"I think it will conclude when we conclude that we've uncovered all of the evidence of potential compromises at the Department of Justice", Blumenthal said.

The committee withdrew the subpoenas after the two agreed to be interviewed privately by staff. On this date, Trump Jr. receives an email from Goldstone, who wrote that Emin Agalarov-a Russian pop star whose father, Aras, worked with Donald Trump to bring the Miss Universe pageant to Moscow in 2013-had asked him to reach out. Several congressional committees and a special counsel are also investigating allegations of possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

Manafort met privately with staff on that committee in July.

And why did Jared Kushner, a senior adviser to Trump and his son-in-law, as well as Paul Manafort, the former campaign chairman for Trump, come along?

He also said he had reservations about the proposal, describing Rob Goldstone who arranged the meeting as a "colorful" music promoter whom he knew through the son of a Russian oligarch. The embarrassment was compounded by one email in which Trump responded to the prospect of negative information from Russian Federation on Clinton with the words: "I love it".

"Since I had no additional information to validate what Rob was saying, I did not quite know what to make of his email".

Blumenthal also said he expected Trump Jr. would testify under oath later at a public hearing.

"I think this is the preliminary step to see whether he has anything that would justify an open hearing", said Sen. He says his fear is the meeting was a "prelude or overture to more coordinated activity" between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation and says he wants to know if "afterward there was obstruction of justice". One of the participants in the meeting had said that a document was left behind by the Russians.

Donald Trump Jr.is connected to many of those spokes. According to the New York Times, which obtained a copy of his prepared statement, the president's eldest child claims to have struggled mightily with the ethical implications of this offer, and reveals that his supreme confidence in his unshakeable moral compass is the only reason he allowed himself to proceed.

The lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, told NBC News she had no information about the Clinton campaign.

In emails regarding the meeting, Trump Junior was promised dirt on Hillary Clinton, but the administration has provided other reasons for attending. Slowly, details leaked out that a Russian-American lobbyist known for wily political tactics was there, as was the vice president of a Russian real estate company, who two decades ago was the subject of a congressional inquiry into Russian money laundering in USA banks.

He told the Senate committee how he was overwhelmed with his father's marathon campaign, according to the Times. "Every single day I fielded dozens, if not hundreds, of emails and phone calls".
