Senate releases 2500 pages that detail 2016 meeting at Trump Tower

Donald Trump Jr

"He said, 'It doesn't matter. You just have to get the meeting", Goldstone, a British citizen, testified. Kaveladze was previously interviewed by special counsel Robert Mueller over his attendance at the June 9, 2016 meeting.

This marks the second of four interim findings the intelligence committee has said it will publicize before tackling the more consequential question of whether Trump and his associates colluded with Russian Federation to influence the election's outcome, allegations the president has denied and sought to discredit. Trump Jr., however, knew nothing about the USA sanctions on Russian Federation going into the meeting.

Mr Trump Jr deflected multiple questions during the interview, including whether he discussed the Russian Federation probe with his father. Goldstone also revealed that Veselnitskaya's apparently Clinton-free presentation in the meeting had "infuriated" Kushner.

Wednesday's statement also included remarks from Sen.

That's according to transcripts of his interview past year with the Senate Judiciary Committee released on Wednesday.

Mysterious notes written by the former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort were released by the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday.

Music publicist Rob Goldstone, who arranged the meeting at the request of Azerbaijani-Russian pop singer Emin Agalarov, said he thought the meeting was a "bad idea".

But at the meeting, "Veselnitskaya wanted to talk about USA imposed sanctions on Russian Federation under Magnitsky Act".

"Americans rightly have many questions about this meeting, and today, we are releasing the transcripts and exhibits from interviews we've conducted to allow the public to know what we know", Grassley said.

Mueller has brought several unrelated charges against Manafort, including money-laundering conspiracy, false statements and acting as an unregistered foreign agent related to Ukrainian political work. But the committee interviewed the five other men who took part in the session, including a Russian American lobbyist who once served in an Soviet counterintelligence unit.

There are other questions too, that the transcripts raise but don't answer, including a discrepancy about how long Kushner was at the meeting as well as follow-up between the meeting participants - they had denied any follow-up, but the transcripts are the latest piece of evidence to contradict that assertion.

"I had no way of assessing where it came from, but I was willing to listen", he said.

In the days preceeding the meeting, Goldstone, who helped organize the meeting, wrote to Trump Jr.in an email - which President Donald Trump's eldest son would release a year ago after the meeting was first reported - that "The Crown prosecutor of Russian Federation... offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russian Federation and would be very useful to your father".

"The Senate Intelligence Committee, which continues to press ahead with its investigation, is soon expected to release the second of four interim reports, with its final report expected in the fall".

Trump has repeatedly denied his campaign colluded with Russian Federation to get him elected and has denounced Mueller's investigation as a "witch hunt".

Trump Jr. had previously said on Fox News in July that he hadn't told his father about the meeting, but he told the committee that he could not recall whether or not he discussed the meeting with his father.

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

The Washington Post reports that the transcripts include an account of attempted meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Trump after the 2013 Miss Universe pageant, which was held in Moscow.
