Trump Says Putin Would Have Preferred Hillary Clinton in Oval Office

You're seeing the influence of James and Lachlan Murdoch, the sons and runners of the Post.

The latest revelations have put the president's son at the centre of the scandal involving multiple US investigations into whether Trump associates colluded with Moscow in a bid to tilt the election in the Republican's favoUr. And that's why I say, why would he want me? The push to get to the bottom of the Trump-Russia link is not, as the president has said, "fake news".

But he said he didn't mention the meeting to his father after it failed to yield any compromising information, describing it as "such a nothing. It's the dumbest thing I've ever heard", he said.

"I think many people would have held that meeting", he noted during another interview at the White House later Wednesday.

Trump also questioned whether Putin was really gunning for his victory, as U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded.

The US Justice Department and Congress are both investigating alleged Russian interference in the November election and any possible collusion with Mr Trump's campaign.

Donald Trump Jr, in an interview with Fox News on Tuesday, said: "In retrospect, I probably would have done things a little differently". That's what Putin doesn't like about me and that's why I say, why would he want me? "Something could happen with respect to the Paris accord", Trump said.

That concern is "certainly something we want to explore", along with the Trump campaign's data analytics, as part of a broader committee investigation into Russian meddling, Schiff said.

News that the President Donald Trump's eldest son took a meeting with a Kremlin-connected lawyer knowing it was part of a Russian attempt to help his father win the election has everyone in Washington talking.

Wray also dismissed criticism of the Mueller investigation.

Trump was asked about his son's meeting a day after Christopher Wray, his nominee to head the FBI, told the Senate Judiciary Committee at his confirmation hearing that he would advise politicians that "any threat or effort to interfere with our election from any nation state or any non-state actor is the kind of thing the FBI would want to know".

A Reuters reporter asked the president Wednesday if he had known about his son's meeting with the Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya in June last year.

On climate change, Macron said that it was an area where the two nations "have a number of disagreements" but that he remains extremely attached to the framework of the Paris Climate Agreement, which he labeled "a major international breakthrough". What the emails show is that we must not look away until they have led wherever they will. In a post to Twitter, the president said Donald Trump Jr. was "open transparent and innocent". But he added of Putin: "Somebody did say if he did do it you wouldn't have found out about it. Which is a very interesting point".
