Trump says son sought intel on Clinton from Russians

"I did not know about it!"

Donald Trump Jr. initially responded to the first revelations about the meeting by releasing a misleading statement claiming the meeting primarily concerned Russian adoption policy.

Eliason noted that Mueller is investigating Russian election activity and that Trump himself is not on the ballot, so the Justice Department rule of thumb about timing and elections may not apply in this case. It claimed that the primary goal of the meeting was to discuss adoptions, even though that's not why Trump Jr. took the meeting in the first place.

A day later, the paper reported that Trump Jr. was promised damaging information about Clinton at the meeting.

U.S. President Donald Trump, in the midst of a working vacation, unleashed a new barrage of attacks on the national news media Sunday, saying it was "very risky & sick!"

Mueller would have the option to issue a subpoena compelling the president to testify if Trump chose not to be interviewed.

The Post had reported that the statement to The Times was dictated by the president, though at the time Trump's lawyers denied his involvement.

As a reminder, the offer came to Trump Jr.by way of Rob Goldstone, a music publicist who knew the Trumps through the Miss Universe pageant. Sekulow asked on ABC News' "This Week," saying no laws prohibit campaign aides from meeting with foreign agents. The President claimed it was Hillary Clinton who had colluded with Russian Federation.

But "willfully soliciting a foreign contribution is a crime", Rick Hasen, a campaign finance expert and law professor at the University of California, Irvine, said in an email Monday. It's called opposition research or even research into your opponent.

"Let's be honest with the American people, there are irregularities in this investigation, the likes of which we have not seen", Sekulow added later. That explanation did not last very long because then emails about that meeting came out. The problem is as Trump's defenders want to say all the time except when they don't want to say it, collusion's not a legal term.

Rep. Adam Schiff of California, the senior Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Sunday he believes the president is so busy worrying about allegations of conspiracy and collusion against the Trump campaign that he refuses to concede that the Russians interfered in the 2016 election at all.

The President defended the meeting as "totally legal and done all the time in politics".

"None of this is normal or credible".

Trump's days of private anger spilled out into public with the Twitter outburst, which comes at a perilous time for the president.

Trump's legal team, led by Rudy Giuliani, is expected to keep the negotiations going. His former campaign chairman Paul Manafort's trial is also underway and getting significant coverage.

"It depends on motives and knowledge at the time of the meeting".

Mirengoff explained that the Times is confusing the objective of the meeting - for Trump, getting the information about Clinton - with the focus of the meeting - "what the participants actually talked about". Dowd subsequently resigned from the Trump team.

In another, he expressed frustration with both the media and Mueller's probe. "I did not know about it!" the president tweeted Sunday morning.

However, Kavanaugh said in a speech at Catholic University in 2016 that U.S. v. Nixon was among a handful of cases that contributed to the "greatest moments in American judicial history" in which judges "stood up to the other branches, were not cowed and enforced the law". They purposely cause great division & distrust.

Trump was joined for his Saturday rally in OH by former White House communications director Hope Hicks, who departed the administration earlier this year.

"The president has been clear that he wants to interview", he said.
