We know that Don Jr. meet with a Russian-linked lawyer (who we also now know was barely a lawyer, and was probably dangled by Putin to see if Trump’s team would bite). We assume based ON EVERYTHING that Trump also knew about that meeting, which took place in Trump Tower while Donald Trump was there a floor below him. Twitter, being the sleuths they are, think they may have found a clue providing compelling circumstantial evidence that Trump did, indeed, know about that meeting (and that more was said at that meeting than we have been led to believe).
Here it is, in six tweets:
Recreating June 9: A very consequential day in the 2016 campaign - HRC celebrated, as Trump Jr. met w/ Veselnitskaya https://t.co/VEeBFmn0EK— Dan Merica (@danmericaCNN) July 12, 2017
Actually it's more than that. In that 4:40 PM 6/9/16 tweet Trump switched to the number "33,000 deleted emails" for the first time. https://t.co/JpYdnql4ez— Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) July 12, 2017

Trump NEVER mentioned HRC's 33,000 emails before Jun 9, 2016. After, he mentioned almost daily.
Two weeks later:
Pretty compelling. If Trump ever actually spoke to the media, maybe they could ask him about where he got the 33,000 number, and why he started using that number minutes after the meeting.
