Trump Approval Remains Steady As Conservatives Grow Frustrated With Russian Scandal

Trump Tower Meeting Who Was All There

Mr Caputo, who spent six months with the Trump campaign, came to know Russian government officials when he worked in Russia during the 1990s.

Trump, who has endured months of investigations in the USA about his aides' contacts with Russians during his run to the White House, said, "Nothing happened from the meeting, zero happened from the meeting, and, honestly, I think the press made a very big deal over something that really a lot of people will do".

The payment came nearly two weeks before Trump Jr. revealed that he met with a Russian lawyer in order to discuss damaging information on Hillary Clinton.

Finally, sources told CNN on Friday that there were at least eight people in the room at the meeting, including "a representative of the Russian family who had asked Goldstone to set up the meeting". "It is not illegal to receive information from someone, especially if you are engaged in an activity that's aimed at trying to secure understanding for policies that you plan to implement as a leader in the United States". But Veselnitskaya said the Trump campaign would need to research it more. "They were looking at each other, asking questions a few times and they had notebooks full of questions but they weren't getting the answers they were looking for", Caputo said to WBFO.

Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and current White House senior adviser, and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort also attended the meeting.

"It is totally bogus to suggest that somehow it was okay because they didn't actually obtain any useful information in it", Josh Earnest, former White House Secretary in the Obama administration, said.

Brad Parscale says in a statement to The Associated Press he's "unaware of any Russian involvement" in the data and digital operations of Trump's campaign. "He told me specifically he was not working for the Russian government, and in fact laughed when I asked him that question".

A company hired Caputo to improve the image of Russian President Vladimir Putin, a time Caputo describes as brief and relatively uneventful.

The Magnitsky Act reemerged as a front-burner topic this week in connection with the investigations surrounding President Trump's campaign and possible links to Russian meddling in last year's presidential race.

On Friday, Akhmetshin denied to The Washington Post that he was ever an intelligence agent but said he did serve two years in a Soviet military unit that handled counter-intelligence.

Trump campaign official Michael Caputo has said that he "never once" spoke to anyone about the possibility of receiving help from the Russian government to get Donald Trump elected. "And honestly, I think the press made a very big deal over something that really a lot of people would do", the president said.
