Jay Sekulow, a member of the president’s legal team, said in an interview with ABC’s This Week on Sunday that the Secret Service would have vetted a meeting between Donald Jr. and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, suggesting this meant there was nothing untoward about the meeting. However, the Secret Service quashed Sekulow’s claim as they said Donald Jr. was not receiving protection from them at the time of the meeting. "Donald Trump, Jr. was not a protectee of the USSS in June, 2016. Thus we would not have screened anyone he was meeting with at that time," a statement from the Secret Service seen by Reuters said.
