Trump Lashes Out In Tweets, Claims Ignorance Of Trump Tower 'Dirt' Meeting

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

Trump's tweet, however, conflicts with a statement that Trump Jr. released to the New York Times in July 2017, as the newspaper prepared to report about the meeting.

Trump then particularly went after recent reporting about Robert Mueller's probe into possible links between his campaign and Russian officials, particularly stories on how he may be concerned about his eldest son's legal exposure.

It is his most direct statement so far on the reason for Donald Trump Jr's meeting with Kremlin-linked lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya in June 2016.

Amid the fallout, Trump Jr. even released his own emails regarding the meeting, which proved that it had been pitched to him, by music publicist Rob Goldstone, as a meeting with the "Crown prosecutor of Russia" who had "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". Just days after the Trump Tower meeting, WikiLeaks announces that it has that information, and has those emails on Hillary Clinton.

Mr Trump's latest tweet appears to contradict a previous statement from the Trump camp about the meeting.

".Why aren't Mueller and the 17 Angry Democrats looking at the meetings concerning the Fake Dossier and all of the lying that went on in the Federal Bureau of Investigation and DOJ?"

Trump's attorney Jay Sekulow initially claimed that Trump was not involved in crafting Trump Jr.'s misleading statement.

Iran sees China as ‘pivotal’ to salvaging its nuclear deal
European countries say they remain committed to the agreement, seeing it as the surest way to safeguard their national security. The Iranian rial has fallen to 99,000 to the US dollar despite a government-imposed rate of 44,000.

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

It is illegal for a campaign to accept help from a foreign person or government.

Political campaigns routinely pursue opposition research on their opponents, but not with foreign representatives from a country viewed as an adversary.

It is common for United States politicians to research their opponents during a campaign.

"If it's what you say I love it", Trump Jr. responded.

Donald Trump Jr. has not been charged with a crime in connection to the Trump Tower meeting.

"I made a mistake in my statement", he said.

Kobe Bryant gets credited by Terrell Owens in Hall of Fame speech
The six-time Pro Bowler compiled 15,934 receiving yards and 153 receiving touchdowns on 1,078 career receptions. That after he helped the Eagles get to Super Bowl XXXIX the year before. "I love you, too, " Owens said.

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.

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".

Whatever his explanation, Trump has consistently said he didn't know about the Trump Tower meeting.

Trump has long told his lawyers that he is willing to be interviewed and would like to sit with Mueller to hasten the inquiry's conclusion.

And he raged against the media's obsession with his links to Russian Federation and the status of Michael Cohen, his former fixer, who is under federal investigation in NY. Last week, Trump's national security team said Russian Federation was behind "pervasive" attempts to interfere in November 2018 congressional elections.

Trump's attacks on the special counsel's investigation have been rebuffed by Republican leaders in Congress who have expressed support for Mueller.

"Yesterday - I don't know if you if you were following this over the weekend - he thumbed a doozy". They purposely cause great division & distrust. Trump wrote. "They are very risky & sick!"
