Donald Trump Jr. Meeting Included Russian Lobbyist

Futerfas said Trump Jr knew nothing about the man's background at the time of the meeting. She said the Trump campaign would need to research it more, and after that Trump Jr. lost interest, according to Akhmetshin.

Akhmetshin said Veselnitskaya brought with her a plastic folder with printed-out documents and that he was unaware of its content or whether they had been provided by the Russian government.

Veselnitskaya told NBC News she went to argue for an easement to the Magnitsky Act, a USA bill that sanctioned several Russian officials connected with the 2009 death of lawyer Sergei Magnitsky.

Trump repeated that assertion in a talk with reporters Air Force One on his way to Paris Wednesday night.

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

Futerfas said he had talked with the individual who came to the meeting with Veselnitskaya: "He is a U.S. citizen".

In Washington, Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, sent a letter to the younger Trump asking him to testify about his June 2016 meeting with Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya.

But critics argue the problem is Donald Trump Junior was open to what emails promised would be information from a foreign government, created to influence the election.

The president's son has tried to discount the meeting, saying he did not receive the information he was promised.

Mr Trump was asked if he supported his son's offer to speak with Capitol Hill investigators looking into the issue.

Mr Goldstone emailed Mr Trump Jr to advise him that "two people" would attend the meeting to provide information that is "part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr Trump".
