US President Donald Trump allegedly personally dictated a statement that was later issued by his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., in which the president's son claims he had met with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya to discuss adoption, US media reported.

The statement said that Trump Jr. and other top members of the Trump campaign primarily discussed a Russian adoption program.

Trump himself brought up the Russian Federation investigation as a reason for firing Comey, and the president has recently criticized Attorney General Jeff Sessions-who was a campaign surrogate-for recusing himself from matters related to Russian Federation.

Trump Jr. initially claimed in his July 8 statement that the June 9, 2016 meeting was about the adoption of Russian children by USA citizens.
"Like when you guys put somebody in the vehicle and you're protecting their head, you know, the way you put their hand over, like, [at that point Mr Trump gestures at his head], don't hit their head and they've just killed somebody, don't hit their head, I said, 'You can take the hand away, okay?'"
