Senate Intel Panel Agrees Russia Intervened In 2016 Presidential Election

- Donald Trump Jr. told the Senate Judiciary Committee previous year he did not recall ever discussing the Russia investigation with his father and said he didn't think there was anything wrong with meeting a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower ahead of the 2016 presidential election, according to transcripts released Wednesday of his interview with the panel.

Asked if he thought it would be a problem to take a meeting described to him as part of a Russian government effort to aid his father, Trump Jr. said no.

The statement said the meeting primarily concerned a Russian adoption program, though Trump Jr. later released the emails showing he agreed to the sit-down after he was promised information on Clinton.

The committee said that Trump's son-in-law and close adviser, Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort, his former campaign manager, declined to be interviewed but submitted material relevant to the investigation.

"The public's business ought to be public", Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) told reporters. In a 250-page report, House Republicans said they came to "concurrence with the Intelligence Community Assessment's judgments, except with respect to Putin's supposed preference for candidate Trump".

US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert blamed the incident on the Damascus government. France and the United States stated that the evidence of use of chemical weapons in the Duma.

The June 2016 Trump Tower meeting has been central to those probes.

And when the damaging information didn't materialize, as Veselnitskaya focused on United States sanctions on Russia under the Magnitsky Act that the USA passed to punish Russian human rights abuses, the testimony gives new insight into how Trump's team reacted.

"I believed it was a bad idea and that we shouldn't do it", Robert Goldstone told the Senate Judiciary Committee on December 15, 2017.

But there is also discrepancy between the meeting participants about how long Kushner was present.

The special counsel is investigating the Russian meddling in the election, whether Trump's campaign was involved and possible obstruction of justice.

"I appreciate the opportunity to have assisted the Judiciary Committee in its inquiry", Trump Jr. said in a statement, "The public can now see that for over five hours I answered every question asked and was candid and forthright with the Committee".

The announcement of the completed review of the Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) on Russian activities in the 2016 US elections was announced in a press release from committee chairman Sen.

The transcripts also included interviews with Glenn Simpson, a co-founder of Fusion GPS, which researched Trump's ties to Russia and produced a dossier denounced by the White House, and Robert Goldstone, a music publicist who said he had information about Clinton, and written responses to questions from the committee from Natalia Veselnitskaya, a Russian lawyer who attended the meeting, and Anatoli Samochornov, her translator.

Trump Jr. also said he did not inform his father about the meeting ahead of time, because he didn't want to bring him "unsubstantiated" information. "He may have entered a minute or so after we all entered, but I believe he was". "I knew of something", said Trump Jr.
