The Hill: Trump Jr. Pitch Was Part of Broad Russian Effort

The Magnitsky Act, passed with bipartisan support in 2012, froze US assets of Russians purportedly involved in the detention and suspicious death of whistle-blowing attorney Sergei Magnitsky in a Russian prison in 2009.

Mark Warner said the committee requested the documents "as recently as this week", after President Donald Trump's son released emails in which he appeared eager to accept Russian government information that could damage Hillary Clinton's campaign.

According to emails published by Donald Trump Jr., Veselnitskaya had evidence of Clinton wrongdoing that she was offering on behalf of the Kremlin as "part of Russian Federation and its government support for Mr. Trump". And I said, "Sure, I'd be willing to look at it",' Rohrabacher said.

But the President's lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, who is designated to handle personal legal issues, was not traveling with the President and was largely uninvolved, according to the people familiar with the matter. But they did not list the June 2016 meeting with the Russian lawyer.

It also imposes sanctions on Russians convicted of human rights abuses or cyber attacks and would allow new sanctions on Russian mining, metals, shipping and railways.

The measure accuses Trump of obstruction of justice and seeking to "use his authority to hinder and cause the termination" of an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, including "through threatening, and then terminating, James Comey".

Magnitsky was killed in prison after uncovering a $230 million fraud perpetrated by corrupt Russian officials. He had not been previously identified as a participant in the meeting at Trump Tower in NY, which was billed as part of a Russian government effort to help the Republican's White House campaign. Trump Jr. went on to say, "I can't think of bigger lies, but that exactly goes to show you what the DNC and what the Clinton camp will do. It's called opposition research, or even research into your opponent", Mr Trump said. That would have been the wrong thing to do.

Following the bombshell revelations, Trump Jr. tweeted four pages of emails indicating he was clearly told that Russian Federation was supporting his dad's campaign.

Liverpool accept bid for Lucas
Despite being at Liverpool for ten years, rarely has a summer gone by where he has not been linked with a move away from the club. The 30-year-old has been a mainstay in the Reds midfield over this period, but things have changed drastically this season.

Sanders said during the briefing that the President and vice president had spoken on Tuesday, the day Trump Jr. disclosed emails related to the meeting, but could not say if the topic of Trump Jr. was broached.

In one of the emails, publicist Rob Goldstone said the "Crown prosecutor of Russia" was offering "to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russian Federation and would be very useful to your father".

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Friday that he hoped for further dialogue with his US counterpart Donald Trump after their meeting in Hamburg earlier this month on the fringes of the G20 summit.

United States president Donald Trump has defended his son's meeting with a Russian lawyer, saying it was standard campaign practice and maintaining "nothing happened" as a result.

Veselnitskaya also attended a dinner with Rohrabacher as well as other guests.

"There was a dinner at the Capitol Hill Club here with about 20 people", Rohrabacher said, per The Hill. They want to know if there was any contact between members of the Trump administration or campaign and the Department of Justice or the Russian attorney about the case. But that wasn't just the topic.

"The W.H.is functioning perfectly, focused on HealthCare, Tax Cuts/Reform & many other things", he wrote. "But I understand she was at the table".
