The President of the United States Donald Trump advised not to write anything on Twitter about meeting his son, Donald trump Jr., the lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya. It is reported by CNN, citing an anonymous source in the White house.
The President announced that his Twitter posts only fuel the interest in this meeting, even if they are addressed to those who do not believe that there was something illegal. Who exactly gave this advice to the US President, CNN reported.
We are talking about a message written by trump 5 Aug. He responded to the publication of the newspaper The Washington Post, which reported that the President of the United States is concerned about the investigation of Russia’s intervention in U.S. elections, and also the fact that this investigation has become a “trap” for his son Donald on the sole ground that he was his son.
“False media reported completely fabricated the news that I supposedly concerned about the legal consequences of the meeting of my wonderful son, Donald, which he had at Trump Tower. At this meeting information was received about his opponent — legally, as it has always done in politics and she did not go anywhere further,” wrote trump.
Meeting in the Trump Tower, which writes the President of the United States, took place in June 2016. Donald trump Jr. and President-in-law Jared Kushner met with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya. Initially, this meeting became known from the publication of The New York Times, which linked Veselnitskaya with the Russian authorities.
According to the publication, at this meeting, Trump, Jr., and Kushner was given information about Hillary Clinton, who was a rival trump, Sr. in the presidential elections. In a letter to Trump, Jr. from a former reporter of one of the British tabloids, Rob Goldstone, who proposed to organize this meeting, this was presented as “part of efforts of the Russian government to assist the election campaign of his father.”
Later Veselnitskaya and trump Jr. confirmed that the meeting indeed took place, and the lawyer denied that has any relation to the Russian authorities.
According to Veselnitskaya, she told Trump Jr. that the company of William Browder Ziff Brothers Investments has avoided paying taxes in Russia and sent money to the needs of the Democrats during the election campaign of Hillary Clinton in 2016. Her companion, according to her, this information was not interested.
Donald trump Jr. called this 20-minute meeting a waste of time. “I’d never even thought [about them], if you are reminded not to dig into this stuff”, he said. He also said that I did not even bother to report this conversation to your father.
