And Trump once again defended the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting, in which his son met with a Kremlin-connected lawyer saying it was "totally legal", and that he had not known about it. "I did not know about it!" the President tweeted.
Manafort is now on trial for unrelated bank and tax fraud charges as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, and Sekulow said that to his knowledge, Trump Jr.is not the target of a federal probe stemming from the meeting.
That new admission, however, is completely at odds with the statement Trump crafted for use in the July 2017 news story that first reported the Trump Tower meeting. Mueller is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible coordination with Trump campaign aides.
Both President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin have said Russia did not interfere in the U.S. election.

However, he subsequently admitted he had agreed to the meeting after being told he would be offered information that would prove detrimental to Mrs Clinton.
"When you look at a meeting that took place a year before - now two years ago - the question is, what law, statute, rule or regulation's been violated, and nobody's pointed to one", Sekulow added.
When news of the meeting first surfaced previous year, Trump Jr said in a statement that he and Veselnitskaya had mostly discussed a suspended programme for Americans to adopt Russian children., although he has since admitted that he knew he would be offered "dirt" on Clinton.

One of Mr Trump's lawyers, Jay Sekulow, said on Sunday that the meeting had nor broken any laws.
The first is that Trump appears to have broken some new ground here when it comes to admitting the true objective of the Trump Tower meeting with a Kremlin-aligned lawyer - and even further contradicted the initial statement he helped draft about it. The meeting - set up by an intermediary Rob Goldstone, a music publicist - was also attended by Trump's then-campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, and Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who now serves as a White House senior adviser. Betraying no surprise or misgivings about the offer from a hostile foreign power, Trump Jr. replied: "If it's what you say I love it especially later in the summer".
Ex-Trump attorney Michael Cohen has since reportedly claimed that President Trump knew in advance of that meeting, amid an ongoing spat in which Cohen has released a secret audio recording of his conversations with Trump. "So I think it's very important to point out that in a situation like this, you have - over time, facts develop", Sekulow said.
In another, he expressed frustration with both the media and Mueller's probe.
