Trump Tweets ‘That’s Politics!’ About Son’s Meeting With Russian Lawyer

Though he is not Donald Trump Jr.’s lawyer, Sekulow has become one of the most high-profile defenders of both Trumps’ conduct, appearing regularly for television interviews multiple times a week from Nashville, where he is located.On Sunday, President Trump tweeted that what media is propagating about his son’s relation ties is outright “fake”. That payment was made 13 days before it was publicly revealed that Futerfas would represent Trump’s eldest son in the Russian Federation investigations.On Sunday, President Donald Trump’s lawyer Jay Sekulow stated that Secret Service could have prevented the meeting with the Russian lawyers from taking place if it was nefarious in nature.The meeting raised doubts whether Trump’s aides colluded with Russian Federation to join the presidential election – to help and frustrate #Hillary Clinton – and whether they were close to their contacts overseas.A new Washington Post-ABC News poll said that 60 percent of those it surveyed believe the younger Trump’s meeting with the Russian lawyer was inappropriate.Trump Jr., the president’s eldest son, did not mention Akhmetshin’s presence when he released a series of emails about the meeting earlier this week.Donald Trump’s campaign committee paid $50,000 to the firm of a lawyer representing Donald Trump Jr 13 days before emails relating to alleged links to Russian Federation were publicly released. Mark Warner, D-Va., said on “Meet The Press”.The president’s defensive stance about his son was in keeping with what he has said for a week about the meeting.A Federal Elections Commission filing released Saturday, first reported by The Daily Beast, shows the Trump campaign gave $50,000 to Futerfas’ law firm for “legal consulting” on June 27. “I think the thing that bothers me the most is that we seem to have a frenzy of people jumping to conclusions”.Caputo, a former top adviser to Donald Trump’s campaign with strong ties to Russian Federation, said at a press conference after his testimony that “there was absolutely not discussion of Russia” in the Trump campaign while he was there.The allegations have cast a cloud over Mr Trump administration since he took office.The meeting would not become public knowledge for almost another two weeks. Plus, Akhmetshin himself previously said there wasn’t even a security check.Trump Jr. responded in part, “if it’s what you say I love it especially later in the summer”.
