Trump Jr questioned in US Congress about Russian Federation

Donald Trump Jr.is headed to the Senate Judiciary Committee today where behind closed doors, far from the ears of the American public, he's going to testify about his involvement in the possible collusion with Russian Federation that occurred during the Donald Trump campaign.

He entered and exited the House Intelligence Committee hearing from a back door, avoiding the media, and nothing was immediately released about the discussions.

The California lawmaker said the details of such a discussion could reveal critical information, including efforts to "obstruct the investigation into the campaign's contact with the Russians or any other misrepresentations to the public about that meeting".

Representative Adam Schiff, the committee's top Democrat, said that Trump Jr. told the committee he couldn't speak about the conversations with his father because of "attorney-client privilege".

"We will be following up with his counsel", Schiff concluded.

"Today, I understand why it took place to begin with and why it ended so quickly with a feeling of mutual disappointment and time wasted", she wrote of the meeting, according to NBC.

Trump Jr. said because a lawyer was present during the meeting, their conversation was protected.

Jacobovitz noted this question of what Trump knew/when is also coming at a time when at least one of Trump's lawyers is shifting the president's defense from: He didn't to anything wrong to the more fanciful He can't be charged for doing anything wrong. The meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya has come under the microscope because Trump Jr. accepted the invitation from British publicist Rob Goldstone after being promised Veselnitskaya would provide incriminating information about Hillary Clinton.

Attorney-client privilege is "a legal privilege that works to keep communications between an attorney and his or her client secret", according to Cornell Law School.

Veselnitskaya denies ever having such information and wrote in the letter released this week that Trump Jr. misunderstood the objective of the meeting because of Goldstone's "roguish letters" setting it up. Trump Jr. said he did not recall the exchanges, CNN reported, citing several unnamed sources. "That's not the objective of attorney-client privilege".

No, he can't. It wasn't even his attorney, it was one of Trump's attorneys. Additionally, a conversation that includes a party and his attorney along with a third party that the attorney does not represent would generally not be considered privileged. If this is the case, then I believe that a strong argument can be made that the privilege would remain in place because the argument could be made that the two parties, and their respective attorneys, were working pursuant to a common defense strategy and discussing matters that should be considered legally privileged. "Who was he representing and what was the objective of this conversation?..." And that's now a matter of interest to special counsel Robert Mueller and Congress. Democrats reject Trump's privilege claim.
