Most journalists are reluctant to use the L-word - "lie". "Never", he told the Post.
The lobbyist, Rinat Akhmetshin, who denies any connection to the Russian government, reportedly accompanied the lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya to the meeting with president's eldest son in June of 2016 at Trump Tower.
Akhmetshin's participation raises the level of the concern about the meeting.
She and her surrogates regularly portrayed Trump as a "risky" choice with a "temperament" that could lead to dire consequences.
"Big deal, no not at all", he replied. She had only for whatever reason posted the image of him and the lawyer to her Facebook page, McCain said.
I quickly scanned my caller board to see if any others on hold shared the views of the first two callers.
So back to Trump Jr.
Popular Video This young teenage singer was shocked when Keith Urban invited her on stage at his concert. He said he thinks she left the materials with the Trump associates. He would like Hillary, where she wants to have windmills. They weren't afraid to take chances and live with the results. Akhmetshin said he recognized Kushner and Trump Jr. Trump can be erratic, undisciplined, brash, and frequently lacking in impulse control.
Earlier this week, President Trump fed the theory in his remarks in Paris. They would have said, "Let's come out with a statement on this".
Asked about Akhmetshin's participation, Manafort spokesman Jason Maloni declined comment.
Neither Kushner's attorney nor spokesperson, have commented on this.
Yes, a very small percentage of Muslims are Islamist extremists, but as has been pointed out, even fewer than 1 percent means hundreds of thousands willing to slaughter "the Great Satan". When Putin seized Crimea, Clinton said and did nothing to stop him. "Nothing happened from the meeting", the president said. In Hamburg, Putin said he believed he had already established a personal relationship with Trump, adding that "the TV Trump is very different from the person in reality".
The two Democrats brought with them a large poster board to the House floor featuring a Time magazine cover from this week, which has the words "Red Handed" printed underneath Trump Jr.'s face.
"He told me specifically he was not working for the Russian government, and, in fact, laughed when I asked him that question", Futerfas said.
"They couldn't wait for the meeting to end", he said. Akhmetshin is not registered as representing foreign agents or governments, but his client list is long. There was no legitimate reason to keep her out.
Akhmetshin has been identified in media reports as a former officer in Russia's military intelligence service known as the GRU. Most (but certainly not all) will face challengers from within their own parties who they'll need to defeat in primaries in order to be on the ballot in November. And all of this is going on simultaneously. And the president's son said in clear terms "this is everything". Maybe Junior is too stupid to know better.
As a Trump supporter, you might then attempt to compartmentalize the damage, to dismiss what the junior Trump did as the behavior of a kid who didn't know what he was doing. "Well, you think our country is so innocent?" He's an intermediary for Veselnitskaya, who either (a) works for the Kremlin and possibly even Vladimir Putin; or (b) is just a lawyer/lobbyist interested in U.S. policy.
