadler, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, falsely claimed in an interview on Sunday that Donald Trump Jr. was offered stolen information in the infamous meeting at Trump Tower in June 2016.
“Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd failed to correct Nadler when he made the inaccurate statement.
“I do not understand why he didn’t charge Don Jr., and others in that famous meetings with criminal conspiracy,” Nadler said of special counsel Robert Mueller in the interview.
“They entered into a meeting of the minds to attend a meeting, to get stolen material on Hillary. They went to the meeting. That’s conspiracy, right there,” he added.
Despite that claim, Trump Jr. was not offered stolen material before accepting the June 9, 2016 meeting.
