    In a change, Trump now says meeting with Kremlin-linked lawyer was over Clinton dirt
    Son's meeting was 'totally legal and done all the time in politics,' tweets U.S. president

    U.S. President Donald Trump waves as he arrives in Morristown, N.J., on Saturday. Trump sent a series of searing tweets from his New Jersey golf club, in which he tore into two of his favourite targets: the news media and Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation into possible links between the president's campaign and Russia.

    U.S. President Donald Trump on Sunday appeared to change his story about a 2016 meeting at Trump Tower that is pivotal to the special counsel's investigation, tweeting that his son met with a Kremlin-connected lawyer to collect information about his political opponent.

    "Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower," Trump wrote. "This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics — and it went nowhere. I did not know about it!"

    That is a far different explanation than Trump gave 13 months ago, when a statement dictated by the president but released under the name of Donald Trump Jr., read: "We primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children that was active and popular with American families years ago."

    The misdirection came amid a series of searing tweets sent from his New Jersey golf club, in which he tore into two of his favourite targets, the news media and Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation into possible links between the president's campaign and Russia. Trump unleashed particular fury at reports that he was anxious about the Trump Tower meeting attended by Donald Trump Jr. and other senior campaign officials.

    Trump's critics pounce
    Trump's critics immediately pounced on the new story, the latest of several versions of events about a meeting for which emails were discovered between the president's eldest son and an intermediary from the Russian government offering damaging information about Trump's opponent, Hillary Clinton. Betraying no surprise or misgivings about the offer from a hostile foreign power, Trump Jr. replied: "If it's what you say I love it especially later in the summer."

    Sunday's tweet was Trump's clearest statement yet on the purpose of the meeting, which has become a focal point of Mueller's investigation even as the president and his lawyers try to downplay its significance and pummel the Mueller probe with attacks. On Sunday, Trump again suggested without evidence that Mueller was biased against him, declaring, "This is the most one sided Witch Hunt in the history of our country."

    And as Trump and his allies have tried to discredit the probe, a new talking point has emerged: that even if that meeting was held to collect damaging information, none was provided and "collusion" — Trump's go-to description of what Mueller is investigating — never occurred.

    "The question is what law, statute or rule or regulation has been violated, and nobody has pointed to one," said Jay Sekulow, one of Trump's attorneys, on ABC's This Week.

    Several possible criminal charges
    But legal experts have pointed out several possible criminal charges, including conspiracy against the United States and aiding and abetting a conspiracy. And despite Trump's public Twitter denial, the president has expressed worry that his son may face legal exposure even as he believes he did nothing wrong, according to three people close to the White House familiar with the president's thinking but not authorized to speak publicly about private conversations.

    Sekulow acknowledged that the public explanation for the meeting has changed but insisted that the White House has been very clear with the special counsel's office. He said he was not aware of Trump Jr. facing any legal exposure.

    "I don't represent Don Jr.," Sekulow said, "but I will tell you I have no knowledge at all of Don Jr. being told that he's a target of any investigation, and I have no knowledge of him being interviewed by the special counsel."

    Democrats hammered away at the president's admission.

    "The Russians offered damaging info on your opponent. Your campaign accepted. And the Russians delivered," tweeted Rep. Adam Schiff of California, top Democrat on the House intelligence committee. "You then misled the country about the purpose of the Trump Tower meeting when it became public. Now you say you didn't know in advance. None of this is normal or credible."

    Trump ramps up attack on media, probe
    Trump's days of private anger spilled out into public with the Twitter outburst, which comes at a perilous time for the president.

    A decision about whether he sits for an interview with Mueller may also occur in the coming weeks, according to another one of his attorneys, Rudy Giuliani. Trump has seethed against what he feels are trumped-up charges against his former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, whose trial began last week and provided a visible reminder of Mueller's work.

    And he raged against the media's obsession with his links to Russia and the status of Michael Cohen, his former fixer, who is under federal investigation in New York. Cohen has indicated that he would tell prosecutors that Trump knew about the Trump Tower meeting ahead of time:

    What did Donald Trump know, and when? One of his former lawyers, Michael Cohen, is reportedly dishing details about a meeting at Trump tower -- between a Russian surrogate and his son. Our U.S. political panel weighs in on that and Paul Manafort’s trial which starts Tuesday.

