Trump tackles Russian lawyer claims head on

Glenn Zeitz lawyer who deposed Trump

"This was a meeting to get information on an opponent". "I did not know about it".

The US President has been facing growing pressure over the meeting between Donald Trump Jr and Kremlin-linked Natalia Veselnitskaya, which took place at Trump Tower in NY in June 2016.

On Sunday, Trump tweeted an apparent response to stories by CNN and The Washington Post that said he is anxious about Donald Trump Jr.'s legal exposure following the infamous 2016 meeting.

Rudy Giuliani, part of President Donald Trump's legal team, tweeted an unusual typo on Monday.

"They talked about the adoption stuff which was actually a big thing at the time, but nothing happened", Trump said in July 2017 about the meeting.

The Washington Post reported Sunday that Trump has been brooding in private about whether his son unintentionally put himself in legal jeopardy by meeting with Veselnitskaya.

Trump has recently come under fire for his own role in the 2016 meeting, as former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen claimed that the president knew about the meeting in advance - something Trump has previously denied.

KEITH: We are back exactly where we were this time a year ago, talking about that Trump Tower meeting.

The charges and countercharges have significantly muddied the waters of the Russia probe despite United States intelligence agencies having substantially confirmed that Moscow had puts its finger on the scale to help Trump win the 2016 elections, something Russian President Vladimir Putin appeared to publicly confirm in Helsinki with Trump standing next to him.

The New York Times reported last month that Mueller has been reviewing Trump's tweets as part of his probe into whether the President obstructed justice.

One of Trump's current attorneys, Jay Sekulow, agreed Sunday with Trump's tweet during an appearance on ABC's "This Week".

"And we've seen 1.4 million documents, we've provided 32 witness interviews of any type of collusion on behalf of the president and the Russians".

Trump's lawyers also eventually admitted that Trump Jr. initial statement claiming the meeting had been about adoptions and nothing more had been dictated by President Trump himself from Air Force One.

Trump fired Comey in May 2017, several days after the then-FBI director told Congress that he could not comment on whether there was evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

"There are federal statutes that prohibit receiving something of value from a foreign national, foreign entity, or foreign government", he continued.

If Trump declines the interview and Mueller subpoenas Trump to testify, it would spark a constitutional fight in the courts, Sekulow said. Giuliani has stalled on whether the president will sit for an interview with Mueller, attempted to move the goalposts by emphasizing that "collusion is not a crime", and even employed dramatic facial expressions to suggest that it's Mueller's team, not the White House, that's being kooky and unreasonable. "They can also cause War!"

"And I'm going to say now on the record, they will never find any because there isn't any", he said.

"Emin just called and asked me to contact you with something very interesting", Goldstone wrote to Trump Jr.in early June 2016.

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