Trump says Don Jr. wanted dirt on Clinton from Russian lawyer

Donald Trump, Jr.Donald Trump acknowledged Sunday that his oldest son was trying to dig up dirt on Hillary Clinton when he met a woman linked to the Kremlin in 2016 — an attempt to recast the Trump Tower meeting as an innocuous part of campaigning as the president gets energized about hitting the trail again this year.

His comments, delivered by tweet, directly contradicted a July 2017 statement in which Trump’s team claimed the purpose of Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting a year earlier was to discuss adoption policy regarding Russian children.

That meeting has become one focus of Robert Mueller’s investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia in its efforts to interfere in the 2016 election — a probe the president and his allies have grown more and more eager to put behind him so that he can get back to holding campaign-style rallies in states like Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
