Sen. Chuck Grassley: What Was Russian Lawyer Doing in the US?

Trump Attorney Marc Kasowitz Makes Statement After Comey Senate Testimony

Trump Attorney Marc Kasowitz Makes Statement After Comey Senate Testimony

"My son is a wonderful young man", Trump began in answer to the inevitable question about Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer claiming to have potentially damning information on Hillary Clinton at the height of the 2016 campaign.

The remarks in Paris during a joint news conference with French President Emmanuel Macron came even though Trump's own Federal Bureau of Investigation pick has said the authorities should be alerted to requests for such meetings during a campaign and even after Donald Trump Jr. said he would rethink his own conduct in agreeing to the gathering in the first place.

President Donald Trump on Thursday defended his son's meeting with a Russian lawyer, characterizing it as standard campaign practice and maintaining that "nothing happened" as a result of the June 2016 sit-down. "Not a government lawyer, but a Russian lawyer", he said.

A lawyer for Donald Trump Jr. did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.

On May 12, Acting United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York Joon H. Kim, filling in after U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara was sacked by President Trump on March 11, announced a settlement of $5,896,333.65 with Prevezon. He took a meeting with a Russian lawyer. "This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump". Washington is scrambling. Vice President Pence's office quickly said he didn't know anything about the meeting and noted that he wasn't even in the campaign then.

"I had been reading about scandals that people were probably underreporting for a long time, so maybe it was something that had to do with one of those things", Trump Jr. told Hannity on Tuesday.

The person who made the first sighting believed it to be four but it is easy to make a mistake she said. One of the lions was killed instantly while the second one was left wounded.

Trump and Macron will be holding a joint news conference and will later have dinner together at the Eiffel Tower.

Trump said cryptically: "Something could happen with respect to the Paris accord".

The ice appeared to be thawing last week during a G-20 summit in Germany, when the two were seen laughing and Macron slapping Trump on both shoulders as he repositioned himself for a group photo. Trump described the U.S.

"You know, you're in such great shape. beautiful", Trump told 64-year-old Brigitte Macron, who was sporting a white Louis Vuitton dress and stiletto heels, during their visit to the tomb.

And as the Trumps departed for a pre-dinner break at his overnight residence, Macron could be seen giving him a chummy slap on the back.
