Congressional investigators discover more emails related to infamous Trump Jr. meeting

Trump to receive routine medical exam next year, White House says

He entered and exited the House Intelligence Committee hearing from a back door, avoiding the media, and nothing was immediately released about the discussions.

According to the ranking Democrat on the committee, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), Trump Jr.'s rationale for invoking attorney-client privilege is that a lawyer was in the room when he communicated with his father about how to respond to a bombshell Times reporting detailing how he and other top Trump campaign officials met with a Russian lawyer in Trump Tower in June 2016.

"We will be following up with his counsel", Schiff said.

"Today, I understand why it took place to begin with and why it ended so quickly with a feeling of mutual disappointment and time wasted", she wrote of the meeting, according to NBC.

Once it became apparent that she did not have meaningful information about Clinton, Trump seemed to lose interest, Veselnitskaya said, and the meeting petered out. That Kremlin-connected attorney - we now know - promised team Trump unflattering information about Hillary Clinton.

The pair were randomly selected to play against each other on the Facebook game, and then played over 300 games together. A man named Spencer, who is from Harlem and in his 20s, met a woman named Roz who is in her 80s and lives in Florida.

Trump Jr. told the committee that he did not speak to the president directly in July 2017 as the New York Times prepared to report his meeting with the Russian lawyer for the first time.

Sources said Trump Jr. told investigators he spoke with his father after reports surfaced about his controversial Trump Tower meeting with a Russian lawyer promising dirt on Hillary Clinton. Additionally, exactly what role did Trump play in drafting the statement that was initially released earlier this year that claimed, incorrectly, that the intent of the meeting had been to discuss the adoption of Russian orphans by American couples and the restrictions that had been placed on that program in the wake of the Russian takeover of Crimea? In my view, this is a central communication about a very pivotal meeting and a conversation between father and son is not subject to the attorney-client privilege.

No, he can't. It wasn't even his attorney, it was one of Trump's attorneys. Richard Painter, a University of Minnesota law professor who previously served as chief ethics counsel to President George W. Bush, told ThinkProgress that the privilege "only covers a conversation that is undertaken for the objective of getting legal advice".

"The general rule is that a conversation is *not* privileged if a third person is present for the conversation with an attorney and a client", Mariotti said. The court would then be called upon to consider whether or not the conversation at issue fell within the boundaries of what is covered by the privilege and, if it does, then the content of those conversations could not be compelled. "Counsel made a claim of attorney-client privilege". In this case, it doesn't necessarily matter if it was attempted or if it came to fruition.
