President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence made a last-minute appearance in a White House meeting that included a leading Republican who last summer accused Trump of accepting money from Russia.
It was reported Wednesday that House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., told some of his colleagues last summer he was convinced Russian President Vladimir Putin was paying Trump and Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif.
Trump's director of social media posted an image of Thursday's meeting on his Twitter account:
The meeting was in regards to senior adviser to the president Jared Kushner's innovation initiative, according to The Hill.
McCarthy acknowledged he made the remark last summer but called it a joke.
