While Donald Trump Jr. has yet to be interviewed by the Special Counsel's office, many legal scholars do believe that he may have broken several laws in his drive to seemingly obtain damaging material on his father's opponent Hillary Clinton, which had been stolen by a hostile foreign power.

In one of a series of early morning tweets, the U.S. president issued in apparent reaction to a CNN report, Trump said: "Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower".

In a tweet about that report on Sunday, Trump said, "This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics - and it went nowhere".

"The Fake News hates me saying that they are the Enemy of the People only because they know it's TRUE", Trump tweeted from his Bedminster golf resort in New Jersey.

What did Trump say?

Russian Federation has repeatedly denied claims it interfered in the November 2016 presidential elections, where Mr Trump defeated Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

The declaration that the meeting was indeed to get information on Clinton does open the door to this meeting being an attempt by Russian Federation to influence the outcome of the election, and in spite of Trump's claim that it was legal, still opens the possibility of crimes having been committed. However, he said only Mueller can determine whether the evidence rises to the level of criminal activity that is "beyond a reasonable doubt". Trump's lawyers acknowledged in a letter to Mueller's team in January 2018 that Trump dictated the response, according to the Times.

Interested in Russia Investigation?

At the time, Donald Trump Jr issued a statement explaining that he and the lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya (pictured), had "primarily discussed a programme about the adoption of Russian children". There have been no reports that information about Clinton was offered or exchanged. Then, during the rolling political disaster that followed, Trump Jr. And at a trio of rallies, he escalated his already vitriolic rhetoric toward the media, savaging the press for unflattering coverage and, he feels, bias.

Trump railed again Sunday about Mueller's probe, calling it "the most one sided Witch Hunt in the history of our country".

"Let's be honest with the American people, there are irregularities in this investigation, the likes of which we have not seen", Sekulow added later. They purposely cause great division & distrust. "They are very risky & sick!"
