The announcement came hours after the Senate Judiciary Committee released more than 2,500 pages of transcripts regarding a June 2016 meeting that included representatives of Trump, including his son Donald Jr., and a group of Russians who promised damaging information about Clinton, the eventual Democratic presidential nominee.

Even Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee who staunchly rejected that portrayal criticized the decision to take the meeting as poor judgment.

In addition to Trump Jr., the committee interviewed four other people who attended the Trump Tower meeting in NY - publicist Rob Goldstone, who set up the meeting with the promise of dirt on Clinton; Rinat Akhmetshin, a prominent Russian-American lobbyist; Ike Kaveladze, a business associate of a Moscow-based developer, and a translator.

The House committee said the intelligence agencies failed to use "proper analytic tradecraft" when they assessed Mr Putin's intentions. They were trying to help Bernie.

Congressional investigators released some 1,800 pages of transcripts of interviews with Donald Trump Jr.

The Mother Jones report added that Donald Trump appeared to be "fixated" on the idea of meeting with Putin and was "bitterly disappointed" when Putin said he would could not attend the Miss Universe contest and would not be able to meet with the real estate magnate. The meeting is one of pillars of Mueller's research and of Judicial Committee itself, which has not yet announced its conclusions.

According to Trump Jr.

Mr Goldstone e-mailed Mr Trump's personal secretary, Ms Rhona Graff, on July 22, 2015, just six days after Mr Trump launched his presidential campaign, inviting Mr Trump to attend Mr Aras Agalarov's 60th birthday party on Nov 8 of that year in Moscow.

Trump Junior said he doesn't remember discussing the Russian Federation investigation with this father. It is important that, in post of preparation for meeting, he said he was delighted to celebrate it.

As Veselnitskaya was giving her presentation, Trump Jr. specifically asked her if she had any information on Hillary Clinton, suggesting he was frustrated by the lack of dirt about his father's opponent, according to both Akhmetshin and Kaveladze. He also claims that he did not communicate controversial meeting to his far. They worked out who should sit where, and I sat next to Mr. Kushner.

"I just sent somebody an email that says I'm setting up a meeting for someone that is going to bring you damaging information about somebody who was running to become the President of the United States", said Goldstone in the transcript.
