"Well, I wonder why the Secret Service, if this was nefarious, why the Secret Service allowed these people in", Jay Sekulow said on ABC's "This Week".
The tweet supporting his son came after he denied any of his aids involved with Russians in conspiring against his Democratic presidential election counterpart Hillary Clinton during the hard-fought election a year ago. The emails Trump Jr. released prove that. He added that "the president was not aware of the meeting and did not participate in it". "There was nothing illegal to cover up".
Ironically, the current commotion and commotion is the result of Donald Trump Jr, recent email revelations, in which he eagerly welcomed the idea of damaging information about Clinton from a Russian lawyer. "I think the thing that bothers me the most is that we seem to have a frenzy of people jumping to conclusions".
When the New York Times first broke news of the meeting on July 8, Trump Jr. acknowledged it happened, but claimed the main topic of discussion was adoption policy.
A USA citizen, lobbyist and former Soviet military officer has revealed he was one of the figures present at a closed-door gathering of a Russian lawyer and senior campaigners of President Donald Trump in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.
Even after reports from multiple news organizations, exactly who else attended the meeting remains unclear.
President Donald Trump maintains that the story is a witch hunt, but Trump Jr.'s emails specifically naming the Russian government have breathed new life into the investigation into whether the Trump campaigned colluded with Russia. "There was absolutely no discussion of Russian Federation on the Trump campaign 'til the day I left".
"Almost every week we find another thread that we have to pull on", said Sen.
Warner said he still does not know who was in attendance either.
"The thing about this investigation is it feels like nearly every week we find another thread that we have to pull on", he added.
"You know, when I needed negative information about Hillary Clinton, I didn't have to go very far", she said during the interview. Sixty percent said Russian Federation tried to influence the campaign, and among those who say so, 67 percent said Trump aides helped.
Trump Jr. insists nothing substantive came of the meeting and has similarly defended it as an attempt to gather routine opposition research.
