The President's eldest son met with congressional investigators for more than five hours Thursday, but at least one member of the Senate judiciary committee is saying Trump Jr.'s interview is doing little to ease their concerns.
Among the new revelations during August, Trump Organization lawyer Michael Cohen told the House intelligence committee that he emailed the Kremlin in January 2016, during the presidential campaign, to seek help with a proposed Trump Tower project in Moscow.
Eight attendees at the June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower have been publicly identified, including Trump Jr. and Veselnitskaya; then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort; the president's son-in-law, Jared Kushner; Veselnitskaya's translator, Anatoli Samochornov; Ike Kaveladze, an American-based representative of a Russian real estate firm; Rob Goldstone, the intermediary who set up the meeting; and Rinat Akhmetshin, a Russian-American lobbyist.
"Love it", the younger Trump responded in setting up the meeting.
He claimed to have gotten "no meaningful information" from the meeting.
The lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, was at the time lobbying for the removal of USA sanctions on Russia; those sanctions had prompted Russian President Vladimir Putin to ban all American adoptions of Russian children in retaliation.
Trump has denied colluding with Russian interests during the campaign.
