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

  • Trump Admits His Campaign Sought Dirt On Clinton From Russians At Trump Tower Meeting

In June 2016, Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and campaign chairman Paul Manafort met with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.

Last night various U.S. outlets, including the Washington Post, CNN and AP, reported that Trump was anxious his son could be in legal trouble over the meeting.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is examining whether Trump campaign members coordinated with Russian Federation to sway the White House race in his favour. Trump seems to be arguing against his own point by assuring us that he had nothing to do with this meeting, which - oh, by the way - was totally on the up-and-up.

Trump also denied reports in the Washington Post and CNN that he was concerned his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., could be in legal trouble because of the meeting with the Russians, including a lawyer with Kremlin ties.

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

Dead fish, red tide, plague Florida tourists, beaches
With red tide, the water might be a little discolored with a hint of red or brown but it's not always visible. Tourists weren't scattered on beaches in southwest Florida on Thursday, but hundreds of dead fish were.

Russian Federation has repeatedly denied claims it interfered in the November 2016 presidential elections, where Mr Trump defeated Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

The president, according to reports, has grown anxious that his son may be in the crosshairs of special counsel Robert Mueller for the Trump Tower meeting, which was also attended by onetime Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner.

"And I fear that the message that the Kremlin cares most about is what they hear from Donald Trump, and that is still one of denial and cover for the Russians".

"Most important, Trump confirmed that the meeting with Russians was created to obtain something valuable - previously undisclosed dirt on Hillary Clinton". The President's lawyers had previously offered the special counsel written answers to obstruction questions and limiting the interview to matters before his presidential inauguration, which are largely confined to collusion.

When the Trump Tower "dirt" meeting was first revealed last summer, Donald Trump Jr. claimed in a statement that the gathering had focused on adoption policy.

Economists warn that the tariffs will punish American firms that import goods such as plastics and semiconductors from China. Markets were however steady on Tuesday, given a boost by hopes for new negotiations. "This won't work on China", he said.

Schiff also said Mr. Trump's "attempt to retract" his comments from the Putin summit in Helsinki, Finland, last month "goes well beyond any allegations of conspiracy".

Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow nevertheless attempted to rationalize the 2016 meeting as legal in an interview Sunday on ABC's This Week. "I am providing a great service by explaining this to the American People".

Trump, on a working vacation at his New Jersey golf club, began Sunday with a series of searing tweets.

"Too bad a large portion of the Media refuses to report the lies and corruption having to do with the Rigged Witch Hunt - but that is why we call them FAKE NEWS!" "They are very risky & sick!" he posted on Twitter.

Giuliani just obliterated the goal posts on Trump-Russia collusion
He said about ten of them feature Cohen and reporters, while another one is a tape of Trump, Cohen and CNN anchor Chris Cuomo. Donald Trump has said " collusion is not a crime " ahead of the first trial in the Russian Federation investigation.
