White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders challenged Jay Sekulow's statement on Tuesday regarding the president's involvement with Russia. She cited that Trump Jr.'s statement is verifiable, however, the president had limited information regarding the meeting. Therefore, he said what any father would have said, under the circumstances.

Trump's controversial statements

On Monday, another disclosure indicated the president's involvement with Russia. The investigation evaluating potential ties between the presidential campaign and Russia is led by special counsel Robert Mueller. Donald Trump Jr. told the media that he and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya met to discuss an adoption program for Russian children.

Alternate media reports reveal that the meeting, in fact, was organized to share damaging information about Hillary Clinton. In light of current events, Donald Trump Jr. was asked to reveal the email exchange regarding the meeting.

The president's statement seems to take away from the potential significance of the meeting between Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, and the Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya. In addition, it has been speculated that Natalia Veselnitskaya had access to highly-confidential information about Hilary Clinton.

Emails reveal a different story

On Tuesday, Jay Sekulow had to release many statements after the sporadic leaks of the meeting's details. On the other hand, Huckabee Sanders said that President Trump certainly didn’t domineer. However, he did refute allegations like any father would.

The emails reveal that Trump Jr. was inevitably informed about the Russians' plan to back up the Trump campaign. According to The White House report, the meeting was not in President Trump's knowledge. However, alternate reports confirm President Trump's presence in Trump Tower the day this meeting was held. Either way, these allegations about the meeting have placed an already-beleaguered president under the microscope. The federal investigators are looking into the possible collusion between the presidential campaign and Russia.

There are a lot of fresh questions demanding answers from the Justice Department. Special counsel Robert Mueller will examine for obstruction of justice, if any. Richard Painter, White House ethics lawyer, told The Guardian that media is drawing a witness into a false story, which will result in him turning around and lying under oath. He fears that Trump might obstruct justice by lying to be consistent with their story. Painter added that Trump knowingly drafted a false statement to protect his son, who is a significant witness.
