Attorney Glenn Zeitz questioned Trump under oath in an eminent-domain case in which Trump sought to take control of an elderly woman's Atlantic City, New Jersey, property so he could build a parking lot for one of his casinos.

The president has expressed his eagerness to testify but his legal team has reservations. Trump seems to be arguing against his own point by assuring us that he had nothing to do with this meeting, which - oh, by the way - was totally on the up-and-up.

"We have to make a decision based on the law and what's best for our client", said Sekulow, adding that it will take time to make that determination.

President Donald Trump singles out the media during his rally on August 2, 2018 at the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza in Wilkes Barre, Pa.

Donald Trump posted what may be his most "problematic" Tweet to date, as the Washington Post called it, at least when it comes to his legal defense in the ongoing Russian Federation collusion investigation.

Sekulow slammed the notion that the president's tweets could be used against him.

Mueller and Trump's legal team are now negotiating terms for a sit-down interview that would likely cover topics ranging from his campaign's ties to Russian Federation and obstruction of justice. "The president has a First Amendment right to put his opinions out there".

'The entire Department of Justice are under what? The article enumerates the powers of the executive branch of the federal government. And that's why I go back to saying that at the end of the day this is all about the constitution.

Iran Receives More European Airplanes Ahead of U.S. Sanction Renewal
This accounted for 35 percent of Iranian exports last month, according to ship-tracking data compiled by Bloomberg . USA officials last week said Iran carried out a similar exercise, though Tehran did not immediately acknowledge it.

ABC's George Stephanopoulos pressed Sekulow on the attorney's previous assertions that the president had nothing to do with writing a statement to The New York Times, seeking to explain the Trump Tower meeting on behalf of his son.

Sekulow also said that Trump has not decided whether he would voluntarily sit for an interview with U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who was appointed to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election and any possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Moscow officials. But the speech never happened, and Trump Jr. has said that the Russians failed to produce their promised "dirt" on Clinton.

Trump has reportedly told several of his advisers and friends that he's anxious the investigation could destroy the lives of "innocent and decent people", namely his son.

President Trump has admitted for the first time that the goal of his son's meeting with a Russian lawyer before the 2016 elections was to gather information about his opponent, Hillary Clinton. Jared Kushner and then-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort were also in attendance.

While originally Trump, a Republican, said the meeting was about adoptions, on Sunday he said on Twitter that it was about getting information on Clinton.

"The Fake News hates me saying that they are the Enemy of the People only because they know it's TRUE", Trump tweeted Sunday.

"Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower", the president tweeted.

Trump tweeted that his son met with a Kremlin-connected lawyer to collect information about his political opponent. I did not know about it! Working with a foreign national with the intent of influencing a US election could violate multiple laws, according to legal experts.
