Anthony Scaramucci says Trump's media attacks are 'very bad'

"The Fake News hates me saying that they are the Enemy of the People only because they know it's TRUE".

The Washington Post reported Sunday that Trump has been brooding in private about whether his son unintentionally put himself in legal jeopardy by meeting with Veselnitskaya.

Donald Jr said in July 2017 that the meeting had been about United States adoptions of Russian children, a statement apparently dictated by his father.

"I think there's plenty of evidence of collusion or conspiracy in plain sight".

Trump was responding to a Washington Post report this weekend that although he does not think his eldest son intentionally broke the law, he is anxious that Trump Jr. may have unintentionally stumbled into legal jeopardy and is embroiled in Mueller's investigation largely because of his connection to the president.

Donald Trump Jr, along with his father, US President Donald Trump, and others in the administration have downplayed the importance of the meeting.

The commander-in-chief also slammed the media for reporting that he knew about a meeting between his son, Donald Jr., and Russian operatives during the 2016 presidential election.

In an angry tweet yesterday morning, however, he attacked the "Fake News" media reports that he was concerned about his son's role.

At the time, in July 2017, Trump offered a similar comment to the one he made on Sunday, dismissing the meeting with a Russian lawyer promising dirt on his political opponent as no big deal.

The admission is a significant departure from Trump's previous statements regarding the controversial meeting with a Kremlin-linked lawyer.

"They're talking about this blue wave", Trump said referring to way Democrats are depicted on electoral maps.

One of the president's personal lawyers said on Sunday that if Trump is subpoenaed by the special counsel, his lawyers will attempt to quash it in court.

"I wasn't involved in the statement drafting at all, nor was the president", Sekulow claimed in July 2017.

While Trump has claimed since taking office that "no collusion" occurred between his campaign and Russia and that Mueller was conducting a "witch hunt", Trump's acceptance of Russian help has been out in the open since the final month of the 2016 campaign.

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". Any legal battle over whether the president can be compelled to testify could go all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, the lawyer, Jay Sekulow, said on ABC's "This Week".

"The question is what law, statute or rule or regulation has been violated and nobody has pointed to one", Sekulow said Sunday.
