Trump Tower transcripts released

FacebookPinterest

Trump Jr. - who had emailed Goldstone ahead of the meeting about the dirt, "if it's what you say I love it" - told congressional investigators he was interested in "listening to information" about Clinton in the June Trump Tower meeting.

Asked if he thought it would be a problem to take a meeting described to him as part of a Russian government effort to aid his father, Trump Jr. said no.

Lawmakers on that committee said they agreed that Putin had wanted to hurt Clinton, but did not agree that meant he wanted to help Trump. Trump Jr. has told House investigators that he did not communicate with his father about the meeting before it happened.

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr said in a statement Wednesday that his staff has spent 14 months "reviewing the sources, tradecraft, and analytic work, and we see no reason to dispute the conclusions".

In addition to Trump Jr., the committee interviewed four other people who attended the Trump Tower meeting in NY - publicist Rob Goldstone, who set up the meeting with the promise of dirt on Clinton; Rinat Akhmetshin, a prominent Russian-American lobbyist; Ike Kaveladze, a business associate of a Moscow-based developer, and a translator.

The almost 2,000 pages of interviews do not appear to contain information that would change the course of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Trump's team and Russian Federation.

Speaking up for mental health awareness
Even if you do not suffer from mental illness, there are ways you can help others overcome the negative connotation. Everyone in the world has mental health, yet the fear of judgement prevents so many of us from talking about it.

But there is also discrepancy between the meeting participants about how long Kushner was present. The committee also included the formal release of the transcript of Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson, who was not at the Trump Tower meeting but whose transcript was unilaterally released in January by Sen.

His notes mention "Russian adoption by American families" and Bill Browder, a British citizen who has spearheaded a USA sanctions law -known as the Magnitsky Act- that targets Russian officials over human rights abuses. "I was aware of none", said Trump Jr., in a seemingly definitive statement within his I-don't-remember-filled interview.

The special counsel is investigating the Russian meddling in the election, whether Trump's campaign was involved and possible obstruction of justice.

Democrats on the committee have raised the possibility that father and son could have discussed the proposed meeting while Trump Jr. was in the midst of arranging it with Russian pop star Emin Agalarov and his British publicist, Rob Goldstone.

"I believed it was a bad idea and that we shouldn't do it".

President Trump and Trump Jr. initially said the meeting was about "adoptions", then modified their stories after Trump Jr. released the email thread showing he received his offer of help from the Russians. "I knew of something", said Trump Jr. They worked out who should sit where, and I sat next to Mr. Kushner.
