Adam Schiff Lays Out The Devastating Timeline Of Russia-Trump Campaign Collusion

Donald Trump Jr. changed account of meeting with Russian lawyer

Aras Agalarov was also working to partner with Mr Trump in bringing Trump Tower to Russia, a project that never materialised, Forbes said, estimating that his fortune was worth about $1.9bn (£1.4bn). Kushner, as now, was a top adviser to Trump.

The President's Daily Brief has already been tailored to President Trump's preferences, after initial concern he wouldn't take them at all, because he insisted he was already well versed with the topics. Do you find it remotely believable that he somehow forgot a meeting that he set up, between a party-line Russian lawyer and the campaign?

Veselnitskaya is known for founding a group purporting to seek the removal of Moscow's ban on the adoption of Russian children by US citizens. Of course, the sources to the New York Times are not named.

The email was from publicist Rob Goldstone, according to the report, and made it clear that the information would be from an effort from the Russian government to aid Trump's campaign to defeat Hillary Clinton.

The Kremlin said it "did not know" who Veselnitskaya was.

Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner were also at the June 2016 meeting. The scheme quickly snowballed into one of the biggest corruption scandals of Putin's tenure. Everyone who was in that meeting ought to come before our committee.

More revelations that could place the administration in peril.

Trump's tweet, which referenced a "Fox & Friends" tweet, followed an article in The Hill newspaper suggesting that some memos Comey wrote contained classified information. The ban abruptly halted plans for 50 children to join new families in the US and led to worsening US-Russian relations.

Mr Trump Jr has defended attending the meeting, saying the promised damaging information did not materialise. Responding to the paper's Sunday report, Trump Jr. acknowledged that he was told Veselnitskaya "might have information helpful to the campaign". Trump has cleared the GOP field, but still faces the prospect of a delegate revolt at the July convention. Will there be a vote next week, like the White House suggests? Goldstone did not immediately respond to attempts to contact him Monday night.

President Donald Trump's eldest son says he's willing to communicate with the Senate Intelligence committee. In an accompanying flourish, he retweeted the New York Post's headline: "The Times 'expose' on Donald Trump Jr.is a big yawn". Federal and congressional investigators are probing whether Trump's campaign co-ordinated with Russia to meddle in the presidential election, investigations the president has called a "hoax".

According to the New York Times, the offer by Ms Veselnitskaya was part of a Russian government effort to help his father's election campaign, and that information was sent in an email by Mr Goldstone to Mr Trump Jr.

"No one would imagine [the Trumps] would be a bumbling family ... that would have this level of incompetence".

"That's not the way it was intended to be", he said. Trump Jr. didn't name the acquaintance.

Trump appeared in a music video with Agalarov in 2013. Attorney General Jeff Sessions failed to disclose his own meetings with Russian officials during the campaign.

The Kremlin, meanwhile, is disavowing knowledge of the Russian lawyer, or any meeting between Trump senior staff and the woman. These emails that are described, we need to see.

The recent spree of differing accounts is hardly the first time the White House has struggled to push a cohesive message. Trump Jr. initially said the meeting focused on a disbanded Russian adoption program.

Even if the situation demanded a follow-up, why did he go this deep?

The Magnitsky Act was passed to punish those suspected of being involved in the death of Russian tax lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, who uncovered a $230 million tax fraud scheme in 2008 that implicated high-level Kremlin officials and allies of President Vladimir Putin. Mark Corallo, a spokesman for President Donald Trump's outside legal team, would not comment on the Times story, reiterating only that Trump "was not aware of and did not attend the meeting". "Since Officer Yanez was not convicted of a crime, as a public employee, he would have appeal and grievance rights if terminated", the city said in its statement.
