Trump Jr. untroubled by meeting Russian

On Wednesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee released almost 2,000 pages of interviews regarding Donald Trump Jr's clandestine meeting with a Russian lawyer in June of 2016. That's according to transcripts released Wednesday.

After a thorough review, Senate Intel has found no evidence to dispute the intelligence community's conclusion that Russian Federation, on orders from Putin, carried out an unprecedented election interference effort to help the Trump campaign and hurt the Clinton campaign in 2016.

"There is no doubt that Russian Federation undertook an unprecedented effort to interfere with our 2016 election", Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr, a North Carolina Republican, said in a statement.

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr said in a statement Wednesday that his staff has spent 14 months "reviewing the sources, tradecraft, and analytic work, and we see no reason to dispute the conclusions".

Their backing of intelligence agencies' findings contrasted with the assertion weeks earlier by House of Representatives Republicans that Russian Federation had not sought to boost then-Republican candidate Trump, who went on to win the election. Mark Warner, the committee's vice chairman, said. Indeed, it appears that her pitch about Russian adoptions and overturning U.S. sanctions went nowhere because Trump's family members and campaign staff were expecting something much more actionable about Clinton.

Mr Goldstone told the Senate committee that on the day of the pageant, around 4pm, a call came in to Mr Aras Agalarov from Mr Dmitry Peskov, Mr Putin's top spokesman.

Kaveladze said he was troubled by the "morality and ethics of the situation", more than potential legal issues.

Trump Jr was keen to find material that could be used to tarnish his father's political rival Clinton. "I love it especially later in the summer", Trump Jr. said in response to Goldstone's overture in an email exchange.

Politico reported in March that the Federal Election Commission (FEC) has launched an investigation into whether Russian Federation gave illegal contributions to the NRA that were meant to support the Trump campaign during the election.

Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee released a document on Wednesday that claims they have evidence suggesting Russian Federation may have used the National Rifle Association (NRA) to "secretly fund" President Donald Trump's presidential campaign.

The documents support Trump, Jr.,'s claim that the Russians didn't actually deliver any actionable dirt on Clinton or her campaign.

Trump Jr. also met behind closed doors with the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Trump Jr. thanked the members of the committee for "their courtesy and professionalism". "I never spoke with my father about it".

There are other questions too, that the transcripts raise but don't answer, including a discrepancy about how long Kushner was at the meeting as well as followup between the meeting participants -- they had denied any followup but the transcripts are the latest piece of evidence to contradict that assertion. To put it another way, the documents strongly suggest that the Trumps-or at least Trump, Jr. -were nearly certainly willing to collude with the Russians if they really had the goods on Clinton.

He said he was not aware whether anyone else on the campaign had contact with WikiLeaks.

According to Tip, his arrest is ultimately a result of calling out his gated community's security guard for sleeping on the job. According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, T.I. did not have his key and argued with a guard, who refused to let him in.

The employee told the committee that Agalarov "secretly requested" the meeting through a Russian government official.

Trump Jr for his part described the meeting as a waste of time. "When asked if he knew if Trump had provided any "edits" or "input" to the statement, he said "(h) e may have commented through Hope Hicks".

New documents released by US Senate offer new window into 2016 meeting with Russians close to the Kremlin.

President Trump has repeatedly insisted that his campaign did not collude with Russian efforts to interfere in the election, including through the hacking and distribution of Democratic emails.

And people who attended the meeting generally agreed that it didn't include the transmission of damaging information.

The congressional panel released Kaveladze's transcript from the November 2017 interview on Wednesday.

He said Paul Manafort didn't look up from his phone and Jared Kushner asked aloud why they were there "listening to that Magnitsky Act story".

Their statements affirmed the U.S. intelligence community's assessment, and departed from the findings of the House Intelligence Committee last month, which implied that Moscow's goal was to sow discord in the United States and not necessarily to help Trump.

During the private meeting, the Committee members heard testimony from the former Director of national intelligence James Clapper, former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of the NSA Mike Rogers.

Donald Trump Jr., opening a sketchy, possibly illegal meeting with "So I believe you have some information for us", took all his cues on how to conduct evil from bad movies, which makes sense given that he comes from the tackiest family in America.

Transcripts released Wednesday detail an interview the president's eldest son gave to the Senate Judiciary Committee past year.

Akhmetshin recalled, "So Mr. Trump, Jr., said, 'So can you show us how does this money go to Hillary?' Like specifically, do you have paperwork?"

Top campaign officials made clear their frustration that more damaging information was not produced at the June 9 meeting in Trump Tower.

Trump Jr. deflected multiple questions during the interview, including whether he discussed the Russian Federation probe with his father.
