  • Trump actually admits meeting with Russians was to get dirt on Hillary Clinton

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. This is not a routine thing politicians do to get information on their opponents.

The meeting was attended by the president's son as well as Paul Manafort, then chairman of Trump's presidential campaign; Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner; and several Russians, including the lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, and their representatives.

Russian Federation has repeatedly denied claims it interfered in the November 2016 presidential elections, where Mr Trump defeated Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

He later admitted he accepted the meeting with Veselnitskaya in hopes of obtaining damaging information on Clinton, but said nothing came of it. "Did I meet with people that were Russian?"

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.

"We are in a position in America where this race thing has taken over", James said Monday in an interview with CNN's Don Lemon . He sits down with @donlemon at the opening of his new elementary school for at-risk children in his hometown of Akron, Ohio .

One of Mr Trump's lawyers, Jay Sekulow, said on Sunday that the meeting had nor broken any laws.

His comments come after the president dismissed news reports Sunday that he's anxious about legal trouble for his son related to the special counsel's investigation, and renewed his attacks on the media.

Emails released by Trump Jr also suggest the meeting was about getting negative information to use against Clinton in the campaign.

"It's illegal to ask for a contribution from a foreign government or a foreign entity or a foreign person, whether they're donating dollars to the campaign or donating something of value, which could include opposition research".

Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen has claimed Trump knew about the meeting ahead of time.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating whether members of Donald Trump's presidential campaign colluded with a Russian effort to influence the election.

While "collusion" is not mentioned in US criminal statutes, Mueller is investigating whether anyone associated with Trump coordinated with the Russians, which could result in criminal charges if they entered into a conspiracy to break the law, including through cyberhacking or interfering with the election. Trump's lawyers acknowledged in a letter to Mueller's team in January 2018 that Trump dictated the response, according to the Times.

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

One of the president's personal lawyers said on Sunday that if Trump is subpoenaed by the special counsel, his lawyers will attempt to quash it in court.

"The president still hasn't made a decision, and we're not going to make a final decision just yet", he said. "They are very unsafe & sick!"
