Donald Trump Is Right: Hillary Was Held To A Different Standard

Twitter is abuzz following Donald Trump Jr's publication of emails showing how he agreed to meet a Kremlin-linked lawyer to discuss compromising information on Hillary Clinton, apparently offered as part of the Russian government's "support" for his father.

The Times also reported that President Trump personally signed off on his son's initial statement about the meeting published by the newspaper on Saturday.

Regardless, it is the people of Paris who will more than likely get to see Donald Trump before Americans do. But the emails he posted on Twitter - shortly prior to publication by The New York Times - indicated that members of the president's inner campaign circle met with Russians whom they knew wanted Trump to prevail. "While the Russian Federation situation is getting worse for Trump by the minute, we still believe that today, health care is a more potent issue with voters when it comes to their choices in the 2017 and 2018 elections".

The deepening story has come as multiple congressional committees and a Justice Department special counsel are investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between aides to the Trump campaign and Russia.

Ryan refused to weigh in hypothetically on whether he'd accept a meeting under circumstances similar to the president's son, son-in-law Jared Kushner and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort's June 9, 2016, meeting at Trump Tower with Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya.

In the interview, Trump said he did not fault his son for holding the meeting.

It also raises questions about whether the meeting described in the emails was the only one of its kind, or whether it was just the beginning at some level of a cooperative enterprise that also included the Russian government's hacking and release of emails from top Democratic officials and targeted dissemination of false "news" stories.

"I would not confuse conspiracy with incompetence", he said, adding: "Clearly from a legal standpoint, there was nothing illegal that he did. when somebody says that a foreign government is interested in passing you information, the first reaction you should have is, 'I think I'm going to pick up the phone and call the Federal Bureau of Investigation and have a chat'". Could we do a call first thing next week when I am back?

"We are the most powerful country in the world and we are getting more and more powerful because I'm a big military person".

Trump, however, has continued to cast doubt on whether Russian Federation was behind the election interference, which included hacks of the Democratic National Committee's email system and Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta's emails. "I think it's very important".

USA intelligence agencies have said the Russian government meddled in the election to aid Trump.

A Democratic representative has introduced the first formal articles of impeachment againt President Donald Trump.

"It really is a great country. Therefore, I do not see any evolution here, this has already been said repeatedly", Peskov told reporters answering the question whether he thought that Trump's evaluation of the meeting has "evolved". "I had a great".
