President Trump defends son's meeting with Russian lawyer

Trump lawyer Marc Kasowitz

Sherman announced plans to file the articles in June, saying Trump obstructed justice in the Russia investigation.

The emails offered the most concrete evidence to date that Trump campaign officials embraced an offer of Russian help to win the election, a subject that has cast a cloud over Trump's presidency and spurred multiple investigations.

The June 9 meeting involved a lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, who was described to Trump Jr.in emails as a "Russian government lawyer" who had incriminating information on Clinton.

Shortly after that interview, Trump boarded Air Force One and took off for Paris, where he's celebrating Bastille Day with French President Emmanuel Macron. "Strong military, strong borders - but he cares less about the borders - but strong military, tremendous".

The Washington Post reported Wednesday that the Kremlin controversy has thrust the fledgling White House into "chaos" and left Trump "enraged that the Russia cloud still hangs over his presidency". They believe that they exist in a space above the law and outside the rules. I think we get along very, very well. "It's actually kind of unnerving to be in a White House when it's being investigated by special counsel".

"These are the most powerful people in all of Russia, the richest men in Russia", Trump says during the public red carpet ceremony, which was included in the clips obtained by CNN.

But the worst offender of the chaos, in some cases, is the president himself. "But I understand she was at the table". Veselnitskaya has denied ever working for the Russian government. Those (previous) ceasefires haven't held at all.

The latest revelation in the Putin palooza - that

The former largest foreign investor in Russia said the country is now "completely, absolutely uninvestable". I think we need dialogue. Then, after that meeting, he surrounded his misdeeds with a bodyguard of lies. In 2013 the then-reality show star had a cameo in one of Agalarov's music videos, using his signature "You're fired!" catchphrase from "The Apprentice".

The President has repeatedly dismissed the Russia story as "fake news", but since his son's complicity or naivety has been revealed, he has admitted in an interview that "something happened" in terms of Russian meddling in the election. Goldstone wrote that the information "would be very useful to your father".

"Yes, it's what cable news is obsessed with". The emails undo months of denials - no matter how much the President tweets that his son is innocent.

"I'm Jewish. I presume you are too". We're going to be exporting energy - he doesn't want that. If it did, why would such a fumbling attempt to get dirt have been needed? He went to high school in Switzerland and to college in the US at Marymount Manhattan College and joined his father's company, Crocus Group, becoming a commercial director in 2001.

"Energy is doing levels that we've never done before".

The president also addressed important domestic topics like health care reform, taxes and religious liberty.

The president, who found out about his son's meeting just several days before the New York Times first broke the news, declined to answer whether he felt misled by his own team for not knowing sooner about the controversial meeting.

According to Forbes, Crocus ran a number of trade fairs, but has expanded into developing luxury buildings and shopping malls.
