Futerfas confirmed that, "for the goal of security or otherwise, the names were reviewed" but said Trump Jr. knew nothing about the man's background at the time of the meeting. This is the puzzle now at the heart of the Trump's presidency that Robert Mueller will undoubtedly solve.

Monday night, he sat down with Sean Hannity, promising the meeting about Russian adoptions that then became about getting "dirt" on Hillary Clinton was very quick, and he had been, as President Trump claimed, fully "transparent".

On Tuesday, Donald Trump Jr. released an email chain relating to the conversation he had with Veselnitskaya.

The meeting has heightened questions about whether Trump's associates coordinated with Russian Federation to meddle in the presidential election - to help him and thwart Hillary Clinton - and whether they've been forthcoming about their foreign contacts.

The White House is hiring Ty Cobb, a veteran Washington lawyer with experience as a prosecutor and defense attorney to assist with Russia-related investigations, a source familiar with the matter said on Friday. In fact, your investigation and others into the allegations of Trump campaign collusion with Russian Federation are costing my family a great deal of money.

Grassley said no questions would be off limits as the panel investigates what the US intelligence community has concluded was Moscow's election interference, personally directed by Russian President Vladimir Putin, into the 2016 USA election. Kushner needed to revise his security clearance forms to reflect the June meeting, which he previously omitted. The woman, as she has said publicly, was not a government official.

"Zero happened", the president said. He described his time in the military as routine, serving from 1986 to 1988, like "millions of other Soviet boys".

International Mineral Resources hired a private investigator to follow Mr Akhmetshin to London.

Akhmetshin denied to the Washington Post that he served as a Russian intelligence agent.

Veselnitskaya confirmed to CNN and MSNBC that Kushner attended the meeting but said he was there for only "seven to 10 minutes" and she had never meant to hand over damaging information about Clinton anyway.

Mr Akhmetshin told the Washington Post he became a U.S. citizen in 2009 but retains his Russian nationality. We learned about this meeting days ago.

At that March 20 public hearing, Speier referred to Caputo as Russian President Vladimir Putin's "image consultant".

Mr. Akhmetshin was one of the people at the meeting.

He said he showed up with her at the Manhattan skyscraper wearing jeans and a T-shirt.

The meeting was set up by Rob Goldstone, a British music publicist for Russian pop star Emin Agalarov.

What was the meeting about?

The e-mails show that - though the lawyer (Natalia Veselnitskaya) whom Trump, Jr. met with was not actually involved in government service and seems to have set the meeting up under false pretenses to talk to Trump Jr. about laws related to USA citizens adopting Russian children - Trump, Jr. believed he was meeting a "Russian government attorney" who was associated with the "Crown prosecutor of Russia".

In Hamburg, Putin said he believed he had already established a personal relationship with Trump, adding that "the TV Trump is very different from the person in reality".

Given that her meeting with Trump Jr. was in June-several months after even her parole was set to expire-Grassley is now seeking information on how Veselnitskaya "may have been able to stay in the United States until June", and is requesting information on "any visa applications, visas held, or visa application denials relating to Veselnitskaya and any documentation relating to the conditions of her parole into the United States".

"This could be a good issue to expose how the DNC is accepting bad money", Veselnitskaya reportedly told the Trump associates at the time, as recalled by Ahkmetshin.

Jamie Gorelick said Friday that she remains part of the legal team of President Donald Trump's son-in-law, and will continue to help Lowell.
