Trump just made two problematic admissions about the Trump Tower meeting

WASHINGTON DC- JULY 05 U.S. President Donald Trump and his son Donald Trump Jr. walk out onto the North Portico of the White House while departing on a trip to Wyoming to attend a Make America Great rally

President Trump has admitted for the first time that the goal of his son's meeting with a Russian lawyer before the 2016 elections was to gather information about his opponent, Hillary Clinton.

But on Sunday, Trump tweeted the meeting discussed information and getting dirt on his election opponent, Hillary Clinton. But he has said since that no "meaningful information" was offered and the meeting focused mostly on the issue of adoptions of Russian children.

The Trump Tower meeting also included Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and his campaign chairman at the time, Paul Manafort, who is on trial over tax and bank fraud charges after being indicted by Mueller. Others have said the meeting could provide clues to a broader conspiracy by Trump officials with Russians.

Trump's morning Twitter post was his most direct statement on the objective of the meeting, though his son and others have said it was to gather damaging information on the Democratic candidate. 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.

President Donald Trump has been urged to stop tweeting about the 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Trump's top advisers and several Russians, a source familiar with discussions tells CNN.

"I don't represent Don Jr., but I will tell you I - I have no knowledge at all of Don Jr. being told that he's a target of any investigation and I have no knowledge of him being interviewed by the special counsel", Sekulow said.

- President Donald Trump's legal team is preparing to respond to special counsel Robert Mueller regarding the possibility of an interview, Rudy Giuliani told CNN Monday.

'The Fake News hates me saying that they are the Enemy of the People only because they know it's TRUE, ' he tweeted.

While "collusion" is not mentioned in USA criminal statutes, Mueller is investigating whether anyone associated with Trump coordinated with the Russians, which could result in criminal charges if they entered into a conspiracy to break the law, including through cyberhacking or interfering with the election.

Slamming the investigation as "the most one-sided witch hunt in the history of our country", Trump added: "Why aren't Mueller and the 17 Angry Democrats looking at the meetings concerning the Fake Dossier and all of the lying that went on in the FBI and DOJ?".

The Post reported a few weeks later that Trump Jr.'s initial misleading statement had been "dictated" by Trump.

Lawyers described the statement as "short but accurate", according to The Post.

They later reversed course in a memo to Mueller and said Trump was indeed behind the statement that omitted the prospect of collecting dirt on Clinton.

Sekulow said on Sunday his erroneous denial about Trump's involvement was a mistake based on "bad information".

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.
