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

"I don't think this is the right time, but the answer is yes, I would", Trump said when asked if he would extend such an invitation to the Russian leader.

He claimed the meeting was billed as part of a Russian government effort to help Mr Trump during last year's USA presidential election campaign.

Veselnitskaya, who was described as a "Russian government attorney" in the email chain, revealed earlier this week that a man had accompanied her to the meeting.

Even some members of Trump's own Republican Party have said it would be in the president's best interest if he removed all of his children from the White House, including Kushner, who is married to the president's eldest daughter Ivanka.

Akhmetshin said Veselnitskaya brought with her a plastic folder with printed-out documents and that he was unaware of its content or whether they had been provided by the Russian government.

NBC claimed that some USA officials believe the lobbyist has ties to Russian intelligence.

The revelation of two additional meeting attendees appears to contradict Trump Jr.'s recent comments, as he claimed he's been totally transparent about the meeting and said all relevant information had been reported.

Appearing on CNN Friday morning, Democratic congressman Mike Quigley of IL insisted that Trump Jr.'s contact with lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya was proof positive of collusion with the highest members of the Russian government. This sentence: Donald Trump Jr. called his father. Russian Federation denies meddling, and Trump says there was no collusion.

"Most people would have taken that meeting; it's called opposition research", President Trump said.

Co-host Willie Geist read Trump's tweets on the MSNBC morning show as the panel accused Trump's White House of using anonymous sources "all the time" despite the president often mocking the use of anonymous sources by the mainstream media.

The now-infamous meeting in which Donald Trump Jr. sought incriminating information about Hillary Clinton was attended by one more person than previously thought.

Additionally, it is interesting to note that Jared Kushner recently revised his list of foreign agents he had met, adding over 100 individuals, and this individual was not included.

The president's son has tried to discount the meeting, saying he did not receive the information he was promised.

The United States Senate Judiciary committee wrote a letter to Donald Trump Jr. on Thursday, asking him to testify before the committee, Chairman Chuck Grassley told CNN on Thursday.
