Trump tweeted that his son met with a Kremlin-connected lawyer to collect information about his political opponent.
Trump's claim that he did not know about the Trump Tower meeting is also "problematic", according to The Post.
He said that Trump's legal team is inclined "at this point" to advise Trump not to agree to be interviewed by special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 USA election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.
The meeting was attended by the president's son as well as Paul Manafort, then chairman of Trump's presidential campaign; Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner; and several Russians, including the lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, and their representatives.
Pompeo Renews Calls for the Return of American Pastor Imprisoned in Turkey
Brunson had denied all charges and his case has become a cause celebre for US evangelicals and the Trump administration. Erdogan, who is known for his sometimes provocative anti-Western rhetoric, has yet to comment.
Trump Jr.'s testimony to Congress contained a similar defense as his father's Sunday tweet, indicating that he saw no reason not to accept a meeting that could yield important information about Clinton, even though he was told that it was part of an effort by the government of a hostile power.
United States media then reported that the USA president had been involved in the initial statement his son issued on the meeting.
It was later reported that was false and the president was involved in constructing his son's misleading statement.
Trump has repeatedly denied collusion with Russian Federation or any other wrongdoing. This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics - and it went nowhere.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has denied allegations by US intelligence agencies that his government meddled and Trump denies collusion, describing the Mueller investigation as a political witch hunt that should be shut down.
India's Iranian oil intakes jump to record high in July
The nuclear deal lifted worldwide sanctions in return for Iran limiting its nuclear program and allowing regular inspections. United States officials are now travelling the world in a dramatic effort to stop other countries from buying Iranian oil.
Trump's team is trying to limit the scope of questions Mueller's team can ask of the president. "You have to look at what laws, rules, regulations, statutes are purportedly violated here".
"He walks in, he wants to take over, he wants to make the deposition his deposition, even though it's mine".
"I have no knowledge at all of Don Jr. being told he is the target of any investigation and I have no knowledge of him being interviewed by the special counsel", Mr. Sekulow said Sunday.
So I think it's very important to point out that in a situation like this, you have over time facts develop. "I had bad information at that point".
The fusillade of tweets came from Bedminster, Trump's golf course, where he is ensconced in a property that bears his name at every turn and is less checked in by staffers. "Now, that's a different statement than saying that there's proof beyond a reasonable doubt of a criminal conspiracy", Rep. Adam Schiff of California, the ranking member Democrat on the House intelligence committee, said on CBS's "Face the Nation" show on Sunday. "We are fully confident of the accuracy and reliability of the information that has been provided by Donald Trump Jr.in the various investigations". Mueller was appointed to take over the probe after the firing.
