Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) on Saturday downplayed renewed scrutiny over whether President Trump knew in advance about his son's meeting with a Russian lawyer offering dirt on Hillary Clinton before the 2016 election, saying "nobody’s going to be surprised."
Issa was pressed by Fox News's Neil Cavuto during an interview on whether Trump could face legal consequences if proof emerges that he knew about the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting that was billed to Donald Trump Jr. as "part of Russia and its government's support" for Trump.
“If he’s proven to have not told the whole truth about the fact that campaigns look for dirt, and if someone offers it, you listen to them, nobody’s going to be surprised,” Issa told Cavuto. “There are some things in politics that you just take for granted.”Trump on Friday insisted in a tweet that he didn't know about the Trump Tower meeting while accusing Cohen of making up the claim to get out of legal scrutiny from federal prosecutors in New York.
