Trump lawyer: If Mueller subpoenas president, case will go to Supreme Court

In a tweet over the weekend, Trump reversed course on his explanation of a 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer in Trump Tower.

"The Fake News hates me saying that they are the Enemy of the People only because they know it's TRUE", Trump tweeted from his Bedminster golf resort in New Jersey.

On Sunday, one of the president's attorneys defended the 2016 meeting as something that would not have been illegal under any federal statute. "Nobody's pointed to one". They described the statement, which had not mentioned that the Russian lawyer was expected to bring damaging information about Clinton, as "short but accurate".

In a tweet early Sunday morning, Trump said the meeting was arranged "to get information on an opponent", and is "totally legal".

Email released by Donald Jr. himself showed he had been keen on the meeting because his father's campaign was purportedly being offered potentially damaging information on Clinton.

CNN reports that other recent tweets from the president, including those attacking special counsel Robert Mueller and the Russian Federation investigation, didn't trigger the same warnings from Trump's staff.

Despite strong language against California's auto policies in the proposed rule, the EPA may be open to some compromise. And today, twenty state attorneys general announced their intent to sue the administration over the SAFE Vehicles Rule.

Part of Mr Mueller's investigation centres around the meeting between Donald Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr, and Russian lawyers, just months before the election in June 2016.

Manafort is now on trial for unrelated bank and tax fraud charges as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, and Sekulow said that to his knowledge, Trump Jr.is not the target of a federal probe stemming from the meeting.

According to Law and Crime, Rubin, who is known for her Right Turn blog on the Washington Post, suggested on MSNBC's AM Joy that Trump should step down as president before he is forced out, and possibly ask Vice President Mike Pence to "pardon" him.

We know that it would absolutely shock you if we said that people in the White House aren't always on board with the President Trump's use of his Twitter account. The surprising claim in Trump's tweet is that it is legal for a campaign to get information from a foreign entity about a political opponent. This would make sense that Candidate Trump was aware, given the fact on June 7th, Candidate Trump said he was going to do a speech about Hillary Clinton's wrongdoings (the speech never happened).

In addition, If Trump is subpoenaed by a special counsel investigating contacts between the 2016 Trump election campaign and Russian Federation, his lawyers will attempt to quash it in court, one of Trump's lawyers said on Sunday.

Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos on "This Week" Sunday that he has no knowledge of the president's son being a target of Mueller's probe. "They can also cause War!" Mueller was appointed to take over the probe after the firing. Although most of the attention came from Twitter, the photo was originally posted to Facebook here.
