Trump admits son met with Russian to get information on opponent

Putin Trump

A source close to Mr. Trump said the president is anxious about special counsel Robert Mueller targeting his son Donald Trump Jr. after his former personal attorney Michael Cohen alleged Mr. Trump knew of Don Jr.'s meeting with a Russian attorney at Trump Tower before the meeting, CNN reports.

The Washington Post reported that Trump had expressed concerns in the past week about his son Donald Trump Jr's legal exposure from the 2016 Trump Tower meeting.

Most recently, Trump tweeted about the meeting Sunday, saying it was meant "to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics".

Donald Trump rounded on a report on Sunday that he is anxious about son Donald Trump Jr's exposure to special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia-collusion investigation. But his claims publicly and to the Senate Judiciary Committee that he never told his father about the 2016 Trump Tower meeting with a Russian attorney promising dirt on Hillary Clinton have been contradicted by others in Trump's orbit.

The revelation that the Trump Tower meeting was called to transmit damaging information on Clinton is not a new one.

Google to launch heavily censored version in China
Depending on when the Chinese government approves the "toned down" Google, the app could launch anytime in the next 6-9 months. Google in 2010, pulled back its search engine and many other relevant services from the country over government censorship.

However, he subsequently admitted he had agreed to the meeting after being told he would be offered information that would prove detrimental to Mrs Clinton.

President Trump's "fixer" Michael Cohen has reportedly claimed that then-candidate Trump approved the meeting ahead of time.

Trump has denied knowing about the meeting before it happened. More than a year ago, he tweeted: "Most politicians would have gone to a meeting like the one Don jr attended in order to get info on an opponent". Also, Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani confirmed that there was a preparation meeting that occurred between Trump's campaign team on June 7th, the same day as the speech announcement.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has denied allegations by USA intelligence agencies that his government meddled and Trump denies collusion, describing the Mueller investigation as a political witch hunt that should be shut down.

"Well, the question is, 'How would it be illegal?'" Sekulow said of the meeting. "But I think, look, if you get a subpoena, you file what's called a motion to quash", Sekulow told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos on Sunday.

President Trump is back at his resort in Bedminster, New Jersey, and this morning he released another flurry of tweets, including one about his son Don Jr.

Trump's days of private anger spilled out into public with the Twitter outburst, which comes at a perilous time for the president. 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. "Did I meet with people that were Russian?" Working with a foreign national with the intent of influencing a US election could violate multiple laws, according to legal experts. Trump has seethed against what he feels are trumped-up charges against his former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, whose trial began last week and provided a visible reminder of Mueller's work.

We have since learned that the elder Trump actually dictated that statement.

Mueller is examining whether Trump obstructed the investigation of Russia's role in the 2016 election.
