Trump Jr. in Russia scandal

He has suspected ties to Russian intelligence. He has served in the Soviet military in a unit, which works closely with the counterintelligence department. "It was not immediately clear whether the campaign expenditure was renumeration for Futerfas's representation of Trump's son, on Russia-related or other matters". The president's son has tried to discount the meeting, saying that he did not receive the information he was promised. He said that "as part of her work, with her clients", Veselnitskaya found that individuals connected to Russian Federation were funding the Democratic National Committee in support of Hillary Clinton, and that she'd "left a document behind" after the meeting. The meeting occurred a few days later. "As Mr. Kushner has consistently stated, he is eager to cooperate and share what he knows", she said. Then, later, he said she claimed to have damaging information on Hillary Clinton.

"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.

Akmetshin's presence raises more questions about who attended the meeting and undercuts Trump, Jr.'s explanation earlier this week. "It's called opposition research or even research into your opponent", Trump said. He added that he wasn't that surprised by the fact that Trump behaved differently in person from the "image he created for himself during his election campaign" as you can not "judge" a person based on the election campaign. "Because we can't let that happen", Trump said.

The emails were sent ahead of a Trump Tower meeting with a Russian lawyer that Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, and Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, also attended. Akhmetshin said he recognized Kushner and Trump Jr. It soon emerged, however, that Trump had signed off on Trump Jr.'s first statement in response to the New York Times' initial report about the meeting.

"The Democrats never want it to end because they have no message, they have no narrative, they have no leader", Lewandowski told "Fox & Friends".

He adds that Veselnitskaya "left a document behind" after the meeting with Donald Trump Jr.

"No one asked us for IDs", Rinat Akhmetshin told Yahoo News in a brief telephone interview Friday.

The department has acknowledged that Sessions omitted from his form meetings he had with foreign dignitaries, including the Russian ambassador.

Akhmetshin said he has not been contacted by the special counsel's office or the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the meeting with Trump Jr., but said he is willing to talk to investigators.

Akhmetshin is a dual U.S.

When Lance responded that he could not rule that out, the MSNBC host said: "Think about how remarkable that is".

"On its face it looks like they finally decided they've got to get people in there who know what they're doing and have experience in these areas", Bennett said.
