Amid the reports, Trump Jr. released copies of his emails about the meeting via Twitter, with a statement saying that his intention was to be transparent about what occurred a year ago during his father鈥檚 campaign. The emails 鈥 a series of messages between Trump Jr. and publicist Rob Goldstone 鈥 include references to a 鈥淩ussian government attorney鈥 and 鈥淩ussia and its government鈥檚 support for Mr. Trump.鈥

Trump Jr. then appeared on Fox News鈥 Hannity last night to further address the situation, saying, 鈥淚n retrospect, I probably would have done things a little differently.鈥

The president, for one, is behind his son 100 percent. After Trump Jr.鈥檚 appearance on Hannity, POTUS tweeted, 鈥淢y son Donald did a good job last night. He was open, transparent and innocent. This is the greatest Witch Hunt in political history. Sad!鈥 White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also shared a statement from the president with reporters on Tuesday: 鈥淢y son is a high-quality person and I applaud his transparency. Beyond that I鈥檓 going to have to refer everything beyond this matter to Don Jr.鈥檚 counsel and outside counsel.鈥
