GOP Rep. Bill Flores has some words of advice for Donald Trump

Hours later, Donald Trump stood on the stage to launch his general-election race against Hillary Clinton with a big promise: "I am going to give a major speech".

A New York Times report suggested that accompanying Donald Jr.in the meeting with a Russian lawyer in the run-up to last year's USA presidential election were Kushner, and Trump's then-campaign chairman, Paul Manafort.

"This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump", Goldstone, who represents the son of an Azerbaijani-Russian businessman close to Russian government, wrote in the email to Trump Jr.

Futerfas told NBC that he spoke with the "friend", but it is not clear if that person is the same one who US officials suspect could have ties to Russian intelligence.

The reporter repeatedly asked Trump about his interaction with Putin regarding the Russian government's role in the U.S. election meddling.

Akhmetshin added that he had not been contacted by the special counsel's office or the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the meeting with Trump Jr., but said he is willing to talk to investigators.

The meeting was also attended by Trump son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

We don't get to sound the "New Quentin Tarantino Movie" klaxon all that often, so it's always a big deal when it blares out. Manson and his followers would eventually be sentenced to life in prison for their roles in that and several other murders.


"NBC News is not naming the lobbyist, who denies any current ties to Russian spy agencies. Me: strong military, strong borders - but he cares less about the borders - but strong military, tremendous", Trump said. Congressional committees and a special counsel appointed by the Justice Department are looking into Russian attempts to influence the 2016 election and whether the Trump campaign coordinated with the Kremlin.

The White House had no immediate comment about the NBC News report.

Four White House officials and two outside advisers say Kushner wants the White House to more aggressively push out surrogates and talking points to change the narrative around the latest twist in the Russian Federation scandal.

Lawmakers from both parties have called on Trump Jr.to testify about the meeting. He accepted the meeting on the premise that he would be offered damaging information about Hillary Clinton.

The recent revelation of Donald Trump Jr.'s 2016 meeting with a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer is causing headaches for the Trump administration.

The president's son has tried to discount the meeting, saying he did not receive the information he was promised.

"This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump", Goldstone added. If this was a significant meeting, they would have gone in there and erased those emails.
