I am on the road at the moment but perhaps I just speak to Emin first. Seems we have some time and if it's what you say I love it especially later in the summer." On June 9, 2016, Trump Jr. met with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, who, according to the New York Times, had promised to deliver the Clinton information. Both have said that nothing substantive regarding Trump’s opponent in the presidential race or the campaign was discussed.

Wall Street Journal's Editorial Board Urges Trump To Embrace ‘Radical Transparency’ On Russia Matters

The Wall Street Journal’s Editorial Board on Monday suggested that the Trump family embrace “radical transparency” in dealing with its Russia troubles. The Trump family’s Russia troubles continue to mount, and, as the reports pile up, it appears to have adopted a strategy that involves denials followed by rolling disclosures and defenses.That approach has been in full force since the New York Times revealed that, in June 2016, President Trump's son Donald Trump Jr. met with a Russian lawyer said to have damaging information about Hillary Clinton.The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board on Monday suggested a different game plan—“radical transparency.”It writes, “Even if the ultimate truth of this tale is merely that Don Jr. is a political dunce who took a meeting that went nowhere—the best case—the Trumps made it appear as if they have something to hide. They have created the appearance of a conspiracy that on the evidence Don Jr. lacks the wit to concoct. And they handed their opponents another of the swords that by now could arm a Roman legion.”The board goes on to offer a wake-up call about the very good chance that between the special counsel and the House and Senate investigations, “Everything that is potentially damaging to the Trumps will come out.”It urges changing the current strategy, “to one with the best chance of saving his Presidency: radical transparency.”The board suggests the Trump family, “Release everything to the public ahead of the inevitable leaks,” noting that “Whatever short-term political damage this might cause couldn’t be worse than the death by a thousand cuts of selective leaks, often out of context, from political opponents in Congress or the special counsel’s office.”Thus far, both the president and Trump Jr. have taken a decidedly defensive stance.In responding to the Times’ initial reports, Trump Jr. tweeted, “Obviously I'm the first person on a campaign to ever take a meeting to hear info about an opponent...went nowhere but had to listen.”About a week later the president said via Twitter, “Most politicians would have gone to a meeting like the one Don jr attended in order to get info on an opponent. That's politics!”

FBI director nominee disagrees with Trump's witch hunt claim

President Donald Trump’s pick to head the FBI, Christopher Wray, on Wednesday said he would refuse to pledge loyalty to Trump and rejected his description of the probe into Russian election meddling as a “witch hunt.” My son Donald did a good job last night. He was open, transparent and innocent. This is the greatest Witch Hunt in political history. Sad!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 12, 2017 Wray, nominated by Trump on June 7 to replace the fired James Comey as Federal Bureau of Investigation director, firmly sought to establish independence from the Republican president and even said it would be “highly unlikely” that he would agree to meet him in a one-on-one situation. Wray appeared at his U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing amid an uproar in Washington over 2016 emails released on Tuesday involving the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr. The emails showed the president’s son agreeing last year to meet a woman he was told was a Russian government lawyer who might have damaging information about Democratic White House rival Hillary Clinton as part of Moscow’s official support for his father. Wray deflected specific questions from Republican Senator Lindsey Graham about the president’s son’s emails, but said, “Any threats or effort to interfere with our election from any nation-state or any non-state actor is the kind of thing the FBI would want to know.” Trump’s son did not notify the FBI and wrote that “I love it” of the Russian’s offer of information about Clinton. If you’re still foggy on Trump Jnr story, this piece—by White House ethics lawyers for Obama and W. Bush—is great.https://t.co/KduCRX5Bnw— Benjamin Law (@mrbenjaminlaw) July 12, 2017 Wray, who appeared on target to win confirmation, also said he had no reason to doubt the U.S. intelligence community’s finding that Russia interfered with the election to help Trump get elected in part by hacking and releasing emails damaging to Clinton. In the aftermath of Comey’s firing, the Justice Department named Robert Mueller, himself a former FBI director, to serve as special counsel looking into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential race to help Trump get elected and potential collusion between Moscow and Trump associates. Trump fired Comey on May 9 and later cited the “Russia thing” as his reason. Trump has often called the Russia probe a “witch hunt” and the Russia matter has dogged Trump’s first six months in office. “I do not consider Director Mueller to be on a witch hunt,” Wray told Republican Graham. Wray and Comey served together in the Justice Department under Republican former President George W. Bush, and both worked on the government’s case in the Enron Corp fraud scandal in the early to mid-2000s. Wray said he was “very committed” to supporting Mueller in the special counsel investigation, calling him “the consummate straight shooter and somebody I have enormous respect for.”

