Senate intel panel asks Trump Jr. for documents

Jared Kushner to Speak to Capitol Hill Interns Next Week

"All I can say is Trump Jr. met him for the first time and learned his name minutes before the meeting and he was introduced as a friend".

An ex-Soviet counter intelligence officer was also in the now infamous June 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, and a woman described in the emails the president's son released as a Russian government attorney. In messages from Goldstone to Trump Jr., Veselnitskaya was characterized as a "Russian government attorney", though she has denied connections to the Kremlin.

Krauthammer, a Fox News contributor, wrote that he has always been a skeptic of charges of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, but that he was "open to empirical evidence".

Akhmetshin, who lobbied in Washington to overturn the Magnitsky sanctions, is a dual citizen who was born in Russian Federation and served in the Soviet military.

He asked reporters on Air Force One what more he could have done.

The person Futerfas spoke to told the lawyer that he was not working for the Russian government, according to NBC.

The lawyer for Donald Trump Jr. has not responded.




"We still have no reason to believe that the objective of the meeting was to talk about Hillary Clinton or the United States election", Balber said.

Four White House officials and two outside advisers say Kushner wants the White House to more aggressively push out surrogates and talking points to change the narrative around the latest twist in the Russian Federation scandal.

The recent revelation of Donald Trump Jr.'s 2016 meeting with a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer is causing headaches for the Trump administration.

The meeting, which Donald Trump Jr.'s emails showed was for the explicit objective of obtaining dirt on Hillary Clinton from the Russian government, was obviously "irrelevant information by irrelevant people", according to Kingston.

Additionally, it is interesting to note that Jared Kushner recently revised his list of foreign agents he had met, adding over 100 individuals, and this individual was not included.

"My son is a wonderful young man".

Asked about the meeting, Mr Trump said "politics is not the nicest business in the world" and it is standard for candidates to welcome negative information about an opponent. The five-member commission's three Republicans said they could not support moving forward because not all the facts were available.
