The New York Times reported that US President Donald Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. had a meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya during his father 2016 presidential campaign with the promise of receiving damaging information about Trump’s rival, Hillary Clinton.

The paper quoted a statement from Donald Trump Jr. in which he apparently acknowledged the meeting:

“After pleasantries were exchanged, the woman stated that she had information that individuals connected to Russia were funding the Democratic National Committee and supporting Ms Clinton,” the Times quoted Donald Trump Jr. as saying.

“Her statements were vague, ambiguous and made no sense. No details or supporting information was provided or even offered. It quickly became clear that she had no meaningful information.”

Trump’s campaign chairman during his candidacy period, Paul Manafort, and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, were reported to also have attended the meeting, the New York Times reported. The daily newspaper said that three advisers to the White House had confirmed the information.

Trump ‘not aware’ of meeting

Allegations of the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia have cast a long shadow over Trump’s first months in office.

The Kremlin has denied various US intelligence agencies’ conclusion that Moscow did try to tilt the election in Trump’s favor, using means ranging from hacking into the emails of senior Democrats to actively spreading misinformation campaigns about Hillary Clinton.

Trump himself has repeatedly denied any collusion. In regards to his son’s reported meeting with Veselnitskaya, spokesman for Trump’s legal team, Mark Corallo, commented that he was “not aware of and did not attend” the meeting.

US-Russia cyber security unit

Trump said on Sunday he and Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed forming a cyber security unit.

“Putin & I discussed forming an impenetrable Cyber Security unit so that election hacking, & many other negative things, will be guarded and safe,” he said following their talks at the G20 in Hamburg.

His suggestion was criticized by Republicans who said Moscow could not be trusted after its alleged meddling in the 2016 US election.

“It’s not the dumbest idea I have ever heard but it’s pretty close,” Republican senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina told NBC’s “Meet the Press” program on Sunday.

Republican Senator Marco Rubio Florida said Trump’s idea to partner with Putin on a ‘Cyber Security Unit’ was akin to partnering with Syrian President Bashar al Assad on a ‘Chemical Weapons Unit.’

Later on Sunday, Trump sent out another message by Twitter saying “The fact that President Putin and I discussed a Cyber Security unit doesn’t mean I think it can happen. It can’t-but a ceasefire can,& did!”
