WASHINGTON (Sinclair Broadcast Group) - President Trump took to Twitter early Sunday morning to defend his son, Donald Trump Jr. The tweets are regarding Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer during the time of the 2016 presidential election.

The Senate Intelligence Committee Friday requested documents from Donald Trump Jr.

The president's son said that he will work with the committee. Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner is also expected to testify but in a closed session.

Trump's former campaign adviser Michael Caputo said during an interview with CNN, he "heard nothing of the kind" regarding Russia while working on the campaign.

The president thanked Caputo for what he said during the interview.

Trump then placed blame on "fake news" for "distorting democracy," in response to the coverage his son has received recently in the news media.
