Kremlin says Trump signing sanctions 'doesn't change anything'

President Donald Trump has signed the bill passed by Congress to put more sanctions on Russian Federation, according to a White House official.

Trump reportedly decided that his son should tell the media that the issue of Russian adoption was discussed at the meeting, rather than any campaign issues.

In a statement last week, Russia's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Congress' almost unanimous approval of the sanctions bill indicates that "in certain circles" of United States politics "Russophobia and the course of open confrontation with our country have become entrenched".

It later emerged that during that fateful meeting in June a year ago, Mr Trump Jr, Mr Trump's son-in-law, Mr Jared Kushner, and then campaign manager Paul Manafort met a Russian government attorney who an intermediary claimed had incriminating information about Mr Trump's rival, Ms Hillary Clinton.

In a statement President Trump said he supports measures to deter "bad behavior" from Pyongyang and Tehran.

"Now someone can claim he is the one who attempted to mislead", one presidential adviser said on condition of anonymity.

Two White House sources said Trump had signed the bill behind closed doors and away from the cameras - in signing it, he avoided the humiliating prospect of Congress overriding his veto. "Nor was the president", he said.

In mid-July, Trump's personal attorney Jay Sekulow told NBC and ABC in separate interviews that Trump had any involvement with crafting the initial statement.

President Trump personally drafted his son's misleading statement in response to a report that Eric Trump Jr. met with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign, the Washington Post reveals. "But it seems a bit unusual, the president of the United States comes in and drafts this statement that is just factually wrong".

Three weeks ago, one of President Donald Trump's personal lawyers vigorously denied that the commander in chief had anything to do with.

Mr Trump Jr then posted the emails online.

A July 14 CNN report details the legal jeopardy Trump and other White House aides who were involved in trying to do damage control for Trump Jr. may have put themselves in.

"I think it was long overdue", said Sen.
