President Urged to Stop Tweeting on Trump Tower Meeting Between Advisers, Russians

Trump attacks report that he’s worried about son’s exposure to Mueller inquiry

US President Donald Trump admitted his son, Donald Jr (seen here), met with a Russian lawyer in Trump Tower in 2016.

He concludes the tweet by saying, "I did not know about it!"

John TrumpTrump Jr. backs Wyoming businessman in gubernatorial primary Obama ethics czar pushes back on Trump: Meetings to get dirt on political opponent do not "happen all the time" Trump lawyer Sekulow downplays potential Trump Tower meeting violations MORE's Trump Tower meeting with a Russian attorney are "absolutely terrifying and very disturbing".

Trump, Jr. himself has offered conflicting statements about the meeting, telling Senate investigators in September that he wanted to "hear [the Russians] out" regarding their "information concerning the fitness, character or qualifications of a presidential candidate".

Donald Trump rounded on a report on Sunday that he is anxious about son Donald Trump Jr's exposure to special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia-collusion investigation.

"On Saturday, Trump Jr. had offered a different explanation for the meeting, focusing exclusively on the adoption issue". The meeting - set up by an intermediary Rob Goldstone, a music publicist - was also attended by Trump's then-campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, and Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who now serves as a White House senior adviser.

Napolitano said that federal law prohibits "receipt" of information or anything of value by Americans involved in a campaign from foreign individuals or entities.

This is something Trump has said regularly about the Trump Tower meeting, and something he has re-upped now that Michael Cohen is reportedly telling people that Trump did know about it.

Mr. Trump has said he would like to talk to Mr. Mueller, who is investigating whether his campaign colluded with Russians during the 2016 election.

And Trump in his tweet Sunday repeated his assertion that he had no advance knowledge of the Trump Tower meeting.

Trump called the reporting a "complete fabrication".

But the president's opponents say the tweet Sunday morning contradicts his earlier statements, which had said the meeting at Trump Tower focused on Russian adoptions.

"I made a mistake in my statement", he said.

"The president can't distinguish between any allegations of conspiracy against his campaign and the broader problem of Russian Federation continuing to interfere in our elections", Schiff said on CBS's "Face the Nation".

President Trump denies any collusion.

In another, he expressed frustration with both the media and Mueller's probe.

In an interview on ABC News' "This Week", Sekulow cited the president's most recent post calling for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to "stop this rigged witch hunt", saying it is well within Trump's constitutional rights.

His comments were part of a broader Twitter rant Sunday, which also included a tweet falsely claiming the press "purposely cause great division & distrust". Trump wrote. "They are very risky & sick!"
