That is a far different explanation than Trump gave 13 months ago, when a statement dictated by the president but released under the name of Donald Trump Jr., read: "We primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children that was active and popular with American families years ago".
Trump Jr. and his attorney have insisted he has always told the truth.
The president's tweet about the meeting was one in a thread in which he reiterated criticism of Mueller, calling his probe "the most one sided witch hunt in the history of our country" peppered with "lies and corruption".
In saying that he isn't concerned, Trump has nevertheless torpedoed his past defense of the meeting in claiming it was indeed about getting dirt on his presidential campaign opponent, Hilary Clinton.
Mr. Trump's attorney Jay Sekulow defended the legality of the meeting Sunday on ABC's "This Week," saying no law or statute has been violated. However, he said only Mueller can determine whether the evidence rises to the level of criminal activity that is "beyond a reasonable doubt".
Leaked Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Video Reveals 512GB Capacity
If these series of leaks continue, we may not have to tune in to the Galaxy Unpacked live stream on 9th August. That adds up to 1TB in total storage, which is more than what users can ask for from a smartphone.
USA media then reported that the U.S. president had been involved in the initial statement his son issued on the meeting.
When asked to describe Trump's demeanor during his 1996 deposition, Zeitz said, "Donald was the Donald you see now".
"The Russians offered damaging info on your opponent".
That's unsafe, Schiff said, since National Intelligence Director Dan Coats and other top administration officials warned just last week that the Russians are continuing their efforts to influence USA voters in this year's midterm elections.
Following the meeting, Trump Jr. took part in three phone calls, as House Intelligence Committee Vice-Chair Adam Schiff pointed out. "None of this is normal or credible".
Before he was president, private citizen Donald Trump sat for several depositions in legal cases related to his businesses.
This is another reason why Trump shouldn't meet with Mueller. He told both NBC News and Russian officials visiting the Oval Office that he had done so because of the Russia investigation.
Scattered protests in Iran as U.S. sanctions loom
The Iranian rial has dropped to a record low amid growing concerns about renewed US sanctions, which kick in on Monday. Also last month, China , which is Iran's biggest customer, said it did not accept unilateral sanctions against Iran.
What did Donald Trump know, and when?
The Trump Tower meeting also included Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and his campaign chairman at the time, Paul Manafort, who is on trial over tax and bank fraud charges after being indicted by Mueller.
He had one observation that should spell disaster for the Trump legal team, however. And at a trio of rallies, he escalated his already vitriolic rhetoric toward the media, savaging the press for unflattering coverage and, he feels, bias.
Trump is denying he's concerned about the infamous Trump Tower meeting attended by his son, claiming it was "totally legal and done all the time in politics" while adding 'I did not know about it'.
The Trump administration maintains they believed the goal of the meeting was to get intelligence on Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, however, they have since described the meeting as a "waste of time".
Sekulow said those include a 2011 "business dispute" between Mueller and the Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Va., over club fees.
Others who have been close to the President - including his former White House communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon - have suggested the President at the very least knew shortly after the fact.
