Ethics Lawyer For President Bush: Russian Lawyer Meeting ‘Was Illegal’


INTENDED TO COLLUDE WITH RUSSIA ERROL BARNETT, CBS NEWS NEW JERSEY

THE PRESIDENT'S ATTORNEY WAS ON SUNDAY MORNING TALK SHOWS DEFENDING DONALD TRUMP JR'S MEETINGS SAYING THAT IT WAS NOT ILLEGAL AND PRESIDENT TRUMP HAD NO KNOWLEDGE OF THE MEETING ONE OF THE MOST OFTEN QUOTED EXPERTS ON PRESIDENTIAL ACTIONS IN THE COUNTRY WAS THE CHIEF ETHICS LAWYER FOR GEORGE W BUSH AND AS THE VICE-CHAIRMAN FOR THE CITIZENS OF RESPONSIBILITY AND ETHICS IN WASHINGTON IS PART OF THE LAWSUIT AGAINST THE PRESIDENT ARGUING PRESIDENT TRUMP IS IN VIOLATION OF THE CONSTITUTION THE PROFESSOR IS HERE WITH US RIGHT NOW, THANK YOU FOR COMING IN

OKAY, THE PRESIDENT'S ATTORNEY ON ALL THE TALK SHOWS SAYING THAT DONALD TRUMP JR'S MEETING WAS NOT ILLEGAL WHAT IS YOUR OPINION? WHAT THIS IS ABOUT IS THAT THESE PEOPLE WILL DO ANYTHING IN ORDER TO WIN THAT IS A CLEAR MESSAGE THEY WOULD DO ANYTHING TO WIN WHEN YOU HAVE A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT KNOWN FOR CONDUCTING ESPIONAGE IN THE UNITED STATES A FOREIGN ADVERSARY APPROACHING A POLITICAL CAMPAIGN IN AMERICA AND THEY SAY WE HAVE DIRT LET'S SET UP A MEETING THERE WAS ONLY WANTING TO DO, CALL THE FBI

DO YOU THINK THE MEETING WAS ILLEGAL OR UNETHICAL? I THINK IT WAS ILLEGAL WE HAVE A RANGE OF STATUTES TO DEAL WITH THIS CONDUCT, CAMPAIGN FINANCE LAWS PROHIBITING FOREIGN NATIONALS AND FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS FROM ASSISTING WITH POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS WE HAVE COMPUTER HACKING LAWS AND IT IS CLEAR THE RUSSIANS HAVE BEEN ENGAGED IN COMPUTER HACKING IN OUR COUNTRY FOR A LONG TIME WE DON'T KNOW THAT SUBJECT CAME UP BUT IT IS LIKELY THAT IT DID WE HAVE A LOT OF LAWS TO DEAL WITH

A4 GOVERNMENT IS TRYING TO INTERFERE THERE WAS ONLY ONE APPROPRIATE RESPONSE, GO TO THE FBI AND TELL THEM BECAUSE AT THE END OF THE DAY DONALD TRUMP IS AN AMERICAN, HILLARY CLINTON IS AN AMERICAN IT IS TO BE MADE WITHOUT INTERFERENCE YOU WERE ONE OF THE COUNCILS TO GEORGE W BUSH SO YOU HAVE BEEN IN THE WHITE HOUSE, LET ME ASK YOU, IN THIS MEETING WASN'T THERE SOMETHING OF VALUE THAT HAD TO BE EXCHANGED IN ORDER FOR THIS TO BE AN ILLEGAL ACT? AND WHAT DONALD TRUMP JR HAS SAID IS THERE IS NO INFORMATION

THAT IS WHAT THEY ARE SAYING IF THERE WAS NOT GOING TO BE ANY INFORMATION THEN WHY DID THE TOP THREE PEOPLE IN THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN GO TO THIS MEETING WITH A RUSSIAN AGENT? NOT ONLY THE RUSSIAN LAWYER WAS THERE BUT A RUSSIAN LOBBYIST WHO HAD BEEN WORKING ON THE SANCTIONS ISSUE TRYING TO GET THE SANCTIONS LIFTED IT APPEARS THERE WAS A QUID PRO QUO AT LEAST IMPLICIT OF WHAT THE RUSSIANS WANTED WAS THE SANCTIONS LIFTED IF DONALD TRUMP WON AND IN RETURN THEY WOULD HELP DONALD TRUMP WIN BY GIVING THE DIRT DONALD TRUMP JR IS NOT PART OF THE ADMINISTRATION

HE IS RUNNING THE FAMILY COMPANY, JARED KUSHNER IS PART OF THE ADMINISTRATION A SENIOR AIDE TO THE PRESIDENT IS HE IN TROUBLE BECAUSE IT APPEARS HE DID NOT DISCLOSE THIS MEETING OR SEVERAL OTHER MEETINGS AS HE HAD TO REVISE HIS DISCLOSURE THAT COULD VERY WELL BE A PROBLEM ONE OF THE WAYS WE DEAL WITH THIS CONDUCT WHEN PEOPLE MEET WITH FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS WHEN THEY SHOULDN'T BE IS THROUGH THE STATUTES THAT PROHIBIT FALSE STATEMENTS TO THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT FALSE STATEMENTS CAN BE PROSECUTED

IF HE FEELS OUT FORMS SAYING HE HAD NO MEETINGS AND HE DID THAT IS A CRIMINAL ACT IN ITSELF WE HAVE A RANGE OF DIFFERENT PEOPLE A LOT OF PEOPLE IN THE ADMINISTRATION WHO HAVE BEEN LYING ABOUT CONTACTS WITH THE RUSSIANS LET ME ASK YOU, THE LAWSUIT CLAIMING PRESIDENT TRUMP IS IN VIOLATION ENRICHING HIMSELF FROM FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS, YOUR ORGANIZATION BROUGHT THE LAWSUIT DO YOU HAVE TO PROVE YOU HAVE BEEN INJURED YOUR ORGANIZATION HAS BEEN INJURED TO FILE THIS CLAIM? YES, THERE ARE SEVERAL AND WE ALSO HAVE LAWSUITS FROM CONGRESS AND THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF MARYLAND DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA ARE LAWSUIT ALLEGES THAT OUR GROUP WHICH FOCUSES ON THE CONFLICTS OF INTEREST IN GOVERNMENT HAS HAD TO SPEND TIME AND MONEY FOCUSING ON THE ADDITIONAL PROBLEMS BROUGHT UP THROUGH FOREIGN GOVERNMENT PAYMENTS TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES WHICH VIOLATES THE CONSTITUTION

THAT IS CRITICALLY IMPORTANT BECAUSE THE FOUNDERS UNDERSTOOD THAT FOREIGN POWERS WOULD SEEK TO MANIPULATE THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT THROUGH PAYMENTS MADE TO US GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AND THAT IS WHY THE PAYMENTS ARE PROHIBITED AND WE BELIEVE PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS TAKEN SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNTS OF MONEY FROM RUSSIA OR CHINA OR WHEREVER WE NEED TO FIND OUT WHERE THE MONEY IS COMING FROM IN THE TRUMP ORGANIZATION THAT WAY WE CAN MAKE SURE HE IS COMPLY WITH THE CONSTITUTION PROFESSOR, THANK YOU SO MUCH I KNOW PEOPLE MAGAZINE IS
