He said that Trump's legal team is inclined "at this point" to advise Trump not to agree to be interviewed by special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 US election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner expected to get dirt (and would have "loved" to, as Trump Jr. said) but instead the Russians talked about other matters - sanctions and adoptions. Not only has Trump's former personal lawyer Michael Cohenreportedly said that Trump did, in fact, know about the meeting in advance, as Inquisitr earlier reported, but just two days before the meeting, Trump announced that he planned a major speech serving up damaging information on Clinton.
Jay Sekulow, the president's attorney, denied the president was involved in drafting Trump Jr.'s initial statement that the meeting was about Russian adoptions.

Sekulow added that he has "no knowledge" of whether federal investigators are probing one of the attendees of the meeting, Donald Trump Jr., even as critics charge that the secretive discussion might have run afoul of campaign finance law.
Legal experts have often pointed to a possible violation of federal election laws, which ban taking anything of value - which could include information on a political opponent - from a foreign government trying to influence a US election.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating whether Trump campaign members coordinated with a Russian effort to sway the 2016 election in the Republican's favour.
"The question is, how would it be illegal?" he asked. "But I think, look, if you get a subpoena, you file what's called a motion to quash", Sekulow told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos on Sunday.
One part of the inquiry has focussed on a June 9, 2016, meeting at Trump Tower in NY between Donald Jr., other campaign aides and a group of Russians.
President Donald Trump singles out the media during his rally on August 2, 2018 at the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza in Wilkes Barre, Pa.
Sekulow said the important thing was that Trump's legal team shared accurate information with the special counsel. As an analysis by the University of Kentucky Election Law Society clearly explains, under USA law, "any contribution by a foreign national to the campaign of an American candidate for any election, state or national, is illegal", and any campaign of a candidate who accepts foreign aid is committing a crime.
This is another reason why Trump shouldn't meet with Mueller.
Also, if any Americans aided in disseminating the Russian hacked data, then they could be roped in as co-conspirators in Mueller's indictment of 12 Russian intelligence officers (GRU) for hacking the DNC, DCCC, and Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign during the 2016 election and leaking through DCLeaks and Guccifer 2.0.
In another, he expressed frustration with both the media and Mueller's probe.

Among those killed were 17 people from Switzerland and three people from an Austrian family, including a couple and their son. Swiss media have been citing plane experts' speculations that the current heat wave may have contributed to the crashes.
