Rob McKenna on what Trump Jr.'s email 'blunder' could mean

Rob McKenna on what Trump Jr.'s email 'blunder' could mean

Caputo says he was never asked about his time in the country while on the campaign.

It's also unclear who CNN was referring to when it mentioned an attendee who was "a representative of the Russian family" who'd helped arrange the meeting.

According to Mr Akhmetshin, Mr Trump Jr asked her if she had evidence to prove the claim, but the lawyer urged the Trump campaign to research the matter. Meanwhile, one of Kushner's top lawyers is stepping aside from the Russian Federation investigation.

Federal investigators and congressmen are investigating potential links between the campaign and Russian Federation.

The email chain sparked widespread outrage by Trump's political opponents who have pointed to the meeting as hard evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation against the rival campaign of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

President Donald Trump dismissed the meeting during a press conference in Paris on Thursday.

NBC News first reported Mr. Akhmetshin's role in the meeting, but did not identify him. "Lanny Wiles, whose wife, Susie, was then chairing the Trump campaign in Florida, said in an interview that he came early to scout out the seat and was there at the request of Akhmetshin, with whom he was working as a consultant on the sanctions-related adoption issue".

Veselnitskaya, who says she is a former Moscow regional prosecutor but now works as a private attorney, represents Prevezon Holdings, a Cyprus-based hotel and real-estate group owned by Russian national Denis Katsyv, whose father is a former Moscow official.

Russian Federation has earlier denied accusations of meddling in the November 8 election and has called such allegations absurd.

Pelosi made that statement as she announced on Friday "a new coordinated effort" by Democrats to try to get records regarding the Trump family's and administration's ties to Russian Federation.

But Republicans from the White House to Capitol Hill have said Democrats are playing "political games" and are being "hysterical".

Richard Hasen, an election-law professor, agreed that while such emails do not constitute a formal charge, they could help to build a criminal case against the Russians.

"We will expose House Republicans' inaction for their willful, shameful enabling", Pelosi said Friday.

The Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr. and others on the Trump team after a promise of compromising material on Hillary Clinton was accompanied by a Russian-American lobbyist - a former Soviet counterintelligence officer who is suspected by some us officials of having ongoing ties to Russian intelligence, NBC News has learned. He confirmed to The Associated Press that he attended the meeting. His disclosure marks another shift in the account of the meeting.

Akhmetshin said he has not been contacted by the special counsel's office or the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the meeting with Trump Jr., but said he is willing to talk to investigators.

Finally, the emails show that the US president's eldest son was enthusiastic about the idea that he could get some dirt on Hillary Clinton from the Russians. That's what Rob Goldstone, the slippery British music publicist who acted as a go-between, told him.

The Senate Judiciary Committee is reviewing records from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on Rinat Akhmetshin, the former Soviet intelligence officer who met with Donald Trump Jr.in June 2016.

Accusations by United States intelligence agencies that Moscow meddled in the election and colluded with the Trump campaign have dominated the Republican president's first months in office.
