Trump Jr met Russian lawyer who promised Clinton information


US President Donald Trump’s son has admitted meeting a Russian lawyer last year who he says had promised damaging information on Hillary Clinton.

But Donald Trump Jr said that Natalia Veselnitskaya had given no “meaningful” material on the presidential candidate.

Also at the meeting, first reported in the New York Times, were the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and then-campaign head Paul J Manafort.

US officials are investigating alleged Russian meddling in the US election.

The FBI and Congress are both looking at whether Trump campaign officials colluded with an alleged Kremlin plot to undermine Mrs Clinton’s campaign. The inquiries have yet to show evidence of collusion.

The meeting with Ms Veselnitskaya, said to have links to the Kremlin, took place on 9 June 2016 at New York’s Trump Tower, just two weeks after Donald Trump secured the Republican nomination.

It is thought to be the first confirmed private meeting between a Russian national and a member of President Trump’s inner circle.
