  • Paul Manafort then advisor to Donald Trump's presidential campaign also attended the meeting with a Russian lawyer in June 2016

"We need dialogue with everybody", the president said.

The president has called the investigation a "witch hunt" and questioned the conclusion of U.S. intelligence agencies that Russia was behind the hacking and release of Democratic Party emails during the campaign. The push to get to the bottom of the Trump-Russia link is not, as the president has said, "fake news". "For me, this was opposition research" that he had hoped might yield "concrete evidence" against Clinton. He doesn't want that.

The president responded: "No, that I didn't know until a couple of days ago, when I heard about this".

In an interview to be aired on the Christian Broadcasting Network, Trump suggested Russian President Vladimir Putin would have preferred a Hillary Clinton presidency to his.

Veselnitskaya herself said that the only question she had gotten from Trump Jr. was whether she actually had any information as had been suggested in the email regarding Clinton's dealings with Russia, to which she said she did not.

"From day one I want fracking and everything else to get energy prices low and to create tremendous energy".

Trump's view is at odds with US intelligence assessments.

While others took issue with the way Trump described Jr. He would like Hillary where she wants to have windmills.

"What a beautiful mother you have", Trump continued, according to CNN.

"I think many people would have held that meeting", Trump told Reuters in an interview on Wednesday. What did it hope to gain from helping to put Trump into the world's most powerful post? That's what Putin doesn't like about me.

The Daily Beast dug up a 1989 Sydney Morning Herald article in which Goldstone says his favorite major sin to commit is gluttony.

"I think we get along very well and I think that's a good thing, that's not a bad thing". That's despite the fact that impeachment proceedings are usually lengthy.

"Now we have a President that's waiting to sign it. I have pen in hand so now it means something".

It wasn't to make America great again. His father, Aras, an Azerbaijani-Russian billionaire, was business partner to Trump for the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow.

None of the people who were willing to discuss the Russian offer of information - Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, the campaign manager, and Donald Trump's son-in-law and close adviser, Jared Kushner - seem to have had the slightest awareness of this rather obvious danger.

"Whoa, look at this", Trump said after being introduced to the two. "And he said no, I did not", said Trump.

The lawmakers spoke one day after Donald Trump Jr. disclosed on Twitter a series of emails that revealed his eagerness to hear negative material on Clinton from a Russian lawyer. He also said that he didn't fault his son for attending.

He backed his son's decision to go ahead with the meeting. "The Trump that you see on TV is very different than the real Trump", Putin told reporters at the G20 in Germany.

The FBI, under the supervision of special prosecutor and former FBI Director Robert Mueller, is currently investigating whether Trump's team actively colluded with Russian officials to influence the outcome of the 2016 election.
