CBS News: Secret Service Rejects Claim by Trump Lawyer That Agents Screened Trump Jr. Meeting

The following is an excellent article written by Rebecca Shabad on the CBS News website on July 17, 2017 titled “Secret Service Rejects Claim by Trump Lawyer That Agents Screened Trump Jr Meeting” and I quote:

“Secret Service rejects claim by Trump lawyer that agents screened Trump Jr. meeting”

The Secret Service (USSS) is rejecting the suggestion by President Trump’s attorney, Jay Sekulow, that its agents would have vetted the people who attended the June 2016 meeting with Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer offering compromising information on Hillary Clinton.

“We confirm that he was not a protectee of the USSS at that time,” USSS Mason Brayman said of the meeting.

Because the president’s eldest son was not a protectee at that time, the Secret Service wouldn’t have screened anyone he was meeting with.

In an interview Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Sekulow suggested the Secret Service should have prevented the meeting.

“I wonder why the Secret Service, if this was nefarious, why the Secret Service allowed these people in,” he said. “The president had Secret Service protection at that point, and that raised a question with me.”

The meeting was held at Trump Tower and was attended by Trump Jr., then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort, the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, Russian-American lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin, Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya and translator Anatoli Samochornov.

(WHEN THE SECRET SERVICE DOESN’T EVEN AGREE WITH REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP’S CLAIM THAT HE OR ANY OF HIS FAMILY HAD ANY INVOLVEMENT WITH THE RUSSIANS, WHICH IS A LIE, WHEN THEY HAVE THE EVIDENCE TO PROVE DIFFERENTLY.  THE ONLY QUESTION IS–WHEN IS SPECIAL PROSECUTOR, ROBERT MUELLER GOING TO START CALLING WITNESSES TO TESTIFY UNDER OATH IN PUBLIC???

About tim074

I'm a retired dairy farmer that was a member of the National Farmer's Organization (NFO). Before going farming, I spent 4 years in the United States Air Force where I saved up enough money to get my down payment to go farming. I also enjoy writing and reading biographies and I write about myself as well as articles and excerpts I find interesting. I'm specifically interested in finances, particularly in the banking industry because if it wasn't for help from my local Community Bank, I never could have started farming which I was successful at. So, I'm real interested in the Small Business Administration and I know they are the ones creating jobs. I have been a member of Common Cause and am now a member of Public Citizen as well as AARP. I have, in the past, written over 150 articles on the Obama Blog (my.barackobama.com) and I'd like to tie these two sites together. I'm also on Twitter, MySpace and Facebook and find these outlets terrifically interesting particularly what many of these people did concerning the uprising in the Arab world. I believe this is a smaller world than we think it is and my goal is to try to bring people together to live in peace because management needs labor like labor needs management. Up to now, that hasn't been so easy to find.
