"Having said that again, none of that is violation of the law, that's more process".

Sekulow defended Trump and his son in a series of appearances Sunday on five television networks.

Separately, on CBS' Face the Nation, Warner said there were "trolls", or paid individuals who worked for Russian services, who tried to interfere in the election and disseminate fake news. "The president had Secret Service protection at that point, and that raised a question with me", Jay Sekulow, a member of Trump's legal team, said on Sunday on the ABC news program "This Week."... Trump's chief strategist, Steve Bannon, sought to model the White House's Russian Federation war room in the vein of former President Bill Clinton's operation during the investigations of his White House in the 1990s, two people familiar with the matter said.

Though, it is still unclear whether Veselnitskaya actually fulfilled the promised compromising information about Clinton or not.

The explosive revelations led to a row over whether the meeting was illegal, as political campaigns are banned from accepting donations or other contributions of value from foreign nationals.

She said the Trump campaign would need to research it more, and after that Mr. Trump Jr. lost interest, according to Mr. Akhmetshin.

"I'm not sure why we take anybody in the senior level of the Trump administration at their word", he said.

The meeting has heightened questions about whether Mr. Trump's campaign coordinated with the Russian government during the election, which is the focus of federal and congressional investigations.

Moscow has denied any interference and the president and Trump Jr. have denied any collusion.

"We literally walked in" without any security check, he told the outlet.

The department said that Veselnitskaya was allowed to enter the United States on multiple occasions between September 2015 and February 2016 under a "Significant Public Benefit Parole" document requested by the Justice Department so she could participate in a court case for a client.

The number of people known to have been at the meeting also changed over time.

Also at the meeting was Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and then-campaign manager Paul Manafort.
