Trump Jr. says he didn't tell his Dad before meeting Russians

"The meeting provided no meaningful information and turned out to be not about what was represented", Trump Jr. told the Senate Judiciary Committee, according to recently released transcripts. The panel also released more than 700 pages of exhibits including numerous emails, heavily redacted phone logs and court depositions.

Mr Trump repeatedly has insisted that there was "no collusion", something Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating.

"The House Intelligence Committee majority's assertion that Russian Federation did not aim to assist Trump or that the Intelligence Community fell short in applying rigorous analytical tradecraft now stands in lonely isolation - rejected by the Intelligence Community, by the findings of the Mueller investigation and by Intelligence Committee members in both chambers who have objectively reviewed the facts", he said.

The Senate committee's agreement with the intelligence agencies stands in stark contrast to the House Intelligence Committee, where the Republican majority disputed the conclusion that the Russians tried to help Trump defeat Clinton.

One of the report's chapters will go into greater detail about why the committee agrees with the intelligence agencies' report in 2017.

"After pleasantries were exchanged, the woman stated that she had information that individuals connected to Russian Federation were funding the Democratic National Committee and supporting Ms. Clinton", Trump Jr. said in a statement.

On Wednesday, Don Jr. said that the transcripts show that he had cooperated with the investigation. Publicist Rob Goldstone said his source could provide "official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary [Clinton] and her dealings with Russian Federation".

Trump Jr had had high hopes.

Trump Jr. responded to Goldstone on the chain, "if it's what you say I love it especially later in the summer".

Britain's Lewis Hamilton wins Spanish Grand Prix
Ferrari have had the best auto so far this year, but Spain marked a turning point with Mercedes dominating throughout the weekend. Verstappen then hit back of Sirotkin, but despite sustaining damage to his front wing, held off Vettel with relative ease.

But when that did not materialize, it left the members of the Trump team upset, particularly Kushner. The follow-up never happened.

Trump quickly added, "I wouldn't say it's entirely good for the women or the women of Iowa".

Emails and texts showed coordination - and a hint of panic - as Goldstone, Emin Agalarov, and Trump Organisation lawyers sought to contain the fallout after the meeting was revealed by emails released by Trump Jr. and the New York Times published an account on 8 July 2017. He also said he didn't know if his father used a blocked number.

However, democrats argue there's likely more to the story. Veselnitskaya declined to be interviewed, but provided written answers to questions.

The panel also did not interview Kushner or Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign chairman, though both attended the meeting. Nunes, who became the subject of an ethics inquiry a year ago, delegated day-to-day oversight of the panel's Russian Federation investigation to Rep. Michael Conaway, R-Texas, but remained peripherally involved, approving subpoenas and other related actions.

Jared Kushner was apparently not pleased when he attended a 2016 Trump Tower meeting that he expected would provide dirt on then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, according to recently released interviews with the man who arranged the meeting. I am on the road at the moment but perhaps I just speak to Emin first.

The newly released documents include testimony from five of the people who were there on June 9, 2016: Trump, Jr.; Goldstone; Irakly (Ike) Kaveladze, the employee of the Agalarovs; Rinat Akhmetshin, the consultant; and Anatoli Samochornov, the interpreter for Veselnitskaya. "And I gave the reason for that being that I am a music publicist".

Mr Goldstone told the Senate committee that on the day of the pageant, around 4pm, a call came in to Mr Aras Agalarov from Mr Dmitry Peskov, Mr Putin's top spokesman.

But Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., said Trump Jr. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said it was "very clear that the objective of the Russian interference was to try to undermine confidence in our Democratic institutions - and that's why western democracies in general have been targeted by the Russians", she said.
