Sarah Sanders confirmed Tuesday that President Trump weighed in on Donald Trump Jr.'s statement about his meeting with a Russian attorney. That contradicts Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow, who twice said Trump played no role in the statement.

"There's no inaccuracy in the statement... he certainly didn't dictate, but...he weighed in, offered suggestions, like any father would do," said Sanders.
