Trump on Donald Jr

Protesters Outside The White House Demand An Investigation Into Donald Trump Jr.'s Meeting With Russian Lawyer

The first journalist Trump called on at the press conference was American, ABC News' Cecilia Vega, and the question asked was on the hot-button issue of the week, Donald Trump Jr.'s emails setting up a meeting with a Russian lawyer.

"Something could happen with respect to the Paris accord", Mr Trump said, sounding like a man with commitment phobia.

"I think from a practical standpoint most people would've taken that meeting". He's a USA citizen.

Congress is asking the president's son to publicly testify about the meeting. Prior to Trump's decision on the U.S. exit from the Paris deal, Macron held several talks with him on the issue and strongly criticized the United States president's move later.

Kushner's foreign contacts have dogged him since the New York Times first reported in April that meetings with the Russian ambassador to the USA and the CEO of a Russian state-owned bank under us sanctions were among those omitted on his SF-86.

Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said he wants Trump testify "pretty soon", perhaps as early as next week.

Hoping to send a message to President Donald Trump to maintain a strong line against Moscow, the Senate passed the sanctions on Russian Federation, part of a broader measure also imposing new sanctions on Iran, by 98-2 on June 15.

Some Trump detractors have said evidence could eventually support conspiracy or even treason, suggestions the White House strongly rejected. "I love it", Trump Jr. told his acquaintance.

"If he had not alerted the individuals who had been out consistently saying, on behalf of the White House that no one there, no one on behalf of the campaign met for the Russians, then that potential for corruption existed for Jared Kushner as well", the senator said.

While Trump Jr. has since been charged with running the president's businesses and doesn't hold an official position, Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump and Kushner, her husband, are advisers in the White House - they have security clearance and have made several public appearances on governmental matters.

The committee hopes to determine whether Russian employed social media "trolls" that were connected to the Trump campaign.

House aides said negotiations on the Russian Federation bill were continuing.

Rich told Tom that the Russian Federation story may be a "something-burger".

NBC News said representatives for Kushner and Manafort declined to comment, but that a lawyer for Donald Trump Jr. said he had spoken to the lobbyist.

Trump sidestepped a question about applying new sanctions on Russia and offered his endorsement of existing sanctions on Putin, Russian banks, and the oligarchs.

U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian President Vladimir Putin approved a massive effort to swing the election to Trump, including hacking and leaking embarrassing emails from Democrats.

"It's really the one question I wish I would have asked Putin: Were you actually supporting me?" he said Wednesday during an Oval Office interview with Reuters.

"And if we get that and a few more, all of the sudden you are going to have no bullets being fired in Syria".
