Trump Tower Meeting Who Was All There

The translator who attended the June 2016 meeting with Donald Trump Jr., Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya and lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin is a former State Department contractor, CBS News' Kylie Atwood has learned.

In response to calls for him to testify before the intelligence panel, Trump Jr. tweeted Monday that he was "happy to work with the committee to pass on what I know".

On Friday it was reported that a Russian-American lobbyist accompanied the lawyer at the meeting as well as a former Soviet counterintelligence officer.

Akhmetshin told the Post that his attendance at the meeting was a last-minute decision.

The president is referring to campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, now a Senior White House Adviser. Veselnitskaya indicated the Trump campaign would have to do more research and it was then that Trump Jr. lost interest.

Krauthammer, a Fox News contributor, wrote that he has always been a skeptic of charges of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, but that he was "open to empirical evidence". He said that "as part of her work, with her clients", Veselnitskaya found that individuals connected to Russian Federation were funding the Democratic National Committee in support of Hillary Clinton, and that she'd "left a document behind" after the meeting.

Veselnitskaya has denied she had provided any such information.

Ahkmetshin told AP that he did not consider the meeting to be "substantive" and had been expecting a "more serious" conversation. He remarked that the recent reaction to the meeting is "a little bit ridiculous and overplayed", but said he would have done things differently.

He was told the "very high level and sensitive information" was being offered as part of "Russia and its government's support for Mr Trump".

This week Trump Jr. revealed that he attended the meeting because he had been promised some incriminating information about Trump's opponent, Hillary Clinton.

He did not notify authorities of the approach.

Quigley was asked whether he thought the Trump campaign had helped to guide Russia's voter targeting and fake news operations during the campaign-a claim reportedly under investigation, but for which there is so far no public evidence.

US President Donald Trump talks with French President Emmanuel Macron during the annual Bastille Day military parade on the Concorde Square in Paris, 14-07-2017.

New details emerged Friday in the meeting between President Trump's eldest son and a Russian attorney.

"I will send the names of the two people meeting with you for security when I have them later today", Goldstone wrote.

As for Irina Agalarova, we haven't confirmed if she was present as she has not responded to our inquiries. Then we learn he was accused of being involved in a hacking operation.
