As reporters pressed Sarah Sanders on Trump talking to Putin, she gave a one sentence reply where one can almost feel the White House panic.
Sanders told reporters, “As is typical at multilateral events, President Trump and the First Lady had a number of informal conversations with world leaders at the dinner last night, including President Putin.”

The White House keeps changing their language on meeting with Putin because they are absolutely terrified of Robert Mueller. It seems that the Trump administration finally understands that Mueller will find out if they try to do anything on the record so they have taken the approach that Trump and Putin just bumped into each other at dinner and chatted along with other dinner guests.
Mueller is not going to be fooled
Trump and Putin may not have a formal meeting or a pull aside, but if there is anything that relates to his investigation said between Trump and Putin, Mueller will find out, and Mueller isn’t after the details, the Democrats who are taking over key House committees will be.
Trump and Putin have nowhere left to hide. Robert Mueller is coming for Trump, and the game of pretending not to meet with Putin isn’t fooling anyone.
The White House is panicking and making stupid mistakes that are getting them caught.
