Republicans begin damning Trump with faint praise — Allen

Protesters gather outside the White House

Trump Jr. expressed that interest after an entertainment promoter who was a business acquaintance told him that someone connected with the Russian government wanted to share negative information about Clinton, who was about to become Democrats' nominee for president.

Bremmer's sources said the conversation was "very warm and friendly". She said she was detained at London's Heathrow Airport on a return trip from the U.S. and "unjustifiably" subjected to a strip search.

But historically, the Secret Service has had little authority over the security of candidates' campaign headquarters, focusing instead on the safety of their personal residences.

It is strange - though perfectly understandable - that so many liberal politicians and media figures eager to attack Trump seem to have forgotten about other issues involving Russia.

To provide the highest level of protection to presidential candidates - and, broadly, secure the American political process - hundreds of special agents work in a coordinated effort across the country to, for example, provide constant vigilance over a candidate's home, regardless of the location or locations.

Noor's partner, Matthew Harrity, told investigators he was startled by a loud sound near their squad vehicle right before Damond approached the car on his side. As for Trump Jr., he hasn't responded to the allegations since his "Hannity" appearance. Does he really think the media will just shut up and get in line to kiss his feet, like sycophant Sean Hannity? "Mrs. Trump was seated next to President Putin".

Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort, the campaign chairman at the time, joined the meeting, which was held in Trump Jr.'s office on the 25th floor of Trump Tower. He said she made a vague reference to Russia funding the Clinton campaign - an inherently unlikely prospect given the Russian government disliked her. Veselnitskaya then quickly switched to lobbying for a change in US law to encourage Moscow to lift a ban on Americans adopting Russian children.

This is not fake news. Then, it was to hear information about Clinton.

At first, the June 2016 meeting was said to be about a Russian adoption program.

And then there's the matter of a possible violation of campaign finance law that prohibits "a foreign national, directly or indirectly, to make a contribution or donation of money or other thing of value, or to make an express or implied promise to make a contribution or donation, in connection with a federal, state, or local election". It allowed Russia to gain control of about one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States. Prosecutors said that lawyer, Andrey Pavlov, filed sham lawsuits against investors in Russian companies and associates with members of a Russian organized crime group described as "a shadowy criminal syndicate - identified only as 'the Organization'".

The statement continued: "It is not merely perfectly normal, it is part of a president's duties, to interact with world leaders".

Also in attendance was a Russian-American lobbyist and Veselnitskaya's translator.

Masha Gessen, a prominent Putin critic, describes the offer as "absurd" and says the email exchange was most likely a "con" to set up the meeting.

Balber said his client hasn't been interviewed yet and that special counsel Robert Mueller's investigators have not reached out about Emin and Aras Agalarov, whom he also represents. The Agalarovs worked with Trump to host the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow.
