Former Soviet Counter Intelligence Official at Trump Jr. Meeting

  • Former Soviet Counter Intelligence Official at Trump Jr. Meeting

In response, Mr Trump Jr wrote: "I love it".

As an attorney, Veselnitskaya was involved in a Justice Department lawsuit against a Russian investment law firm where her access to the USA became an issue. US troops will open the parade Friday as is traditional for the guest of honor.

On Tuesday, Trump's eldest son Donald Trump Jr.released emails showing he embraced Russia's efforts to support his father's presidential campaign. But to the inexperienced minds of Kushner and Trump Jr., the calculation may have been as simple (and feeble) as: Why not? "I have accepted a request from the House Intelligence Committee to meet with them for a voluntary interview and I look forward to sharing with them everything I know".

The Iowa senator's letter to DHS Secretary John Kelly referenced a formal complaint filed by American investor Bill Browder, who alleged Akhmetshin had failed to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).

The president's legal team was informed more than three weeks ago about the email chain arranging the meeting between Trump Jr. and the Russian lawyer, two sources familiar with the handling of the matter told Yahoo News. To which Trump Sr. frankly responded: "There are a lot of killers". Veselnitskaya has said that she can not read or write English, but may speak some.

"It was not a campaign issue at that time and there was no follow up", he said.

Asked about Mr Akhmetshin and his possible participation in the meeting, Dmitry Peskov, spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin, told reporters: "We don't know anything about this person".

The latest revelation adds another shift in the tale that has sparked questions over the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation. "End up in a fistfight?"

Trump also disputed that Putin ever claimed Trump had accepted his denials, insisting Putin "didn't say that".

Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and current White House senior adviser, and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort also attended the meeting.

The June 2016 meeting with President Trump's son has heightened questions about whether Trump's campaign coordinated with the Russian government during the election, which is the focus of federal and congressional investigations.

The June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower with Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort included at least eight people.

"My son is a wonderful young man", the president said. "Zero happened from the meeting".

And what are the Russians going to do, say, Yeah, heck, we did it.

Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said he wants Trump Jr.to testify "pretty soon", perhaps as early as next week.

Congressional and federal investigators are scrutinising alleged Russian meddling in the United States election.

"What I said, I asked him, were you involved?" He added that he didn't know if the documents were from the Russian government. CNBC could not immediately reach their representatives.

There's a "no" listed, but the rest of the answer is blacked out.

The department had already acknowledged that Sessions omitted from his form meetings he had with foreign dignitaries, including the Russian ambassador.
