Senate panel backs intelligence agencies findings on Russian meddling in 2016 election

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci

Trump Jr. says the Russian attorney offered information involving Democratic donors possibly avoiding taxes, but he wasn't interested because none of the points raised were "campaign issues".

Michael Moore, who served as the U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia, said the documents don't contain much new information about the meeting itself, but it is interesting to see the steps that were taken to hide that the objective of the meeting was to obtain dirt on Clinton. Admits that his far may have participated in drafting of a White House statement that meeting had been proposed as part of Russian effort to help omitted election campaign.

Watch the "Daily Briefing" segment above.

Adviser and son-in-law trump Jared Kushner and former head of the electoral headquarters of the trump by Paul Manafort declined to be interviewed, but as the document says, "have provided material relevant to the investigation", and Natalia Veselnitskaya answered the Committee's questions in writing, according to the website of the TV channel "Rain". "He was nearly like lying there, like, you know, on his phone, and it's through the whole meeting", Akhmetshin said.

"Our staff has concluded that [intelligence services] findings were accurate and correct", said Senate committee vice President, Democrat Mark R. Warner, in a joint statement with president, Republican Senator Richard Burr.

Meanwhile, the Senate intelligence committee said it stands behind a 2017 assessment by USA intelligence agencies that Russian Federation intervened in the election to hurt Clinton and help Trump.

The top Democrat on the House intelligence committee agreed. The meeting was being arranged at the direct request of Donald Trump, he testified. That testimony falls squarely within the campaign finance law statutes and at least suggests that there was a willingness on the part of Trump Jr.to engage in preliminary discussions "regarding the acceptance of such information, which could be considered a "thing of value" under the law". That conclusion differs from a House intelligence committee report released last month. As Veselnitskaya moved on to discuss Russian adoption it was "palpable" that Trump Jr. was no longer interested in the meeting, Akhmetshin added.

Goldstone later claimed that the meeting at Trump Tower was largely disappointing, telling the Sunday Times of London that the information Veselnitskaya had presented was "vague, generic nonsense", despite promising "information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russian Federation and would be very useful" to then-candidate Donald Trump. When asked about the House findings, he said: "Well, I'm not sure the House was required to substantiate every conclusion with facts". "I never spoke with my father about it".

The transcripts provide a timeline of the days leading up to the meeting as well as misgivings about its appropriateness. "I have no idea what this meeting was actually about".

"I'm a music publicist".

Rep. Mike Conaway, a Texas Republican who ran the House's Russian Federation investigation, told CNN he supports their conclusion "until I know any differently" and downplayed the difference as just a "narrow" one.

Trump was reportedly hoping that the Miss Universe contest could open doors to a major development deal in Moscow.

"I said to him, 'Don, I really want to apologize, '" he told the Senate Judiciary Committee during a Russian Federation inquiry hearing in December 2017.

Agalarov responded: "That should give you mega PR".
