Trump Jr. admits meeting Russian lawyer for information against Clinton

The eldest son of US President Donald Trump told Senate investigators on Thursday that he arranged a meeting in June 2016 with a Russian lawyer because she might tell him information that would harm the rivalry of his father, Democrat Hillary Clinton, The New York Times reported.

Donald Trump Jr., in a prepared statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee investigators, said it was important to know how Clinton “qualified” to be president.

Trump Jr. “told (the investigators) that the meeting at the Trump Tower did not result in anything and insisted that he had not complied at all with the Russian government’s campaign to disrupt the presidential election last year,” the newspaper said.
