"I think what we are learning with the Trump Jr. meeting is when you met with any Russians, you are meeting with Russian intelligence, and therefore President Putin".

But, he said, once Manafort comes before the committee he is subject to any line of questioning, including that of his involvement in the June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower, which he attended.

Both Trump Jr. and the White House have played down the importance of the meeting, with President Donald Trump telling reporters in Paris, France Thursday that most people in politics would have taken the meeting.

In addition, White House deputy adviser Sebastian Gorka has also been sparring with cable TV hosts this week over the meeting, slamming the reports as "fake news".

News reported that the Russian-born former Soviet counterintelligence officer served in the Soviet military before emigrating to the United States.

"This is everything. This is everything", Trump Jr. responded.

The evidence of intended collusion means we can now retire the notion that the Russian Federation investigation is merely "frivolous partisan harassment", agrees National Review.

Indeed, in a July 2016 interview with CNN, you called suggestions that Russians were behind the hacking of Democratic National Committee emails "disgusting" and "phony", adding, "I can't think of bigger lies, but that exactly goes to show you what the DNC and what the Clinton camp will do".

For DNR, the company now has $1.75 Million of cash on the books, which is offset by $83.7 Million current liabilities. According to Thomson Reuters, sell-side analysts are predicting a consensus target price of $15.00 on company stock.

The emails and meeting are the first clear indication that members of Trump's team were at least willing to entertain Russian help during the campaign.

Since he was elected, President Trump has been dogged by allegations that Russian Federation tried to sabotage Mrs Clinton's campaign to help him win.

NBC News said the lobbyist "denies any current ties to Russian spy agencies".

However, whatever happened in the meeting does not diminish the significance of what Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, and Manafort were hoping to achieve in the meeting, described in the emails as "obviously very high level and sensitive information" that "is part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump".

She added: "I am telling you that Obama never took Russian Federation seriously and that is why this woman somehow ended up in the country".

Then on Tuesday morning the Times published the text of publicist Rob Goldstone's email: "This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump".

Senator Chuck Grassley said he wants Mr Trump Jr to testify "pretty soon" and it could be as early as next week.

The release prompted the President to leap to his son's defense, lauding him as a "high high-quality person and I applaud his transparency", according to a White House statement quoted by Reuters.
