Trump praises jobs and stock market numbers 'despite the Russian hoax story'

Ex-Soviet counterintelligence officer was present at meeting with Trump Jr. and Russian lawyer

Ex-Soviet counterintelligence officer was present at meeting with Trump Jr. and Russian lawyer

Here he was in May speaking with NBC News. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Trump "pressed" Putin "regarding Russian involvement". Our occasional disagreements are nothing compared to the immortal bonds of culture, destiny and liberty that unite us. And there it was in black and white. "He vehemently denied it. I've already given my opinion". "Nobody really knows. Nobody really knows for sure". Trump's misleading assertions that it was "three or four" intelligence agencies, not all 17, are meaningless, because there was no dissent from the other intelligence agencies. And the Agalarov - Emin Agalarov is the son of Aras Agalarov, a billionaire Russian oligarch very close to Vladimir Putin.

SHAPIRO: We'll have to leave it there. In Hamburg, he even discussed with Putin an Alice-in-Wonderland proposal of forming a joint U.S. -Russian "Cyber Security unit so that election hacking, & many other negative things, will be guarded".

DIONNE: Whether they accomplish something or not, I think they're going to underscore something that should be really disturbing to people and, I think, really is disturbing to anti-Trump conservatives and not just Democrats, which is that the Republican leadership has been absolutely cowardly in confronting Trump. He said the president did not attend the meeting and was not aware of it.

The Russian lawyer represented a Russian real estate conglomerate in a case brought by former Manhattan U.S. attorney Preet Bharara in 2015.

. A conservative writer said a couple weeks ago that the Trump administration is afflicted with Russian amnesia.

The number of people known to be at the meeting also changed over time.

E J DIONNE, BYLINE: Good to be with you. And interestingly, the example the dictionary uses is in collusion with the enemy.

DIONNE: He probably is by now. And the fact is Trump's legal team is top lawyer Marc Kasowitz and Alan Garten, the chief legal officer of the Trump organization, were informed about this in the third week of June.

The next day, however, it emerged that Trump Jr. had accepted the meeting to obtain damaging information about then-candidate Hillary Clinton, and that he had been told in advance it was "part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump". And that's what feeds the suspicion.

"Ms. Veselnitskaya appears to have stayed at a less expensive hotel during the depositions, but moved to the Plaza after the depositions concluded, and only after the Court orally stated that the Government would be responsible for reimbursing Defendants' expenses", prosecutors griped in papers filed in Manhattan federal court. The most benign explanation is that Trump is worried that such investigations will undermine his political legitimacy.

The Russian lawyer at the center of the Donald Trump Jr. scandal has a taste for the finer things in life - at least as long as U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: The friendship between our two nations and ourselves, I might add is unbreakable. And they retaliated by restricting adoptions of Russian children by Americans.

The result of Trump's passivity is likely to encourage more such Russian assaults. And that happened twice within a week.

JOHNSON: Because I think, you know, Paul Ryan pretty full-throatedly during the campaign, you know, condemned Trump and distanced the rest of his party from Trump. NPR's Eleanor Beardsley reports that despite their differences, the two presidents seemed to have formed a bond.
