Goldstone Followed Up On Trump Tower Meet With Trump Aide, His Client

Goldstone Followed Up On Trump Tower Meet With Trump Aide, His Client

Testifying in a closed session before the House Intelligence Committee, Mr. Trump claimed that his conversation over the summer with his father, two days after The New York Times disclosed the June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower in Manhattan, was protected under attorney-client privilege because lawyers for both men were on the call.

That source also said Goldstone mentioned the idea at the end of the Trump Tower meeting, as everyone was leaving, though Goldstone continued to push this proposal in emails in the weeks following.

According to testimony filed with the Senate Judiciary Committee, Natalia Veselnitskaya, the attorney that met with Donald Trump, Jr.in June 2016, Trump Jr. was absolutely meeting with her in order to obtain dirt on Hillary Clinton. He has said that no damaging information was delivered.

After the email exchanges went public, younger and elder Donald Trump had a conversation regarding the meeting, according to Rep. Adam Schiff, who attended the Wednesday hearing.

"I don't believe you can shield communications between individuals merely by having an attorney present", he said, after the committee's lengthy interview with Trump Jr. Goldstone has said he puffed up the language of the original email invitation, the contents of which were dictated to him by Agalarov-whose father is close to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Paul Manafort, who was then the Trump campaign chairman, along with the President's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, also attended the meeting. Trump Jr. has said he did not follow up on the meeting.

"Because if it's not the flu , it's more likely some other viral infectious etiology and we can pass viral stuff pretty easy". He says the best way to avoid the flu is to get immunized with a flu shot .

It was at least the second time Trump Jr has testified to a congressional committee investigating any Russian meddling in the election and possible collusion with Moscow by the Trump campaign. None of the emails were sent directly to the president's son, and were sent between British publicist Rob Goldstone and then-campaign aide Dan Scavino, who is now the White House's social media director and assistant to President Donald Trump. Trump Jr. said he did not recall the exchanges, CNN reported, citing several unnamed sources.

As Schiff noted in his statement, it is critical to know exactly what Donald Trump knows about his son's secret meeting with the Russians during the campaign, and what they talked about after it took place. And, if so, what did he know about its goal prior to the time it occurred and what actually happened at that meeting? The White House has said the president was involved in drafting an early statement saying the meeting primarily concerned a Russian adoption program.

"He acknowledged discussing that matter with his father, but refused to answer questions about that discussion along the basis of a attorney-client privilege". As a general rule, of course, the privilege means that conversations between a client and his or her attorney are privileged and can not be revealed in Court or in any other proceeding of a legal nature such as a Congressional investigation.
