The meeting was attended by Kushner, former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, and Rob Goldstone, a music promoter. But according to Don Jr., he's just a befuddled and loving son thrust into a world of politics and Russian pop stars that he was ill-prepared for. "Every single day I fielded dozens, if not hundreds, of emails and phone calls", he said, echoing Kushner's claim that he was extremely busy when he agreed to sit in on the meeting.

"Love it", the younger Trump responded in setting up the meeting.

Trump Jr., who entered the Capitol out of sight of reporters, also denied that he had colluded with Russian Federation during the campaign, the paper reported. As I recall, it was all basically this email coordination.

He said he had planned to meet with his lawyers after hearing her out to determine what to do with her information, but it was not immediately clear if those meetings took place.

Trump Jr entered the Capitol under cover and did not speak with reporters.

July 10, 2017: The email exchange described above was then unearthed and Trump Jr.'s lawyer told the Times it all was "much ado about nothing". In his statement, Trump Jr. told Congress that it is "possible that we left each other voice messages". That official met with a billionaire business friend of Trump's, who called his son, who called his publicist, who pitched Trump Jr. on a Russian offer of "high level" and "sensitive" information damaging to Clinton. One of the participants in the meeting had said that a document was left behind by the Russians.

Manafort Blocks FBI from Obtaining Transcript of Interview with Senate Committee

Grassley's panel is investigating a number of issues linked to the Russian interference campaign, including "attempts to influence US elections" and whether there have been any violations of foreign lobbying laws.

"I did not collude with any foreign government and do not know of anyone who did". I am grateful for the opportunity to help resolve any lingering concerns that may exist regarding these events.

Committee staff members met last month with Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of the strategic research firm that commissioned the unsubstantiated dossier that claims Trump conspired with Russian Federation to win the election. Coons may believe that Donald Trump Jr. made false statements to the Senate Judiciary Committee while testifying. Several congressional committees are also looking into the matter, with the Senate and House intelligence committees conducting the main congressional investigations.

CNN reports that the Federal Bureau of Investigation said it obtained permission from Manafort's attorney to view the transcript, but the committee says it was instructed to not disclose the document.

"There certainly are a lot of areas that have been opened for future witnesses and questioning, and a lot of areas of interest to be pursued", Blumenthal said.

Meanwhile Rice, who has come under fire from House Republicans over her handling of classified intelligence reports when serving as then-President Barack Obama's national security adviser, is meeting with the House intelligence committee Wednesday morning, a source with direct knowledge told CNN.
