Trump, Jr. Meeting With Russian Lawyer Undermines Media's Collusion Narrative

Ronna Romney Mc Daniel sat down Thursday morning with the hosts of Fox & Friends and suggested it was'hypocritical for people to be bringing up Trump and Russia when there are questions swirling about a Democratic contractor working with the Ukra

Both the House and Senate Intelligence committees are investigating Russia's attempt to manipulate the outcome of the 2016 USA presidential election as well as allegations of collusion between members of the Trump campaign and high-ranking Russian officials. "He took a meeting with a Russian lawyer, not a government lawyer, but a Russian lawyer". He'll also work closely with Trump's personal lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, who is the head attorney handling the case for Trump.

The Inquisitr also noted that the emails revealed clearly that Trump Jr. had knowingly accepted an offer of potentially damaging information about Clinton from the Russian government.

US President Donald Trump said Thursday that his son's meeting with the Russian lawyer who promised incriminating information on Hilary Clinton was 'standard opposition research, ' at a joint press conference with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris. Please describe any conversations you have had with your father, his attorneys or White House officials about the meeting. That includes reigning in the President, who is known for ranting on Twitter about the matter. "I never thought this would be such a big deal, to be honest", he told the AP. "If it's what you say, I love it, especially later in the summer", he emailed back to Goldstone. "Rinat Akhmetshin, who denies these allegations, confirmed his participation in the June 2016 meeting to The Associated Press on Friday".

Veselnitskaya said she also represented Russian property developer Aras Agalarov at the time of the meeting with Trump, Jr.

According to tweets published by Trump Jr. earlier this week, Goldstone sent him an email pointing to "a Russian government attorney" as the source of potential information that could damage Clinton.

"At the minimum, they were caught lying about saying there were no meetings", he said. He said he was unaware of the content of the documents or if they were provided by the Russian government, and it was unclear if Veselnitskaya left the materials with the Trump associates.

Krauthammer, a Fox News contributor, wrote that he has always been a skeptic of charges of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, but that he was "open to empirical evidence".

"I personally know the general prosecutor", Veselnitskaya said.

It has emerged as the firmest evidence yet of non-diplomatic interactions between Trump campaign aides and Russian figures.

"We were reviewing it before the stories from last weekend, and we are continuing to review it", Foy said.

In an interview with NBC News this week, Veselnitskaya specifically addressed ― then ruled out ― any possibility that she provided Trump Jr. with records about DNC finances.

She said that Trump Jr. said at the end of the meeting that her information was "interesting", but there was nothing they could do to help her with it.
