“I don’t know. I never spoke to my father about it,” Trump Jr. explained after being peppered with questions regarding his father’s involvement in the now infamous 2016 Trump Tower meeting.
Staff on the committee asked Trump Jr., “To the best of your knowledge, did the President provide any edits to the statement or other input?”
“He may have commented through Hope Hicks,” Trump Jr. replied, pointing to the former White House communications aide.
Trump Jr. went on to say that he thinks that several of his comments, given through Hicks, were incorporated into his statement.
However, he asserted that he never spoke to his father “because I didn’t want to bring him into some thing that he had nothing to do with.”
And when pressed on why his statements are inconsistent, Trump Jr. fired back, claiming they were “all very consistent with each other.”
“The initial statement was discussing exactly what the meeting was about. It ended up being about that,” Trump explained.
“It did not talk about what got them into the door and I didn’t expand on it because I didn’t think it was relevant to discuss what the meeting was not actually about even if that’s what the email was. As more questions were asked and more information was requested we released more information and went into greater detail,” he added.
