How Trump acts during a deposition, according to lawyer who questioned him
06 August, 2018, 07:11
President Donald Trump is concerned about whether his son Donald Trump Jr. might have exposure in the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation, leading to his increasingly frenzied public agitation over Robert Mueller, sources close to the White House tell CNN.
Trump tweeted that his son met with a Kremlin-connected lawyer to collect information about his political opponent.
"Sir, I was a lawyer for the Obama campaign, transition and White House", Eisen wrote in response to Trump's early Sunday tweet.
In addition, If Trump is subpoenaed by a special counsel investigating contacts between the 2016 Trump election campaign and Russian Federation, his lawyers will attempt to quash it in court, one of Trump's lawyers said on Sunday. Trump wrote. "They are very unsafe & sick!"
Email released by Donald Jr. himself showed he had been keen on the meeting because his father's campaign was purportedly being offered potentially damaging information on Clinton.
It was Trump's most direct acknowledgement that the motive for the June 2016 meeting was to get dirt on Hillary Clinton, his Democratic rival for the presidency.
"The question is what law, statute or rule or regulation has been violated and nobody has pointed to one", Sekulow said Sunday.
To make it looks like there's something new here, the Times cites old statements, not by President Trump but by members of his team, that the meeting focused on subjects other than opposition research. In that statement, he falsely claimed that the session attended by his eldest son and other high-ranking campaign aides was "primarily" about the adoption of Russian children.
Trump has recently come under fire for his own role in the 2016 meeting, as former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen claimed that the president knew about the meeting in advance - something Trump has previously denied.
Rep. Adam Schiff of California, the senior Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Sunday he believes the president is so busy worrying about allegations of conspiracy and collusion against the Trump campaign that he refuses to concede that the Russians interfered in the 2016 election at all.
"The question is how would it be illegal?" "In fact, it never happened on our watch and if it had our reaction would have been 'call the Federal Bureau of Investigation, ' not, 'if it's what you say it is, I love it'".
The lawyer told Stephanopoulos that discussions over whether the president should sit for an interview with Mueller are "ongoing".
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.
This is another reason why Trump shouldn't meet with Mueller. As an analysis by the University of Kentucky Election Law Society clearly explains, under us law, "any contribution by a foreign national to the campaign of an American candidate for any election, state or national, is illegal", and any campaign of a candidate who accepts foreign aid is committing a crime.
When asked to describe Trump's demeanor during his 1996 deposition, Zeitz said, "Donald was the Donald you see now".
Trump's attacks on the special counsel's investigation have been rebuffed by Republican leaders in Congress who have expressed support for Mueller.
