Russian Lawyer Who Met Trump Jr. Ready To Testify To Congress

Donald Trump's son and son-in-law to appear before Senate committees next week

US President Donald Trump's eldest son, son-in-law and ex-campaign manager are to testify before the Senate on alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

The amateurish meeting suggests it was a rooky private play, perhaps planned with the intention of pleasing the Kremlin, were anything to come of it.

Meanwhile, the president said he would not have named Jeff Sessions as attorney general if had he known he would recuse himself from the inquiry.

Here are some key numbers from the nascent Trump presidency, as compiled by several USA news media outlets. Trump also told them, "I faced great pressure because of Russian Federation".

Mr Trump Jr and Mr Manafort have been called to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee next Wednesday.

Kushner is expected to answer the committee's questions and not invoke his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination, according to a person familiar with Kushner's thinking.

The hearings will be the most high-profile since sacked Federal Bureau of Investigation head James Comey gave testimony in June. Trump Jr. was purportedly eager to receive information that could damage Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign. Citing "a source who knows the family well", People noted that Trump Jr. admitting he would have handled the meeting differently is not something typically heard from a Trump family member.

The informal meeting, which reportedly lasted as long as an hour, involved the Kremlin's interpreter, and was not disclosed by the United States government, aroused the attention of other leaders, who reportedly thought it unusual that an American president would pay special attention to the Russian leader. Besides English and her native Slovenian, the first lady says she speaks Serbian, French, and German. No one in the Trump delegation sought to disclose this in all the press briefings and interviews.

The attorney general recused himself from overseeing the Justice Department's Russian Federation investigation in March, after failing to disclose at his confirmation hearing at the Senate that he had met Russia's ambassador to the US. But we're now in a situation in which the president, his most trusted adviser/daughter's husband and his own son who is running his business are all in Mueller's sights.

"If I was in the Kremlin, my recommendation to Putin would be, 'See if you can get this guy alone, ' and that's what it sounds like he was able to do", added Mr. Pifer, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution in Washington. Dean Heller, who is vulnerable in next year's midterm elections, Trump remarked: "He wants to remain a senator, doesn't he?" But let's not forget the administration's immediate efforts after taking office to roll back Russia sanctions, its current foot-dragging over new sanctions, Trump's sharing of code-word intelligence information with Russian officials in the Oval Office and now this unsupervised confab in Hamburg that no one thought to bring up until now.
