Trump Personally Dictated Misleading Statement About Son's Meeting With Russian Lawyer

Trump knew, by the time he reportedly dictated this statement on behalf of his son, that the Russian Federation investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller was well under way. But emails published by the New York Times-and Trump Jr. himself-later showed that the initial statement was misleading: At the center of the meeting was not adoptions, but a promise of damaging information on Hillary Clinton-a prospect Trump Jr. appeared eager to receive.

Trump Jr. initially claimed in his July 8 statement that the June 9, 2016 meeting was about the adoption of Russian children by US citizens.

However, now Washington Post reports that Trump Jr.'s disclosure on Twitter was their way to avoid any future catastrophe. The problem of the Trump Tower meeting was known to Trump's inner circle after lawyers for Jared Kushner uncovered it during a security clearance review and it was debated back and forth among Trump senior staff about how best to handle the meeting. But one person without egg on her face is White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who pleaded ignorance when asked repeatedly about the president's involvement.

"This was. unnecessary", one of Trump's advisers reportedly told the Post.

As a counter-measure to the Times expose, Trump Jnr.
