David Sklansky, a professor of criminal law at Stanford Law School, said that if Trump, as reported by the Post, helped craft a misleading public statement about the meeting, he may have bolstered a potential obstruction of justice case against himself.
At the president's direction, the statement portrayed the meeting the younger Trump had with a Russian lawyer as being chiefly "about the adoption of Russian children", which was "not a campaign issue at the time", sources told the newspaper.
The president's son later released email correspondence that showed he took the meeting because he believed the lawyer had information from the Russian government that would compromise Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. The result, at Trump's personal direction, was a statement that claimed the meeting was about adoption, when in fact the stated goal of it was opposition research - supposedly from the Russian government - about Hillary Clinton.
The president's advisers were apparently concerned that Trump's personal involvement in dictating the false statement would expose him to allegations of a coverup and would likely have political and legal implications.

President Trump lawyer John Dowd said in a statement to NBC on the Post'sreport: "Fake news, incorrect and misinformed of no effect".
But in July, after the New York Times first broke that Trump may have played a part in the misleading statement, Sekulow made the rounds on TV to flatly deny his client participated.
The report caught the attention of at least one lawmaker who serves on two of the committees now conducting parallel investigations into Russian interference.
One of Trump's lawyers, Jay Sekulow gave a one sentence reply to the Post's requests for comments on the story. The New York Times first disclosed details of the meeting that took place in July 2016, and also included Jared Kushner, and then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. Similarly, Trump Jr.'s lawyer Alan Futerfas said, "I have no evidence to support that theory" regarding Trump dictating the statement. Why risk being dragged into this morass by not only dictating a statement but doing so on Air Force One? While they were debating those questions, the one person to whom no one could say no told them how it was going to be: They were going to lie. After several high-profile figures have resigned due to the possibility of #Russian involvement including former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, James Comey, quitting after Trump asked him not to pursue the case whilst suggesting he could lose his position if he were to continue with the probe. But "it could be relevant in determining whether something else the president did, like firing (former FBI Director James) Comey, was done corruptly".
