Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA), Hillary Clinton’s running mate in the 2016 election, told reporters on Tuesday that President Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., may have committed “treason” by meeting with a Kremlin-connected lawyer.
“We are beyond obstruction of justice. This is moving into perjury, false statements and even potentially treason,” Kaine said.
