Lawmakers intend to question Trump campaign chairman

Donald Trump Jr. 39 now runs the family real estate business in his father's stead

As I learned in interviews with all three elder Trump children, Donald Jr. was the Trump child most reluctant to join the enterprise built around his father's personality.

Others have heaped praise on Donald Jr. and others for their supposed transparency: "They want to get their story out", said Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa, apparently forgetting that several Trump confidantes have lied and omitted information about their contacts with Russians, and that Donald Jr. released his devastating e-mail correspondence only because The New York Times was poised to publish it.

Washington Post White House bureau chief Philip Rucker on Wednesday reported, "White House officials tells us President Trump has been watching plenty of TV news this week, when he's had nothing on his public schedule".

Manafort would certainly also be asked about his participation in a Trump Tower meeting last June with President Donald Trump's eldest son and son-in-law, where the purpose was to hear potentially damaging information about Hillary Clinton from a Russian lawyer. "It does not ask for a resignation in protest, but rather is a powerful reminder of history and of the continuing duty of our AUSA's to follow the constitution and to do justice in the face of a President who knows of neither", Futerfas wrote at 9:12 a.m. Jan. 31.

The Prevezon case garnered high-profile attention, given its ties to a $230 million Russian tax-fraud scheme and the Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, whose suspicious death aroused international media attention and spurred the passage of the Magnitsky Act in 2012.

"The functioning perfectly", Trump tweeted Wednesday morning. The real issue now is how far-reaching the legal and political fallout will become. Trump Jr. later put out an amended statement clarifying what happened and that the meeting had also been about Clinton. We can't keep changing the rules every time it's convenient for Democrats, then cry whataboutism when someone points it out. The party claims to have suddenly developed a peculiar fixation with election security, but it's plainly about constricting the electorate to protect Republicans from feeling voters' wrath over their unpopular policies.

"I think we get along very well and I think that's a good thing, that's not a bad thing", Trump said in an exclusive interview with Pat Robertson, founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), an American television network.

According to New York Magazine, in college, he was the wild child of the clan who drank too much and wasn't so sure he wanted what waited for him in the family business.

Meanwhile, Mr Trump is due to meet French president Emmanuel Macron in Paris on Thursday. It has a "Queen of Spades flavor to it", he says - "off with their heads".

Investigations into possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign have shadowed the White House for months. Now the White House is about to make it even more so with a scheme to shrink the electorate and skew it towards the GOP. He would like Hillary where she wants to have windmills.

"In retrospect I probably would have done things a little differently", Trump Jr. said.

"This is before the Russia mania, this is before they were building this up in the press".

But let's set that assertion - that revision of his famous "no puppet, you're the puppet" line from the third presidential debate - aside. He also said that he didn't fault his son for attending. I am not a particularly fierce Russia hawk, but the Russians are still a more-hostile-than-not power these days, with stronger incentives to subvert American democracy than the average foreign government. What the emails show is that we must not look away until they have led wherever they will.

There is a second protection as well for those accused of treason. When she returned to the U.S. after the war, she was convicted of treason, served six years of a 10-year sentence. The rollback of environmental regulations - which under Trump's EPA director Scott Pruitt has been one of the most consequential results of Trump's victory - is widely despised.
