'Complete fabrication' he's anxious his son in legal trouble in Russian Federation probe

The president defended his son in a tweet on Sunday

Regarding the possibility that Donald Trump, Jr. violated campaign laws, Rubin wrote that Trump, Jr.'s use of the words "I love it" in an email about the "dirt-finding meeting" at Trump Tower is the "most powerful" piece of evidence against him.

Sekulow also said that Trump has not decided whether he would voluntarily sit for an interview with U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who was appointed to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election and any possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Moscow officials.

President Donald Trump singles out the media during his rally on August 2, 2018 at the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza in Wilkes Barre, Pa.

He accused Mr Mueller of running "one of the most irregular investigations in US history".

What did President Trump say?

U.S. President Donald Trump, in the midst of a working vacation, unleashed a new barrage of attacks on the national news media Sunday, saying it was "very unsafe & sick!" They cited multiple unnamed sources.

"This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics - and it went nowhere", Trump said on Twitter.

"The Fake News hates me saying that they are the Enemy of the People only because they know it's TRUE", Trump tweeted from his Bedminster golf resort in New Jersey.

Why does his tweet matter?

Trump's tweet, however, conflicts with a statement that Trump Jr. released to the New York Times in July 2017, as the newspaper prepared to report about the meeting.

Trump had earlier claimed that the meeting was about the adoption of Russian children, reported Reuters, a statement contradicted by Trump Jr, who said that the goal was to gather information on Clinton.

Sekulow acknowledged that the public explanation for the meeting has changed but insisted that the White House has been very clear with the special counsel's office.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has denied allegations by USA intelligence agencies that his government meddled and Trump denies collusion, describing the Mueller investigation as a political witch hunt that should be shut down.

His comments were part of a broader Twitter rant Sunday, which also included a tweet falsely claiming the press "purposely cause great division & distrust".

The admission is a significant departure from Trump's previous statements regarding the controversial meeting with a Kremlin-linked lawyer.

He added: "It's called opposition research or even research into your opponent". When asked by host George Stephanopoulos how a meeting arranged to get information on an opponent could be legal, Sekulow responded: "Well, the question is, how would it be illegal?" Veselnitskaya wanted the meeting so they could talk about lifting Russian adoptions and possibly lifting sanctions if Trump were to win the election, while Trump Jr. expected useful information against Clinton.
