Giuliani says Trump team will respond to Mueller about interview later Wednesday

President Donald Trump has been urged to stop tweeting about the 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Trump's top advisers and several Russians, a source familiar with discussions tells CNN.

"That is, I guess, the ultimate distraction from what's really going on in this country which is, you have a Republican president, a very conservative president, who is getting stuff done", Trump Jr. said. Calling the reported concerns a "complete fabrication", the President acknowledged that the meeting was accepted on the premise that his son would get dirt on former presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton.

This is hardly the first time the President has reacted to a news story on Twitter and, as a result, helped give that story more attention.

President Donald Trump's legal team plans to send its counteroffer to special counsel Robert Mueller regarding a potential interview later Wednesday, Rudy Giuliani said.

Mr. Sekulow also said if Mr. Mueller were to subpoena Mr. Trump, the question over whether a sitting president could be subpoenaed by a special counsel would likely go before the Supreme Court since the question has never been tested in the courts. President Trump and his son deny any collusion, and the president has tweeted that "collusion is not a crime".

Giuliani wouldn't say if that area has to do with collusion or obstruction. He's chafed at coverage of Manafort's trial, now underway in Virginia, and is said to be privately voicing concern about the potential legal exposure his son may face.

These new comments come only a day after President Trump admitted that the goal of the notorious meeting was to collect damaging information on his opponent Hillary Clinton from a foreign entity and did not, in fact, pertain to Russian adoption, contrary to the previous remarks of the president's staffers and campaign aides. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders later said that Trump had "weighed in" on the statement.

Sekulow said on Sunday his erroneous denial about Trump's involvement was a mistake based on "bad information".
