Secret Service: We didn't clear Don Jr.'s Russian lawyer

DonaldTrump

"It's a little unbelievable that neither the son nor the son-in-law ever shared that information with their dad, the candidate", Warner, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, told CNN's "State of the Union".

"I need to be clear on this - the President's engagement on this was that he was not aware of it, and did not participate in any of this, so I want to be really clear on that", Jay Sekulow said.

"Donald Trump, Jr. was not a protectee of the USSS in June 2016".

The tweet referred to a primary debate question that had been provided to the Clinton campaign and not to her then-rival, Sen.

The President has maintained having no knowledge of the meeting until the Times' reporting.

Initially, Donald Trump Jr. said the meeting focused on Russia's moves to halt adoptions by American families, but he changed his story after new details emerged. "I think the whole idea of trying to run the presidency like a family grocery store, I don't think that works very well".

Futerfas was announced as Trump Jr.'s lawyer earlier this week after The New York Times first reported the shady encounter between Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya. As such, Trump and his wife Melania were being protected at the time of the meeting. "But this one was not".

"That is not correct", Akhmetshin said.

"This could be a good issue to expose how the DNC is accepting bad money", Veselnitskaya reportedly told the Trump associates at the time, as recalled by Ahkmetshin.

Moscow has denied any interference and the president and Trump Jr. have denied any collusion.

Kucinich said he understands Elleithee's concerns, but he doesn't see how Trump Jr. violated campaign finance law, which means accepting a campaign contribution or donation from a foreign national. A special counsel and several Congressional committees are investigating.

Veselnitskaya acknowledged in an exclusive interview that she was accompanied by at least one other man, whom she would not identify, NBC said.

TAPPER: Isn't it kind of important whether or not what Donald Trump Jr., Manafort and Kushner did, isn't it important, whether or not it's legal, whether or not it's wrong, whether or not it's ethical?
