FBI Director: Trump, WH Not Trying to Interfere in Mueller's Russia Probe

FBI Director: Trump, WH Not Trying to Interfere in Mueller's Russia Probe

However, the interview once again signals how close the Russian Federation investigations are getting to the president, who has repeatedly dismissed the suggestion of collusion between the Kremlin and his campaign a "witch hunt".

A timeline of Donald Trump Jr.'s comments and contradictions about his meeting with a Russian lawyer in June of 2016. It's a crime to lie to Congress.

In the meantime, here are four critical questions about the investigations that Trump Jr. can help shed light on.

When news of the meeting with the lawyer broke earlier this year, the younger Trump at first said that the main topic at the encounter was child adoption from Russian Federation but then he released emails that showed his reason for attending the meeting was to receive possibly damaging information about Clinton. But Trump Jr. said he thought he "should listen to what Rob and his colleagues had to say".

"If it's what you say I love it", Trump Jr. replied.

That mirrored his previous statements that sought to dismiss the meeting as a bust.

Veselnitskaya has maintained she didn't have any damaging information on the Clinton campaign.

Trump Jr. said he did not attend the Moscow special event, noting he hasn't traveled to Russian Federation since 2011. Instead, this dummy gleefully put Donald Trump's campaign manager and senior advisor on the email chain and sent out an Outlook invite. But when he received the initial email that ultimately led to the Russian meeting, Trump Jr. said he hadn't heard from Goldstone in "quite some time". He released emails this summer that showed it was "part of Russian Federation and its government's support for [President Donald] Trump".

He said Goldstone didn't give him a list of who would attend ahead of time, and Trump Tower security also has no record, Trump Jr. said, because Goldstone was able to bring the "entire group up" by only giving his name to a guard in the lobby. "I had no way to gauge the reliability, credibility or accuracy of any of the things he was saying", Trump Jr. said in his statement Thursday.

Trump Jr., who, along with his brother Eric, is now running the president's global business organization, arrived on Capitol Hill in Washington, and the meeting began around 9:30 a.m. He's a bumbling doofus who took an illicit meeting in which he didn't learn anything useful, and yet still managed to get the entire administration in trouble in the process.

Donald Trump Jr.is connected to many of those spokes.

Last month, USA special counsel, Robert Mueller, convened a grand jury in Washington, DC to further investigate Moscow's involvement.

The meeting was publicly disclosed in July 2017, and Trump Jr. released several differing statements about the meeting before releasing copies of the emails that show the scheduling of the meeting. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, told CNN there hasn't been a decision on whether Trump Jr. will have to testify in a public hearing.

The panel's interview of Trump Jr was similar in format to that of Kushner, who met with Senate and House intelligence committee staffers to discuss his ties to Russian Federation. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Thursday.

Mr Trump Jr is also expected to appear before the Senate intelligence committee at some point.

"Think of it more like a preparation for the trial, much like a deposition, where a witness may be asked questions, and we can use his answers to potentially impeach him when he testifies at the public hearing - in other words, to contradict him", Blumenthal said.

Erin Pelton, a spokeswoman for Rice, said she had met voluntarily with the committee as part of its investigation. The congressman, who has suggested that Republicans and Democrats on the House intelligence panel might produce two separate final reports, said he never believed work could be wrapped up this year.
