President Trump Russia Update

15 July 2017

In March, Grassley, an Iowa Republican, filed a complaint with the U.S. Justice Department alleging collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians involved with the fight against the human rights sanctions on Russia. He lived years ago in Russia, and worked for the Russian-owned Gazprom Media after returning to the United States. When the news of this story broke this morning, I attempted to reach him via email, phone and text. But separately, Kelly, you know, as this Russian Federation issue becomes more encompassing for this White House, we learned today that President Trump is bringing in a veteran Washington lawyer, Ty Cobb, to manage sort of the overall legal and media response to the various Russian Federation investigations. Meanwhile, one of Kushner's top lawyers is stepping aside from the Russian Federation investigation.

Brad Parscale said he is "unaware of any Russian involvement" in the digital section of Trump's campaign, but added that he agreed to the interview with the committee and to "sharing with them everything I know". Veselnitskaya denies the meeting had anything to do with information she might have about 2016 Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton or that it was coordinated with the Russian government.

Trump Jr. has dismissed the meeting as "a nothing" that led "nowhere".

Emily Stewart, Politics reporter for The Street, talks about the effect of new details of the meeting between senior Trump campaign officials and Russians in 2016. He denied those allegations in court. That person, who confirmed he was in the meeting, is described as having ties to Russian intelligence.

Pelosi has previously called on Speaker of the House Paul Ryan to hold a vote on whether to establish an independent commission to examine Russian interference in the 2016 election.

"We will expose House Republicans' inaction for their willful, shameful enabling", Pelosi said Friday.

The second major revelation so far on Friday was the Associated Press confirming that Rinat Akhmetshin attended the June 9th meeting inside Trump Tower.

Donald Trump Jr. did not disclose Akhmetshin's presence in statements and emails he released on the meeting earlier this week.

Finally, the emails show that the USA president's eldest son was enthusiastic about the idea that he could get some dirt on Hillary Clinton from the Russians.

"If it's what you say I love it", Trump Jr said about the offer in an email to entertainment promoter Rob Goldstone, the person arranging the meeting.

Grassley said no questions would be off limits as the panel investigates what the US intelligence community has concluded was Moscow's election interference, personally directed by Russian President Vladimir Putin, into the 2016 USA election.

He said he showed up with her at the Manhattan skyscraper wearing jeans and a T-shirt.
