The panel on Monday's episode of MSNBC's "Morning Joe" discussed the appearance of President Donald Trump's attorney, Jay Sekulow, on a number of Sunday shows where he discussed, in part, the news that the president's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., had met with a Kremlin-connected lawyer in attempts to gain disparaging information on Hillary Clinton.

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough took a shot at Fox News rival Sean Hannity on Monday, calling his nightly program "state-run television" during a segment about the latest developments in the investigation into links between the Donald Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

"[The White House was] lying to the New York Times, lying to the American people, saying this meeting was just about adoption", Mr. Scarborough said, The Washington Free Beacon reported.

A report Friday afternoon revealed two more people attended than were previously disclosed. "Then the next day lying about the people that were in it, then going on a TV show that basically is state-run television and being asked at the end of that TV show, 'Is there anything else that we don't know about?' And Don Jr. saying, 'That's it'".

The firm owned 2,080 shares of the industrial products company's stock after buying an additional 100 shares during the period. LS Investment Advisors LLC's holdings in Caterpillar were worth $2,510,000 as of its most recent filing with the SEC.

Trump Jr. appeared on Hannity's show hours after he published email messages showing he was aware and willing to receive research as part of a Russian state effort to help his father win.

The comment from Scarborough came as he was addressing what he calls lies coming from the Trump administration and family.

Hannity responded in a series of tweets mocking Scarborough for "singing bad songs on Colbert", being "boring low rated establishment TV" and criticizing Trump in order "to please D.C. NYC elites & Mika" (Brzezinski, who is Scarborough's co-host and fiancée).
