Committee Chair Requests Donald Trump Jr. Testify On Capitol Hill

Grassley declined to comment on whether he thought there was anything criminal in Trump Jr.'s meeting with Veselnitskaya.

The exchange showed Trump Jr. conversing with a music publicist named Rob Goldstone, who wanted him to meet with a "Russian government attorney" who supposedly had dirt on Clinton as "part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump".

A letter signed by all 17 Democratic members of the House Judiciary Committee requests that the Justice Department say whether or not Veselnitskaya had any involvement in the settlement and explain why the case settled for less than $6 million.

The lawyer in June 2016 had promised damaging information from the Russian government about Democrat Hillary Clinton to help his father's campaign.

The friend said she could offer information about Clinton as "part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump", according to emails released Tuesday by Trump Jr.

He's a well-known Washington presence, lobbying for Russian interests trying to undermine the allegations of a lawyer who died in a Russian prison and is the namesake of a US sanctions law.

Neither Warner nor Intelligence Committee chairman Richard Burr have confirmed that they have or will ask Trump testify.

Former US Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who served in President Barack Obama's administration, is backing away from accusations she had a hand in allowing Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, who is at the center of Donald Trump Jr.'s email scandal, into the US.

Accusations Moscow meddled in the election and colluded with the Trump campaign have dominated Trump's first months in office.

Beyoncé's major windfall this year came from her Formation World Tour , which clocked in at $54.7 million, according to Forbes . Guns N Roses brought in most of their $42.3 million from their long-awaited reunion tour which they have extended into 2017.

Trump Jr. released emails this week from 2016 in which he appeared eager to accept information from the Russian government that could have damaged Hillary Clinton's campaign.

"In retrospect I probably would have done things a little differently", Trump Jr. said.

'I think it would be a dereliction of duty not to give it an honest look, ' he said.

"I said, 'Did you do it?' And he said, 'No, I did not".

The revelation adds a new layer to the meeting, which has drawn the attention of congressional and possibly federal investigators.

Veselnitskaya brought with her a plastic folder with printed-out documents that detailed what she believed was the flow of illicit funds to the Democrats, Akhmetshin said.

"My son is a high-quality person and I applaud his transparency", President Trump said Tuesday.

Panel members will be free to ask "anything they want to ask", Grassley said Thursday. When that denial collapses, then comes a dismissal: Nothing really happened, it didn't mean anything, it's all just "a nothing burger", in the flippant words of Trump chief of staff Reince Priebus.

Kushner, the president's senior adviser and Jewish son-in-law, oversaw the Trump campaign's successful digital operation throughout 2016.
