Trump Jr. lashes out over ‘nonsense meeting’ with Russian lawyer

Donald Trump Jr. on Tuesday morning lashed out at the furor over his contact with a Russian lawyer during the height of the campaign, calling it a "nonsense meeting."

“Media & Dems are extremely invested in the Russia story,” he wrote. “If this nonsense meeting is all they have after a yr, I understand the desperation!”

Trump Jr. recently came under fire after the New York Times revealed the June 2016 meeting, in which the Kremlin-linked lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, allegedly pledged to share damaging information about Hillary Clinton.

He has denied any wrongdoing and has defended himself via Twitter multiple times since the story broke Saturday. However, his explanation about the circumstances of the meeting shifted over the weekend.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the lead Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said on "Morning Joe" on Tuesday that Trump Jr.’s various narratives about the meeting “does not inspire a lot of confidence” in his statements.

“He’s had to evolve it many times since then,” Schiff said. “And he’ll probably have to evolve it many times in the future — I don’t give that a whole lot of credit.”
