Donald Trump Jr testified before senators that he “could not remember” if he told his father about the controversial meeting at Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer.
The president’s eldest son told members of congress he did not think there was anything wrong with meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, who he had been told had “damaging material” about Hillary Clinton.
“I didn’t think that listening to someone with information relevant to the fitness and character of a presidential candidate would be an issue, no,” he said.
Trump implies he had dirt on Clinton same day as Trump Jr’s Russia meeting
Reuters reported that according to 2,500 pages of testimony released by the Senate Judiciary Committee, Mr Trump Jr frequently deflected questions during the interview last year, saying he also could not recall whether he spoke with his father on the day the June 2016 meeting took place.
