Russian officials say that Trump accepted its assertion that it did not try to interfere in its former Cold War foe's electoral process, though the US intelligence community has said that the Kremlin tried to tilt the scale of American democracy toward Trump.
"They've confirmed the intel community's conclusion that the highest levels of the Trump campaign were willing to have a meeting with Russian officials, told them that they had information that would help election Donald Trump, and their response was 1) we'll take meeting 2) boy that's great", Mr. Deutch said.
In an interview on "The 700 Club", Trump claims that Vladimir Putin did not want him to win the election based on his stances on the military and energy.
"I would know a little bit about it".
Taking to Twitter early in the morning, the president praised Trump Jr.'s performance Tuesday night during a Fox News interview in which he sought to downplay the significance of an email exchange before the meeting in which he welcomed the assistance of a "Russian government attorney". The Democrats asked for copies of any messages showing such contacts.
Hours after the son posted the emails, the father rose to his defence. "Because from day one I wanted a strong military, he doesn't want to see that".
Experts say Trump jnr's actions cannot be categorised as treason, but some attorneys say events described in the e-mails could amount to a conspiracy to break campaign finance law.
