Trump Declares 2016 Meeting Between Don Jr And Russians ‘Totally Legal’ In Raging Twitter Fusillade

President Trump on Sunday descended into a Twitter frenzy, lashing out at special counsel Robert Mueller and declaring that his oldest son’s meeting with Russia officials at Trump Tower in 2016 was “totally legal.”

Trump was reacting to a report that he is concerned about the fate of his oldest son, and dismissed the report as “Fake news reporting” in his tweet.

“Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower,” Trump tweeted. ” This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics – and it went nowhere. I did not know about it!”

According to a Washington Post report, “Trump has confided to friends and advisers that he is worried the Mueller probe could destroy the lives of what he calls “innocent and decent people” — namely Trump Jr., who is under scrutiny by Mueller for his role organizing a June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower with Russians promisig dirt on Hillary Clinton.”

The report adds, “As one adviser described the president’s thinking, he does not believe his son purposefully broke the law, but is fearful nonetheless that Trump Jr. inadvertently may have wandered into legal jeopardy.”
