New information is coming out about a June 2016 meeting with President Donald Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr. - indicating there were more people in the room than initially reported.

"We need to uncover all of the possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian interference in our elections, which is a crime", Blumenthal, D-Conn., said in an interview.

During a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron on Thursday, Trump said that a ceasefire in Syria - which he agreed with Putin last week - was evidence that engagement works.

Republican Senator Chuck Grassley said he meant to send a letter to Trump Jr., summoning him for questioning, U.S. media outlet CNN said, and Trump Jr. may be called upon as early as next week. "Zero happened from the meeting, and honestly I think the press made a big deal over something that many people would do", he added.

Members of the Senate and House Intelligence Committees have also said they want to meet with Trump Jr., although neither panel has issued an official request.

Last weekend's revelation of the Trump Tower gathering would be the most tangible evidence of a connection between Trump's 2016 campaign and Russian Federation, a subject that has also prompted investigations by congressional committees and federal special counsel. "I want to keep that bipartisan", Ryan said.

Flying to Paris on Wednesday, Trump had what was initially billed as an off-the-record meeting with reporters. The President's son has tried to discount the meeting, saying he did not receive the information he was promised.

Democratic Senator Dick Durbin said Trump Jr. was wrong not to mention the presence of the Russian-American lobbyist when he acknowledged this week that the meeting took place. In messages from Goldstone to Trump Jr., Veselnitskaya was characterized as a "Russian government attorney", though she has denied connections to the Kremlin.

Natalia Veselnitskaya was granted special immigration parole in 2015 by then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch in order to defend her client in federal court in New York City, The Hill reported.

Sessions, who testified to Congress in June about his dealings with Russian officials, released a government form on Thursday dealing with contacts he has had with foreign nationals, including Russian government officials, but much of it was redacted.
