There are criminals, there stupid criminals, and then there are Donald Trump Jr. and his partner in crime Rob Goldstone. It was Goldstone who set up the meeting between Trump Junior and a Russian government representative, and who was stupid enough to send an email to Junior confirming that the meeting would be treasonous. But on the day of the meeting, Goldstone one-upped himself by checking in at Trump Tower on Facebook. No, really.
Josh Schwerin, the Communications Director for Priorities USA, managed to find Rob Goldstone’s Facebook post from June 9th, 2016, the day of the meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and the Kremlin representative. Here’s what it looks like:

And because Rob Goldstone doesn’t look guilty enough as it is, it’s also been revealed that he was in Moscow just before and just after his meeting with Donald Trump Jr. and the Kremlin:
