           White House Insists Trump Is In Great Health And He’ll Get A Physical To Prove It!

It was at least the second time Trump Jr has testified to a congressional committee investigating any Russian meddling in the election and possible collusion with Moscow by the Trump campaign.

As CNN reports, the timeline presented by these emails contradicts Trump Jr.'s assertion that after the promised "dirt" on Hillary Clinton was not delivered by the Russians in attendance at the June 2016 meeting, they had no more contact.

Trump Jr. cited attorney-client privilege when the House Intelligence Committee grilled him behind closed doors about the conversation, the committee's top Democrat, Rep. Adam Schiff of California, told reporters after the session.

The Washington Post reports Trump Jr. only issued the "adoptions" explanation to the New York Times after his own father dictated he say the meeting was about adoptions.

It is also very convenient for Trump Jr. because the questions surrounding who knew what and when about the June 9 meeting are a central part of the investigation into collusion between the campaign and Russian Federation.

Mueller has also shown interest in the White House response to the meeting once it became public. He said the President, according to the sources, was debating between a longer and a shorter statement while Trump and Hicks were aboard Air Force One.

Goldstone was thrust into the middle of the Trump-Russia story earlier this year when the Trump Tower meeting of Trump Jr.; Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner; former campaign chairman Paul Manafort; and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya was revealed.

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.

Goldstone set up the meeting on behalf of his client, Russian pop star Emin Agalarov, whose father, Aras, is a Russian real estate mogul with ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Those emails made it clear that objective 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!"

Mr. Schiff said that he believed the contents of the phone call should not be kept secret simply because lawyers participated in it.

Just days after the meeting, Goldstone apparently forwarded a message to Kaveladze referencing a report about Russia's breach of the Democratic National Committee. "In this instance, both Trump and Trump Jr. are subjects of the same investigation and any legal advice they received on these topics would potentially implicate the other person". "There is no attorney client privilege that protects discussion between father and son", Schiff noted.

Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas, one of the Republicans leading the probe, said the interview was "professional" and described Trump Jr.as "cooperative at all times".
