Trump's decision to dictate that misleading statement adds to a series of actions "some advisers fear could place him and some members of his inner circle in legal jeopardy", the Post reported, adding "these advisers worry that the president's direct involvement leaves him needlessly vulnerable to allegations of a cover-up".
She said, "There is no inaccuracy in that statement". "Only the Fake News Media and Trump enemies want me to stop using Social Media (110 million people)". The Russian attorney reportedly has ties to the Russian government.

In the following days, emails emerged that showed not only did Trump's eldest son know the goal of the meeting was to pass along supposedly damaging information about Hillary Clinton, but that the info was "part of a Russian government effort to aid his father's candidacy".
Trump Jr. responded with a statement claiming the meeting was "primarily" about adoption and its relation to US sanctions on Russian Federation under the Magnitsky Act.

"In 1974, the House Judiciary Committee's first impeachment article against President Nixon stated that "using the powers of his high office, [President Nixon] engaged personally and through his close subordinates and agents, in a course of conduct or plan created to delay, impede, and obstruct the investigation" of the Watergate break-in", Peterson explained to Raw Story. Why not just leave it alone, given that you are the president of the United States and that your son is a grown man? Air Force One took off from Germany shortly after 6 p.m., about noon in Washington.
