Trump Dictated Son’s Statement on Meeting with Russian Lawyer

On Air Force One returning from the G20 Summit last month, President Trump met with advisers to discuss how to respond to a new revelation that Donald Trump Jr. had met with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign.

Trump told his oldest son to tell the media that the meeting was about “a program about the adoption of Russian children” and emphasized that the meeting was “not a campaign issue at the time.” Several Trump advisers fear this revelation could place him and some members of his inner circle in legal jeopardy because they are deliberating trying to circumvent the truth with misleading facts.

“Now someone can claim he’s the one who attempted to mislead. Somebody can argue the president is saying he doesn’t want you to say the whole truth,” said one of the advisers. Robert Mueller will have his work cut out for him after another bombshell out of the White House.
