Trump says son sought intel on Clinton from Russians

  • Counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice at Regent University in Virginia Beach Va

In an angry tweet yesterday morning, however, he attacked the "Fake News" media reports that he was concerned about his son's role.

"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, well, would you look at that: the patented "how dare this Fox moron accuse me of smoking something other than premium cigars" tweet.

On Sunday, Trump also defended tariffs he has imposed on imports into the U.S. Add Donald Trump as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Donald Trump news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

"The question is, how would it be illegal?" he asked.

The Republican president had previously said the meeting was about the adoption of Russian children by Americans.

"The question is what law, statue or rule or regulation's been violated?"

"Most politicians would have gone to a meeting like the one Don jr attended in order to get info on an opponent", Trump wrote on Twitter. At the center of the session: Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya and others with Russia connections.

"I had bad information at that time", the lawyer said. "I got that one wrong".

From there, the case would end up bouncing around the courts, Sekulow said.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating whether members of Donald Trump's presidential campaign colluded with a Russian effort to influence the election.

"I'm sure that Rudy Giuliani spends big chunks of his days chain-smoking cigarettes, white-knuckling it, just hoping another tweet doesn't show up", Goldberg said on air.

The two sides have been at an impasse since March, when Mueller raised the threat of issuing a subpoena to the president, and Trump's team has sought to make Trump's conduct as president off-limits to Mueller's investigators, should an interview occur.

"If in fact Donald Trump Jr. solicited this opposition research, which is a thing of value, that could be a civil violation for which the Federal Election Commission could impose a fine".

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

"The Russians offered damaging info on your opponent".

Trump fired Comey in May 2017, several days after the then-FBI director told Congress that he could not comment on whether there was evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

That's risky, Schiff said, since National Intelligence Director Dan Coats and other top administration officials warned just last week that the Russians are continuing their efforts to influence USA voters in this year's midterm elections.

Article II establishes the president's control of the executive branch.

"Most important, Trump confirmed that the meeting with Russians was created to obtain something valuable - previously undisclosed dirt on Hillary Clinton".

"It doesn't mean illegality, it doesn't mean criminality", he said.
