Donald Trump Jr. speaks to supporters during a rally in March 2016.

Akhmetshin denied any connection to Russian intelligence.

Bolling said, "Instead of pointing the finger at Donald Trump Jr. and saying maybe he's colluding - a big word, colluding with the Russians - maybe the Russians were colluding with Hillary Clinton to get information on Donald Trump". He says he was drafted into the military, like most young Soviet citizens, at age 18.

Akhmetshin, who became a US citizen in 2009 and retains his Russian citizenship, has lobbied against USA sanctions on Russia for human rights violations, the result of a US law known as the Magnitsky Act.

At the same time, the President's council have come out to say that there was nothing illegal about holding the meeting.

Trump's re-election campaign, Futerfas and a spokesman for Trump Jr. have not returned calls from CNN seeking an explanation about the payment, which The Daily Beast first reported. As Vox noted, the evidence came in an chain of correspondence with Rob Goldstone, a British publicist who set up the meeting between Trump Jr. and lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya on behalf of Russian oligarchs Emin and Aras Agalarov.

No Respite for Tripura From Rail-Road Blockade, IPFT To Continue Agitation
The IPFT is of the opinion that the state should communicate with the Centre regarding their demand and fulfill it accordingly. The agitation which entered its seventh day on Sunday has affected the supply of essentials, including food grain and fuel.


Conway also maintained that Clinton is "one of the only people" who firmly believes in collusion between Trump's campaign and the Russian government. Cobb has known Mueller for years, as has Dowd, a former USA attorney who in private practice handled cases related to the Justice Department.

As for whether there were other emails yet to be uncovered, Sekulow, who does not represent Trump Jr., said, "I've not reviewed any other documents". Finally, under pressure from The Times, which had obtained email correspondence, Trump Jr. was compelled to release emails that revealed he had told an associate that he would "love" Russia's help in obtaining incriminating information about Clinton.

"You know, when I needed negative information about Hillary Clinton, I didn't have to go very far", she said during the interview. Fox News has gone beyond calling the Russian Federation scandal a hoax is now blaming Hillary Clinton for what the Trump campaign is accused of doing.

"This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump", the initial email read.

On Thursday, President Trump defended his eldest son's attendance at the Trump Tower meeting.
