Trump insists son is innocent, slams 'witch hunt'

Ellis Copeland | 13 July, 2017, 07:14

The Associated Press also reported on Wednesday that Trump and White House officials feel emboldened by attacking the press, and that for the president, "most of his ire [has been] directed at the media" in recent days.

Emails published by Trump Jnr on Tuesday showed that Goldstone promised the lawyer would bring from Russian Federation "some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary [Clinton]".

The damaging information was "part of Russian Federation and its government support for Mr. Trump", the email to Donald Trump Jr. said.

Nevertheless, the correspondence between him and Rob Goldstone, a publicist who arranged the meeting, could provide fodder for USA investigators probing whether Trump's campaign colluded with the Kremlin. Trump Jnr denies wrongdoing. "So what I keep hearing about that he would have rather had Trump, I think 'probably not, ' because when I want a strong military, you know she wouldn't have spent the money on military", he said. But some Republicans said the email contact and the meeting raised a red flag.

President Donald Trump stayed relatively quiet on Twitter Tuesday as controversy surrounded his son, Donald Trump Jr.

On Wednesday, Peskov said Veselnitskaya does not represent the interests of Russian Federation and the government will not investigate her.

The younger Trump released his email chain with Goldstone after The New York Times told him that it was about to publish the emails. The Times report cited anonymous sources.

The emails do not appear to provide evidence of illegal activity but legal experts say Trump Jr could run into trouble if investigators find he aided a criminal action, such as hacking into Democratic computer networks, or violated campaign-finance laws by accepting gifts from foreign entities.

Trump and Putin met last week at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, for more than two hours.

The media storm surrounding the meeting was an attempt "by serious people to make a mountain out of a molehill", the Kremlin's top diplomat said after meeting his Belgian counterpart, Didier Reynerds, in Brussels. "@WashTimes (Washington Times) states, 'Democrats have willfully used Moscow disinformation to influence the presidential election against Donald Trump, '" said Trump.

The Agalarovs met the Trumps when they hosted the 2013 Miss Universe beauty pageant in Moscow and claimed to have remained in touch earlier this year.

Donald Jr. had not previously disclosed the meeting. "I mean whatever they got about Russian Federation they need to get out".

Agalarov added that "I really don't know Rob Goldstone well". Although the publication hasn't been a big fan of Trump's, it is also opposed and deeply skeptical of liberals who are opposed to Trump.
