Trump Changed His Story Again About His Son's Trump Tower Russia Meeting

Putin Trump Melania

She also posited that the president's claim on Twitter that he was not aware of the Trump Tower meeting could be inessential to Mueller's probe in the light of the "false" statement from previous year that claimed the meeting's objective was to discuss the adoption of Russian children.

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

In light of all the commotion President Donald Trump has caused with his latest tweet storms, a new report claims that the president's advisers are imploring him to stop tweeting about his son's 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer.

He also said President Trump is pushing a "muddled message" on the issue of Russian interference and collusion, saying, "The president can't distinguish between any allegations of conspiracy against his campaign and the broader problem of Russia continued to interfere in our elections".

Email released by Donald Jr. himself showed he had been keen on the meeting because his father's campaign was purportedly being offered potentially damaging information on Clinton.

President Donald Trump is renewing his attacks on two of his favorite targets: the special counsel Russian Federation probe and the news media.

At the time, in July 2017, Trump offered a similar comment to the one he made on Sunday, dismissing the meeting with a Russian lawyer promising dirt on his political opponent as no big deal.

"You then misled the country about the goal of the Trump Tower meeting when it became public". Sekulow said. "The question is, what law, statute or rule or regulation has been violated?"

"This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics - and it went nowhere", Trump tweeted.

"Well the president, as we know, is not an attorney", Christie said Sunday. "I did not 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".

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

Trump has recently come under fire for his own role in the 2016 meeting, as former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen claimed that the president knew about the meeting in advance - something Trump has previously denied.

Sekulow ― whose career has made him an expert on school voucher and religious freedom cases, not criminal law - claimed that meeting with Russians tied to their country's government with the goal of getting assistance to win a US election was not illegal. In it, lawyers stated that Trump had dictated the statement written aboard Air Force One as it flew back from the G-20 summit in Germany. But I don't like the war declaration because it will lead to something that none of us really want, ' he said.
