Ken Jensen: Trump Jr. talked about orphans? How about Russian murderers, too

Donald Trump Jr. will get an invitation - or a subpoena - to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee investigating his 2016 contact with a Russian lawyer.

News outlets reported late in June Manafort recently registered as a foreign agent with the U.S. Justice Department.

However, the emails Donald Trump Jr received pitched her as one.

Congress is asking the president's son to publicly testify about the meeting.

Corker said he thought there should be more congressional review of foreign policy.

Trump Jr. said the meeting "really went nowhere" and that he never told his father about it because there was "nothing to tell". Putin had said it seemed to him that Trump had "agreed" but added "it's better to ask him about his attitude".

On Tuesday, Trump Jr. told Fox News' Sean Hannity: "In retrospect, I probably would have done things a little differently", but added that the meeting came before Russian involvement becoming a major story during the campaign season. "All I can say is Trump Jr. met him for the first time and learned his name minutes before the meeting and he was introduced as a friend".

Hoping to send a message to President Donald Trump to maintain a strong line against Moscow, the Senate passed the sanctions on Russian Federation, part of a broader measure also imposing new sanctions on Iran, by 98-2 on June 15.

One rank-and-file Republican lawmaker has said what most others in his party aren't willing to: He thinks President Donald Trump's children - including Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner - should be out of the White House. "I love it", Trump Jr. told his acquaintance. The government, the lawyer said, "made the further accommodation of allowing his Russian lawyer into the country to assist".

The Department of Homeland Security confirmed to BuzzFeed News that it granted Veselnitskaya special permission to enter the United States in 2015, so that she could participate in a civil court case involving her client, the Russian-owned investment company Prevezon Holdings. "Zero happened", Mr Trump insisted.

He also said they discussed how to strengthen US-France security partnership.

The remarks in Paris during a joint news conference with French President Emmanuel Macron came even though Trump's own Federal Bureau of Investigation pick has said the authorities should be alerted to requests for such meetings during a campaign and even after Donald Trump Jr. said he would rethink his own conduct in agreeing to the gathering in the first place. He was told the Russian government had information that could "incriminate" Clinton and her dealings with Russia.

"Whether it's Russian Federation or anybody else, we can't let there be even a scintilla of doubt when it comes to an election", the president said, ignoring the fact that almost a year ago as a candidate he publicly invited Russian Federation to find and steal Clinton's missing emails deleted from her personal server.

Trump sidestepped a question about applying new sanctions on Russia and offered his endorsement of existing sanctions on Putin, Russian banks, and the oligarchs.
