Donald Trump helped author son's misleading Russian Federation statement

Donald Trump helped author son's misleading Russian Federation statement”

White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders told a briefing that Trump "certainly didn't dictate [the statement], but ... he weighed in, offered a suggestion, like any father would do".

Donald Trump, who claimed, against all evidence Monday that there is "no chaos in the White House", seeks to give a new breath of life to his body after a week nightmare: setback policies, notably on health reform, factionalism, statements insulting and rude... The younger Trump also called on Paul Manafort, the overall manager of candidate Trump's campaign at the time, and Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and a close adviser, to join the meeting in NY with Veselnitskaya and her Russian associates.

The meeting has caught the attention of Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, who sent a request to White House officials to preserve any documents relating to the 2016 meeting.

"I wasn't involved in the statement drafting at all, nor was the President".

"This was. unnecessary one of the advisers told the Post". Sekulow speculated that Trump Jr. had released the statement in consultation with his own lawyers. He ultimately admitted that he met with attorney Natalia Veselnitskay because he thought she had damaging information about Hillary Clinton.

The Post said advisers worry that the extent of Trump's direct involvement in his son's response could put the president - already under fire for other efforts to undermine the Russian Federation probe - and key advisers in legal jeopardy.

Sanders lastly emphasized the claim that President Trump is the one who should really be considered tough on Russian Federation.

The president's advisers wanted to release a statement that was truthful so there was no chance it was repudiated later.

That initial statement in June said Trump Jr. and the lawyer mostly discussed a program concerning the adoption of Russian children. Sekulow told ABC a week earlier that Trump Sr.

The Times also reported on July 11 that the president had signed off on his son's statement.

Watch for times when the White House declines to repeat the claims of Trump's personal legal team.

"He doesn't think he's in any legal jeopardy, so he really views this as a political problem he is going to solve by himself".

Trump made the comments last week while addressing police officials in Long Island, New York.

RUCKER: Has President Trump had any communication with his son, Donald Trump Jr., over the last several days?

"The discussions among the president's advisers consumed much of the day, and they continued as they prepared to board Air Force One that evening for the flight home".
