Just days after Donald Trump Jr. said he had revealed everything about his meeting past year with a Kremlin-linked attorney, we've now learned that at least one more Russian was in the room with Natalia Veselnitskaya.

The New York Times broke the story, and it was later confirmed by Trump Jr himself, who tweeted out the email exchange that led to the meeting.

Akhmetshin has also lobbied against the Magnitsky sanctions placed on a number of high-level Russian officials.

Both Akhmetshin and Samochornov are named in an April 2017 complaint by the Senate Judiciary Committee examining the question of possible collusion between the Russian government and the Trump campaign.

Although he denies having any current ties to Russian intelligence agencies, Akhmetshin, a Russian-born American who had served in the Soviet military before he emigrated to the US and still holds dual citizenship, is suspected by USA security agencies of maintaining previous ties to Russian intelligence. "Never", he told the Post.

"Just because I was born in Russian Federation doesn't mean I am an agent of [the] Kremlin", he told Politico recently.

Akhmetshin has been reported to have ties to Russian intelligence agencies, though he denies ever working as an intelligence agent.

The move comes one day after Grassley announced that he will be calling former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort to testify before the committee.

On Thursday, President Trump defended his eldest son's attendance at the Trump Tower meeting.

On Tuesday, Donald Trump Jr. released private emails showing that he agreed to meet with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya during his father's election campaign. It's called opposition research, or even research into your opponent.

Trump Jr. "clearly asked me if I had any financial records to back and support the idea that some funds from illegal sources went to DNC, went to Hilary Clinton", Veselnitskaya said. On Friday, a former Soviet counterintelligence officer confirmed to the Associated Press that he was also at the meeting.

"My son is a wonderful young man", the president said.

The June 9 meeting has become the focus of allegations that the Trump election campaign collaborated previous year with a covert effort by Moscow to turn voters away from Clinton.

And just think, "Trump the Dad" praised his son for being transparent.

Huckabee Sanders made the remarks Wednesday after about two dozen evangelical pastors and leaders prayed over President Trump in the Oval Office Monday.

President Donald Trump's campaign data and digital director says he will speak with the House intelligence committee later this month as part of its Russian Federation probe.

Mr. Trump, asked by Hannity whether you met with other Russians during the course of the campaign, you left the door pretty wide open: "I've probably met with other people from Russia, certainly not in the context of an actual, a formalized meeting or anything like that".
