Trump confronts accelerating Russia probes

Trump Jr. to testify in Senate, Manafort lawyer subpoenaed: CNN

"Depending on what, if any, information they had, I could then consult with counsel to make an informed decision as to whether to give it further consideration".

"After perfunctory greetings, the lawyer began telling the group very generally something about individuals connected to Russian Federation supporting or funding Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton or the Democratic National Committee", Trump Jr. said.

Large adult son Donald Trump changing his story about his sit-down with the Russian lawyer again.

The younger Trump, along with his brother-in-law Jared Kushner, now a White House adviser to the president, and then campaign manager Paul Manafort, met with a woman described as a "Russian government attorney", Natalia Veselnitskaya, after an intermediary had told the younger Trump that she would hand them information that would "incriminate Hillary" as "part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump" in the election. He released emails this summer that showed it was "part of Russian Federation and its government's support for [President Donald] Trump".

Blumenthal told CNN that Trump Jr.'s interview did not put his concerns to rest, and instead opened up new lines of questioning.

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. The interview was being conducted by staff, but a handful of Democratic senators attended. The email suggested someone had incriminating information about Clinton - Trump Jr. said in his statement he was "somewhat skeptical of his outreach" and didn't know quite what to make of the offer.

Upon receiving an email from Rob Goldstone setting up the meeting, whom he called a "colorful" music promoter, Trump Jr. responded by saying: "I love it".

"We look forward to a professional and productive meeting and appreciate the opportunity to assist the committee", Alan Futerfas, a lawyer for Trump Jr., said on September 6. He told the Times in March that he never met with Russians on behalf of the campaign, a statement his lawyer has since said was meant to refer to Russian government officials.

"It seems like there's not a week that doesn't go by that another undisclosed meeting doesn't come up or another relationship", Senator Mark Warner of Virginia, the top intelligence committee Democrat, said in an interview as lawmakers returned to Washington. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), ranking member of the Judiciary Committee, told CNN Wednesday that Trump Jr. will eventually give a public testimony - whether the president's son submits to it voluntarily or is subpoenaed.

Donald Trump Jr.'s closed door statement (which was not made under oath) to the Senate Intelligence Committee has already leaked to the New York Times.

In an e-mail response to Goldstone, Trump Jr wrote that if the promised information about Clinton was as advertised, "I love it".
