Transcripts shed light on Trump Tower meeting with Russians

Senate Intel Panel Agrees Russia Intervened In 2016 Presidential Election

Senate Intel Panel Agrees Russia Intervened In 2016 Presidential Election

As more damaging details about the true objective of the meeting trickled out, Trump Jr. on July 9 issued a new statement admitting that he had actually sought damaging information on Clinton from these Russian actors.

Trump dismisses any talk of collusion. Goldstone wrote. "And because I am not able to respond out of courtesy to you and your father".

Much of the testimony released Wednesday revolves around the Trump Tower meeting when Trump Jr. accepted the sit-down with Veselnitskaya and invited his brother-in-law Jared Kushner and top campaign aide Paul Manafort to attend as well.

Trump reportedly believed the meeting could open doors to lucrative developments in Russian Federation. According to Trump, Jr., she only handed over "something about individuals connected to Russian Federation supporting or funding Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton or the Democratic National Committee".

It could not be more obvious that Trump Jr. was asking a foreign source for information to help his father win an election.

On Wednesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee released testimony that Trump pressed for the meeting ahead of the Miss Universe contest, which was being held in Russian Federation that year.

Scaramucci's email was released Wednesday by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican, as a part of roughly 1,800 pages of documents stemming from closed-door interviews about the controversial meeting. "Every person." Its conclusion would seem to be self-evident given, among other things, the hacking and releasing of emails from the Democratic National Committee and Clinton's campaign chairman John Podesta, and offers of assistance to only the Trump camp.

"To call the Senate Judiciary Committee's Trump-Russia investigation halfhearted is too generous", he said.

The intensity with which Agalorov and his father, the billionaire Aras Agalarov, sought the Trump Tower meeting, which has become a key point of scrutiny for congressional inquiries and special counsel Robert S. Mueller, was revealed in more than 2,500 pages of congressional testimony that was released by the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday.

I'm seeing the media brush aside these facts and concentrate on Trump, Jr.'s, statement that he doesn't remember if he told his father about the meeting.

Trump Jr. told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he didn't tell his father about the meeting, although the White House has said President Trump was involved in drafting an initial statement about it. Of course, the culminating piece of evidence in any obstruction of justice case would likely be the firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey.

The special counsel is investigating the Russian meddling in the election, whether Trump's campaign was involved and possible obstruction of justice. Nunes, who became the subject of an ethics inquiry previous year, delegated day-to-day oversight of the panel's Russian Federation investigation to Rep. Michael Conaway, R-Texas, but remained peripherally involved, approving subpoenas and other related actions. Fun fact: Donald Trump appeared in one of Agalarov's music videos to hurl a signature "You're Fired!" zinger.

"In the transcript from Trump Jr.'s testimony, he says, "(I) n his email to me Rob suggested that someone had official documents and information that would incriminate Hilary Clinton and her dealings with Russian Federation and that the information would be very useful to the campaign".

Q. Have you ever asked him if he was given this e-mail or told about this meeting? "I've just sat in a meeting about adoption".
