Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner had more than 100 foreign contacts during the campaign and transition according to his lawyer
"Remember, when you hear the words "sources say" from the Fake Media, often times those sources are made up and do not exist", Trump wrote tweeted early Wednesday morning.
Democratic Sen. Chris Coons said, "I look forward to asking Donald Trump Jr. what the heck he was thinking in embracing a meeting with someone who said they were representing one of our foremost adversaries in the world?"
The former intelligence officer is now a Russia-American lobbyist and denies any current ties to the Russian government.
Putin told reporters earlier this month that Trump appeared to agree with Moscow's position that it did not interfere in last year's election during their meeting at G20.
President Trump and Trump Jr. have said there was nothing improper about the meeting.
Others have lawyered up, too, including White House Senior Adviser and son-in-law to the president, Jared Kushner, Vice President Mike Pence, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, and former Trump Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort.
Four White House officials and two outside advisers say Kushner wants the White House to more aggressively push out surrogates and talking points to change the narrative around the latest twist in the Russian Federation scandal.
Veselnitskaya later toldNBC that she didn't have negative information on Clinton and had asked for the meeting to talk about the Magnitsky Act, which authorizes the United States president to deny visas to and freeze the assets of selected Russians, as a punishment for Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014.
A Russian-American lobbyist also attended a meeting a year ago that has embroiled President Donald Trump's son in the Russia inquiry, it has emerged.
The meeting was attended by Donald Trump's son and his then campaign manager Paul Manafort.
"My son is a wonderful young man", the president said.
Donald Trump Jr. did not disclose Akhmetshin's presence at the meeting in his statements about the meeting.
"They couldn't wait for the meeting to end", he reportedly said.
That publicist also told Trump Jr. the information was "very high level" and "sensitive" and part of the Russian "government's support for Mr. Trump".
