Russian lobbyist also attended meeting with Trump Jr

Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya speaks ABC's'Good Morning America about meeting with Donald Trump Jr. in footage aired Wednesday

He denies current ties to any Russian intelligence agencies, though some USA officials suspect otherwise, NBC said.

NBC claimed that some US officials believe the lobbyist has ties to Russian intelligence.

Another Russian lobbyist attended meeting with Donald Trump Jr.

Though Veselnitskaya said she wasn't working for Russian authorities, she told the Journal she met with them regularly, including Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika, a top official appointed by the Kremlin.

Browder filed a formal complaint to the Department of Justice in July 2016, accusing Akhmetshin of failing to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act while lobbying for Russian interests. In messages from Goldstone to Trump Jr., Veselnitskaya was characterized as a "Russian government attorney", though she has denied connections to the Kremlin.

CBS News has learned President Trump was briefed about Trump Jr. meeting three days before it was disclosed in the New York Times, though it seems he was not aware there were more people in the room than was first reported.

"The only time I spoke about Russian Federation with Donald Trump was in passing, during a dinner conversation in 2013, long before he chose to run for President", Mr Caputo said in his written statement. He is one of several people linked to the Trump campaign who are under scrutiny by a special counsel and congressional committees investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign and potential coordination with Trump associates.


In her previous interview, Veselnitskaya said a friend told her to meet his friend who turned out was the son of the Republican presidential candidate.

The story is a major blow to the Trump administration's defense against accusations of collusion with the Russian government, and may show Trump Jr. committed a federal crime.

On Tuesday, Donald Trump Jr. released an email chain relating to the conversation he had with Veselnitskaya.

"I never thought this would be such a big deal, to be honest", Akhmetshin added.

"The goal posts have been moved", White House adviser Kellyanne Conway said Friday morning on Fox News. Cobb's role is separate from Trump's outside legal team, led by NY lawyer Marc Kasowitz.

Akhmetshin said Veselnitskaya brought with her a plastic folder with printed-out documents and that he was unaware of its content or whether they had been provided by the Russian government.

In 2015, lawyers for the Russian mining company International Mineral Resources claimed in the US District Court of the District of Columbia that Akhmetshin helped organize the hack, theft and dissemination of private documents.
