If Donald Trump Jr.'s disclosure of explosive emails have any consequences for former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort – who was included in the email chain and attended a subsequent meeting with a Russian lawyer – he has reportedly got a defense.

The emails are potentially damaging because as a senior member of the campaign, he was aware of circumstances leading up to the meeting – including how it was framed as government-acquired information that would be used to help the Trump campaign, Law Newz reported.

But Politico reported Manafort apparently did not know what the meeting was all about – because he did not read Trump Jr.'s email chain all the way to the bottom.

"A source close to Manafort told Politico on Tuesday that the campaign manager hadn't read all the way to the bottom of the email exchanges on his phone, and that he didn't even know who he was meeting with when he attended the 20- to 30-minute session," Politico reported.

Law Newz reported "in internet-speak, that's the equivalent of 'TL;DR,' or, 'too long; didn't read,' which people say in response to messages or articles sent to them that they don't care to spend time on."
