Ex-Soviet agent at meeting between Trump Jr., Russian lawyer

Ex-Soviet agent at meeting between Trump Jr., Russian lawyer

The two attended the meeting past year with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, along with Trump adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner. President Trump went on to say that not only was the meeting "pretty standard" in politics, "zero happened".

In a series of emails, Trump Jr. was told the lawyer had "high-level and sensitive" information that was "part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump".

"My motive for bringing him to the committee is because of other involvements with whether or not the Foreign Agent Registration Act has been adequately enforced by this administration and by the Obama administration because I think it's been lackadaisical enforcement and he would be an example of that lackadaisical enforcement", Grassley said.

Appearing on Special Report Thursday night, Krauthammer said that, in his view, Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer, while not criminal, does indeed meet the definition of collusion.

The revelation of the meeting would be the most tangible evidence yet of a connection between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation, a subject that has also prompted an investigation by a federal special counsel. Thursday requesting that he testify before the committee, Chairman Chuck Grassley told CNN.




President Donald Trump announced his nominee for Federal Bureau of Investigation director in a post on Twitter June 7. "He told me specifically he was not working for the Russian government, and in fact laughed when I asked him that question".

But in the wake of the Donald Trump Jr.

Putin had said it seemed to him that Trump had "agreed" but added "it's better to ask him about his attitude". The powerful committee chairman says he is sending the President's eldest son the request in a letter. "I'm one of the lawyers", Sekulow told ABC's "Good Morning America". "There was zero coordination" between his campaign and Russian Federation", he told Reuters, adding: "It's the dumbest thing I've ever heard".

Futerfas told NBC that, "for the goal of security or otherwise, the names were reviewed" but said Trump Jr. knew nothing about the man's background at the time of the meeting.
