Dow Tanks Over 100 Points After Don Jr. Releases Russia Emails

The Dow Jones Industrial Average tanked immediately after President Donald Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., released his emails with a Russian attorney who promised to provide damaging information about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Trump Jr. tweeted screenshots of his emails with Rob Goldstone, a former British tabloid reporter who arranged the meeting with Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya at 11 a.m. Monday morning and the markets reacted almost simultaneously, dropping over 100 points in a matter of minutes.

The benchmark index opened for trading Monday at over 21,410 points. The Dow sits at 21,321.65 as of 11:42 a.m. Monday.

The S&P 500 and the NASDAQ also took a marginal dip after the emails surfaced, but both appear to making a recovery on those losses.
