would have done things a little differently. for me, it was opposition research, it had something, i wanted to hear it out. >> did you ever meet with any other person from russia that you know? >> i don't know. i've probably met with other people from russia but not in the context of a formalized meeting or anything like that. because why would i? >> reporter: when asked in march by the "new york times" whether he'd ever had campaign han related meetings with russian, donald trump jr. said none that were set up and certainly none that i was representing the campaign in any way, shape or form. and just a month after the meeting with the russian lawyer, don jr. angrily dismissed suggestions the trump campaign had anything to do with russia. >> it's disgusting. it's so phony. >> reporter: also entangled in all of this, donald trump's s n son-in-law jared kushner, who aattendanted the meeting with
the russian lawyer after don jr. forwarded him the e-mail chain with the subject line russia, clinton, private and confidence. what do you say to democrats who say that jared kushner's security clearance should be revehicled. >> once again, we don't discuss security clearance, but i think democrats are trying to play political games, and i think it's ridiculous. rar is there any concern over the top adviser -- >> no. >> reporter: aides describe him as angry and frustrated. but these images emerged. the president meeting with faith leaders in the oval office, laying their hands on him in prayer. the president also talked about his meeting with vladimir putin in germany and said that the first 20 to 25 meinutes of the meeting were on russian meddling in the election. i said, did you do it? he said no, absolutely not.
