Republican President Donald Trump claimed he was unaware of his son’s meeting during the 2016 campaign, with a Russian lawyer offering dirt on Hillary Clinton.

“Asked if he knew that his son was meeting with lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya in June last year, the president told Reuters in a White House interview: ‘No, that I didn’t know until a couple of days ago when I heard about this.'”

“Trump Jr. eagerly agreed to meet the woman he was told was a Russian government lawyer who might have damaging information about Democratic rival Hillary Clinton as part of Moscow’s official support for his father’s campaign, according to emails the son released on Tuesday.”
