Trump names Cobb as White House special counsel

At one point in his changing story, Trump Jr. claimed that Kushner and Manafort didn't even know what the meeting was about. "We are headed for a constitutional crisis".

He says: "The likeliest possibility is the President's resignation, as a outcome of the criminal prosecution of his children".

Asked whether the president would use his "Made in America" week to commit the Trump organization and his daughter's brand to make more of their products in America, rather than overseas, Ferre was non-committal. "If he did, it would seal his impeachment and his own prosecution".

White House press secretary Sean Spicer contradicted President Donald Trump Monday when he insisted that a meeting Donald Trump Jr. had with a Russian lawyer in the months leading up to the election was about adoption policy.

"No matter how presidential Trump may have looked on his back-to-back trips to Europe in recent days, the persistent questions about connections between Trump's team and Russian Federation prevent him from savouring a public relations victory and building momentum for his stalled legislative agenda".

Things are so bad for Donald Trump that he has set the record for having the lowest approval rating of any president during their first six months in office in United States history. "From a communications standpoint, it's unforgiveable".

Separately, the campaign also paid more than $538,000 to Jones Day, the law firm that represented Mr Trump's campaign during the election.

In a declassified report released in January, the intelligence community concluded that Russian Federation helped with the NY billionaire's campaign effort ahead of winning the White House, an allegation dismissed both by Moscow and Trump.

Chief among those still-unanswered questions is who exactly was in the meeting and what is the identity of the mysterious eighth person.

Each revelation, no matter how small, has been seized upon by Democrats and dissected in detail on cable news.

Jared Kushner's position at the White House is secure, at least for now, a White House official indicated on Tuesday.

Plagued by daily revelations related to the escalating Russian Federation investigations, the White House has dubbed this week "Made in America week" as it tries to focus on issues that matter to the president's base and promote products made in the United States, even as the administration defers questions about the manufacture of products for the Trump Organization and for Ivanka Trump's company.

These are the facts: Jared Kushner held suspicious meetings with Russians officials and operatives that he failed to disclose when he applied for a security clearance. The email exchange between Trump Jr. and Goldstone says it is at the behest of Emin who had information given to his father by someone Goldstone describes as a "Crown prosecutor".

The meeting would not become public knowledge for almost another two weeks.

Married to Ivanka Trump and now a top aide and confidant of President Trump, Kushner is Trump's son-in-law, Trump Jr.'s brother-in-law and a key figure in the campaign.

There is no visible upside to Trump's presidency. Abbe Lowell, a criminal defense lawyer, will now be in charge of all matters relating to Kushner and the Russian Federation probes.

"Most politicians would have gone to a meeting like the one Don jr attended in order to get info on an opponent". "Well, I wonder why the Secret Service, if this was nefarious, why the Secret Service allowed these people in, "he said". "They were released piecemeal and every release was damaging".

Of those polled, 66 percent said they did not trust the president to effectively represent USA interests in negotiations with foreign leaders, with two-thirds also saying they didn't trust him to do so with Putin.
