Russian Federation favored Trump in 2016, Senate panel says, breaking with House GOP

Senate Intel Panel Agrees Russia Intervened In 2016 Presidential Election

Trump Jr. repeatedly told the Senate panel that he doesn't recall, including whether the Russian lawyer offered him documents at the Trump Tower meeting or whether he ever discussed the Russia probe with his father.

Trump Jr. has previously acknowledged he met with Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya - and said she claimed to have damaging information about Clinton that could help Trump's campaign.

The two, plus a handful of others from the Trump campaign (including the president's son-in-law Jared Kushner) met with the lawyer at Trump Tower in NY. He has since been indicted as part of the special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation on charges related to money laundering, tax fraud, and violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

According to the Hill, Schumer maintained the decision to release the transcripts of interviews with Trump Jr. and others at the meeting was a "perfunctory move, apparently meant to signal the end of the committee's on-again, off-again halting investigation".

2 dead in CT , thousands without power after storms strike
In Pennsylvania, a man was also killed as a result of the storm after a tree fell on a auto in the Poconos, WNEP-TV reported. In Connecticut, the state's two major utilities reported 90,000 without electricity, most in the western part of the state.

Mr Goldstone said his client Emin Agalarov, Azerbaijan's biggest pop star and son of Russian billionaire Aras Agalarov, pressured him into setting up the meeting with Mr Trump Jr - even after Mr Goldstone said it was "a really bad idea". Trump Jr., however, knew nothing about the USA sanctions on Russian Federation going into the meeting. Based on the first-take news accounts, however, I'm going to go out on a limb and say I infer there is nothing in them to refute President Trump's denial of "collusion" in purported Russian efforts to assist in his election. "Every person." Its conclusion would seem to be self-evident given, among other things, the hacking and releasing of emails from the Democratic National Committee and Clinton's campaign chairman John Podesta, and offers of assistance to only the Trump camp.

Additional reporting from Newsy affiliate CNN. Both Manafort and Kushner were present at the meeting but were not interviewed by the committee.

Donald Trump Jr received a call from a blocked number on 6 June, three days before the meeting.

Manafort's notes also contain references to "tied into Cheney" and "active sponsors of RNC" without any further explanation. "You just have to get the meeting", Goldstone, a British citizen, testified.

APPLE IS RUNNING more than 50 autonomous cars around California, the state's Department of Motor Vehicles has told Mac Reports . Chief Executive Officer at Apple, Tim Cook called self-driving a core technology that we view as very important.

"I appreciate the opportunity to have assisted the Judiciary Committee in its inquiry", Trump jnr said on Wednesday in a statement released by a spokesman. The statement described the meeting as being about Russian adoption but left out that Trump Jr. had been told it was part of a Russian government effort to aid the campaign. And I gave the reason for that being that I am a music publicist.

"Until that day, I'd never heard of the Magnitsky Act and had no familiarity with this issue".

Two questions about the Trump Tower meeting were included on a leaked list of questions that Mueller wants to ask Trump if he ultimately agrees to sit for an interview. Simpson added that it was "a common structure, both partially for tax reasons but also to have entities outside of Russian Federation, you know, managing specific investments".

"I work in music and it's FULL of Liberals and I am seen as some weird link to the kremlin". Goldstone wrote. "And because I am not able to respond out of courtesy to you and your father".
