Trump admits getting dirt on Clinton was focus of meeting with Russians

Sekulow also said that Trump has not decided whether he would voluntarily sit for an interview with U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who was appointed to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election and any possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Moscow officials.

One part of the inquiry has focussed on a June 9, 2016, meeting at Trump Tower in NY between Donald Jr., other campaign aides and a group of Russians. This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics - and it went nowhere.

But here's the thing: This is a tweet about how the Trump Tower meeting was totally fine - nothing illegal to see here.

Last year, shortly after Donald Trump Jr. released an email thread arranging the meeting, the president said it was a meeting "in order to get info on an opponent" and said there was nothing unusual about it.

The president's tweet about the meeting was one in a thread in which he reiterated criticism of Mueller, calling his probe "the most one sided witch hunt in the history of our country" peppered with "lies and corruption".

Previously, the Trumps pushed another explanation for the meeting, after having failed to disclosed it and denied anything of the sort had ever happened in the first place.

In reality, numerous criminal lawyers have pointed out that colluding with a foreign power to win an election or even attempting to do so may constitute conspiracy against the United States.

As it stands, the gaffer has only two fit central defenders with both Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan sidelined with hip and hamstring problems respectively.

The President was advised that his tweeting only gives oxygen to the topic, even if those around Trump do not believe there is any truly new development.

The federal tax and bank fraud charges Manafort faces are not related to the Trump campaign but Manafort's close relations with Russians and a Kremlin-backed Ukrainian politician are under scrutiny in the trial. "But I think, look, if you get a subpoena, you file what's called a motion to quash", Sekulow told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos on Sunday. Paul Manafort, who ran Trump's campaign at a crucial time leading into the Republican National Convention, is now on trial on charges concerning his previous business activities that grew out of Mueller's probe.

Interested in Russia Investigation?

The infamous meeting was thrust back into the spotlight last month after Trump's former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, alleged Trump approved the meeting. Last week, Trump's national security team said Russian Federation was behind "pervasive" attempts to interfere in November 2018 congressional elections.

Trump, on a working vacation at his New Jersey golf club, began Sunday with a series of searing tweets.

A photo of the two middle-aged men wearing "Make America Great Again" hats and the gray tees went viral on Twitter, gathering more than 18,000 likes, 7,000 retweets and more than a few angry and questioning comments.
