    HOW DONALD TRUMP JR.’S BLUNDER JUST WEAKENED HIS FATHER
    It multiplies conflict among staff and family—and gives Robert Mueller and investigators new leverage

    ... the president’s advisers huddled, drafting a statement to give to The New York Times. The paper was about to publish a story revealing a pre-election meeting between Donald Trump Jr.and a Kremlin-connected lawyer. The quote attributed to the First Son—that he primarily discussed American restrictions on Russian adoptions—remained operative for less than 24 hours, until the Times reported that Don Jr.’s larger motivation was collecting dirt on Hillary Clinton.

    New Trump Article of Impeachment Claims President Obstructed Justice, Needs an Intervention


    Representatives Brad Sherman, of California, and Al Green, of Texas, introduced House Resolution 438 just more than 24 hours after the president's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., published a set of emails confirming that he and other aides knowingly attended a meeting with a Russian lawyer in hopes of getting damaging information about Hillary Clinton.

    But Sherman said he hoped the article introduced Wednesday could inspire a Trump intervention as Russia-related events, like the possible testimony of former Campaign Manager Paul Manafort, continue to unfold; and maybe it's already working—though Trump has been tweeting up a storm, as usual, he hasn't made any public appearances in days ...

    White House shakes up legal team as probe gathers steam


    ... Ty Cobb, who has represented multiple figures in Washington scandals dating back to the Clinton administration, will be joining the White House staff at the end of this month as a special counsel to the president, charged with handling all legal and media-related issues relating to the Russia probe, sources said.

    At the same time, Jamie Gorelick, a politically well-connected lawyer who has been representing Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law, is turning over all responsibilities for the Russia investigation to Abbe Lowell, another well-known Washington criminal defense lawyer ...

    Russian-American lobbyist says Russian lawyer presented documents in Trump Jr. meeting


    ... Rinat Akhmetshin, a Russian-American lobbyist who served in the Soviet military, told The Associated Press on Friday that the lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, presented documents that she believed detailed the flow of illicit funds to the Democratic National Committee.

    In Akhmetshin's recounting, Veselnitskaya suggested to those in the meeting — including Donald Trump Jr.; President Donald Trump's campaign chairman at the time, Paul Manafort; and Jared Kushner, who's now a White House senior adviser — that they make the contents of the documents public, she said that doing so could help Trump's campaign, Akhmetshin said.

    Trump administration: There's no evidence of collusion. 12 legal experts: Yes, there is
    17 legal experts on what Donald Trump Jr.'s emails about the Russia meeting prove — and don't prove


    ... I reached out to 17 legal experts and asked them these questions directly, twelve said that the case for collusion and conspiracy is near conclusive, though it’s not entirely clear what the legal consequences will be. Five experts believe the circumstantial evidence is damning but we don’t yet know enough to draw any conclusions,
