Trump Jr.'s Russian Federation meeting explanation came from his dad

US: Donald Trump signs Bill imposing curbs on Russia, says it is 'significantly flawed'

In response to New York Times reporting that Donald Trump Jr. met with a Russian lawyer during the campaign, President Donald Trump dictated a misleading statement for his son, The Washington Post reported Monday evening.

Sarah Sanders, White House Press Secretary, told a news conference on Tuesday: "He certainly didn't dictate (the statement), but. he weighed in, offered suggestion like any father would do".

President Donald Trump personally dictated the statement his son gave on his talks with a Russian lawyer during the election campaign, U.S. media report.

The statement said that Trump Jr. and other top members of the Trump campaign primarily discussed a Russian adoption program. Trump - through his lawyers - has cast himself as totally clueless about the meeting on June 9, 2016 between Trump Jr., campaign chairman Paul Manafort, son-in-law Jared Kushner, Goldstone, Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, Russian-American lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin, a translator and Ike Kaveladze, a senior vice president at the company founded by the Russian oligarch who initiated the meeting.

The Post says that the president's advisers fear now that the direct involvement of Donald Trump, in the declaration of his son, can put in a legal position to be unsafe.

Their initial inaccurate response proved to be incredibly damaging as the full, accurate details about the meeting and its participants trickled out.

That was, until Geoffrey Kondogbia somehow contrived to score the most unbelievably unnecessary own goal from distance. The ball was played into the midfielder who was standing just behind the centre circle in his own half.

According to the Post, Trump "overruled the consensus" of his advisers to be as transparent about the meeting as possible, which Wright said "demonstrates ill intent" on the president's part.

Trump, speaking before officers from Suffolk County Police Department in NY on efforts to combat the gang MS-13, urged officers Friday to be "rough" on suspects, as many officers standing behind the President cheered and clapped.

"It was... unnecessary", said the Post, an advisor to president on condition of anonymity.

Trump Jr. did not respond to the newspaper's comment requests, while his attorney said he and Trump Jr.

Trump's efforts to undercut the growing list of Russian investigations have come under scrutiny already after he fired the FBI director James Comey. Drafting a statement, he said, is "a communal situation that involved communications people and various lawyers". Air Force One took off from Germany shortly after 6 p.m., about noon in Washington.

President Donald Trump with sons Donald Jr. "I'm assuming that was between Mr. Donald Trump Jr., between Don Jr. and his lawyer". The fact that Trump assumed that he could engineer this mini-coverup and the truth would never get out, both about the meeting itself and about his role in misleading the public about it, shows just how deluded he is about how his own White House works. When you, as a White House staffer, continue to have to put up with the boss's unpredictable whims and furthering of unhelpful story lines (i.e. Russian Federation was on my mind when I fired FBI Director James B. Comey), it's liable to lead to this kind of leaking.
