Trump acknowledges Lyin' Junior meeting was meant to 'get information' on Clinton

Trump says son's Trump Tower meeting with Russians meant to 'get information' on Clinton

“This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics — and it went nowhere,” Trump tweeted.

by Daniella Silva / Aug.05.2018 / 10:05 AM ET



President Donald Trump said Sunday that the meeting between his son, Donald Trump Jr., and a Russian lawyer in June 2016 was “to get information on an opponent,” seemingly contradicting a statement from more than a year ago that the meeting focused on a Russian adoption program.

“Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower,” he tweeted Sunday morning.

“This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics — and it went nowhere,” he tweeted, defending the meeting and appearing to refer to political opposition research done by campaigns.

“We primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children that was active and popular with American families years ago and was since ended by the Russian government, but it was not a campaign issue at the time and there was no follow up,” that statement said, adding that it was "a short introductory meeting."

Meanwhile, Trump’s attorney Jay Sekulow said Sunday that he “had bad information” at the time when he gave a previous statement that the president had nothing to do with Trump Jr.’s original response to reports of the Trump Tower meeting. His attorneys have since said Trump dictated the statement on behalf of his son.

“Over time, facts develop,” he said on ABC’s “This Week.”

In his Sunday morning tweets, Trump went on to reiterate that he did not know in advance about the meeting after news reports that Michael Cohen had asserted that Trump knew in advance about that meeting. That would contradict Trump Jr.’s congressional testimony in May 2017.

Trump Jr. also testified in September that regarding potential damaging information on then Democratic-candidate Hillary Clinton, “To the extent they had information concerning the fitness, character or qualifications of a presidential candidate, I believed that I should at least hear them out.”

Trump went on to criticize special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe and its investigators, renewing his claim that the FBI and Department of Justice should be investigated instead.

“Why aren’t Mueller and the 17 Angry Democrats looking at the meetings concerning the Fake Dossier and all of the lying that went on in the FBI and DOJ?” the president said in another tweet. “This is the most one sided Witch Hunt in the history of our country. Fortunately, the facts are all coming out, and fast!”

Trump and his supporters have claimed the Russia investigation was improperly launched based on a speculative opposition research document paid for by Democrats, the so-called "Trump dossier" compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele, which alleges collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

The dossier formed part of the evidence used to meet a surveillance warrant's legal burden to authorize electronic surveillance of Trump's former aide Carter Page. However, people who have read the supporting documents for the FISA warrants, including Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, say they contain secret evidence establishing ties between Page and Russians — evidence that goes beyond what was included in the dossier.

"There was no meeting."

"Oh, THAT meeting. Well, there weren't any Russians there."

"Okay, there were Russians. But we just talked about adoptions."

"Actually, we didn't talk about adoptions. We came for dirt on Hillary. But they didn't have any."


Give it time, I'm sure the story will change again...

From another thread:

Trump dictated Lyin' Junior's initial response to the NYT report about the Trump Tower meeting:

"It was a short introductory meeting. I asked Jared (Kushner) and Paul (Manafort) to stop by. We primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children that was active and popular with American families years ago and was since ended by the Russian government, but it was not a campaign issue at the time and there was no follow up."

Now, with his tweet today:

"Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower. This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics - and it went nowhere. I did not know about it!"

Welp...

One of the president's personal lawyers said on Sunday that if Trump is subpoenaed by the special counsel, his lawyers will attempt to quash it in court. Any legal battle over whether the president can be compelled to testify could go all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, the lawyer, Jay Sekulow, said on ABC's "This Week."

If it were totally legal and something all campaigns do, why did the Trump campaign lie about it for over a year? Why did they claim it was about adoptions? Why did they lie about who actually attended the meeting? Why are they changing their story now that Mueller is tightening the noose around Trump?

I realize you prefer to ignore facts that contradict your hero-worship of Trump, so I'm not expecting a substantive answer. Feel free to reply with your standard answers of "Trump is awesome" and "LOL at the triggered snowflake".

You don't care that your President has lied (at a minimum) to you and everyone else. Neat.

It could lead to perjury charges for Lyin' Junior, yes.

Hopefully Trump will issue a blanket pardon for Lyin' Junior a week or two before the November midterms.

He is dumb enough to do that.

I think it's terrible if any President lies. If caught, he should be removed immediately.

It might. He was under oath when he stated that Trump didn't know about this meeting.

Other than that my fellow Republicans wouldn't nominate this fool, and that he'd win the EV, I can't think of a thing else I've been wrong about Trump.
