A lawyer for Hicks issued a denial to the newspaper.

“She never said that. And the idea that Hope Hicks ever suggested that emails or other documents would be concealed or destroyed is completely false,” Robert Trout told the Times in a statement.

“If it’s what you say I love it especially later in the summer,” Trump Jr. wrote.

The Trump administration initially said the meeting was set up to discuss a Russian adoption policy.

Mueller is leading a probe into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. His investigation has thus far led to two plea agreements and two indictments.

He has recently focused on how the Trump campaign sought to portray the Trump Tower meeting, The New York Times reported.

Mueller is reportedly seeking an interview with President Trump, who recently said he would be willing to sit for an interview under oath.

Trump’s lawyer then clarified that details of any interview are still being arranged.
