The Trump-Russian meeting story is quickly changing
Two major developments
Donald Trump has changed his story on whether or not he knew about the meeting between his son and someone Trump Jr described as a Russian government lawyer.
Earlier this week, he was asked if he knew about the meeting and said "No, that I didn't know until a couple of days ago when I heard about this," in an interview with Reuters.
Now, he said, "in fact maybe it was mentioned at some point."
That contradicts with a statement from Don Jr, who said that his dad didn't know.
Secondly, it turns out it wasn't a meeting just with the Russian lawyer. NBC News reports that a former Soviet counter-intelligence officer was also in the room. He denies he is still involved with the Kremlin.
There is also a late-breaking report that a third person was in the room.
