Donald Trump admits son was getting dirt on Hillary Clinton

Donald Jr said in July 2017 that the meeting had been about USA adoptions of Russian children, a statement apparently dictated by his father.

The Trump team maintains that the meeting failed to yield compromising information on Clinton, Trump's Democratic opponent.

Emails arranging the meeting showed that Rob Goldstone, a former music publicist with ties to both Trump and Moscow, told Trump Jr. he had "official documents and information that would implicate Hillary [Clinton] and her dealings with Russian Federation and would be very useful to your father", which was "part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump".

".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?"

"I wasn't involved in the statement drafting at all, nor was the President", Sekulow said on July 12, 2017. But he admitted that doesn't mean "there's proof beyond a reasonable doubt of a criminal conspiracy", saying it would be up to special counsel Robert Mueller to potentially make that case. Opposition research on Hillary Clinton?

Schiff said the "biggest thing that the president could do is confront Moscow to establish some kind of deterrent" to prevent further meddling in the upcoming midterm elections.

The Carr fire, burning about 162 miles north of Sacramento, killed a power company lineman, according to a CBS affiliate. Varney's radio wasn't communicating with headquarters, so his assistant relayed messages - until they lost contact.

The admission is a complete reversal from prior explanations of the meeting.

He also claimed the meeting was "totally legal", but legal experts question whether that's true or not.

And they said Trump Jr., Kushner and White House staffers had made a "full disclosure" about that session to Mueller and Congress. "None of this is normal or credible", Mr. Schiff tweeted.

Why is the Trump Tower meeting controversial?

"Now you say you didn't know in advance".

Trump's days of private anger spilled out into public with the Twitter outburst, which comes at a perilous time for the president. 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. He also released the email exchange that brought about the meeting. At the time, Comey was overseeing the Russian Federation investigation.

Trump admits son met with Russian to get information on opponent
Trump's days of private anger spilled out into public with the Twitter outburst, which comes at a perilous time for the president. President Trump's "fixer" Michael Cohen has reportedly claimed that then-candidate Trump approved the meeting ahead of time .

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.

In another, he expressed frustration with both the media and Mueller's probe. He went on to distance himself from Trump Jr. and the meeting: "I did not know about it!" "I am providing a great service by explaining this to the American People".

He called the "Fake" media "very risky and sick".

The source told CNN Trump has been told his tweeting "only gives oxygen to the topic".

It was at the New Jersey golf club where a brooding Trump has unleashed other inflammatory attacks and where, in spring 2017, he made the final decision to fire FBI Director James Comey, the move that triggered the Russian Federation probe.

According to Sekulow, if Mueller subpoenas the president to testify before his investigators, the action will be fought ultimately before the Supreme Court of the United States.
