Trump lawyer: If Mueller subpoenas president, case will go to Supreme Court

After Trump Administration Bans CNN Journalist UN Experts Condemn Donald Trump’s Repeated Criticism of News Media

"Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower", Trump wrote.

"This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics", the president said.

Trump is denying he's concerned about the infamous Trump Tower meeting attended by his son, claiming it was "totally legal and done all the time in politics" while adding 'I did not know about it'.

Also, if any Americans aided in disseminating the Russian hacked data, then they could be roped in as co-conspirators in Mueller's indictment of 12 Russian intelligence officers (GRU) for hacking the DNC, DCCC, and Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign during the 2016 election and leaking through DCLeaks and Guccifer 2.0.

The president's past comments decrying the press as an "enemy of the people" have incited anger among supporters at Trump rallies, and have been condemned by the United Nations as "strategic" and non-factual attacks that "increase the risk of journalists being targeted with violence".

Amid public uproar over the meeting, the president's son was forced to releasefollow-up statements, ultimately acknowledging that the meeting's true goal had been to get dirt about Hillary Clinton from a lawyer he had been told was working for the Russian government.

On Sunday, US media including the Washington Post, CNN and AP reported that Mr Trump was anxious Donald Trump Jr could be in legal trouble because of the 9 June 2016 meeting with Ms Veselnitskaya.

Trump, of course, claims to not knowing about the meeting, in spite of his involvement in the statement mentioned above. As we now know, Trump Jr. later acknowledged that it clearly wasn't just about adoption.

Canadian exports reach record high despite trade war
Canada's total exports increased 4.1 per cent to $50.7 billion in June , the first time they have topped the $50-billion mark. Rising demand by US households and businesses is expected to keep supporting purchases of foreign-made goods in coming months.

Trump's former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, has claimed that the president knew about, and approved of, that meeting, according to multiple news reports.

In addition to weighing in publicly on the Trump Tower meeting, the president also unleashed angry tweets against the media Sunday morning from his 11-day working vacation in Bedminster, N.J. Trump's morning Twitter post was his most direct statement on the objective of the meeting, though his son and others have said it was to gather damaging information on the Democratic candidate.

Later White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders had said the president weighed in, but didn't dictate a statement released in July 2017 on the meeting, which said the get-together was focused on Russian adoptions.

However, legal experts say that Mr Trump Jr could fall foul of campaign finance laws, which prohibit accepting anything of value from a foreign government or foreign national.

"The real question here is, would a meeting of that nature constitute a violation of the law?"

'The question is what law, statute or rule or regulation's been violated? "That would be one of the possible charges, or aiding and abetting conspiracy". Trump Jr. was also told the offer was "part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump". "But if that decision is made, we'll - we'll - we'll prepare to handle it in court", he said.

'I think our decisions will get made in the next week to 10 days, ' Giuliani told Politico on Friday.
