Donald Trump's Eldest Son Faces Questions In US Congress About Russia

Donald Trump Jr

Lawmakers said they want to question him about a meeting with a Russian lawyer in June 2016 at Trump Tower in NY at which he had said he hoped to get information about the "fitness, character and qualifications" of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Democrat his father defeated in last year's race for the White House.

"More nothing burgers from the media and others desperately trying to create a false narrative", Donald Trump Jr.

The 51 pages of written answers were submitted to the Senate Judiciary Committee, according to NBC News. Trump Jr. said, "The pretext of the meeting was 'Hey I have information about your opponent.'" Shaking his head, Trump Jr. continued, "It was this 'Hey, some DNC donors may have done something in Russian Federation and they didn't pay taxes..."

Congressional investigators will question Donald Trump Jr. on Wednesday as part of their probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election. She also said she had no such information and "that she believes Trump misunderstood the nature of the meeting after receiving emails from a music promoter promising incriminating information on Hillary Clinton".

Kate Middleton steps out wearing handsome Diana hand-me-down
The tiara was known to be gifted to Princess Diana by Queen Elizabeth II in 1981 on her wedding day to Prince Charles. Kate Middleton attended the Queen Mary's Lover's Knot tiara (not pictured) on Tuesday for a palace party.

Trump Jr. met with the Senate Judiciary Committee in September, when he discussed details of a controversial meeting he attended at Trump Tower in Manhattan on June 9, 2016, during the presidential campaign, along with other campaign officials and a Russian lawyer.

The White House on Tuesday strongly denied that the special prosecutor looking into alleged Russian interference in last year's election has asked a German bank for records relating to accounts held by President Trump and his family members. Trump, a billionaire, is the richest USA president ever, although some analysts have questioned whether Trump's assets total $10 billion as he claims.

Lawmakers probing potential collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump presidential campaign will question the president's son about his direct contacts with Kremlin-connected officials Wednesday, in the first of two expected interviews before congressional intelligence committees.

A separate 2016 meeting with Alexander Torshin, a senior Russian politician and central banker close to President Vladimir Putin, has added to the scrutiny of President Trump's eldest son.

In response to questions from Senate investigators, Veselnitskaya also acknowledged that she worked with Glenn Simpson, a former Wall Street Journal reporter and co-founder of Fusion GPS, in a separate investigation of hedge fund investor Bill Browder, the accountant for Sergei Magnitsky, whose death spurred Congress to pass a law restricting Russians' access to the US banking system.

Last month, Trump Jr. shared messages he exchanged with WikiLeaks during the 2016 campaign. Last month, Goldstone said he was ready to come to the United States to talk to special counsel Robert Mueller, though a date was not set.

The subpoenas concern "people or entities affiliated with President Donald Trump, according to a person briefed on the matter", the Wall Street Journal reported in an update to its story.

But the White House has admitted that President Trump was involved in drafting a public statement reacting to the news when it broke.

Representatives for the Democrat and Republican lawmakers leading the Russian Federation investigation for the House Intelligence Committee declined to talk about upcoming interviews.
