Trump Tower Meeting Who Was All There

US President Donald Trump is an open person who can listen and respond to his interlocutor's arguments, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Friday.

Akhmetshin has been working with Veselnitskaya on promoting an anti-Magnitsky propaganda documentary, which had a screening in Washington, D.C., just days after the meeting with the Trump campaign.

Akhmetshin at the time was lobbying against USA sanctions on Russian Federation for human rights violations.

By Friday, news outlets were reporting there were eight people, Trump Jr. included, who went to the meeting. In fact, he was dressed in jeans and a T-shirt when Veselnitskaya told him that she had a meeting scheduled and asked him to come along.

The disclosures do not say who Futerfas was hired to represent.

Mr Akhmetshin said the discussion was billed as part of a Russian government effort to help Mr Trump during the election campaign.

Krauthammer, a Fox News contributor, wrote that he has always been a skeptic of charges of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, but that he was "open to empirical evidence".

He has also suggested that "most people would have taken that meeting" and claimed the Russian Federation investigation is the "greatest witch hunt in political history".

Regarding the substance, Akhmetshin said that in the course of her work for clients, Veselnitskaya had discovered that a United States hedge fund which "seemed linked to the (Democratic National Committee)" was operating in violation of Russian tax and securities law. Russian Federation denies the allegations, and Trump says there was no collusion.

Browder filed a formal complaint to the Department of Justice in July 2016, accusing Akhmetshin of failing to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act while lobbying for Russian interests.

"Just because I was born in Russian Federation doesn't mean I am an agent of [the] Kremlin", he told Politico recently.

The leader of the Republican majority in the House of Representatives, Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, urged Trump Jr.to honor Grassley's request that he testify.

Trump Jr. said Monday that he'd be happy to talk about all of this with the Senate Intelligence Committee.

According to tweets published by Trump Jr. earlier this week, Goldstone sent him an email pointing to "a Russian government attorney" as the source of potential information that could damage Clinton.

The latest revelation adds another shift to the tale that has sparked questions over the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation.

Accusations by U.S. intelligence agencies that Moscow meddled in the election and colluded with the Trump campaign have dominated the Republican president's first months in office.
