Trump re-election campaign paid $50000 to law firm now representing Trump Jr

Trump re-election campaign paid $50000 to law firm now representing Trump Jr

Though Spicer maintained that the meeting was only about "adoption and the Magnitsky Act", Trump Jr. told Sean Hannity last Tuesday he had "never even heard of" the Magnitsky Act "before, you know, that day".

The revelation came after Rinat Akhmetshin, a Russian-American lobbyist who once served in the Soviet army, confirmed on Friday to The Washington Post that he was present at the meeting on June 9, 2016.

Trump's son said he had been promised damaging information about his father's opponent, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. A lobbyist with alleged ties to the Russian government was also in attendance, as was then Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and the president's son-in-law Jared Kushner. The President later tweeted in support of his son's appearance on Fox News and said in an interview with Reuters Wednesday that "many people would have held that meeting".

A source close to the story said there were at least two other people in the room as well, a translator and person representing a Russian family who had asked Goldstone to set up the meeting.

"[Trump Jr.] didn't know the name before and had no recollection after that". Akhmetshin denied being a spy working covertly in the USA on behalf of Moscow.

Sekulow dodged when asked whether there were any additional emails that Trump Jr. did not release, saying only, "I've not reviewed any other documents".

When asked, Arya says she is on her way to King's Landing to "kill the Queen", and the soldiers laugh and laugh. To celebrate his appearance on the show, Ed posted photos taken during the filming of the episode.

Trump Jr.'s meeting with Veselnitskaya was first reported over the weekend by The New York Times.

There is lying, and then there is what Fox News's Eric Bolling did when he reversed the facts of the Russian Federation story to claim that it was really Hillary Clinton who was colluding with Russian Federation to get dirt on Trump.

In one of the emails, Goldstone writes that the information being offered "would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russian Federation and would be very useful to your father".

President Donald Trump plans to put a veteran Washington lawyer, Ty Cobb, in charge of overseeing the White House's legal and media response to investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign.

The White House says nothing substantial came out of the meeting, and would have taken the opportunity to get opposition research on a campaign opponent.

Last week, reports emerged that the eldest of Donald Trump's children met with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer promising dirt on Hillary Clinton that had been obtained by the Russian government in its bid to help Donald Trump.
