Donald Trump admits son was getting dirt on Hillary Clinton

Sekulow Obstruction of justice by tweet is absurd

Special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating USA intelligence findings that Russians conspired to sway the election in Trump's favour.

At the time, Donald Trump Jr issued a statement explaining that he and the lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya (pictured), had "primarily discussed a programme about the adoption of Russian children".

One part of Mueller's inquiry and congressional investigations has focused on a meeting months before the November election in Trump Tower in NY between Russian officials, Donald Trump Jr., the president's eldest son, and other campaign aides. He also said the meeting was "totally legal" and he did not know about it. Weija Jiang reports. "I did not know about it!" the President tweeted. He made the claim standing next to Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki last month, and then a day later during a Cabinet meeting at the White House.

"Most politicians would have gone to a meeting like the one Don jr attended in order to get info on an opponent", Trump wrote on Twitter.

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

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". Trump Jr.'s first statement after the initial report asserted the meeting was only about adoption.

‘Collusion is not a crime,’ says Trump, as Mueller-Manafort trial begins
The other 31 people charged have either pleaded guilty or are Russians seen as unlikely to enter an American courtroom. Nevertheless, Trump's legal team is preparing to counter the results of the investigation.

That Sekulow had misstated the origin of the July 2017 statement provided to The New York Times and attributed to Donald Trump Jr. became clear earlier this year, in a leaked letter from Trump's legal team to Mueller's office. Others have said the meeting could provide clues to a broader conspiracy by Trump officials with Russians.

President Trump denies any collusion. 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.

And he raged against the media's obsession with his links to Russian Federation and the status of Michael Cohen, his former fixer, who is under federal investigation in NY. American intelligence officials say Russian Federation is targeting the November congressional elections, which will determine whether or not Republicans keep control of both chambers of the U.S. Congress.

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

"The Fake News hates me saying that they are the Enemy of the People only because they know it's TRUE", Trump tweeted Sunday. "I believe it's in the best interest of the president and of the United States of America and the American people for that investigation to run the course, for all the truth to come out". "They can also cause War!"

"They're talking about this blue wave", Trump said referring to way Democrats are depicted on electoral maps.
