The Smoking Email: Consequences of This Story Could Be Astronomical

The simmering story about Donald Trump, Jr. and his meeting with a Kremlin-connected attorney came to a boil last night, turning a he-said-she-said story into something with teeth. A report now says there is an email from this agent to Trump Jr. saying the Russian government wanted to share information about Hillary Clinton to help aid his father's campaign --- which goes a long way toward proving collusion.

There is reason to pause, however. While both The New York Times and CNN are confirming the contents of the email, the email itself has yet to be produced. Tuesday on radio, Glenn made sure to underscore how important that fact is.

"This is so critical that I don't think we take anybody's word. We don't assume this email is real, exists, or even says this because I believe the consequences of this email are astronomical. So when they produce the email, then we can have the conversation about what the ramifications are," Glenn said.

The fact that Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort denied being in the meeting up until three weeks ago --- and how their explanation keeps morphing --- is cause for concern. All three were involved and none had declared this meeting with a foreign national on their security clearances, which would have been a felony had they not amended their forms three weeks ago.

Editor's Note: This story has some updated information confirming the existence of the email. There is a new story up on glennbeck.com with the emerging details.

GLENN:  All right.  Here's what you need to know, the new information from yesterday.  We spent very little time on this yesterday because what we had was a he said/she said.  We had a Russian operative or at least a foreign national from Russia that we now know is deeply connected to the Kremlin and Putin.  We -- we knew that this foreign national met with Donald Trump Jr., Kushner, and also Manafort.  We know that Manafort has dealings with Russia, and that's not good.  And he's already left the service.

We also knew yesterday that the story kept changing with the Trump side about this meeting.  And, in fact, it was a felony had they not reported this.  But for some apparent reason, a few weeks ago, they all put this and changed their application for top secret security clearance.  They suddenly remembered this and put it on to their top security clearance.

Had this come out without them changing it a few weeks ago, well, until we learned about Hillary Clinton, I would have assumed jail time.  But I'm not convinced that people except people like you actually go to jail in this country anymore.

That's what we knew yesterday.  But then there was an email that was released or at least the information in the email, CNN and the New York Times have both confirmed this in the way they did about the Comey memos, that several people have had eyes on it.  And we're taking their word that that's what it said.

This is so critical, that I don't think we take anybody's word.  We don't -- we don't assume that this email is real, exists, or even says this, because I believe the consequences of this email are as astronomical.  So when they produce the email, then we can have the talk about what the ramifications are.

What I want to talk to you about is:  If the facts are as they appear to be -- and they're beginning to be really quite significant.  Meeting on the same day that after this meeting happened where they said they had nothing, they went into a meeting to write the first speech about how a foreign government has a file on blackmail for Hillary Clinton.  Was that a coincidence?

That the first time that Donald Trump tweets about the 33,000 missing emails is also that same day, later that night.  That they write that speech, and he announces the next day that he's going to give the speech on how there's a blackmail file from a foreign government.  Those are pretty damning, just in and of themselves.  Then you have other things that also build up that are significant.

But to me, the most significant is the denial by all three of them, that this meeting even happened until a few weeks ago.

Here's what the email apparently said:  In the email, it was expressed that the material was part of a Russian government effort to aid Donald Trump Jr.'s father's candidacy, according to three people with knowledge of the email.

'They believe their job is to REMAKE your child': WSJ writer warns public schools may be LOST to woke trans activism

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

Is California ‘PURPOSEFULLY’ destroying this small business?

It seems like some politicians are purposefully trying to destroy the lives and dreams of certain Americans, specifically small business owners. Dave Foldes spoke to Glenn over six months ago after THIS audience raised thousands of dollars for his restaurant that refused to close: Cronies Sports Grill. Now, despite making progress in his administrative battle against LA, the city of Agoura Hills, California is coming for Cronies instead. And the reasoning is INSANE. But Foldes isn't giving up, and neither are his supporters. It's the ultimate David vs. Goliath showdown.

Trans Activism Will End Your Parental Rights | Abigail Shrier | Ep 110

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it is incredibly dangerous. Just ask Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier. Her book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — just like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, Shrier argues it could end your parental rights for good. She is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy number one to the activists. Recently, the American Booksellers Association even called sending her book to others "a serious, violent incident." Abigail joins Glenn to lay out just how slippery this slope has proven to be and what we — conservatives and liberals — must do to protect our children.

DEADLY Negligence: Exposing the REAL Origins & Coverup of the COVID-19 Pandemic

Who were the people and groups involved with coronavirus research, and what really went down before and after the pandemic began? On "Glenn TV" this week, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to outline a tale of negligence and then, coverup. The elites of the world - the people calling themselves experts - trusted the Chinese Communist Party with one of the most dangerous weapons we can imagine on this planet--a virus.

Glenn reveals who was involved in a definitive timeline, and argues: If proof of a lab leak does come out, the worlds needs to know EVERYONE that was involved. We must expose the coverup and attempt to control the narrative of the pandemic origins. Everyone from Big Tech, the media, the Chinese and even our own government have been involved. What lies behind the coverup could reveal the dirty secret that, in order to cut corners, the academic elites and government entrusted Communist China with a civilization-killing virus.
