Senate Transcripts Show That Trump, Jr., Wanted to Collude with Russians

The top Democratic and Republican members of the Senate Intelligence Committee announced their agreement on Wednesday that Russia tried to help Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election that vaulted him to power

Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee released a document on Wednesday that claims they have evidence suggesting Russian Federation may have used the National Rifle Association (NRA) to "secretly fund" President Donald Trump's presidential campaign.

The Senate Intelligence Committee, of Republican Majority, argues that Russian Federation interfered in presidential elections of 2016 in order to favor victory of Donald Trump, a sis that was aligns with that of intelligence services of United States but That clashes with what was raised only two months ago by Republicans mselves of or chamber of Congress, that of Representatives. (A pop-music promoter? Please.) But the Trump Tower meeting is now a topic of endless conjecture, as well as one of the focal points of Robert Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

Akhmetshin said that [Natalia] Veselnitskaya, the Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer at the center of the meeting, began discussing some wealthy contributors to the Clinton Global Initiative.

Here are some key findings.

A declassified version of the ICA - whose information was collected and coordinated by the CIA, FBI and NSA - was publicly issued on January 6, two weeks before Donald Trump's inauguration. Indeed, it appears that her pitch about Russian adoptions and overturning USA sanctions went nowhere because Trump's family members and campaign staff were expecting something much more actionable about Clinton. He said the information had come from the "Crown prosecutor of Russian Federation", which isn't an official government title in Russian Federation, but "crown prosecutor" is roughly the equivalent of the attorney general in Goldstone's native Great Britain.

Trump Jr., said he was at the time not aware of this supposed offer, and that he was not aware of any other instances in which Goldstone sought to arrange meetings between Russian government officials and the Trump campaign.

But the new information helps explain why Goldstone had written the candidate's son before the meeting that Veselnitskaya would bring "very high level and sensitive information" that was part of "Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump" - and why Trump Jr. responded, "if it is what you say, then I love it". And or people who participated in June 2016, five months after presidential elections, in a Meeting with a Russian lawyer in NY.

Though the early contacts described a meeting with a "Russian government attorney" and an "ultra sensitive" matter, Goldstone after the fact suggested the meeting was "in no way connected with the Russian Government or any of its officials".

Goldstone went on to relay that the Washington Post was reporting that the FBI was investigating the meeting.

"A. He may have commented through Hope Hicks".

"A. I believe some may have been, but this was an effort through lots of people, mostly counsel". We were in the process of replacing Corey Lewandowski, who as the campaign manager, with Paul Manafort.

But on a number of other questions, he drew a blank, including whether his father uses a blocked phone number.

"You know, Jeffrey Dahmer was famous", Goldstone responded, referring to the serial killer. There is "Trump Change", a 1998 cut off of E-40's Hall of Game, but I severely doubt that anyone who knows Donald Trump is cool enough to put him onto late-90s E-40. "That is exactly what occurred here", he wrote, adding that lawyers interviewed those who attended the meeting.

"This was the most embarrassing thing you've ever asked me to do", he said he told him.

We will remind, after elections of the President of the United States in the fall of 2016, the Central Intelligence Agency came to the conclusion that hacker attacks from Russian Federation on formal institutions during the campaign were sent directly to support Donald trump.

Veselnitskaya only agreed to provide written answers from Russian Federation to the panel's questions.

The 40-year-old son of the president told Congress he does not remember informing his father of the meeting before it was reported by The New York Times a year later. In short, I wish I had not spent five hours of my day going through them, but alas, here we are.

Seventeen minutes after Goldstone sent his e-mail, Trump, Jr., replied: "Thanks Rob I appreciate that. 'I did say at the time this was an very bad idea and a terrible meeting'".

"We may have different opinions", Burr said.

A few notes, though: Browder is the USA businessman behind the Magnitsky Act, which the Russian government hates.
