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

08 December 2017

Donald Trump Jr.is headed to the Senate Judiciary Committee today where behind closed doors, far from the ears of the American public, he's going to testify about his involvement in the possible collusion with Russian Federation that occurred during the Donald Trump campaign. Those emails made it clear that goal of the meeting was based on the claim that the Kremlin-linked lawyer could deliver damaging information about Hillary Clinton, a prospect that elicited a response from Trump Jr. that said: "Sounds great!" You know, as we were walking out, [Goldstone] said 'Listen, I'm sorry for that.

But e-mails released by Trump Jr. showed that he enthusiastically agreed to the sit-down with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya and others after he was promised dirt on Clinton.

"Mr Trump was cooperative at all times", Conaway said.

The conversations that Trump Jr. may have had with his father after the June 2016 meeting are of interest to investigators primarily due to the fact that the younger Trump went into this meeting on the presumption that the Russian lawyer he would be meeting with had connections to the Russian government and that the objective of the meeting was to discuss potentially damaging information about Hillary Clinton. He also told the committee he initially discussed a response with Hope Hicks, a top campaign aide now serving as White House communications director, according to a committee source.

Donald Trump Jr. cited attorney-client privilege as the reason he refused to answer lawmakers' questions about a meeting he had with his father, President Donald Trump. He added that even then, it would only apply if Trump Jr. and his father had the same attorney, which they reportedly do not.

The conversation between Trump Jr. and his father was about a meeting Trump Jr. had at Trump Tower in June 2016 with a Russian lawyerto get "dirt" on Hillary Clinton.

It cuts down on distracted driving by only offering a few options at a time, as opposed to an entire menu, Chamorro said. Applebee's , Dunkin' Donuts and Wingstop can handle takeout orders, and Starbucks will be available early next year.

Congressional investigators have uncovered emails that indicate parties involved in the June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower had subsequent communication after their summit, CNN reported Thursday. Trump Jr. met with members of the House intelligence committee from 10 a.m. until 5:55 p.m. on Wednesday, though the panel took breaks for votes during the day.

A source familiar with the matter says Goldstone did not talk about the meeting with Trump Jr. after they left Trump Tower.

Scott Balber, the attorney for Kaveladze, confirms his client received the email but viewed it as odd because hacking was never discussed in the meeting and it was not consistent with what was discussed. "Counsel made a claim of attorney-client privilege". Additionally, exactly what role did Trump play in drafting the statement that was initially released earlier this year that claimed, incorrectly, that the intent of the meeting had been to discuss the adoption of Russian orphans by American couples and the restrictions that had been placed on that program in the wake of the Russian takeover of Crimea?

In an email, Harvard constitutional law professor Laurence Tribe said he also found Trump Jr.'s invocation of attorney-client privilege to be "ridiculous".

"The general rule is that a conversation is *not* privileged if a third person is present for the conversation with an attorney and a client", Mariotti said.

This case for the special prosecutor's becoming a little bit more of a slam dunk with every new piece of information that emerges, because if they're able to confirm what this lawyer told the Senate Judiciary Committee, then there is no way in hell Donald Trump Jr. could possibly get away.
