But the president's son's own emails show that he eagerly agreed to a meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, after an intermediary wrote in an email that she would provide "very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump", the candidate.

Akhmetshin said he hasn't been contacted by the FBI or Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office about his meeting with Trump Jr. but he said he is willing to talk with them.

The president also fired off a flurry of tweets turning up the heat on Senate Republicans to finally pass their revised health care bill: "Republican Senators are working hard to get their failed ObamaCare replacement approved". Nine? Ten? Perhaps, to quote Mean Girls character Cady Heron, "The limit does not exist".

Watchdog groups filed a complaint against Donald Trump Jr., Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and former campaign chief Paul Manafort on Thursday with the Federal Election Commission, which oversees elections, arguing the three violated the law by meeting with the Russian. With regard to how the information came out, as I said, that was information that was controlled not by my client, not by the president, it was controlled by Donald Trump Jr., and they made a decision on how to release that out.

"If we keep up this kind of dialogue, there is a chance to hope that this dialogue will continue to develop in the future".

Jay Sekulow, a lawyer for the president, said on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos".

Representative Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee, said the report about Akhmetshin "if accurate, adds another deeply disturbing fact about this secret meeting".

"With all of its phony unnamed sources & highly slanted & even fraudulent reporting, #Fake News is DISTORTING DEMOCRACY in our country!" the president tweeted on Sunday. But to Trump Jr. he probably was just some Russian guy. I think they mean the only evidence.

Throughout the week, additional details about the meeting's contents and attendees emerged. He became a U.S. citizen in 2009. He denies ever serving in such a capacity.

Akhmetshin was not available for comment. Imagine what kind of uproar would have occurred in conservative circles had it been shown that Chelsea Clinton met with Russians who had dirt on Donald Trump.