A team working under special counsel Robert Mueller has reportedly set its sight on Donald Trump Jr.’s controversial meeting with a Russian lawyer last year. According to BuzzFeed News, a “source familiar with the investigation said that prosecutors have been trying to determine exactly what information was provided and are scrutinizing Trump Jr.’s statements about the meeting.” The unnamed person also told the media outlet that another area of interest is “his mindset when he met with the Russian attorney on June 9.” Last month, Trump Jr. released a chain of emails setting up the session, and while he had initially indicated the focus was supposed to be on adoptions, he eventually admitted to going in the hopes of learning potentially incriminating information about Hillary Clinton, notes USA Today.He has since maintained that nothing substantive came out of the meeting. However, lawyers familiar with Trump Jr.'s case indicated to Politico that the emails were a “smoking gun.” According to the media outlet, Peter Zeidenberg, former Justice Department prosecutor, called it “extremely damaging” and that it “certainly shows an intent to collude with Russian government.” Nevertheless, a Forbes column has pointed out that “collusion, while both unseemly and inviting microscopic and intense scrutiny, is not a criminal act.”

Report: Paul Manafort Told Investigators About Trump Jr.’s Meeting With Russian Lawyer

President Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort is said to be the person who blew the whistle about the meeting Donald Trump Jr. had arranged with a Russian lawyer. President Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort is said to be the person who blew the whistle about the meeting Donald Trump Jr. had arranged with a Russian lawyer. According to Bloomberg, “Manafort had alerted authorities to a controversial meeting on June 9, 2016, involving [President] Trump’s son Donald Jr., other campaign representatives and a Russian lawyer promising damaging information on Hillary Clinton, according to people familiar with the matter.” The New York Times broke the story about the meeting last month, adding that Manafort and White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, who also attended, “disclosed the meeting, though not its content, in confidential government documents described to The New York Times.” Trump Jr. has since admitted to the session but claimed that nothing substantive came out of it. The detail about Manafort has emerged as investigators seem to be focusing in on him as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing probe into Russia’s efforts to influence the 2016 election and potential ties with the Trump campaign.The Washington Post reported Wednesday that Manafort’s Virginia home was unexpectedly raided by authorities in the early morning hours of July 26, with numerous financial and other documents being seized with a search warrant. It may be part of a money trail Mueller and his team appear to be following in the probe including the possibility that Manafort may have laundered funds from Russia. A lawyer for President Trump has since reportedly blasted the home raid; according to Fox News, John Dowd said in an email that it was an “extraordinary invasion of privacy.”The outlet adds, “The email reflects Trump’s legal team moving to protect the president, amid speculation that the raid could be part of a broader effort to squeeze Manafort for information on Trump.”

Storm rages over Trump jr emails

Donald Trump jr claims he did not tell his father about his meeting with a Russian lawyer last year. It’s a denial central to the current political storm. Reaction to Trump jr’s email chain showing him keen to accept “sensitive information” on Hillary Clinton from a Russian national has been swift from all sides. Democrat Adam Schiff: “Here I think you have quite direct evidence that the Russian government had damaging information, communicated that to the campaign and all of the campaign denials of whether we knew that was going on, or whether the Russians had any involvement, whether the Russians wanted to help his campaign, obviously now have to be viewed in a completely different context.” But even some Republicans such as Senator Lindsay Graham of South Carolina now want to see Trump jr questioned by the House intelligence committee over possible collusion between Russia and the 2016 Trump presidential campaign team. “There is no evidence yet that the Russians did help them, but that requires further inquiry, but the fact that we are knowing this now, in July, really is disturbing. I mean whatever they got about Russia they need to get out.” Others such as known critic Minority Leader Chuck Schumer are questioning whether President Donald Trump is fit for purpose Between these revelations and the president’s horrendous handling of the meeting with Mr. Putin, it’s clear that Congress needs to step in and sanction Russia and be a roadblock to lifting sanctions because clearly the president will not be tough with Mr. Putin as he should be.” Meanwhile President Trump continues to deny any collusion and President Putin has denied any interference. Critics may be rubbing their hands in anticipation but lawyers for the son hope it the saga is just a demonstration of political inexperience.
