Jimmy Kimmel: Donald Trump Issues Robert Durst-Worthy Tweet Over Weekend

Trump attacks report that he’s worried about son’s exposure to Mueller inquiry

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

The president is calling "fake news" on the reports saying he's anxious about his son's legal exposure on this matter, but in the meantime, there are lingering questions about this, along with Michael Cohen's claim that Trump Sr. personally approved the meeting before it happened.

Trump caused a major media uproar over the last few days, not only because he admitted Donald Trump Jr. took the meeting to get dirt on his political opponents, but also because the two repeatedly denied that the meeting was held for that goal. "I did not know about it!" he tweeted.

In June 2016, Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and campaign chairman Paul Manafort met with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya. Ahead of it, music promoter Rob Goldstone sent an email to Trump Jr. saying, "The Crown prosecutor of Russian Federation met with his father Aras this morning and in their meeting offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary (Clinton) and her dealings with Russian Federation and would be very useful to your father".

Trump Jr respond.ed "I love it", when first offered the political "dirt" on Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee.

His newest tweet is the closest he has come to admitting the meeting's goal was to seek dirt on Clinton from the Russians.

Emails arranging the meeting showed that Rob Goldstone, a former music publicist with ties to both Trump and Moscow, told Trump Jr. he had "official documents and information that would implicate Hillary [Clinton] and her dealings with Russian Federation and would be very useful to your father", which was "part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump".

The Post had reported that the statement to The Times was dictated by the president, though at the time Trump's lawyers denied his involvement.

Kimmel began with the recent admission that Don Jr. did knowingly meet with the Russians trying to get information on Hillary Clinton.

Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen has claimed Trump knew about the meeting ahead of time.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating USA intelligence findings that Russians conspired to sway the election in Trump's favour.

"The question is how will it be illegal?"

Sekulow also noted on Sunday that he himself had given a misleading statement a year ago when, on "This Week" and in other media appearances, he said Trump had nothing to do with the misleading statement given to the New York Times.

There are few people in the world more convinced of Donald Trump's greatness and brilliance than Donald Trump Jr.

"I am comfortable in saying this: if there was evidence, strong evidence of collusion, I guarantee you it would have been leaked by now", the Republican senator said. "They are very risky & sick!"

In another, he expressed frustration with both the media and Mueller's probe.

Mr. Sekulow also said if Mr. Mueller were to subpoena Mr. Trump, the question over whether a sitting president could be subpoenaed by a special counsel would likely go before the Supreme Court since the question has never been tested in the courts.
