President's Tweet On Trump Tower Meeting

Adjust Comment Print

Calling the reported concerns a "complete fabrication", the President acknowledged that the meeting was accepted on the premise that Trump Jr. would get dirt on Hillary Clinton.

As he has in the past, Mr Trump insisted in a tweet that he did not know at the time about the meeting between his son Donald Jr and Natalia Veselnitskaya, a lawyer with links to the Kremlin.

"It's nice that even on vacation the president finds time to incrimi-tweet his son - his 'wonderful son, ' I should say", the late-night host joked.

President Trump attorney Jay Sekulow on Sunday blamed "bad information" for erroneously denying that the president had a role in drafting his campaign's response to a key June 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower.

The Trump team has argued that Mr Trump Jr ultimately did not receive any damaging information about Mrs Clinton at the meeting.

Trump Jr. has shifted his explanations for his Russian meeting.

However, he subsequently admitted he had agreed to the meeting after being told he would be offered information that would prove detrimental to Mrs Clinton.

A day later, the paper reported that Trump Jr. was promised damaging information about Clinton at the meeting.

Trump was responding to a Washington Post report this weekend that although he does not think his eldest son intentionally broke the law, he is anxious that Trump Jr. may have unintentionally stumbled into legal jeopardy and is embroiled in Mueller's investigation largely because of his connection to the president.

USA media then reported that the U.S. president had been involved in the initial statement his son issued on the meeting. Trump has repeatedly denied collusion with Russian Federation or any other wrongdoing.

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon have suggested that Trump, at a minimum, knew of the meeting soon after it took place.

CHANG: OK, so we know this meeting is part of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

All jokes aside, Giuliani was actually denying that he has been sweating bullets over Trump's tweets, despite recent reports that the president should be more concerned about the things he tweets. Of course a year ago, Trump said the meeting was primarily to discuss the adoption of Russian children. "Trump thinks he's saying too much", said a Republican close to the White House.

The President reportedly has been advised to knock off the tweeting about the meeting with the Russians. The Times wants to keep up its Russia-related anti-Trump drumbeat.

When news of the meeting first surfaced previous year, Trump Jr said in a statement that he and Veselnitskaya had mostly discussed a suspended programme for Americans to adopt Russian children., although he has since admitted that he knew he would be offered "dirt" on Clinton.

It is, however, against the law for United States campaigns to receive donations or items of value from foreigners. So where is the truth, and why is this something President Trump would even want to focus on right now?

"I think from a practical standpoint, most people would have taken that meeting".

Indeed, that's been the Trump team's story. They can also cause War!' "They are very unsafe & sick!" And at a trio of rallies, he escalated his already vitriolic rhetoric toward the media, savaging the press for unflattering coverage and, he feels, bias.
