Dems read Trump Jr.'s emails on House floor

Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch says she had nothing to do with the travels of a Russian lawyer who met with the eldest son of President Donald Trump.

Nothing came of the meeting, said Trump Jr., who initially dismissed the meeting as one sought by the lawyer so she could appeal for changes in a USA policy that blacklists Russian human rights violators. He was told that the meeting was part of an effort by the Russian government to aide his father's presidential campaign, and that Veselnitskaya was offering to provide damaging information about Clinton to that effect.

Trump Jr. released a series of emails about the meeting in which he said he would "love" to learn of information that could have harmed the Clinton campaign.

Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, named Akhmetshin in a complaint in March about people who are effectively engaged in lobbying work but do not register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

Separately, Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House intelligence committee, said his panel wants to look at the use of Russian social media "trolls" and whether they were connected to the Trump election campaign.

Trump Jr. was told in the emails that the source had "sensitive information" that was "part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump". In light of the revelation of the meeting between Trump Jr., and the Russian attorney, which Manafort reportedly participated in by phone, Grassley said the questioning could go beyond possible collusion with Russian attempts to interfere in the 2016 election.

Panel members will be free to ask "anything they want to ask", Grassley said Thursday.

"I could recognize the young gentleman who was only present in the meeting for probably the first seven to 10 minutes, and then he stood up and left the room", she said.

Grassley's letter also mentioned that Akhmetshin had allegedly worked with Fusion GPS, the company that created the infamous dossier alleging a Trump-Russia conspiracy.

While the committee has not confirmed that they have invited or plan to invite Trump testify, Sen.

"Emin just called and asked me to contact you with something very interesting", Mr. Goldstone wrote in a June 3 email.

The lawyer for Donald Trump Jr. has not responded.

Although he's entangled in the larger web created by the Russian Federation probes, Manafort previously disclosed this meeting to congressional investigators before Trump Jr. leaked his emails - but he wasn't required to disclose the content of it.

Kushner, the president's senior adviser and Jewish son-in-law, oversaw the Trump campaign's successful digital operation throughout 2016. The person spoke on condition of anonymity on the basis that Manaforth's relationship with the committee was considered.

Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who was head of the Democratic National Committee when it was hacked during the 2016 campaign, proposed an amendment to a spending bill for the Justice Department that would revoke the security clearance of anyone working in the executive office of the President who was under federal criminal investigation.

Trump asked: "What do you do?" It has been said that he watches more TV than any president before him. In response to the Magnitsky Act, Russia disallowed adoption of Russian children by US citizens.
