He said he appeared in jeans and T-shirt.

"I never worked for the Russian government".

NBC said Veselnitskaya denied having any connection to the Kremlin and insisted the meeting was to discuss U.S. sanctions against Russia, not the presidential campaign. "With all of its phony unnamed sources & highly slanted & even fraudulent reporting, #Fake News is DISTORTING DEMOCRACY in our country!"

Futerfas is known for representing individuals and companies in "traditional and white collar cases, trials and appeals, SEC investigations and regulatory matters", according to his firm's website.

"Well, I wonder why the Secret Service, if this was nefarious, why the Secret Service allowed these people in", Jay Sekulow said on ABC's "This Week" when asked if he thought the FBI should have been notified about the meeting.

Sekulow reiterated Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" that Trump did not know about the meeting, saying: "The President was not engaged in this, was not aware of it".

The attorney's focus on the law appears aimed at moving beyond the shifting accounts of the meeting given by Trump Jr. Richard Burr (R., N.C.), chairman of the committee, is working with him in a bipartisan fashion, along with several others of both parties.

"This could be a good issue to expose how the DNC is accepting bad money", Veselnitskaya reportedly told the Trump associates at the time, as recalled by Ahkmetshin. Soon thereafter, multiple news organizations reported that Anatoli Samochornov, a Russian-American translator, was also in the room; Samochornov wouldn't confirm or deny his presence, citing nondisclosure agreements.

He cited Attorney General Jeff Sessions' and former national security adviser Michael Flynn's denials (later retracted) that they met with Russian officials.

Sekulow made the Sunday talk show rounds and repeatedly said the president didn't know about the meeting and his son didn't break any laws by holding it in the first place.

Political opponents see the email revelations as the most concrete evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the election.

Ahkmetshin told AP that he did not consider the meeting to be "substantive" and had been expecting a "more serious" conversation.

SEKULOW: it's interesting there isn't one. but go ahead, Jake.
