According to the emails released by Trump Jr., the lawyer - Natalia Veselnitskaya - was described to Trump's son in an email as a "Russian government lawyer" with information that was part of the country's effort to help elect his father.
"Potentially people associated with the Trump campaign and maybe the campaign itself is what is being investigated, it doesn't mean it's true", Halperin said. "It's called 'opposition research' or even research into your opponent", said Pres. Trump.
New York attorney Marc Kasowitz, who has represented Trump in several legal matters over the years, appeared to be set off by an email from a retired public relations professional who told Kasowitz he ought to resign, according to messages obtained by the investigative nonprofit ProPublica news site.
It is hoped that a breakthrough can be reached soon, with Democrats hoping to water down the language enough for them to be able to pass it.
It comes as the US conducts a highly-charged investigation into claims that Moscow intervened in the election to benefit Mr Trump as he faced Democratic rival Hillary Clinton at the polls. The lawyer's dirt about Clinton was "vague, ambiguous and made no sense", however, and Trump Jr. ended the meeting after "20 to 30 minutes". If that sentence weren't damning enough, the lawyer added the material was "part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump".
The Republican president drew criticism last week from Democrats who accused him of not pressing Putin hard enough at a meeting they held in Germany over Moscow's alleged interference in the 2016 US presidential campaign.
Macron had warned on the eve of Trump's arrival that "the Western world is fracturing since the American election" and that the world order established after World War II was under threat. It was a short meeting as he told me - because I only heard about it two or three days ago. He wouldn't say what he wants to hear from Donald Trump Jr., but said members aren't restricted "from asking anything they want to ask". When President Obama signed the law, Russian President Vladimir Putin was so vexed that he halted U.S. adoptions of Russian children in retaliation. Both Veselnitskaya and the Kremlin have denied any connection. Then, within the last few weeks as his attorneys were sorting through his old emails, they stumbled across the exchange between Don Jr and Rob Goldstone on which Jared was cc'd. But the committee's chairman, Republican Sen.
There's a "no" listed, but the rest of the answer is blacked out. "The ceasefire is a positive step, but whether it will survive or be effective is still very uncertain", says Mr. Klimov. "He is not focused on stories about the campaign, particularly stories about the time before he joined the ticket".
And yet, the drafter of the Declaration of Independence nonetheless understood the value of a free press in keeping government honest and guarding against despotism and the abuse of individual liberties.
In a statement, Lynch said she had no knowledge of Veselnitskaya's travel. "Strong military, strong borders - but he cares less about the borders - but strong military, tremendous". The iPhone fiddler apparently referred to Manafort.
The Justice Department has released a heavily blacked out page from Attorney General Jeff Sessions' security clearance application.
And those are just the famous cases. Marshall compares Goldstone's tone to that of someone wearing a wire who's trying to establish wrongdoing by the target of the sting.
