Trump to Hire Lawyer Ty Cobb to Respond to Russia Probes

"They couldn't wait for the meeting to end", Mr. Akhmetshin said.

"Well, I wonder why the Secret Service, if this was nefarious, why the Secret Service allowed these people in".

Mr Sekulow appeared on five television networks on Sunday to defend Mr Trump and his son, following the latest accusations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

"Obviously, I'm the first person on a campaign to ever take a meeting to hear info about an opponent", the president's son said sardonically in a tweet.

Earlier this week, Donald Trump Jr released emails showing he met with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya during his father's Presidential campaign.

In one of the emails, Rob Goldstone, a music promoter who arranged the meeting, told Trump Jr. that a chief prosecutor in Russian Federation offered "information that would incriminate Hillary" Clinton and her "dealings with Russian Federation".

The explosive revelations led to a row over whether the meeting was illegal, as political campaigns are banned from accepting donations or other contributions of value from foreign nationals.

Trump forced to release Mar-a-Lago visitor logs after court order
The Obama administration began voluntarily disclosing its visitor records in 2009 after CREW sued and won. CREW officials say they have no idea what kind of information DHS will share about Mar-a-Lago.

Trump Jr.'s willingness to meet with the lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, in the expectation of receiving incriminating information about Clinton has raised new questions about possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

The meeting has heightened questions about whether Mr. Trump's campaign coordinated with the Russian government during the election, which is the focus of federal and congressional investigations.

United States intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian President Vladimir Putin approved a mass effort to tilt the election in Mr Trump's favour, including hacking and leaking embarrassing emails from Democrats.

A Russian-American lobbyist says he attended a June 2016 meeting with President Donald Trump's son, marking another shift in the account of a discussion that was billed as part of a Russian government effort to help the Republican's White House campaign.

He told Fox News it was "literally just a wasted 20 minutes" that had not been important enough to tell his father about. Veselnitskaya has said she is a private lawyer and denies having Kremlin ties.

The FEC filing shows that Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. disbursed $50,000 for "legal consulting" to Alan Futerfas's law firm, which had been hired to represent Trump Jr., on June 27.
