Russian-American lobbyist was at Trump Jr.'s meeting with Russian lawyer

Russian-American lobbyist was at Trump Jr.'s meeting with Russian lawyer

The law authorizes the United States president to deny visas to, and freeze the assets of, Russians believed to have been complicit in Magnitsky's death.

Interesting that Trump Jr would have forgotten the presence of a translator, which would only have been necessary if significant portions of the meeting were conducted in Russian - a detail that one would think might've stood out.

CBS News has learned President Donald Trump was briefed about the meeting three days before it was disclosed in The New York Times, though it seems he was not aware there were more people in the room than initially reported.

She suggested, according to Akhmetshin, that if the information was revealed to the public, it would help the Trump campaign and expose the DNC as corrupt. At the meet, the attorney said she had incriminating information about Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

Akhmetshin, who became an American citizen in 2009 and still has citizenship in Russian Federation, said he and Veselnitskaya had lunch the day of the meeting.

"Politics is not the nicest business in the world, but it's very standard where they have information and you take the information", Trump said in a joint press conference with French President Emmanuel Macron.

Akhmetshin, who spoke to AP while on vacation in France, said the meeting was "not substantive" and he "actually expected more serious" discussion. Donald Jr. cut short the meeting with Veselnitskaya and the unnamed Soviet lobbyist when he realized the topic was not the intelligence report against Clinton.

Mr Akhmetshin said the attorney brought with her a plastic folder with printed-out documents. Donald Trump Jr. also invited Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law and a campaign adviser, as well as Paul J. Manafort, who at the time was the campaign chairman.

Akhmetshin said he has not been contacted by the special counsel's office or the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the meeting with Trump Jr., but said he is willing to talk to investigators.

The email chain sparked widespread outrage by Trump's political opponents who have pointed to the meeting as hard evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation against the rival campaign of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Alan Futerfas, an attorney representing Trump Jr., told NBC News that the lobbyist "is a US citizen".

The recent revelation of Donald Trump Jr.'s 2016 meeting with a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer is causing headaches for the Trump administration. They could be called by Robert Mueller and his team to explain what they learned about this June 2016 Trump Tower meeting.
