Donald Trump Jr. Is Literally a Cartoon Villain

Documents show Trump lawyers scramble behind June 2016 meeting fallout

Trump Jr responded "I love it" when first offered the political "dirt" on Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee.

According to his own account, which the Senate Judiciary Committee released on Wednesday, along with lots of other materials from its Russian Federation investigation, Rob Goldstone, the fifty-seven-year-old English music publicist who helped arrange the notorious Trump Tower meeting that took place on June 9, 2016, believed it was a mistake from the get-go.

The June 9, 2016, meeting is of keen interest to investigators probing Russian interference in the presidential election and possible links to the Trump campaign.

"There is no doubt that Russian Federation undertook an unprecedented effort to interfere with our 2016 election", Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr, a North Carolina Republican, said in a statement.

But the participants said Veselnitskaya did not, in fact, provide dirt on Clinton, instead focusing on overturning the United States sanctions on Russia under the Magnitsky Act that the U.S. passed to punish Russian human rights abuses. "The extent of Russia's use of the NRA as an avenue for connecting with and potentially supporting the Trump campaign needs examination", it continued.

On June 14, just days after the meeting, Goldstone wrote to Emin Agalarov and Ike Kaveladze, a California businessman who was born in Russian Federation.

Scaramucci, in a text message to Reuters, said the email "had nothing to do with Russian Federation". But the committee interviewed the five other men who took part in the session, including a Russian American lobbyist who once served in an Soviet counterintelligence unit.

Trump has repeatedly denied his campaign colluded with Russian Federation to get him elected and has denounced Mueller's investigation as a "witch hunt". Russian Federation rejects findings by U.S. intelligence agencies that it sought to aid Trump using computer hacking, propaganda and other means.

Russia, with the knowledge and at the direction of President Vladimir Putin, intervened in the 2016 presidential election in favor of President Trump, the Senate Intelligence Committee has concluded, announcing Wednesday that it agreed with the 2017 assessment by the intelligence community.

Committee vice chairman Mark Warner (D-CA) agreed the ICA conclusions "were accurate and on point", adding Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the interference himself "for the goal of helping Donald Trump and hurting Hillary Clinton".

Goldstone told the committee that the president's son-in-law, Kushner, also seemed annoyed that Veselnitskaya's spiel didn't contain an obvious "smoking gun".

And Trump Jr.'s testimony?

However, his time at the Stadium of Light was hard for the 55-year-old, with the Black Cats getting relegated. Newcastle owner Mike Ashley responded by insisting they would be backing the Spaniard to the full this summer.

Mr Trump and Mr Putin did not end up meeting because, according to Mr Goldstone, Mr Putin was too busy receiving the new King of Holland.

In a note to Goldstone accompanying the statement, the lawyers said it would be "our preference" that Goldstone say "nothing more, at least for the time being".

The Trump Tower meeting was arranged by a music promoter, Rob Goldstone, who reached out to Trump Jr saying he had "official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russian Federation and would be very useful to your father".

"All you need to do is get the meeting", Emin Agalarov told Goldstone in a call.

From the beginning, entertainment promoter Rob Goldstone said, he thought it was a bad idea. "Let's see if that holds".

Trump pushed repeatedly for the Agalarovs to get him a meeting with Putin in connection with the pageant, Goldstone testified. "Just really upset that my dad never listens to me and an unbelievable relationship that I've been establishing for a few years with mr T has been thrown down the drain". It could blow up.

They said there are "more questions than answers given the lack of cooperation by numerous individuals involved" and pressed for their committee's investigation to continue.

"The first order of business in any new inquiry is to conduct a thorough investigation in order to determine the facts".

The committee did not interview Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer at the center of the meeting.

"Each interviewee was advised that we only wanted to hear the truth", he said.

Trump employee Rhona Graff responded to Goldstone that she doubted the candidate could make it, to which Goldstone responded that Trump might "welcome a meeting with President Putin, which Emin would set up".
