Russian Federation lobbyist attended Trump son's meeting

Warner has said he wants Trump Jr. and Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, to testify at the intelligence committee.

The Kremlin-connected lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr. brought documents that detailed her claims about illicit cash funneled to the Democratic National Committee, according to an ex-Russian spy who was also at the meeting.

Trump Jr. said that he had accepted the meeting because he believed the potentially damaging information on a political opponent could be useful during the campaign. But new "explosive emails" show that his son welcomed a purported Russian government effort to help his father's presidential campaign.

In the report, author Michael Steele, a former British intelligence agent, used primarily Russian sources linked to the Kremlin, such as senior Russian officials and intelligence officers.

Akhmetshin has been accused of running an anti-Magnitsky Act campaign, which included a film screening previous year at the Newseum in Washington, D.C.

Veselnitskaya acknowledged in an exclusive interview that she was accompanied by at least one other man, whom she would not identify, NBC said.

He then told The New York Times in March that he did have meetings with Russians, but there were "certainly none" where he "was representing the campaign in any way, shape or form".

Responding to the allegation that Putin favoured him over Clinton in presidential election, Trump said he would directly pose this question to the Russian president when he meets him next time.

On Monday, Trump Jr. released an email chain of his conversations leading up to the meeting with Veselnitskaya.

Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the committee, has called for Trump Jr.to testify as early as next week. See the transcript of Trump's talk with reporters.

He was characterized as an associate of Emin Agalarov, Goldstone's pop-star client and son of oligarch Aras Agalarov. "And honestly, I think the press made a very big deal out of something that really a lot of people would do". Her parole was supposed to expire in January 2016, months before she met with Trump Jr., and it's unclear how or why she remained in the country beyond that.

Flores comments are significant because he hails from the President's own party, but plenty of Democrats also are calling out Trump's children in the wake of the Trump Jr. revelations.

The president's eldest son defended his actions in an interview with Fox News' "Hannity" Tuesday night, blaming the decision to take the meeting on the "million miles per hour" pace of a presidential campaign and his suspicion that Veselnitskaya might have information about "underreported" scandals involving Clinton.
