"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!The Washington Post reported Sunday that Trump has been brooding in private about whether his son unintentionally put himself in legal jeopardy by meeting with Veselnitskaya.
Trump called the report "a complete fabrication."Donald Jr. initially said in a statement to the New York Times in July 2017 that the meeting was "primarily" about American adoptions of Russian children. The Post has reported that the statement was dictated by the president.
Trump´s lawyers argue that the meeting, in and of itself, violated no laws.
