Donald Trump with Rob Goldstone

Share

The Senate Judiciary Committee plans to ask Paul Manafort, President Trump's former campaign chairman, to testify about about Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting a Russian attorney that was arranged last June on the pretext of exposing damaging information about Hillary Clinton.

His comments came after Trump Jr, in a Fox News interview on Tuesday, said: "In retrospect, I probably would have done things a little differently".

The Trump e-mails are the most concrete evidence to surface to date showing that Trump campaign officials might have been willing to accept Russian help to win the November 8 election.

USA intelligence agencies have said the Russian government meddled in the election through hacking to aid Mr Trump.

"There are many things that I do that are the exact opposite of what he [Putin] would want", Trump told CBN News.

Joe Pesci reunites with Robert De Niro, Martin Scorcese in 'The Irishman'
The Irishman will be based on the true story of the disappearance of American labour union leader Jimmy Hoffa. Shooting for the film is scheduled to begin in August this year, and will continue through to December.

This is a pretty interesting defense, because Trump Jr.is essentially stating that it's unfortunate that he didn't receive intelligence from Veselnitskaya - even though it's clear from the email exchange that Trump Jr. knew that such information would have been part of "Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump".

"Are there any ties between Mr. Trump, you or your campaign, and Putin and his regime?" asked George Stephanopoulos.

"I am not a person who goes around trusting lots of people". Well, who are the people saying that?

Despite what Sanders' adamant denial suggests, the changing narrative around the meeting with the Russian lawyer, in the words of Washington Post's Philip Bump, "was not a one-off example of a staffer or ally loyal to President Trump being caught in a factual error or omission related to Russia".

Although he and Putin were able to forge a ceasefire agreement in part of Syria, Trump said their interests collided over other issues.

The publicist, Rob Goldstone, wrote in the initial email that the information was coming from the "Russian government", to which Trump Jr. responded, "I love it".

The new video reveals how close Mr Trump was to the Agalarovs, who he reportedly described as "the most powerful people in all of Russian Federation, the richest men in Russian Federation". We're going to be self-supporting, we just about are now.

CNN on Wednesday released a video showing (now President) Donald Trump attending a dinner with key figures at the centre of a growing controversy over alleged Russian interference in the USA presidential election.

Past year and again in March, Trump Jr. angrily denied meeting with Russian representatives, calling such reports "phony" and "disgusting". "That's what Putin doesn't like about me", Trump said.

The Republican claimed his Democratic adversary would have weakened America's military and driven up energy prices - two things he says the Kremlin would have welcomed. But all Americans deserve to know what really happened in the Kremlin's effort to put Donald Trump into the White House.