    Despite a show of force from his national security team this week as a warning against future Russian election meddling, Trump again deemed the matter a "hoax" this week. And at a trio of rallies, he escalated his already vitriolic rhetoric toward the media, savaging the press for unflattering coverage and, he feels, bias.

    'The Fake News hates me'
    "The Fake News hates me saying that they are the Enemy of the People only because they know it's TRUE," Trump tweeted Sunday. "I am providing a great service by explaining this to the American People. They purposely cause great division & distrust. They can also cause War! They are very dangerous & sick!"

    The fusillade of tweets came from Bedminster, Trump's golf course, where he is ensconced in a property that bears his name at every turn and is less checked in by staffers. It was at the New Jersey golf club where a brooding Trump has unleashed other inflammatory attacks and where, in spring 2017, he made the final decision to fire FBI Director James Comey, the move that triggered the Russia probe.

    Trump was joined for his Saturday rally in Ohio by former White House communications director Hope Hicks, who departed the administration earlier this year. Her unannounced presence raised some eyebrows as Hicks has been interviewed by Mueller and was part of the team of staffers that helped draft the original statement on the Trump Tower meeting.

    Multiple White House officials have been interviewed while still working at the White House and have remained in contact with the president.

    特朗普爆出儿子见俄律师目的:是为了挖希拉里黑料
    2018-08-07 07:26:45 来源: 环球时报

      美国总统特朗普5日发表推文说,儿子小特朗普和俄方人员会面是为了挖希拉里的黑料。这是特朗普就那次会面的目的给出的最明确说法,不过他否认自己对此次会面知情。

      据《纽约时报》5日报道,特朗普在推文中表示,小特朗普和俄罗斯律师会面完全合法,在政界是常规操作,而且也没有取得什么成果。他还强调,自己对于此次会面并不知情。特朗普还对《华盛顿邮报》此前的一篇报道进行驳斥,该报道称特朗普担心小特朗普无意中将自己置于法律险境中。特朗普的律师塞库洛在接受美国广播公司采访时也表示,会面并没有违反任何法律。

      报道称,特朗普的说法与小特朗普之前的表态相冲突。小特朗普曾在去年发表声明称,与俄方人员会面是为了讨论收养俄罗斯孤儿问题。美国媒体称,该声明是在特朗普的授意下发布的。美国“政治”新闻网报道称,特朗普此时发推文承认会面动机并称其是竞选中的一种无害行为,意在为11月即将举行的中期选举做准备。一直以来,特朗普都否认2016年大选时其竞选团队与莫斯科存在勾结,并抨击“通俄门”特别检察官穆勒的调查为“猎巫行动”,“这是我国历史上最不公正的猎巫行动。幸运的是,真相正在大白于天下,而且很快!”

      美国法律规定,候选人在竞选时不得接受外国政府的帮助。小特朗普与俄方人员会晤一直被美国媒体视为特朗普竞选团队“与俄方勾结最为实质性的证据”。穆勒正对此进行调查,还曾知会特朗普律师,称他可能寻求与特朗普面谈。如果特朗普不接受面谈,穆勒可能发出法院传票,强制要求总统作证。美国彭博社称,一旦穆勒真的传唤特朗普,势必会引发一场旷日持久的法律纠纷。这样一来,“通俄门”事件的调查反而会被搁置,而且穆勒还有可能遭到反诉。

    70多岁的人,就是随手敲几个字,很难不出事。从另外一方面来说,他说了实话。说实话是美德。他要是早一点说这句实话,调查方面可以省很多纳税人的钱。

    依着我看,
    有人提供竞选对手的资料,哪怕是中俄。
    毕竟冷战结束了,难道还没结束?
    为什么不呢。

    只要是事实。

    结果证明,老毛子给的都是事实。哈哈。这就幽默了。

    其实不可笑。说明了希拉里多么不得人心。

    美国是个极端追求程序正义的国家。
    这就是为什么毒品犯周立波可以无罪释放。
