President Donald Trump reiterated on Twitter that "most politicians would have gone to a meeting like the one Don Jr. attended in order to get info on an opponent." It is politics, he added.
Donald Trump Jr. arranged a meeting in June 2016 with a representative of the Russian government becauseTrump Jr. will be handed indecent news about Hilary Clinton, his father's opponent in presidency during that time, making the meeting controversial.
Trump Jr. said that there was nothing said about Clinton. And it was to gather information regarding the opponent. After releasing the news regarding the meeting, Trump Jr. sent an email chain that he loved the suggestion of the Kremlin-led effort to assist in his father's campaign. The said meeting was attended by Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, and Paul Manafort, his campaign adviser.
On the contrary, researchers from both parties accept that it is possible for two parties to fish out information about their opponents, but for experts asking help from another country is a reason to be concerned.
