The White House confirmed Tuesday that President Trump had been involved in drafting a statement for his son Donald Trump Jr. after reports emerged last month that he had met with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign.

"The statement that Don Jr. issued is true. The President weighed in as any father would based on the limited information that he had," White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Tuesday at the daily press briefing. "This is all discussion frankly with no consequence. There was no follow up; it was disclosed to the proper parties, which is how the New York Times found out about it to begin with."

Except most fathers don't have their sons conducting unseemly meetings on behalf of a campaign and use taxpayer resources to protect him.

VP Mike Pence was previously unaware of Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer, his spox tells CNN

Pence is an unaware VP. He was also "unaware" of General Flynn's contact with the Russian ambassador.

He needs to be represented by Nathan Thurm.

Let's talk about this part...

Trump, they say, is increasingly acting as his own lawyer, strategist and publicist, often disregarding the recommendations of the professionals he has hired.

“He refuses to sit still,” the presidential adviser said. “He doesn’t think he’s in any legal jeopardy, so he really views this as a political problem he is going to solve by himself.”

...because no way this ends well if that is case.

As any father would is the line that sticks out. I disagree that most fathers would weigh in to help craft such a misleading statement. And because Trump isn't any father, he's the fucking POTUS, which means he engaged in helping his son lie to the American people.
Nothing out of Donnie's mouth, including anyone speaking for him, is to be believed.

Special Counsel Mueller Impanels Washington Grand Jury in Russia Probe: Expansion beyond Flynn grand jury is a sign the investigation in election meddling is ramping up

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has impaneled a grand jury in Washington to investigate Russia’s interference in the 2016 elections, a sign that his inquiry is growing in intensity and entering a new phase, according to two people familiar with the matter.

The grand jury, which began its work in recent weeks, is a sign that Mr. Mueller’s inquiry is ramping up and that it will likely continue for months. Mr. Mueller is investigating Russia’s efforts to influence the 2016 election and whether President Donald Trump’s campaign or associates colluded with the Kremlin as part of that effort.

A spokesman for Mr. Mueller, Joshua Stueve, declined to comment. Moscow has denied seeking to influence the election, and Mr. Trump has vigorously disputed allegations of collusion. The president has called Mr. Mueller’s inquiry a “witch hunt.”

Ty Cobb, special counsel to the president, said he wasn’t aware that Mr. Mueller had started using a new grand jury. “Grand jury matters are typically secret,” Mr. Cobb said. “The White House favors anything that accelerates the conclusion of his work fairly.…The White House is committed to fully cooperating with Mr. Mueller.”

“This is yet a further sign that there is a long-term, large-scale series of prosecutions being contemplated and being pursued by the special counsel,” said Stephen I. Vladeck, a law professor at the University of Texas. “If there was already a grand jury in Alexandria looking at Flynn, there would be no need to reinvent the wheel for the same guy. This suggests that the investigation is bigger and wider than Flynn, perhaps substantially so.”

Thomas Zeno, a federal prosecutor for 29 years before becoming a lawyer at the Squire Patton Boggs law firm, said the grand jury is “confirmation that this is a very vigorous investigation going on.”

“This doesn’t mean he is going to bring charges,” Mr. Zeno cautioned. “But it shows he is very serious. He wouldn’t do this if it were winding down.”

I do not expect much to come of it on the collusion front, but I think the investigation is more serious than Trumpkins wanted people to believe. As far as collusion goes, Manafort and Flynn acting on their own is a for sure possibility, but probably not a coordinated effort by the campaign. What would not surprise me is if there were questionable, maybe even illegal, financial schemes and activities that involved Trump. This is what has always caught my eye more than collusion; that he has financial dealings with Russia that he does not want to disclose for whatever reason.

And +1 to GreenWay.

In the months that followed, investigators turned up intercepted communications appearing to show efforts by Russian operatives to coordinate with Trump associates on damaging Hillary Clinton's election prospects, officials said. CNN has learned those communications included references to campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

CNN is also reporting Mueller may see some "low-hanging fruit" (easy/easy-ish indictments) with respect to Manafort, Kushner and Flynn.
___________

For what purpose? To try to get them to spill the beans about something greater?

Exactly. Hopefully, the seriousness of the charges is not lost and they threaten years in federal prison for conspiracy if people don't talk about how the president approved all of the collusion, which he abso-fucking-lutely did.

Mueller Seeks White House Documents on Flynn

WASHINGTON — Investigators working for the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, recently asked the White House for documents related to the former national security adviser Michael T. Flynn, and have questioned witnesses about whether he was secretly paid by the Turkish government during the final months of the presidential campaign, according to people close to the investigation.

Though not a formal subpoena, the document request is the first known instance of Mr. Mueller’s team asking the White House to hand over records.

In interviews with potential witnesses in recent weeks, prosecutors and F.B.I. agents have spent hours poring over the details of Mr. Flynn’s business dealings with a Turkish-American businessman who worked last year with Mr. Flynn and his consulting business, the Flynn Intel Group.

Trump keeps saying trust him yet he and his staff couldn't vet Flynn to know he was working for a Turkey and the campaign.

FBI conducted predawn raid of former Trump campaign chairman Manafort’s home

FBI agents raided the Alexandria home of President Trump’s former campaign chairman late last month, using a search warrant to seize documents and other materials, according to people familiar with the special counsel investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Federal agents appeared at Paul Manafort’s home without advance warning in the predawn hours of July 26, the day after he met voluntarily with the staff for the Senate Intelligence Committee.

The search warrant was wide-ranging and FBI agents working with special counsel Robert S. Mueller III departed the home with various records.

The F.B.I. typically seeks such records when investigating violations of the federal Bank Secrecy Act, which requires Americans to report their foreign banking accounts.
