Trump Acknowledges Son Sought Clinton Dirt From Russians

Trump Acknowledges Son Sought Clinton Dirt From Russians

President Trump's other claim in his Sunday tweet - that he did not know about the Trump Tower meeting with the Russians - may also be exposed as a lie. The claim seems to have enraged the president, who denied it by tweaking the story of the meeting once again, tweeting that the meeting was "to get information" and that it was "totally legal" and that Donald Jr.is a "wonderful son".

"The Fake News hates me saying that they are the Enemy of the People only because they know it's TRUE", Trump tweeted from his Bedminster golf resort in New Jersey. When the story of the meeting broke wide open in July of past year, Trump Jr. quickly issued a statement - which was dictated by his father - that the meeting had been about Russian adoption.

The President was advised that his tweeting only gives oxygen to the topic, even if those around Trump do not believe there is any truly new development.

Sekulow also on "This Week" supported the president's claim that there was nothing legally questionable about Trump Jr. having the June 2016 meeting with the Russians.

The Trump Tower meeting was arranged by British music promoter, Rob Goldstone, who told Donald Jr that he had "information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russian Federation and would be very useful to your father".

Sunday's tweet was Trump's clearest statement yet on the goal of the meeting, which has become a focal point of Mueller's investigation even as the president and his lawyers try to downplay its significance and pummel the Mueller probe with attacks.

China won't accept U.S. trade 'blackmail' - state media
China continues to move forward while for USA farmers, the trade war has represented a major step backwards. A 25% tariff would boost the cost of a range of USA imports at a time when inflation has begun to pick up.

Trump has repeatedly expressed his desire to shut down the Mueller investigation.

But at the time, the Trump administration broke from the president's story when it maintained the focus of the meeting was related to policies about adoption of Russian children. 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.

Legal experts have often pointed to a possible violation of federal election laws, which ban taking anything of value - which could include information on a political opponent - from a foreign government trying to influence a US election.

The meeting was standard opposition research.

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

"So one thing that's illegal is for the foreign entity to make the contribution". Mueller is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible coordination with Trump campaign aides.

TSMC said about 80% of affected machines were restored on August 5; the rest were expected to be up and running on August 6. We should expect shipment delays and additional costs to be incurred in order for the company to send out scheduled orders.

U.S. commentators have argued that Mr Trump's new admission that the meeting was to gain information about Mrs Clinton shows that the earlier statement was misleading. Then, during the rolling political disaster that followed, Trump Jr.

Sekulow said that the president had the authority under Article II of the U.S. Constitution to stop any investigation conducted by the Department of Justice.

"The Russians offered damaging info on your opponent".

Adam Schiff of California, top Democrat on the house intelligence committee, said on Twitter: "The Russians offered damaging info on your opponent".

Whatever his explanation, Trump has consistently said he didn't know about the Trump Tower meeting. Now you say you didn't know in advance.
