On Sunday, President Donald Trump tweeted about the fateful 2016 meeting his "wonderful son" Donald Trump Jr. had in Trump Tower, a gathering which also controversially featured several Russian nationals.
"This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics--and it went nowhere," the president wrote, presumably referring to Hillary Clinton. "I did not know about it!"
The tweet caused an uproar and accusations of collusion, although late Sunday, Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow told ABC News' This Week, "The question is: How would it be illegal?" and said no laws were broken. Still, special counsel Robert Mueller is continuing to examine the meeting as part of his probe into Russian election interference.
Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower. This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics - and it went nowhere. I did not know about it!— Donald J.

...Why aren’t Mueller and the 17 Angry Democrats looking at the meetings concerning the Fake Dossier and all of the lying that went on in the FBI and DOJ? This is the most one sided Witch Hunt in the history of our country. Fortunately, the facts are all coming out, and fast!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 5, 2018
Too bad a large portion of the Media refuses to report the lies and corruption having to do with the Rigged Witch Hunt - but that is why we call them FAKE NEWS!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 5, 2018
