Drip-drip-drip: The seven days of Donald Trump Jr. and Russia

The mainstream media have earned the ire of President Donald Trump once again this weekend-this time over ongoing reports of Donald Jr.'s meeting with a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer. "That's politics!" Trump tweeted Monday. That payment was made 13 days before it was publicly revealed that Futerfas would represent Trump's eldest son in the Russian Federation investigations.

On Sunday, Trump tweeted: "HillaryClinton can illegally get the questions to the Debate & delete 33,000 emails but my son Don is being scorned by the Fake News Media?"

Warner and his colleagues comprise just one committee investigating Russia's possible involvement with the 2016 presidential election, as well as their possible collusion with the Trump campaign. "That's really important. Number two, they learned that the Trump team would not report it ... they would be watching for increased counterintelligence activity after the meeting, if the Trump team reported it to the Federal Bureau of Investigation". The younger Trump agreed to the meeting after being told by an intermediary in an email chain she was a Russian government attorney who would give him material damaging Clinton to support Moscow's effort to help Trump win the election.


Warner said he would seek testimony from Trump Jr. and Kushner, but was unsure whether the Russians would agree to cooperate with the congressional committee.

Sekulow reiterated that he has seen no indication that the president is under investigation by either Special Counsel Robert Mueller or the House or Senate intelligence committees' probes.

If you've donated to President Donald Trump's campaign to re-elect, there's a chance those funds have been used to pay for the first family's legal defense team.


Sekulow insists that the President had no knowledge of the meeting and pointed the finger at the Secret Service.

A source familiar with the participants of the meeting confirmed to Reuters that Akhmetshin was in the room. "I think the thing that bothers me the most is that we seem to have a frenzy of people jumping to conclusions". "Again, this is before the Russian Federation mania - this is before they were building this up in the press".

Trump said the same during a gaggle with reporters on Air Force One as he flew to Paris last week. He denied any claims that the Trump campaign had received Russian assistance during the November election. Russian Federation denies the allegations, and Trump says there was no collusion.
