President Trump’s latest tweets accuse the news media of distorting democracy and treating Donald Trump Jr. unfairly.
My son is a wonderful young man, he took a meeting with a Russian lawyer, not a government lawyer but a Russian lawyer.
But a Russian-American lobbyist with possible ties to Russian Intelligence is now known to have attended the June 2016 meeting and Trump Jr.’s conflicting accounts are drawing scrutiny.
He first said no such meeting ever happened and then he said the meeting was about adoptionsand he then admitted the meeting was about getting information on Hilary Clintonand he was referred coming about who’s in the meeting, so we can’t accept anything Donald Jr. saysand of course we can’t accept much the president says about this either.
Donald Trump Jr. himself said things should be done differently, having said that again, none of that violation of the law…
Trump’s legal team says that the president didn’t even know his son’s meeting.Trump Junior has been invited to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee as early as this week.
I am more than happy to be transparent about it, and I am more than happy to cooperate with everyone.
Meanwhile a vote on a Republican health care plan has been postponed yet againas senator John McCain recovers from an expected surgery.
Republicans need every possible Yes Vote, giving United Democratic opposition and two confirmed No Votes within their pockets.
It could lead to insurance plans, they are really barely insurance at all.It would cost premiums that increase for some very vulnerable individuals including those with preexisting conditions.
Not so according to the White House.
You are going to finally have great health care at a lower price.
A half-dozen wavering republicans could announce support or opposition this weekwhen projections of the revise plans impact on coverage and affordability are released by the Congressional Budget Office.
