Trump attacks report that he’s worried about son’s exposure to Mueller inquiry


Donald Trump rounded on a report on Sunday that he is worried about son Donald Trump Jr’s exposure to special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia-collusion investigation. In one of a series of early morning tweets, the US president issued in apparent reaction to a CNN report, Trump said: “Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower.”

He continued: “This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics – and it went nowhere. I did not know about it!” Trump has launched a series of new public attacks on Mueller and his team in recent weeks, which has been interpreted as possible signs the president is anxious about the inquiry reaching his family.(theguardian)…[+]
