Trump denies knowing of 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russians

'NO, I did NOT know of the meeting with my son, Don jr.,' Trump said Friday in a series of tweets.

In other tweets, he attacked "the Fake News" for asking "dumb questions" and again decried special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into his campaign's ties to Russian Federation as "a rigged Witch Hunt".

On Wednesday, Davis compared the Cohen tape to the Watergate tapes that ultimately forced Republican president Richard Nixon to resign in 1974 as impeachment loomed.

Trump Jr responded "I love it" when first offered the political "dirt" on Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee.

Trump Jr. told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he did not remember with whom he spoke at that time, but others testified that his father, Donald Trump, uses a blocked line.

Mr Trump was also keen to make his own statements on the global economy on Friday, telling reporters during a briefing at the White House that the United States was "the economic envy of the entire world".

Previously Trump has denied knowing in advance that the meeting was going to take place, and he has denied that there was any collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation.

The Justice Department has been investigating Cohen for months, raiding his home, office and hotel room in April in search of documents related to a $130,000 payment the attorney facilitated before the 2016 election to Stormy Daniels, an adult-film actress who says she had sex with Trump in 2006. On Wednesday, Trump expressed disbelief that Cohen would have taped conversations with him, a day after an audio recording of a conversation between the two men was aired on US television.

When asked whether he wanted Trump to win the 2016 election, Putin replied, "Yes, I did". If this story wasn't about Jr. seeking dirt, it would've been about Trump campaign officials meeting with a Russian lawyer who is lobbying against US-imposed sanctions on Russia.

Rivera said Cohen was somewhat of a "consigliere" to Trump, in that he was the "one key person we tell all of our life story to".

Just two days before the meeting was set to take place, then-candidate Trump promised to make a "major speech" about "all of the things that have taken place with the Clintons".

While Rob [Goldstone] said he would send me the names of the attendees for the June 9th meeting, he never did. Russian Federation has denied meddling in the election.

"The only Collusion with Russian Federation was with the Democrats, so now they are looking at my Tweets (along with 53 million other people) - the rigged Witch Hunt continues!" How stupid and unfair to our Country, ' he tweeted Friday.
