Trump team expected to respond to Mueller regarding interview

Trump team expected to respond to Mueller regarding interview

President Trump has admitted that the objective of a June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower between a Kremlin-connected lawyer and Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr., was to get dirt on Hillary Clinton. "This was a meeting to get information on an opponent". "I did not know about it!" the president tweeted Sunday morning.

President Trump attorney Jay Sekulow on Sunday blamed "bad information" for erroneously denying that the president had a role in drafting his campaign's response to a key June 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower.

Trump's admission that his son's 2016 Russian meeting was to get information on Clinton runs counter to the narrative he has previously pushed about the meeting.

Trump Jr. has shifted his explanations for his Russian meeting.

The Trump camp maintains that it doesn't matter anyway, because information on Clinton was never delivered by the Russians, or received by the campaign, in the meeting.

On Trump's tweet about Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting at Trump Tower: It undercuts the latest official story his team has put out.

USA media then reported that the U.S. president had been involved in the initial statement his son issued on the meeting.

President Trump himself seemed to shrug it off, saying in July 2017 that, "from a practical standpoint, most people would have taken that meeting".

When Lemon pressed James if he would consider running for president, he eventually said , "Let's see first". Lemon's chief offense was apparently making James look smart, which Trump said "wasn't easy to do".

Amid growing anger and confrontation in the political sphere, Trump has embarked on a weekly campaign speechmaking binge, drawing sustenance from an adoring fan base that is resentful of a Washington-centric establishment that is seen as letting it down in favor of immigrants, minorities, and foreigners.

The tweet was not the only time the President has tweeted on the topic, but it does come at a time when the President is increasingly anxious about special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation and how it may impact him and his family.

Former New Jersey Governor and Trump ally Chris Christie, meanwhile, offered a more tempered defense of the president's tweeting Sunday on ABC.

He said he and other Trump lawyers have been discussing the details of a draft version of the letter in recent days and hope to send it to Mueller "sometime on Tuesday or Wednesday". And they said Mr Trump Jr, Mr Kushner and White House staff had made a "full disclosure" about that session to Mr Mueller and Congress. It's called opposition research or even research into your opponent.

Donald Trump has not directly referenced the Trump Tower meeting since his tweets this weekend. Trump has been enthusiastic about the prospect of a sit-down with Mueller, regularly claiming he can prove there was no collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation to meddle in the 2016 election.

A decision about whether he sits for an interview with Mueller may also occur in the coming weeks, according to another one of his attorneys, Rudy Giuliani.

"I find it hard to believe the president will do the interview voluntarily", said David Kris, a former head of the national security division at the Justice Department. They can also cause War!'

In another, he expressed frustration with both the media and Mueller's probe. "They are very unsafe & sick!"
