Trump had earlier claimed that the meeting was about the adoption of Russian children, reportedReuters, a statement contradicted by Trump Jr, who said that the objective was to gather information on Clinton.
"I had bad information at that time and made a mistake in my statement", Sekulow said on ABC's "This Week".
The meeting has come under intense scrutiny from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating whether members of the Trump campaign coordinated with a Russian effort to sway the 2016 election in the Republican's favour.
Sekulow added that he has "no knowledge" of whether federal investigators are probing one of the attendees of the meeting, Donald Trump Jr., even as critics charge that the secretive discussion might have run afoul of campaign finance law.
