Trump Jr.'s Russia Meeting Dogs President in Paris

Trump Jr.'s Russia Meeting Dogs President in Paris

Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, told CNN Thursday that he plans to send a letter to Donald Trump Jr today asking him to testify before the committee.

"We have a very good relationship", Trump said, adding that, however, he and Macron have a strong disagreement over the Paris climate deal. On Wednesday, Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.), Rep. Brendan Boyle (D-Pa.), and Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.) introduced the No Cyber Cooperation With Russia Act to ensure that the US doesn't hand over any cybersecurity intelligence on attacks or vulnerabilities to Moscow.

However, the emails Donald Trump Jr received pitched her as one. The president later asked that some of his remarks during the conversation be put on the record.

Meanwhile, federal investigators are reviewing Kushner's personal finances and Trump's abrupt firing of FBI director James Comey over the "Russia thing", which Kushner reportedly supported.

Members of the Justice Department and both the House and Senate Intelligence Committees believe the Trump campaign may have steered Russian cyber operatives to target voters in key states and voting precincts, McClatchy reported Wednesday.

Mr Trump Jr said it later became apparent that Ms Veselnitskaya wanted to discuss a suspended programme for Americans to adopt Russian children.

Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee, has also said he'd like to hear from Trump Jr. and said the panel has requested documents from him.

China says upholds United Nations sanctions as North Korea trade rises
Leaders of the Group of 20 major economies agreed last week that North Korea poses a global threat, a top adviser to U.S. President Donald Trump said Thursday, although their joint declaration made no mention of the communist state.

But Veselnitskaya instead gave up information not about Clinton, Trump Jr.

Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya originally entered the country in October 2015 on a grant of immigration parole, a rare exemption which allowed her to enter the country without a visa and remain legally until early January 2016, according to court records obtained by The Hill.

It also led Trump Jr.to release an email chain about the planning of that meeting-which is now being cited as the most serious evidence yet of alleged collusion between the Trump presidential campaign and Russian Federation. He was told the Russian government had information that could "incriminate" Clinton and her dealings with Russia. However, After learning of the details about Trump Jr.'s infamous meeting, Rich began to change his mind.

"It's a demanding job that requires a keen understanding of the law, sound management skills, calm under significant pressure and a level head", Grassley said.

Sekulow said the president was not being investigated by Mueller.

Trump sidestepped a question about applying new sanctions on Russia and offered his endorsement of existing sanctions on Putin, Russian banks, and the oligarchs. The White House says the president is opposed to ceding executive authority over foreign policy to Congress.

Democrats accused Republicans of stalling because of Trump administration concern about a provision setting up a process for Congress to approve any effort by the president to ease sanctions on Russian Federation. "I think it's been lackadaisical enforcement, and he would be an example of that lackadaisical enforcement".
