  • Trump dictated statement for son on Russian Federation meeting

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Tuesday in an on-camera briefing, "there's no inaccuracy in the statement".

On July 8, Trump Jr. responded to a New York Times story about the meeting by explaining that those in attendance "primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children" and that before the encounter, he was not aware of the identity of the person he would be meeting.

Mr Trump Jr later acknowledged he had agreed to meet after being told Kremlin-linked information about Mrs Clinton would be offered during the talks. Mr Trump Jr، his brother-in-law Jared Kushner and then campaign chairman Paul Manafort met Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya at Trump Tower in NY in June 2016.

"The Crown prosecutor of Russian Federation ... offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russian Federation and would be very useful to your father", said the June 3, 2016, email to Mr Trump Jr from publicist Rob Goldstone.

None of this mattered to the newly invested President Trump, who ratified Sessions as Attorney General, asserting that he was "a legal mind of world reputation" and that "he was widely admired by law academics and, virtually, by anyone who knows him ". "Congress could lawfully conclude that President Trump's misleading statement was an effort to delay, impede and obstruct the special prosecutor's investigation of Russian electoral interference", added Peterson, who has served as a special advisor in the Office of the Director at the United States Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

"Yeah, it bothers me a lot", Graham said.

"The president was not aware of and did not attend the meeting", Mark Corallo, who was handling press for all things Russia-related, said at the time.

Trump attorney Jay Sekulow denied the Post's account and attacked it.

SEKULOW: Yeah, I know.

Jay Sekulow, one of the elder Trump's lawyers, told the newspaper that "apart from being of no effect, the characterizations are misinformed, inaccurate, and not pertinent".

The president's personal lawyers might want to tell him that's not how it works - and the president might want to listen.

The Senate, House of Representatives and a special counsel are all investigating U.S. intelligence findings that Moscow interfered in the U.S. presidential election in an alleged attempt to undermine Mrs Clinton - a claim denied by the Kremlin.

This is the central question raised by the Post's new report. Sekulow speculated that Trump Jr. had released the statement in consultation with his own lawyers.

Local law enforcement leaders agree the statement puts officers in a bad light and say roughing up suspects can't and won't be tolerated.

One email from Mr. Goldstone states that the "Crown prosecutor of Russia" had met with a previous business partner of the elder Mr. Trump and "offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russian Federation and would be very useful to your father".

Trump has already come under criticism for steps he has taken to challenge and undercut the Russian Federation probe.
