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.

Jason Whitlock: Here’s why black men & black Americans relate to Donald Trump

Black celebrities like Kanye West & Ice Cube aren't alone. In fact, sportswriter Jason Whitlock says it shouldn't be a surprise that more and more black men are supporting Donald Trump. He says that unlike President Obama, Trump actually "has a record" of helping black Americans. And, because he's an alpha male, Whitlock says the president's fearlessness is something black men relate to. Whitlock explains why Trump nearly convinced him to register to vote, and he describes how his long-time Democratic mother reacted when she experienced a softer side to the president.

Megyn Kelly: Media coverage of President Trump is ‘DISGUSTING’

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:

Bill O’Reilly: 'Be cautioned' if you think Hunter Biden story is enough to nail Joe

Bill O'Reilly is back! He joins Glenn to discuss the second — and last — presidential debate of the campaign season and he comments on whether or not Trump did enough to convince the average, uninformed voter of Joe's blatant corruption overseas. O'Reilly explains the origin of the Democrat narrative on Russian interference, why moderator Kristen Welker tried to stay off the Ukraine topic, and whether or not he believes Joe will be taken down by stories that mostly center on his son, Hunter.
