Secret Service denies vetting Trump Jr meeting

Postado Julho 17, 2017

President Trump's re-election campaign has more than doubled its legal spending over the last several months as the Russian Federation investigations ramp up, according to new FEC filings.

The pair were two of Mr Trump's most trusted campaign officials, and Mr Kushner - also the president's son-in-law - became part of the White House inner circle after the inauguration.

Separately, on CBS' Face the Nation, Warner said there were "trolls", or paid individuals who worked for Russian services, who tried to interfere in the election and disseminate fake news.

A celebrated actor and activist has taken to poetry to try and explain the precarious legal position Donald Trump Jr finds himself in.

Mr Goldstone suggested in an email that "people had information concerning alleged wrongdoing by Democratic Party front runner Hillary Clinton in her dealings with Russia", Mr Futerfas said.

"Nothing came of it". The other possibility, I suppose, is that Donald Trump Sr. - which is to say, the then-candidate and now-president - had some kind of direct role in this meeting after all?

"Nothing in that meeting that would have taken place, even if it was about the topic of an opposition research paper from a Russian lawyer, is illegal or a violation of the law, " Sekulow said on "Fox News Sunday, " a point he repeated several times.

The department said that Veselnitskaya was allowed to enter the United States on multiple occasions between September 2015 and February 2016 under a "Significant Public Benefit Parole" document requested by the Justice Department so she could participate in a court case for a client.

Jay Sekulow may be an attorney for Donald Trump, but he's been a primary media advocate on behalf of Trump, Jr., presumably because of his ability to lie and obfuscate on cue.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Mr Trump had only learned of the meeting "in the last couple of days".

There are now several congressional panels and a federal special counsel investigating allegations Russian Federation meddled in the election.

Senator Mark Warner of Virginia, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said he wanted to speak with those who attended the meeting.

The Kremlin said it "did not know" who Ms Veselnitskaya was.
