Russian Federation lobbyist attended Trump son's meeting

In emails posted by Donald Trump Jr. earlier this week, an associate who arranged the meeting said a Russian lawyer wanted to pass on negative information about Democrat Hillary Clinton and stated that the discussion was part of a Russian government effort to help the GOP candidate. Forty minutes later, he posted, "With all of its phony unnamed sources and highly slanted and even fraudulent reporting, #fake news is distorting democracy in our country".

Jay Sekulow, one of Trump's personal attorneys, appeared on multiple Sunday talk shows to say the meeting didn't violate the law and that the president wasn't aware of the meeting and didn't participate. He said the president did not attend the meeting in NY and was not aware of it. Trump's chief strategist, Steve Bannon, sought to model the White House's Russian Federation war room in the vein of former President Bill Clinton's operation during the investigations of his White House in the 1990s, two people familiar with the matter said.

At first, the June 2016 meeting was said to be about a Russian adoption program.

On an appearance Tuesday night on Fox News Channel, Trump Jr. downplayed the importance of the meeting, saying it produced nothing worth passing on to his father.

"They couldn't wait for the meeting to end", Mr. Akhmetshin said.

The emails - which the younger Trump published on Twitter, pre-empting their release by The New York Times - were released as the White House contends that investigations of possible campaign collusion with Russian Federation are nothing more than a "witch hunt".

Makarova and Vesnina cruise to Wimbledon women's doubles title
It soon became clear that would not be the scenario playing out however, as Russians Makarova and Vesnina tore through the first set.

The White House continues to deny he colluded with Moscow to interfere with the 2016 election.

Mr Trump Jr's attorney Alan Futerfas called the reports "much ado about nothing".

Though, it is still unclear whether Veselnitskaya actually fulfilled the promised compromising information about Clinton or not.

"Our intelligence committee needs to interview him and others who attended the meeting", said Republican Senator Susan Collins.

On Friday, Caputo testified before a closed session of the House Intelligence Committee. His disapproval rating rose to 58 percent, and 48 percent of those polled said they "disapprove strongly" of his performance, citing a loss of United States leadership overseas and the Republican health care bill.
