Donald Trump Jr.'s Russia meeting didn't break law — President Trump's lawyer

Futerfas told NBC that, "for the purpose of security or otherwise, the names were reviewed" but said Trump Jr. knew nothing about the man's background at the time of the meeting.

While Don Jr. and Eric Trump don't work in the White House, his daughter Ivanka serves as an adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner serves as a senior adviser and assistant to the president. Intangible donations could include information regarding another candidate.

The Hill said that the agency's website states its purview as protection of "the president, vice president, the president-elect, the vice president-elect, as well as other individuals in the presidential line of succession".

The lawyer recommended going public with the information to help the Trump campaign, though she did not have additional evidence of the money flow as requested in the meeting, Ahkmetshin said.

The allegations have cast a cloud over Mr Trump administration since he took office.

Caputo resigned from the campaign on June 20, 2016 after celebrating the dismissal of then-campaign manager Corey Lewandowski with a tweet that said, "Ding Dong the witch is dead".

But for months the White House insisted no such meeting had happened. Trump attended the tournament, which was held on his golf course at Bedminster in New Jersey, on Friday.

President Trump maintains he did not know about the meeting until just before his son released the emails.

The Republican president drew criticism last week from Democrats who accused him of not pressing Russian President Vladimir Putin hard enough at a meeting they held in Germany over Moscow's alleged interference in the 2016 campaign. With regard to how the information came out, as I said, that was information that was controlled not by my client, not by the president, it was controlled by Donald Trump Jr., and they made a decision on how to release that out.

Trump Jr.'s eagerness to take the meeting reflected standard "opposition research", Sekulow said.

In the words of Energy Secretary Rick Perry, "I don't buy it". As far as the Post and the Times report, Trump Jr. never said that the Russian lawyer attended alone. The fact that Akhmetshin apparently is a colorful guy is an added bonus. "You asked him the question in the Rose Garden; the president answered it. So, you know, I take the president on his word there".
