Secret Service Fires Back at Trump Lawyer's Claim about Russia Meeting

"This may not be the smoking gun, but it may ultimately lead to that", he said. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee, later in the same program.

President Trump's lawyer sought to distance his client Sunday from an increasingly scrutinized meeting Donald Trump Jr. took with Russians who may have links to the Kremlin - even as he insisted the meeting was perfectly appropriate during a USA presidential campaign.

Donald Trump Jr. last week published his email messages arranging a meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya after he was promised damaging information on Clinton.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Monday that the focus of a 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer was adoption policy, despite President Trump's own tweet on the subject.

"I think, quite frankly, it's probably against the law in addition to being inappropriate", Christie said.

The tweet supporting his son came after he denied any of his aids involved with Russians in conspiring against his Democratic presidential election counterpart Hillary Clinton during the hard-fought election past year. And before that meeting, Trump Jr. purportedly learned of the Kremlin's involvement in this transmission of information. But there was nothing illegal to cover up.

The most generous side of looking at the meeting is to consider the Russian use of a "useful fool" to meet their gains, Hayden said. "It was in days before leading up to this matter". "That's really important. Number two, they learned that the Trump team would not report it ... they would be watching for increased counterintelligence activity after the meeting, if the Trump team reported it to the Federal Bureau of Investigation".

According to NBC News, a lobbyist who was once a Soviet counter-intelligence officer participated in the meeting.

"With all of its phony unnamed sources & highly slanted & even fraudulent reporting, #Fake News is DISTORTING DEMOCRACY in our country", Trump told his nearly 40-million Twitter followers. It was the first confirmed private meeting between the Russians and Trump's team.

Among the ongoing investigations into Russia's alleged interference in the US presidential election is a probe into Trump's team's links with Moscow-something the president has repeatedly denied.

Conway also maintained that Clinton is "one of the only people" who firmly believes in collusion between Trump's campaign and the Russian government.

"Almost every week we find another thread that we have to pull on", said Sen. "That is my extrapolation", Warner said.

"The thing about this investigation is it feels like nearly every week we find another thread that we have to pull on", he added. You know, things are going a million miles an hour. "Again, this is before the Russian Federation mania - this is before they were building this up in the press".

Sekulow put the responsibility for the initial incomplete response regarding last summer's meeting squarely on the shoulders of the president's son. "And that's very, very significant".
