United States senate committee agrees Russian Federation backed Donald Trump against Hillary Clinton

Senate Dems say documents suggest Russia funneled money to NRA group to boost Trump campaign

They called it "the gorilla in the room".

"The Russian effort was extensive, sophisticated, and ordered by President Putin himself for the objective of helping Donald Trump and hurting Hillary Clinton", Warner continued.

The voluminous testimony and exhibits pertaining to the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting - including 224 pages of Donald J. Trump Jr.'s testimony from September 7, 2017 - tell us much about two key prongs of interest in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Veselnitskaya began her presentation again, delivering it nearly word for word the way she did the first time, according to Goldstone, who told the Senate committee that this seemed to infuriate Kushner more. The Committee's staff interviews reveal that top Trump campaign officials were frustrated and angry that the meeting did not produce enough damaging information on their opponent.

QUESTION: So, returning to the meeting, what did Mr. Kushner do during the meeting? "There is no doubt that Russian Federation undertook an unprecedented effort to interfere with out 2016 elections". Mark Warner, a Democrat from Virginia who serves as the committee's vice chair, who echoed Burr's sentiments.

The investigation of interference of Moscow in legislative chambers has been developed in parallel with one initiated nearly a year ago by special prosecutor Robert Mueller, and which tries to clarify if re was said Conchabanza between Kremlin and circle of Trump.

Lawmakers on that committee said they agreed that Putin had wanted to hurt Clinton, but did not agree that meant he wanted to help Trump.

He has praised Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sissi, Thailand Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-o-cha, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, among others. "He wants to extend an invitation to Mr. Trump to visit him in the Kremlin before the election".

"He has this odd fascination not only with the strongmen, but the nearly retro male chauvinist culture that they have still in Russian Federation", said Ms Evelyn Farkas, a former deputy assistant secretary of defence for Russian Federation in the Obama administration. The only possibility, then, is Mac Miller's "Donald Trump", which Trump himself publicly praised.

That testimony falls squarely within the campaign finance law statutes and at least suggests that there was a willingness on the part of Trump Jr.to engage in preliminary discussions "regarding the acceptance of such information, which could be considered a "thing of value" under the law".

"To do anything in Russian Federation requires Putin to be on your side", he said. There were some other people also with him.

QUESTION: Was Mr. Kushner present for the entire meeting? We now know that - despite her early denials of ties to Putin - Veselnitskaya is, in fact, a Russian informant. "I've just sat in a meeting about adoption".

The proposed statement read: "As the person who arranged the meeting, I can definitely state that the statements I have read by Donald Trump Jr. are 100 percent accurate".

"Donald came here to Russian Federation when he was not even nominated", Mr Putin told Ms Megyn Kelly of NBC News. Politics, I knew nothing about. "I learned about it only afterwards, when I was told that as it turned out he had been to Russian Federation".

Other attendees of the meeting provided a very different account of Kushner's role, however, according to transcripts of interviews released by the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday.

That is when "it first reared its ugly head", he recalled. Goldstone was told he needed to secure the June 2016 meeting with a "well-connected" Russian lawyer who was prepared to pass along "damaging material" to the Trump family. "This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump-helped along by Aras and Emin", Goldstone wrote.

QUESTION: And do you recall at all whether he stayed for that entire part of her presentation that had to do with the Ziff Brothers and the tax fraud?

The newly released documents include testimony from five of the people who were there on June 9, 2016: Trump, Jr.; Goldstone; Irakly (Ike) Kaveladze, the employee of the Agalarovs; Rinat Akhmetshin, the consultant; and Anatoli Samochornov, the interpreter for Veselnitskaya.

Sawyer asked Trump, Jr.

Within a few days, a meeting was scheduled in Trump Tower with the high command of the Trump campaign. I had no idea who was with him. For example, Trump Jr. "He goes, 'Weak. We need a strong leader'". Trump still did not travel to Moscow, and a meeting between Trump and Putin did not occur. Lots of time later, I learnt that it had been Paul Manafort, the election campaign manager. Then, in 2015, Trump was invited to the elder Agalarov's 60th birthday party in Moscow.

He spent that evening in NY, at NBC's Rockefeller Centre studios as the guest host of Saturday Night Live.
