After the revelations regarding Trump Jr had met with the Russian Team during the time of campaign, the lawyers of Trump family members had decided to speak the Truth! But according to some reports, Donald Trump Overruled them by issuing a personal statement!
“We primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children that was active and popular with American families years ago and was since ended by the Russian government, but it was not a campaign issue at the time and there was no follow up… I was asked to attend the meeting by an acquaintance, but was not told the name of the person I would be meeting with beforehand.”
Knowingly drafting a false statement for a person who is a witness in a criminal investigation is itself a crime. Obstruction of justice
Later that turned out to be a lie! Everybody knows that Trump Jr arranged the meeting with the Russian officials to falsely implicate and tarnish the image of Hillary Clinton. So it is hard to believe that Donald Trump is unaware of the situation and meeting. Even Republicans like Painter, knows that this is an important crime!
