In this fact-checking video, CNN’s Jake Tapper and FactCheck.org examine Donald Trump Jr.’s shifting statements about his June 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower.
President Donald Trump emphasized that an attorney who met with his eldest son in 2016 was a “Russian lawyer” and “not a [Russian] government lawyer.” That may be true, but Donald Trump Jr. had agreed to sit down with a “Russian government attorney,” according to his emails.
