Trump Changed His Story Again About His Son's Trump Tower Russia Meeting

The president defended his son in a tweet on Sunday

One part of Mueller's inquiry and congressional investigations has focused on a meeting months before the November election in Trump Tower in NY between Russian officials, Donald Trump Jr., the president's eldest son, and other campaign aides.

Trump unleashed particularly fury at reports that he was anxious about the Trump Tower meeting attended by Donald Trump Jr. and other senior campaign officials. Mueller is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible coordination with Trump campaign aides.

He accused Mr Mueller of running "one of the most irregular investigations in US history". Trump has repeatedly denied collusion with Russian Federation or any other wrongdoing.

What did President Trump say?

Donald Jr. said later he realised the meeting was primarily aimed at lobbying against the 2012 Magnitsky sanctions law, which led to Moscow denying Americans the right to adopt Russian orphans.

The pilot and four passengers who were killed when a small plane crashed in a Santa Ana parking lot have been identified. The parking lot is shared by a CVS pharmacy, a Wells Fargo Bank branch, and a Michaels art-supply store among others.


When the source cited by CNN expressed apparent concern about the oxygen the president is supplying to the topic, that source very well could have been expressing concern about the obstruction element.

On Sunday, Trump tweeted, "Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower". At various times, they defended the meeting by claiming it was exclusively about worldwide adoption, said that they were doing standard opposition research, and even argued that they didn't get anything out of it so how can it be illegal?

He concluded by further distancing himself from the meeting his son arranged, writing, "I did not know about it!"

Why does his tweet matter?

Mr Trump also tweeted about the fires in California, which have destroyed dozens of homes and killed at least seven people. She also posited that the president's claim on Twitter that he was not aware of the Trump Tower meeting could be inessential to Mueller's probe in the light of the "false" statement from previous year that claimed the meeting's objective was to discuss the adoption of Russian children.

Commenting on the appointment of Laguarta Nooyi said, " Ramon Laguarta is exactly the right person to build on our success". Earlier this year, Indra Nooyi was named the first independent female director of the International Cricket Council (ICC).


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. He also released the email exchange that brought about the meeting.

The Republican president had previously said the meeting was about the adoption of Russian children by Americans.

This was initially denied by Mr Trump's team, but his lawyers later confirmed that he had in fact dictated his son's statement.

Why is the Trump Tower meeting controversial?

He added: "It's called opposition research or even research into your opponent".

But here's the thing: This is a tweet about how the Trump Tower meeting was totally fine - nothing illegal to see here. While originally Trump, a Republican, said the meeting was about adoptions, on Sunday he said on Twitter that it was about getting information on his election opponent, Democrat Hillary Clinton.
