Donald Trump Jr. asked Russian lawyer for info on Clinton Foundation

Rep. Tom Rooney, R-Fla., left, and Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., leave a House Intelligence Committee meeting as it breaks for a House floor vote from interviewing Donald Trump Jr., on Capitol Hill, Wednesday, Dec. 6, 2017, in Washington.

"I don't believe you can shield communications between individuals merely by having an attorney present", he said.

On Wednesday, Dec 6, Donald Trump Jr. testified before the House Intelligence Committee in a closed-door session regarding any direct contact with Russian officials during the 2016 United States presidential campaign.

Representative Mike Conaway, the Republican leading the investigation, said Trump Jr had answered all of his questions. If Donald Trump Jr. met with her as she says he did to get information about his father's political opponent, that is collusion, or at least attempted collusion.

In emails pitching Trump Jr. on the meeting, Goldstone said Veselnitskaya was able to provide the Trump campaign with "some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary (Clinton) and her dealings with Russian Federation".

That appears to be highly unlikely, as Turner said in a following comment that Game of Thrones is supposed to launch only in 2019. She also talked about her upcoming projects, including "X-Men: Dark Phoenix ", in which she will reprise her role of Jean Grey.


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". He said the President, according to the sources, was debating between a longer and a shorter statement while Trump and Hicks were aboard Air Force One.

Trump Jr. has maintained that it quickly became clear Veselnitskaya had no such information and the meeting revolved around the subject of Russian adoption.

The committee meeting was conducted behind closed doors, and Trump Jr. was not seen by reporters waiting outside the meeting room, although congressional officials confirmed he had arrived.

In September, Trump Jr. told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he, Goldstone and Agalarov "never discussed the meeting again".

Trump Jr. frustrated panel Democrats by refusing to answer questions related to the controversial meeting, amid a probe that is investigating whether Trump campaign aides colluded with the Kremlin.

Lawmakers and legal experts immediately derided Trump Jr.'s invocation of attorney-client privilege, noting on social media and in news outlets that the mere presence of a lawyer does not make a conversation protected.

No, he can't. It wasn't even his attorney, it was one of Trump's attorneys.

In the end, this is a matter that would have to be resolved by the courts, assuming that either the committee or special counsel Mueller want to pursue the matter.

Just days after the meeting, Goldstone apparently forwarded a message to Kaveladze referencing a report about Russia's breach of the Democratic National Committee. "Counsel made a claim of attorney-client privilege".

However, Rep. Mike Conaway, the Texas Republican leading the committee's Russian Federation investigation, did not express the same concerns as Schiff about Trump Jr.'s response.
