Date Originated: March of 2017

Donald Trump repeatedly claimed that he never met with any Russian officials during the 2016 Presidential campaign, but he in fact did. Trump met with the Russian Ambassador to the United States minutes before a foreign policy speech on April 27, 2016. The White House released a statement claiming that the meeting was “brief and non-substantive,” but did not address Trump's claims that he never met with any Russian official during the campaign.
