Cornered By ABC Host, Trump Lawyer Drops Major Admission About Trump Tower Meeting

During a Sunday interview on ABC, one of President Donald Trump’s personal attorneys admitted that he had misled the public about the reason Donald Trump Jr. and other campaign officials met with Russian officials in a 2016 Trump Tower meeting.

ABC host with host George Stephanopoulos confronted Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow with a clip of his previous statements on the meeting where he said it was to discuss Russian orphans, before being asked about Trump’s tweet Sunday morning admitting the meet-up was to get information about his opponent, Hillary Clinton.

“There was a lot of information we were gathering,” Sekulow said.

“As my colleague Rudy Giuliani said at the time, I had bad information at that time and made a mistake in my statement. I’ve talked about that before,” he explained. “That happens when you have cases like this.”

“I have to say, over time, facts develop,” he admitted.
