Russian Lawyer's Entry Into US Touches Off Federal Finger-Pointing

Posted July 15, 2017

"Remember, when you hear the words "sources say" from the Fake Media, often times those sources are made up and do not exist", Trump wrote tweeted early Wednesday morning.

US President Donald Trump is an open person who can listen and respond to his interlocutor's arguments, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Friday. She said the Trump campaign would need to research it more, and after that Trump Jr. lost interest, according to Akhmetshin.

The revelation of the meeting would be the most tangible evidence yet of a connection between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation, a subject that has also prompted an investigation by a federal special counsel.

News reports the former Soviet counter intelligence officer is a "Russian-American lobbyist" who "is suspected by some USA officials of having ongoing ties to Russian intelligence". I think in the view of the campaign, it was seen as just one more group, one more set of meetings of people who didn't have anything. But in a conversation with reporters, Trump said that "in fact maybe it was mentioned at some point", adding he was not told it was about Clinton.

Blumenthal said he is both "gratified and pleased"' that Trump Jr. and Manafort will appear in front of the committee.

The emails were sent ahead of a Trump Tower meeting with a Russian lawyer that Mr Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, and his son-in-law Jared Kushner also attended.

Trump Jnr eagerly agreed to meet the lawyer, who he was told by an intermediary was part of Moscow's official support for his father's campaign, according to emails the son released this week.

"The revelation that the Trump Campaign eagerly meant to possibly collude with Russian Federation is deeply disturbing", Democratic House minority leader Nancy Pelosi tweeted Thursday. If somebody called and said, hey - and you're a Democrat - and by the way, they have taken them - hey, I have really some information on Donald Trump.

"We still have no reason to believe that the objective of the meeting was to talk about Hillary Clinton or the United States election", Balber said.

His statement came after the presidential son's meeting with a Russian lawyer in the wake of election campaign came to light earlier this week. "Jared Kushner's security clearance must be immediately revoked".

Congressional investigators clamoring to interview Trump Jr.

"My son is a wonderful young man", the president said.

"This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump", Goldstone added.

Later yesterday, a spokesman for the president's outside legal team contended that participants in the June meeting "misrepresented who they were and who they worked for".

Trump Jr. has found himself engulfed in controversy after releasing emails shared between him and publicist Rob Goldman, who brokered the meeting.
