President Donald Trump's growing frustration with the ongoing Russia investigation spilled over onto Twitter again this weekend.
"Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower. This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics—and it went nowhere. I did not know about it!" —President Donald Trump
It confirms the 2016 meeting in Trump Tower was about gathering opposition research from a Russian lawyer with Kremlin ties, and not primarily the issue of international adoptions as previously stated.
Trump's lawyer Jay Sekulow says that isn't a crime.
"The question is, what law, statute, rule or regulation has been violated? Nobody has pointed to one," Sekulow said to ABC's This Week.
Trump's tweet came on the heels of another tweet last week in which he said Attorney General Jeff Sessions "should stop this rigged witch hunt right now."
"...This is a terrible situation and Attorney General Jeff Sessions should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further. Bob Mueller is totally conflicted, and his 17 Angry Democrats that are doing his dirty work are a disgrace to USA!" —President Donald Trump
Democrats call the statement obstruction of justice, plain and simple.
But Sekulow says, not so fast. "Obstruction of justice by tweet is absurd," he said.
Meanwhile, visions of a blue wave in the upcoming midterm elections have some Democrats talking impeachment again.
"Two in three Democratic voters say if they win the House, they should begin the process of impeaching president Trump. Would you support that?" CNN's Jake Tapper asked former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, a possible 2020 presidential contender.
