'Trump Jr. didn't have protection during Russian lawyer meeting'


Trump's eldest son admitted to having a meeting with a Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, who had ties to the Kremlin in June 2016.

But at that point, the Secret Service was not protecting any of the Trump campaign representatives who actually attended. Veselnitskaya indicated the Trump campaign would have to do more research and it was then that Trump Jr. lost interest.

US News wrote that he told reporters that he was in the service of the Soviet Army in the counter-intelligence unit, but was never officially trained as a spy.

The president has retweeted Fox News or 'Fox & Friends' nine times since Monday.

Warner cited Donald Trump Jr.'s publication of his emails arranging a meeting with a Russian lawyer after he was promised damaging information on Hillary Clinton as part of an effort by the Russian government to aid his father's campaign.

The president on the social media platform also thanked former adviser Michael Caputo for defending the administration against accusations of colluding with Russia. However, now that he is in the United States and has been discussing his story with an attorney, we may begin to hear his side of things.

This is published unedited from the IANS feed. "I think the whole idea of trying to run the presidency like a family grocery store, I don't think that works very well". Trump Jr. told Sean Hannity he is willing to testify under oath. I voiced that complaint here. His presence, though noted at the time, likely would have signified nothing to the president's son, though it might have meant something to Paul Manafort.

"Donald Trump, Jr. was not a protectee of the USSS in June, 2016", the statement read.

Moscow has denied any interference and the president and Trump Jr. have denied any collusion.

The Department of Justice did reportedly ask for Veselnitskaya to be cleared, but the request came from the Manhattan U.S. Attorney's office, not from the DOJ or Lynch.

Once the internet got wind of the latest new member, Twitter users began to wonder who else was secretly in attendance.

There are currently several congressional panels and a federal special counsel investigating allegations Russia meddled in the election.
