  • Trump Jr. Refuses Lawmakers Questions About Conversations With Dad

Trump earlier this year, when asked if examining his and his family's finances unrelated to the Russian Federation probe would cross a red line, replied, "I would say yeah".

Trump Jr., like his father, denies collusion with Russian Federation. Trump Jr. said, "The pretext of the meeting was 'Hey I have information about your opponent.'" Shaking his head, Trump Jr. continued, "It was this 'Hey, some DNC donors may have done something in Russian Federation and they didn't pay taxes..."

The Senate Intelligence Committee is also expected to interview Trump Jr. soon, though a date has not been identified yet.

A lawyer for Goldstone declined to comment Tuesday. Much of the questioning will likely center around his now infamous meeting with a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower during the presidential campaign.

Donald Trump Jr.is set to testify Wednesday before the House Intelligence Committee in a closed-door session as lawmakers continue their investigation into Russian interference in last year's US elections. Agalarov allegedly proposed the meeting between Trump's son and Veselnitskaya, who had reportedly claimed that she had information aboutthe illegal activities of former Democratic Party presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

In a later email from Rob Goldstone to Donald Trump Jr., the subject line of which reads "Re: Russia - Clinton - private and confidential", Mr. Goldstone writes to Mr. Trump Jr.: "Let me know when you are free to talk with Emin by phone about this Hillary info - you had mentioned early this week so wanted to try to schedule a time and day".

A USA official with knowledge of Mueller's probe, according to Reuters, said one reason for the subpoenas was to find out whether the bank may have sold some of Trump's mortgage or other loans to Russian state development bank VEB or other Russian banks that now are under us and European Union sanctions. She adds that the younger Trump lost interest in the meeting after she said she did not have dirt on Clinton - backing up what Trump has previously said. The Magnitsky Act later banned the adoption of Russian children by Americans in 2012.

They're also interested in messages Trump Jr. exchanged with WikiLeaks, the website that leaked emails from top Democratic officials during the campaign.

Trump tweeted screenshots of the exchanges with WikiLeaks over Twitter's direct message system after initial reports of his communications with WikiLeaks surfaced.

The voluntary appearance will be Trump Jr.'s first face-to-face meeting with Congress since Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation leveled charges against four associates of President Donald Trump, including former national security adviser Michael Flynn and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

The report comes less than a month after the publicist, Rob Goldstone, said in an interview with The Sunday Times that he was "keen to talk" with special counsel Robert Mueller's team, which is investigating possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

The subpoenas concern "people or entities affiliated with President Donald Trump, according to a person briefed on the matter", the Wall Street Journal reported in an update to its story. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., on Tuesday asked Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, to subpoena Trump Jr. for public testimony, saying he has failed to fully comply with the panel's subsequent document requests. "I think this is another example of the media going too far, too fast and we don't see it going in that direction".

However, according to the German financial newspaper Handelsblatt, Deutsche Bank did receive a subpoena from Robert Mueller several weeks ago requesting information about the president's financial accounts.
