Wednesday night, and we begin tonight with president trump defending his son.
Trump said he was willing to engage the Russian leader despite controversy over the country's involvement in the 2016 US election.
"If it's what you say I love it". "I don't think this is the right time, but the answer is yes, I would". In an e-mail exchange with an acquaintan acquaintance, don junior was told the purpose of the meeting was "To provide the trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary". Trump Jr released it via Twitter early on Tuesday, after learning that the New York Times had obtained a copy of the explosive communications.
"Let's be the smart people not the stupid people". So, I just wanted to hear it out. We will never ever talk to Russia. No. I don't even know I've probably met with other people from Russia. The bank, a key arm of the Russian government, is under tough US sanctions. Certainly not in the context of a formalized meeting or anything like that, because why would I?
Also in the CBN interview, Trump said he gets along "very, very well" with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
It also led Donald Jr to release an email chain about the planning of that meeting - which is now being cited as the most serious evidence yet of alleged collusion between the Trump presidential campaign and Russia. It's disgusting it's so phony.
"Politics is not the nicest business in the world", the president said, "but it's very standard where they have information and you take the information". Aides describe him as angry and frustrated, but today these images emerged, the president meeting with faith leaders in the oval office laying their hands on him in prayer.
US intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian President Vladimir Putin approved a massive effort to swing the election to Trump, including hacking and leaking embarrassing emails from Democrats.
"I don't see anything in here really remotely resembling repeal", he said.
Scott said he was still trying to determine if the legislation would help families and consumers with pre-existing medical problems.
