Judge Andrew Napolitano took a closer look at the potential crimes committed in the meeting involving Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner and Russian nationals promising dirt on Hillary Clinton in 2016. 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!" the president tweeted Sunday morning.

It is not the first time the president acknowledged the existence of the meeting using this line of defense, but it is the president's most blunt admission that the objective was to obtain damaging information against his then opponent, Hillary Clinton, in the presidential election.

A letter from President Trump's legal team to Special Counsel Robert Mueller reveals the president dictated the statement on the Trump Tower meeting; chief White House correspondent John Roberts reports.

He initially denied he met with any Russians on behalf of the campaign and now he admits the meeting was to get damaging information about Clinton. Betraying no surprise or misgivings about the offer from a hostile foreign power, Trump Jr. replied: "If it's what you say I love it especially later in the summer".

One of Mr Trump's lawyers, Jay Sekulow, said on Sunday that the meeting had nor broken any laws.

Barcelona refuse to dampen Paul Pogba rumours
Pogba returned for pre-season training on Monday after winning the World Cup with France , and sources close to him say he would be open to a move.

The New York Times reported last month that Mueller has been reviewing Trump's tweets as part of his probe into whether the President obstructed justice.

He claimed the meeting was "totally legal" - questionable - and asserted he "did not know about it!"

If Trump declines the interview and Mueller subpoenas Trump to testify, it would spark a constitutional fight in the courts, Sekulow said.

U.S. commentators have argued that Mr Trump's new admission that the meeting was to gain information about Mrs Clinton shows that the earlier statement was misleading.

The first is that Trump appears to have broken some new ground here when it comes to admitting the true goal of the Trump Tower meeting with a Kremlin-aligned lawyer - and even further contradicted the initial statement he helped draft about it. "And I fear that the message that the Kremlin cares most about is what they hear from Donald Trump, and that is still one of denial and cover for the Russians".

The bridge partly collapsed and fire spread to a auto park below, where several more vehicles exploded at about 14:00 (12:00 GMT). Some people were reportedly hit by flying glass as windows shattered in nearby buildings.

One part of Mueller's inquiry and congressional investigations has focused on a meeting months before the November election in Trump Tower in NY between Russian officials, Donald Trump Jr., the president's eldest son, and other campaign aides. American intelligence officials say Russian Federation is targeting the November congressional elections, which will determine whether or not Republicans keep control of both chambers of the U.S. Congress.

Scaramucci spoke out about Trump's war on the media soon after the President went on a Twitter tirade, calling the press the "enemy of the people".

He called the "Fake" media "very unsafe and sick".

When the source cited by CNN expressed apparent concern about the oxygen the president is supplying to the topic, that source very well could have been expressing concern about the obstruction element.

Increased US hostility has also driven a run on Iran's currency, which has lost around two-thirds of its value in six months. Just ahead of the re-imposed sanctions, Iran acquired five new European commercial planes, according to AP.
