Kimmel went on to highlight a few of the president's almost 50 tweets from over the weekend, including one where he admitted that his son, Don Jr., met with Russians to get "dirt" on Hillary Clinton. At various times, they defended the meeting by claiming it was exclusively about global adoption, said that they were doing standard opposition research, and even argued that they didn't get anything out of it so how can it be illegal? I did not know about it!'
In June 2016, Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and campaign chairman Paul Manafort met with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.
The president tweeted on Sunday an admission to his campaign colluding with Russians to obtain damaging material on Clinton, though he continued to deny personal knowledge of the meeting.
The younger Trump said "I love it" when offered the "dirt" on Mrs Clinton.
Mr Trump's tweet about the meeting was one in a thread in which he reiterated criticism of Mr Mueller, calling his probe "the most one-sided witch hunt in the history of our country" peppered with "lies and corruption".
ABC's George Stephanopoulos pressed Sekulow on the attorney's previous assertions that the president had nothing to do with writing a statement to The New York Times, seeking to explain the Trump Tower meeting on behalf of his son.
His comments come after the president dismissed news reports Sunday that he's anxious about legal trouble for his son related to the special counsel's investigation, and renewed his attacks on the media.
Ingraham was questioning Trump Jr on the contradictory reports regarding his controversial Trump Tower meeting when the line dropped out.

That blaze has killed two firefighters and five civilians and destroyed more than 1,000 homes. Of the 89,633 acres burned, firefighters have contained about 38%, according to authorities.
Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen has claimed Trump knew about the meeting ahead of time.
As Law&Crime reported before, recent reporting about the focuses of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation indicate that Trump would be wise to be more guarded about his tweets. Perhaps the Trumps, as they claim, didn't take any help from the Kremlin to win the 2016 election - but as even the president now acknowledges, they definitely wanted it.
The meeting between Donald Jr and Ms Veselnitskaya is being looked at as part of this probe. A few days later, Trump Jr., tweeted an image from an email chain he said disclosed his interest in getting incriminating information on Clinton from the "Russian government lawyer".

"I had bad information at that time and made a mistake in my statement", Sekulow said.
He called the "Fake" media "very risky and sick". And at a trio of rallies, he escalated his already vitriolic rhetoric toward the media, savaging the press for unflattering coverage and, he feels, bias.
Mr. Sekulow also said if Mr. Mueller were to subpoena Mr. Trump, the question over whether a sitting president could be subpoenaed by a special counsel would likely go before the Supreme Court since the question has never been tested in the courts.
