President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Tuesday, July 17

"It should have been obvious – I thought it would be obvious – but I would like to clarify, just in case it wasn't. In a key sentence in my remarks, I said the word 'would' instead of 'wouldn't'. The sentence should have been: I don't see any reason why I wouldn't – or why it wouldn't be Russia. So just to repeat it, I said the word 'would' instead of 'wouldn't'. And the sentence should have been – and I thought it would be maybe a little bit unclear on the transcript or unclear on the actual video – the sentence should have been: I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russia. Sort of a double negative."[33]

  • Trump's new remarks are criticized by some Democratic senators,[37] who said that they did not believe that Trump mis-spoke[37][38][39] and that they thought Trump's "back-handed retraction"[37][40] was "too late".[37][40]
President Trump's statement on the 17th of July.
Wednesday, July 18
  • When asked by a reporter before a Cabinet meeting whether he believes that the Russian government continues to make efforts to interfere in American elections, Trump replied, "no".[41][42] However, Sarah Huckabee Sanders (the White House Press Secretary) disputed that Trump was in fact answering the reporter's question when he said "no",[41][42] and Trump himself refused to clarify his intent to the press later in the day.[42]
  • The New York Times reports that Trump was briefed on January 6, 2017, regarding the Russian government's attempts to interfere in American elections.[43][44] Trump "sounded begrudgingly convinced", according to the Times's sources.[43][44]
  • Trump receives a public request from Russian prosecutors for permission to interrogate eleven American citizens, including former Amb. Michael McFaul, as part of an investigation into financial crimes that the Russian government alleges against American hedge-fund manager Bill Browder.[45][46] Trump did not immediately decline the request, with Sarah Huckabee Sanders saying that Trump is "gonna meet with his team" regarding the request.[46]
President Trump replies "no".

Saturday, July 21
Sunday, July 22
  • Trump tweets that Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. elections is "all a big hoax",[59] appearing to reverse his position yet again on whether the Russian government interfered (and continues to attempt to interfere) in U.S. elections.[60][61][62]
  • Trump tweets a threat to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani:[63][64]

    NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS![63][64]

    The threat was the culmination of a weekend of intense rhetorical exchange between the Trump administration and the Rouhani administration.[64] Trump's tweet was in response to Rouhani's message that war with Iran would be "the mother of all wars"; Rouhani also warned Trump to "not play with the lion's tail, because you will regret it eternally".[65] Rouhani's message was, in turn, in response to a scathing speech made by Mike Pompeo (the U.S. Secretary of State), which included an allegation that Rouhani owns a $95 billion hedge-fund;[66] Pompeo also stated that "to the [Iranian] regime, prosperity, security, and freedom for the Iranian people are acceptable casualties in the march to fulfill the Revolution",[66] and that "the level of corruption and wealth among regime leaders shows that Iran is run by something that resembles the mafia more than a government".[66]

Week 78[edit]

Tuesday, July 24
  • At a speech to the annual convention of a veterans' organization (Veterans of Foreign Wars) in Kansas City, Trump says that "what you're seeing and what you're reading [in the media] is not what's happening".[71][72][73] Some observers describe this quote as "Orwellian".[71][72][73]
  • The September 2016 tape, the existence of which was revealed on July 20, is published by CNN on its 9 p.m. show, Cuomo Prime Time.[74] The three-minute recording proves that Trump and his then-lawyer, Michael Cohen, did discuss the $150,000 payment to American Media, Inc., as claimed on July 20.[74][75] Moreover, Trump and Cohen can be heard discussing whether to make the payment in cash;[74][75] on the recording, Trump appears to suggest a cash payment, and Cohen appears to dismiss the suggestion.[74][75] According to The New York Times, the salient portion of the "sometimes muddled"[75] recording reads as follows:[75]

Mr. Cohen is heard telling Mr. Trump that he will need to set up a company to arrange the payments.
Mr. Trump then asked, "What financing?"
"We'll have to pay," Mr. Cohen said.
Mr. Trump then appears to say, "Pay with cash."
Mr. Cohen then says, "No, no."
The word "check" is uttered, but it is not clear by whom, and the audio is then cut off.[75]

However, Trump's legal team disputes this.[74][75]

  • The New York Times reports that the White House Counsel, Don McGahn, has testified for nearly thirty hours in three voluntary interviews with investigators working on the Special Counsel investigation.[166] According to the report, Trump and his lawyers allowed McGahn to testify, and did not ask for a de-briefing of the content of his testimony,[166] which included the manner in which FBI Director James Comey was dismissed, as well as other personnel-related matters, including Trump's "obsession with putting a loyalist in charge of the [Special Counsel] inquiry".[166] In response to the report, Trump tweets that "disgraced and discredited Bob Mueller and his whole group of Angry Democrat Thugs spent over 30 hours with the White House Counsel [sic], only with my approval, for purposes of transparency".[167][168][169]
Sunday, August 19
  • In an interview on Meet the Press, a news program on NBC hosted by Chuck Todd, Trump's legal adviser Rudy Giuliani says that "truth isn't truth".[170][171] Giuliani later clarified that he was "referring to the situation where two people make precisely contradictory statements, the classic 'he said, she said' puzzle".[172] Many observers, noting that this is the latest in a sequence of unusual statements, including Kellyanne Conway's "alternative facts", Trump's "fake news", and Trump's recent claim that "what you're seeing and what you're reading is not what's happening", draw comparisons to George Orwell's dystopian novel, 1984.[173][174]

(which owns the National Enquirer magazine), who was, along with Trump, named by Michael Cohen in his guilty plea as an un-indicted co-conspirator in campaign finance violations committed in the payments to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, is granted immunity by federal prosecutors in exchange for his testimony.[194][195] A report by the Associated Press indicates that, during the 2016 election, the National Enquirer hid stories to which it had gained exclusive rights, but which were damaging to Trump, in a safe, as a form of 'friendly blackmail'; a National Enquirer reporter told the Associated Press, "It's, 'I did this for you', now what can you do for me ... they [the National Enquirer] always got something in return".[196]
