Trump Dictated His Son's Account Of Meeting With Russian Lawyer, Post Reports

President Donald Trump raised eyebrows Friday when he suggested cops get rough with suspects, but White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday that he shouldn't be taken literally.

In the statement, Donald Trump Jr denied a meeting held with a Russian lawyer was related to the 2016 presidential campaign.

The initial plan was that Mr Trump Jr fully disclose what he knew about the meeting, the Post says, but that decision was reversed and his first statement said they had discussed the adoption of Russian children, not campaign issues.

The president's son later released email correspondence that showed he took the meeting because he believed the lawyer had information from the Russian government that would compromise Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. But within 24 hours, highly damaging revelations had emerged that made clear the meeting had been much more charged than that.

Indian forces kill two youth in occupied Kashmir
The officer said one person, whose identity is being ascertained, was hit by a bullet in the shoulder and rushed to a hospital. Two militants were killed in an encounter with security forces in south Kashmir's Pulwama district on Sunday, officials said.

Trump, speaking before officers from Suffolk County Police Department in NY on efforts to combat the gang MS-13, urged officers Friday to be "rough" on suspects, as many officers standing behind the President cheered and clapped.

There's no way I can do justice to the deeply reported intricacies of The Washington Post report, which you must read in full. So the line from the Trump team is essentially that they were trying to collude with the Russian government to help their campaign, but the attempt was unsuccessful. The New York Times was first to report the meeting.

"Now someone can claim he's the one who attempted to mislead", the source told the Post.

"I have nothing to add to this", a White House official said Monday when asked about the speech and the criticism Trump received, declining to go on the record. Trump Jr. was reportedly in the meeting with Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and then-campaign manager Paul Manafort.

Trump touts himself as a president who is "strong on law enforcement" and tough on crime.

The Department of Justice, now guided by a special counsel in the shape of former Federal Bureau of Investigation director Robert Mueller, is looking into the ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation and any possible cover-up.

During breaks away from the summit, Kushner and Ivanka Trump gathered with [Hope] Hicks and [White House spokesman Josh] Raffel to discuss Kushner's response to the inquiry, according to people with knowledge of the discussions.

This includes the Senate Intelligence Committee who, under their purview, have taken part in both open and closed testimonial from James Comey, the former boss of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
