That new admission, however, is completely at odds with the statement Trump crafted for use in the July 2017 news story that first reported the Trump Tower meeting.

Michael Cohen, Trump's longtime attorney and former fixer, is said to be prepared to testify that the President knew about the Trump Tower meeting ahead of time sources with knowledge of the matter told CNN. "I did not know about it!"

It is his most direct statement so far on the reason for Donald Trump Jr's meeting with Kremlin-linked lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya in June 2016.

In what has become a time-honored tradition, Donald Trump took to Twitter early Sunday Morning, and when the dust settled, the President admitted that there was collusion with a foreign power in the 2016 election. It was later revealed that Trump Jr. and others in the Trump campaign met with a Russian lawyer on the promise of receiving information damaging to Hillary Clinton.

Sekulow said. "The question is, what law, statute or rule or regulation has been violated?"

"I had bad information at the time and made a mistake in my statement", Sekulow said Sunday, noting that he had only been working for Trump a short time when he made the misstatement previous year.

Trump was responding to a Washington Post report this weekend that although he does not think his eldest son intentionally broke the law, he is anxious that Trump Jr. may have unintentionally stumbled into legal jeopardy and is embroiled in Mueller's investigation largely because of his connection to the president.

Russian Federation has repeatedly denied claims it interfered in the November 2016 presidential elections, where Mr Trump defeated Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. More than a year ago, he tweeted: "Most politicians would have gone to a meeting like the one Don jr attended in order to get info on an opponent".

Trump urges Sessions to end Russian Federation investigation
Former FBI Director Robert Mueller , the special counsel probing Russian interference in the 2016 election . Trump has denied collusion and obstruction, describing Mueller's investigation as a witch hunt.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is examining whether Trump campaign members coordinated with Russian Federation to sway the White House race in his favour.

"The question is, how would it be illegal?" he asked. He quickly replied, "if it's what you say I love it".

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.

Giuliani cautioned that the president's legal team is still undecided and might ultimately refuse to let him meet face-to-face with Justice Department inquisitors.

The federal tax and bank fraud charges Manafort faces are not related to the Trump campaign but Manafort's close relations with Russians and a Kremlin-backed Ukrainian politician are under scrutiny in the trial. Her unannounced presence raised some eyebrows as Hicks has been interviewed by Mueller and was part of the team of staffers that helped draft the original statement on the Trump Tower meeting. "I believe it's in the best interest of the president and of the United States of America and the American people for that investigation to run the course, for all the truth to come out".

Trump's attacks on the special counsel's investigation have been rebuffed by Republican leaders in Congress who have expressed support for Mueller. "They can also cause War!"

The attorney said that that was when Trump started calling him a "third-rate lawyer".
