The Hill: “Yesterday the Washington Post reported that President Trump personally dictated a statement for his son Donald Trump Jr. to give regarding his meeting with a Russian lawyer, indicating that they ‘primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children’ that was ‘not a campaign issue at the time.'”

“The statement reportedly dictated by the president proved to be misleading — at best — after Trump Jr. released an email string that showed the purpose of the meeting was actually to ‘provide some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia’ as ‘part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.'”

“The president’s dictation of this statement to his son will create significant legal headaches for him and could be used by Robert Mueller, special counsel for the Justice Department’s Russia investigation, as evidence of his corrupt intent as part of an existing obstruction of justice investigation.”
