Goldstone Followed Up On Trump Tower Meet With Trump Aide, His Client

Russian Lawyer Confirms That Trump Jr. Met With Her To Get Dirt On Clinton

The meeting is of keen interest to Special Counsel Robert Mueller and several Senate and House committees that are investigating whether the Trump campaign worked with Russian Federation to interfere in the 2016 election.

Lawmakers said they want to question him about a meeting with a Russian lawyer in June 2016 at Trump Tower in NY at which he had said he hoped to get information about the "fitness, character and qualifications" of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Democrat his father defeated in last year's race for the White House.

According to Trump Jr., President Trump was not alerted of the meeting between Trump campaign officials and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya when it happened, but the two had a conversation regarding the events after the meeting went public.

The Washington Post reports Trump Jr. only issued the "adoptions" explanation to the New York Times after his own father dictated he say the meeting was about adoptions.

The Skirball Fire in LA Is Burning Down Rupert Murdoch's House
The 405 North freeway remains closed between the 10 and the 101 freeways, making it challenging to access some local businesses. The fire burned more than 11,000 acres by Wednesday morning and had destroyed an estimated 30 homes, KTVU-TV reported.

The Trump Tower meeting is also being investigated by Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller. In this case, however, it appears from reports that Trump Jr.is claiming that the conversation that took place before the White House statement regarding the Trump Tower meeting that was released earlier this year was between the President and his attorney and Trump Jr. and his attorney.

The initial statement in July 2017 gave a misleading impression of the meeting, which later turned out was billed to Trump Jr.as a way to get dirt on the Clintons.

"If it's what you say I love it especially later in the summer", Trump Jr. wrote to the intermediary, in reference to obtaining the compromising information about Clinton. None of the emails were sent directly to the president's son, and were sent between British publicist Rob Goldstone and then-campaign aide Dan Scavino, who is now the White House's social media director and assistant to President Donald Trump. "They stuck to their position that they were not going to share any conversations that Donald Trump Jr. had with his father about the June 9th meeting", Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., told CNN Wednesday night. In the meantime, Schiff said, the lawyers have asked for more time to decide how to handle the claim.

"He acknowledged discussing that matter with his father, but refused to answer questions about that discussion along the basis of a attorney-client privilege".

Malta announces 10 arrests in journalist's murder
The family has lamented in the past of being kept in dark by the police as to the progress of the investigation. Two more people have been arrested since Prime Minister Joseph Muscat's press conference this morning.

This question gets to a pattern legal experts have noticed among key members of the Trump campaign and administration: They continually forget, misstate, mislead or even - in the case of Flynn - lie about their relations with Russian Federation.

Painter said that if members of the House Intelligence Committee eventually want to compel Trump Jr.to answer questions, they could force him to testify again.

Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas, one of the Republicans leading the probe, said the interview was "professional" and described Trump Jr.as "cooperative at all times".
