So over the weekend, President Trump tweeted - we think he was most likely responding to a Washington Post article - that said that he was privately concerned that his son Donald Trump Jr. might be in legal peril because of that Trump Tower meeting that happened back in June of 2016. "I did not know about it!" he tweeted.
One part of the inquiry has focussed on a June 9, 2016, meeting at Trump Tower in NY between Donald Jr., other campaign aides and a group of Russians.
On Sunday, the President offered his most direct acknowledgment to date that his son, along with campaign chairman Paul Manafort and son-in-law Jared Kushner, met with a Russian lawyer to get damaging information on Clinton.
Quickly, though, that explanation fell apart, and we learned that Trump Jr had actually been promised harmful information about Democrats, including Hillary Clinton.
Mr. Sekulow also said if Mr. Mueller were to subpoena Mr. Trump, the question over whether a sitting president could be subpoenaed by a special counsel would likely go before the Supreme Court since the question has never been tested in the courts.
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.
Asked on Sunday why he had denied the president's involvement, one of Trump's lawyers Jay Sekulow told ABC that he had "bad information at that point". The self-contradictory and legally questionable nature of Trump's claims prompted his own advisers to beg him to stop tweeting about the incident.
Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon have suggested that Trump, at a minimum, knew of the meeting soon after it took place.
President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani is continuing to stall on giving special counsel Robert Mueller's team any clear answers on whether the President will sit for questioning in Mueller's Russian Federation probe, according to the Washington Post.
President Donald Trump is renewing his attacks on two of his favorite targets: the special counsel Russian Federation probe and the news media. And this is what President Trump said. The veracity of which is challenged by campaign finance law that states it is illegal for a foreign national to "directly or indirectly, make a contribution or a donation of money or other thing of value".
"There is a moron on Fox claiming I chain smoke cigarettes worrying about the President's tweets".
Sen. Rubio drew the ire of conservatives and Trump supporters in July when he said that the Federal Bureau of Investigation did nothing wrong by spying on Trump's campaign advisor, Carter Page.
What did President Trump say?
Giuliani, who said his team is preparing a counterreport, said he believes Mueller and his lawyers "want to wrap it up before September, or at the beginning of September". Dowd subsequently resigned from the Trump team.
"I'd like to remind Mr. Trump that that ruling only says you can't be prosecuted while in office", Rubin explained. "They can also cause War!" Trump wrote. "They are very risky & sick!"
It's unclear whether Trump's latest admission will affect Mueller's probe in any way.
