Goldstone Followed Up On Trump Tower Meet With Trump Aide, His Client

Russian Lawyer Confirms That Trump Jr. Met With Her To Get Dirt On Clinton

Other GOP lawmakers on the panel echoed that Trump Jr. cooperated with their questioning. Those emails made it clear that objective of the meeting was based on the claim that the Kremlin-linked lawyer could deliver damaging information about Hillary Clinton, a prospect that elicited a response from Trump Jr. that said: "Sounds great!"

But Trump Jr. did not provide details about communications with his father and invoked attorney-client privilege because of the presence of attorneys during the exchange with his father.

"We will be following up with his counsel", Schiff said.

Representative Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the US House of Representatives Intelligence Committee investigating allegations of Russian interference in last year's US election, said Trump Jr answered the "overwhelming majority" of questions from committee members in his hours of testimony.

When Trump Jr. posted his full email exchange with Goldstone on Twitter showing he was promised the meeting would produce dirt on the Clinton campaign, George Kaveladze emailed his father asking why Trump Jr. was admitting "collusion", two sources with knowledge of the email told CNN. He also told the committee he initially discussed a response with Hope Hicks, a top campaign aide now serving as White House communications director, according to a committee source. And whatever was said between father and son after emails concerning the meeting became public would certainly be relevant to understanding the role the president might have played in orchestrating the response to the damaging reports about Trump Jr.'s effort to obtain Clinton "dirt". "They stuck to their position that they were not going to share any conversations that Donald Trump Jr. had with his father about the June 9th meeting", Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., told CNN Wednesday night.

The government said he later misled investigators and destroyed key documents. Both the imprisonment and fine were at the top end of sentencing guidelines.

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 who was his father's presidential election opponent.

As Schiff noted in his statement, it is critical to know exactly what Donald Trump knows about his son's secret meeting with the Russians during the campaign, and what they talked about after it took place. "Counsel made a claim of attorney-client privilege".

The White House acknowledged President Trump's involvement in crafting his son's misleading statement.

Legal experts say that's not how attorney-client privilege works. Additionally, a conversation that includes a party and his attorney along with a third party that the attorney does not represent would generally not be considered privileged.

"Recent revelations have shown beyond question that the American people can only feel certain that Mr. Trump, Jr. has been fully forthcoming if he is subject to a subpoena", Blumenthal wrote to Grassley, The Hill reported. The court would then be called upon to consider whether or not the conversation at issue fell within the boundaries of what is covered by the privilege and, if it does, then the content of those conversations could not be compelled. None of the newly disclosed emails were sent directly to Trump Jr. In this case, it doesn't necessarily matter if it was attempted or if it came to fruition.
