Donald Trump Signs Russia Sanctions

Donald Trump Signs Russia Sanctions

But the president changed the plan and "personally dictated a statement" in which Mr Trump Jr said he and the lawyer had primarily discussed an adoption programme, according to the Post.

The White House and Donald Trump, Jr. largely dismissed concerns surrounding the new revelations, casting it as an attempt to glean opposition research and claiming that no useful information was obtained.

White House spokeperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders, while addressing a press briefing on Tuesday, said that statement was not "misleading" and that "there is no inaccuracy in the statement".

In reality, Trump Jr. had enthusiastically agreed to attend the meeting after being promised damaging information on Clinton as part of the Russian government's efforts to help his father's campaign.

President Trump's lawyer responded to the Washington Post report by calling it "fake news, misinformed, incorrect and of no consequence" in a statement to NBC News.

In a statement to ABC channel, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov had said, "I think this retaliation is long, long overdue".

The Guardian reports that Richard Painter, ethics lawyer under George W. Bush (lol), says that Trump's involvement very much constitutes an obstruction of justice.

It is believed they've been laid down as punishment for interfering with the 2016 presidential election.

Four days after Trump Jnr issued his initial, inaccurate statement on July 8 about the 2016 meeting, his father suggested to reporters he was largely in the dark about it, and assumed his son and the son's lawyers wrote the statement.

"When you put out a misleading statement it's gonna be hard to convince people to stop looking at other things", Senator Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.) said.

"The president was not - did not - draft the response", Trump's attorney Jay Sekulow said on "Meet the Press" in an interview July 16. "When they do, and it has bipartisan support, Congress will replace this form of sanctions with another one that gives the president a national security waiver or some form of more wiggle room that is more customary".
