washington - US President Donald Trump said Wednesday night (local time) that he did not deny the controversial encounter of his son Donald Jr. last year with a Russian jurist.
'I do not blame my son about the conversation, I think everyone would like to attend this meeting. I only heard about the conversation a few days ago, 'said the president in a response to the fuss. Earlier Wednesday, Donald Jr. said he had not informed his father about the meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaja. 'There was nothing to tell,' said the president's son against American media.
The Russians promised Trump sensitive information about Trumps opponent Hillary Clinton during the campaign for presidential elections. Trump Jr. published the email exchange with an intermediary prior to the meeting on Tuesday. This shows that he knew that the information came from the Russian government, who would like to support his father.
