Trump Jr. May Be Interviewed By Senate Intel Committee

Meanwhile, The New York Times reports that Goldstone told Trump an email ahead of the meeting that the Russian government was behind the information on Clinton.

The email was sent by British music publicist and former journalist Rob Goldstone while setting up the meeting in June 2016. Trump Jr. admitted as much in his statement but worded it in such a way that made it sound like the lawyer just wanted to discuss American adoption of Russian children.

Manafort, the Times reports, "recently disclosed the meeting, and Donald Trump Jr.'s role in organizing it, to congressional investigators who had questions about his foreign contacts, according to people familiar with the events".

Representatives of the younger Trump and Kushner confirmed that the meeting with the woman, a Russian lawyer named Natalia Veselnitskaya, had taken place at Trump Tower as reported.

The meeting was set up at the request of Emin Agalarov, a Russian pop star whose Kremlin-connected family helped sponsor the Trump-owned Miss Universe pageant in Russia, according to Goldstone.

It's her first public comment since Donald Trump Jr. acknowledged that he made time for the meeting hoping to get information on Clinton, his father's Democratic presidential opponent. "It quickly became clear that she had no meaningful information", the statement also said.

FDA approves sickle cell treatment, the first in almost two decades
According to the National Institutes of Health, approximately 100,000 people in the United States have sickle cell disease. It is most likely to occur among minority groups, and leads to a life expectancy placed somewhere between 40 and 60 years.

According to the NBC interview, Veselnitskaya suggested she didn't initiate the meeting; she says she was lobbying against USA sanctions affecting Moscow but wasn't acting on behalf of the Kremlin.

Trump denies Russian Federation had any involvement in the election, adding he spoke to President Vladimir Putin about the claims during the G20 summit in Hamburg.

Mark Corallo, the spokesman for the president's personal lawyer, told The New York Times on Sunday that the president "was not aware of and did not attend the meeting" with Veselnitskaya, a move some saw as an early effort to distance the White House from Don Jr., who does not serve in any official capacity in his father's administration. But that's Trump Jr.'s story and he's sticking to it.

Allegations of the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation have cast a shadow over the Republican president's first months in office and sparked investigations by congressional committees and a federal special counsel, Robert Mueller, into whether Russian Federation interfered in the election and colluded with the Trump campaign.

"Obviously I'm the first person on a campaign to ever take a meeting to hear info about an opponent", Trump Jr. wrote, adding, "Went nowhere but had to listen".

Trump Jr. tweeted Monday that he's "happy to work with the committee to pass on what I know". It was immediately scorned by several of Trump's fellow Republicans.

South Korea Disputes North's Claim of Long-Range Missile Test
President Donald Trump said Thursday he's considering unspecified "pretty severe things" in response to the North's ICBM launch. He also said the agency had not detected any unusual activity at North Korea's Punggye-ri nuclear test site.

Trump Jr., his attorney and the White House have all downplayed the significance of the meeting. Perhaps so. But the questions that should be concentrating the minds of the president's inner circle are legal, not political - and Mueller's high-powered team of lawyers is experienced at connecting dots.

A Republican member of the US Senate Intelligence Committee, Susan Collins, called on Trump testify before the panel, which is looking into accusations of Russian meddling in the election.

In the background of the June meeting, Russian hackers were also allegedly attacking the Democratic National Committee computer network.

If that little nugget of information, which insiders are saying is what happened, if it is true, then yes, the Trump campaign absolutely is guilty of collusion.

Obama worked "behind the scenes for months to forge a new working relationship with Russia, despite the fact that Russian President Vladimir Putin has shown little interest in repairing relations with Washington or halting his aggression in neighboring Ukraine", Bloomberg News reported in 2014. He noted that he realized it was the agenda of the Russian lawyer all along.
