White House says Trump acted 'as any father would' in dictating Donald Trump Jr's misleading statement on Russia meeting
Carlos Barria/Reuters
President Donald Trump acted "as any father would" in dictating the initial misleading statement that Donald Trump Jr. used when confronted by The New York Times earlier this month about his June 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Tuesday.
Sanders' statement followed a bombshell Washington Post report on Monday that outlined how Trump "personally dictated" the initial misleading statement to the Times, which noted that those in the meeting "primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children" and that the subject of conversation was "not a campaign issue at the time."
The Trump Jr. statement made no mention of what would eventually be revealed days later with the publication of Trump Jr.'s emails with a music publicist who helped arrange the meeting. In those emails, it became clear that Trump Jr. was fully expecting to be presented with damaging information related to soon-to-be Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton that originated from the Russian government.
"The statement that Don Jr. issued is true," Sanders said during Tuesday's press briefing. "There's no inaccuracy in the statement. The president weighed in as any father would, based on the limited information he had, this is all discussion of frankly no consequence. There was no follow up. It was disclosed to the proper parties, which is how the New York Times found out about it to begin with."
The Post reported that when news of the meeting was first revealed to Trump and his advisers aboard Air Force One as the president returned from the G-20 summit in Germany, his advisers agreed that a truthful statement about the meeting was needed. But Trump reportedly disagreed, and the misleading statement, which was later amended multiple times as more information about the meeting came out, was released.
Trump said he learned of the meeting in the immediate days before the Times' report in early July, with previous reporting suggesting that Trump signed off on the statement. But Trump's direct involvement in the statement's crafting was described to the Post by one Trump adviser as "unnecessary."
"Now someone can claim he's the one who attempted to mislead," the adviser said. "Somebody can argue the president is saying he doesn't want you to say the whole truth."
At the time , one of Trump's top lawyers in the Russia investigation, Jay Sekulow, told media outlets that the president "didn't sign off on anything" and "wasn't involved" in drafting the first Trump Jr. statement.
That meeting, which was also attended by then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and a White House senior adviser, has caught the attention of special counsel Robert Mueller.
Mueller, who is investigating whether members of the Trump team colluded with Russia during the course of the 2016 presidential election, sent the White House a request asking officials to preserve any documents related to that June 2016 Trump Tower meeting.
As Business Insider's Natasha Bertrand noted Tuesday , the latest revelations, which were essentially confirmed by Sanders' Tuesday statements, could pose additional legal problems for the White House.

Trump blasts Russia sanctions bill he just signed into law as 'seriously flawed'
Alex Wong/Getty Images
President Donald Trump signed a new sanctions bill targeting Russia, Iran, and North Korea into law on Wednesday, despite calling the legislation "seriously flawed" and saying it "improperly encroaches on executive power, disadvantages American companies, and hurts the interests of our European allies."
Trump, who has lingering doubts that Russia interfered in the 2016 election, said in a statement that he supported "making clear that America will not tolerate interference in our democratic process, and that we will side with our allies and friends against Russian subversion and destabilization."
But he quickly pivoted to outlining the legislation's flaws and his administration's efforts "to make this bill better."
"We have made progress and improved the language to give the Treasury Department greater flexibility in granting routine licenses to American businesses, people, and companies," the statement said.
It continued: "The improved language also reflects feedback from our European allies — who have been steadfast partners on Russia sanctions — regarding the energy sanctions provided for in the legislation. The new language also ensures our agencies can delay sanctions on the intelligence and defense sectors, because those sanctions could negatively affect American companies and those of our allies."
The Republican chairman of the House Rules Committee raised concerns last month about how new sanctions on Russia's energy and financial-services sectors would affect his district's businesses.
That was one of a series of obstacles the bill faced before it was approved by a veto-proof majority in the House and Senate and sent to Trump's desk on Friday. The legislation initially stalled when House Republicans said its language did not comply with a constitutional requirement that bills generating revenue originate in the House.
Trump said in his statement that he while he signed the bill for the sake of "national unity," it remained "seriously flawed — particularly because it encroaches on the executive branch's authority to negotiate."
A provision in the bill requiring Trump to get congressional approval before altering or lifting sanctions on Russia has been a point of contention between the White House and Congress. Trump characterized the provision as an obstacle to the US's ability "to strike good deals for the American people" that would ultimately "drive China, Russia, and North Korea much closer together."
"The Framers of our Constitution put foreign affairs in the hands of the president," the statement continued. "This bill will prove the wisdom of that choice."
Trump has still not commented publicly on Russian President Vladimir Putin's demand that 755 diplomatic workers, many of them from the US, be cut from the US Embassy in Moscow and from US diplomatic missions in St. Petersburg, Ekaterinburg, and Vladivostok.
The cuts would be the steepest in nearly 100 years and would go much further than President Barack Obama's decision to expel 35 Russian diplomats from the US as punishment for Russia's election interference.
But Trump used the closing paragraph of his statement to boast about his "truly great company worth many billions of dollars."
"That is a big part of the reason I was elected," he said. "As president, I can make far better deals with foreign countries than Congress."
