'Wild and overblown': Lavrov blasts media hype over Trump Jr. meeting with Russian lawyer

'Wild and overblown': Lavrov blasts media hype over Trump Jr. meeting with Russian lawyer | 12 July 2017 | Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov says he was astonished to learn the US president’s son has been slammed for talking to a Russian lawyer. The minister has lampooned the accusations, saying they were "wild" and making a mountain out of a molehill. "I was amazed to find out that Trump's son is accused of talking to her [Natalia Veselnitskaya]. For me it's basically wild, because when a person talks to a lawyer, what is the threat to anyone?" the top Russian diplomat said. "It is amazing how serious people are making an elephant out of a fly," the minister added while speaking at a news conference with his Belgian counterpart, Didier Deynders, on Wednesday.
