Trump admits son met with Russian to get information on Hilary

Trump admits son met with Russian to get information on Hilary”

And Trump once again defended the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting in which his son met with a Kremlin-connected lawyer saying it was "totally legal" and that he didn't know about it.

Trump tweeted: "Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower. I did not know about it!"

President Donald Trump has been urged to stop tweeting about the 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Trump's top advisers and several Russians, a source familiar with discussions tells CNN.

The Trump administration maintains they believed the objective of the meeting was to get intelligence on Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, however, they have since described the meeting as a "waste of time".

A letter from President Trump's legal team to Special Counsel Robert Mueller reveals the president dictated the statement on the Trump Tower meeting; chief White House correspondent John Roberts reports.

Rep. Adam Schiff, California Democrat, responded to the president's tweet Sunday himself via Twitter, saying Russians offered damaging information on Mrs. Clinton and his campaign accepted their help.

Ingraham asked Don Jr. about that discrepancy when he called into her show on Monday, and she even aired a few clips of Trump and various officials confidently claiming the meeting was about adoptions.

The president's attorneys at first denied Trump's involvement in drafting the response to the Times, but months later, in a letter meant to explain why Mueller should not interview Trump, they agreed that the president had, in fact, been the author of the statement.

"I wasn't involved in the statement drafting at all, nor was the President", Sekulow said on July 12, 2017.

His comments come after the president dismissed news reports Sunday that he's anxious about legal trouble for his son related to the special counsel's investigation, and renewed his attacks on the media.

CNN reported last month that Michael Cohen, the president's long-time personal lawyer and self-described "fixer" was willing to tell Mueller that Trump did know about the meeting in advance.

In a tweet early Sunday morning, Trump said the meeting was arranged "to get information on an opponent", and is "totally legal".

On Sunday, Trump completely contradicted past accounts of the meeting.

In a January 29, 2018, memo to Mueller, Trump attorneys John Dowd and Sekulow contradicted Sanders by saying Trump did dictate Trump Jr.'s statement. They purposely cause great division & distrust. "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.

Sekulow also downplayed comments made by the president's other attorney, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who recently said that collusion is not a crime, calling them "rather unremarkable".
