Trump says his son sought information on Clinton from Russians in 2016

06 August 2018

In one of a series of early morning tweets, the United States president issued in apparent reaction to a CNN report, Trump said: "Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower".

However, he revealed in his tweet what many have alleged for more than a year: that the infamous Trump Tower meeting during the height of the 2016 presidential campaign was about obtaining damaging information on Clinton, his opponent for the White House, whom Trump did not specifically mention in his tweet.

The lawyer recalled the moment he realized he was starting to get under Trump's skin: "He's calling me a 'third-rate lawyer, ' I though it was pretty good that he was saying that because it meant that finally, after nearly two hours, that I had gotten to him".

Do not forget to drain water from tires, cans, flowerpots, clogged rain gutters, rain barrels, toys and puddles. Between 2013 and 2015, there were no reported human cases with only single cases reported in 2016 and 2017.

One of the key concerns for Trump's lawyers is whether or not they should allow the president to sit with prosecutors led by Robert Mueller, the special counsel overseeing the federal probe. Far from something that is "done all the time", Trump's admission would make him the first USA presidential candidate in history to admit accepting campaign aid from the Russian government. And despite Trump's public Twitter denial, the president has expressed worry that his son may face legal exposure even as he believes he did nothing wrong, according to three people close to the White House familiar with the president's thinking but not authorized to speak publicly about private conversations.

At the time, in July 2017, Trump offered a similar comment to the one he made on Sunday, dismissing the meeting with a Russian lawyer promising dirt on his political opponent as no big deal.

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.

These are all significant developments in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into whether the Trump campaign conspired with the Russian government. "You have to look at what laws, rules, regulations, statutes are purportedly violated here". "And so the ability for his attorneys to be able to make the arguments they need to make on his behalf, as I've told him for a long time, is what he should permit them to do".

China has also seen increased affluence among its consumers, which are quick to embrace innovative new technologies and services. The project is now codenamed as "Dragonfly" and would bring Google Search to China in the form of an Android app.

Perhaps the Trumps, as they claim, didn't take any help from the Kremlin to win the 2016 election - but as even the president now acknowledges, they definitely wanted it.

"I don't represent Don Jr.", Sekulow said, "but I will tell you I have no knowledge at all of Don Jr. being told that he's a target of any investigation, and I have no knowledge of him being interviewed by the special counsel".

"If I ask Donald a question, 'What time is it?' He would probably tell me how to build a clock", the lawyer explained. "I had bad information at that point".

Mueller is examining whether Trump obstructed the investigation of Russia's role in the 2016 election. However, he said only Mueller can determine whether the evidence rises to the level of criminal activity that is "beyond a reasonable doubt". "They can also cause War!"
