MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson: Trump Gave a ‘Full-Throated’ Defense of His Son

‘President Trump now saying this on camera, very explicitly, that there was nothing wrong with that meeting, defending his son to about the full extent that he could’

EXCERPT:

JACKSON: "Full-throated defense of his son, Andrea. That is something that we started to see over the last 24 hours. Initially in those comments to Reuters, but President Trump now saying this on camera, very explicitly, that there was nothing wrong with that meeting, defending his son to about the full extent that he could, saying that he believes a lot of people would have taken than meeting. Let’s just be clear on this. Political operatives on both sides of the aisle have repeatedly said, yes, people do opposition research, people take meetings about oppo. What they don’t do is take meetings about oppo from foreign nationals. That is what makes this meeting different and even members of Congress will say highly alarming, as you have heard on Capitol Hill. That’s sort of one part of this puzzle."
