President Trump appears to change his story about meeting

Trump fears his son may have inadvertently gotten into legal trouble report

Trump caused a major media uproar over the last few days, not only because he admitted Donald Trump Jr. took the meeting to get dirt on his political opponents, but also because the two repeatedly denied that the meeting was held for that objective. "I did not know about it".

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

In June 2016, Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and campaign chairman Paul Manafort met with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.

Email released by Donald Jr. himself showed he had been keen on the meeting because his father's campaign was being offered potentially damaging information on Clinton.

The Trump administration maintains they believed the goal of the meeting was to get intelligence on Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, however, they have since described the meeting as a "waste of time".

She suggested, however, that Trump's supporters in the Republican Party just might choose to defend him if it is proven that his campaign did indeed collude with Russian officials ahead of the 2016 presidential elections.

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

But legal experts have pointed out several possible criminal charges, including conspiracy against the United States and aiding and abetting a conspiracy.

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

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

Salva Kiir promises new peace deal "will not collapse"
A similar arrangement, however, fell apart in July 2016 when fighting erupted in the capital, Juba, and Machar fled the country. The transitional Parliament will comprise 550 lawmakers, 332 from Kiir's side and 128 from Machar's faction.

Manchester United's move for Barcelona's Yerry Mina cancelled
Signing a centre half is still the priority and the club are favourites to sign Yerry Mina from Barcelona for around £27 million. Everton and Manchester United have both been linked with Mina, who struggled for Barcelona under Ernesto Valverde last season.

According to Rubin, Trump's acknowledgment of the goal of the 2016 meeting was worse than his previous remarks to Lester Holt, where he told the NBC anchor that he fired FBI Director James Comey because he was thinking about Special Counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing probe into Russia's alleged involvement in the 2016 elections.

"Too bad a large portion of the Media refuses to report the lies and corruption having to do with the Rigged Witch Hunt - but that is why we call them FAKE NEWS!" "The message from Trump Jr.is, 'If you have it, we want it".

"He has to stick to that part because if he says he knew about the meeting, that nearly certainly means Donald Jr. lied in front of Congress, and I think that that would nearly certainly mean that Donald Jr. would get indicted", Abrams said.

"The Russians offered damaging info on your opponent".

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.

Fox News national security strategist Sebastian Gorka reacts to media frenzy over Trump Tower meeting on 'Hannity'. 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.

Sekulow also downplayed comments made by the president's other attorney, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who recently said that collusion is not a crime, calling them "rather unremarkable". At the time, Comey was overseeing the Russian Federation investigation.

Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow nevertheless attempted to rationalize the 2016 meeting as legal in an interview Sunday on ABC's This Week.

US intelligence agencies concluded a year ago that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 USA election with a campaign of hacking into Democratic Party computer networks and spreading disinformation on social media.

"Citing multiple sources, the Times reports that Trump Jr". "I am providing a great service by explaining this to the American People. They can also cause War!"
