Sen. Lindsey Graham: Trump's Misleading Statement 'Bothers Me'

There are now so many inquiries, "it's become genuinely hard to keep up with all the different government investigations related to his presidential campaign's ties to Russian Federation and its attempts to sway the 2016 election", Vox reports. "We do don't those things, and when we find people who are in the midst to do that, we quickly deal with that, and either quickly change their behavior or separate them from our various law enforcement agency forces", said Riverside County Sheriff Stan Sniff.

Sessions' political career and ultraconservative positions indicated an obvious alliance with the now-president's campaign.

While Sanders denied that Trump "dictated" the document, she acknowledged that he "weighed in and offered suggestions" on a statement that claimed that in the meeting, Trump Jr. and other participants "primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children". The information "would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russian Federation and would be very useful to your father", read one of the emails.

Now, some of Trump's advisers are concerned that this could place the president in legal jeopardy.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Tuesday in an on-camera briefing, "there's no inaccuracy in the statement".

"He certainly didn't dictate. This is all discussion of no outcome".

She also bristled at the notion Mr. Trump's explanation gave the wrong impression about the meeting.

"I would be really interested in knowing what the president knew at that time", he said.

"This is similar to subparagraph 8 of the Nixon's first impeachment article which accused President Nixon making a misleading public statement for the objective of deceiving the people of the United States into believing further investigation of the Watergate break in was unnecessary", he said. "Otherwise half of Washington would be in jail", he quipped to C-SPAN on Tuesday.

As Joy explained on last night's show, the Washington Post has quite a bit of new information on how the deceptive statement came together - with the president's direct involvement. "I don't think anybody here is anxious about how Russian Federation is going to retaliate. That is truly breathtaking", Mr. Turley said.

A senior adviser said: "Now someone can claim he's the one who attempted to mislead".

The White House has repeatedly indicated the president's intention to sign the legislation into law, but no date has been set nor has a signing ceremony been announced for a bill that already prompted retaliation from Moscow.

"If that's true, then that was a bad decision by the President which will make us ask more questions", Graham said.

"This will be a factor when it comes before the full committee", the California Democrat told CNN.

"I was very concerned when I first heard those remarks because I believe it reinforces a very negative stereotype of police that we've been trying to overcome".

Mr Trump Jr released e-mails last month that showed he eagerly agreed a year ago to meet a woman he was told was a Russian government lawyer who might have damaging information about Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as part of Moscow's official support for his father.

Despite the departure of Comey, who believes that he was sacked because of the FBI investigation into the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation, the bureau is continuing its process.
