When Trump, or a member of his administration, or his family claim that there is nothing else to the Russia meeting story, keep in mind that according to Trump’s own lawyers they still don’t know the names of everyone who attended the meeting.
In the midst of a wave of Russia scandal news, this little nugget dropped:
Spokesman for Trump's legal team tells me he still does not know all the names of the people in the Trump Tower meeting.

If the meeting was nothing, as Trump and his administration claim, why do they keep lying about it? A nothing meeting could be easily explained and dismissed by revealing everything and putting all of the details out there. Instead, Trump Jr. released his emails, left out people who were at the meeting, and has changed his story numerous times.
Trump’s lawyers don’t know who was at the meeting because the President, Trump Jr., and Kushner won’t tell them. Trump’s own lawyers don’t have all of the information which suggests that the President and his family are holding secrets back from the legal team. It is all hitting the fan for Trump on Russia, and with his lawyers being kept in the dark, there could be even more shoes yet to drop.
