A democrat lawmaker has reportedly released the transcripts from the Trump Tower meeting interviews on Wednesday.
The Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday morning released the transcripts from a slate of interviews with participants of the now-infamous Trump Tower meeting in June of 2016.
Among the transcripts is the panel's interview of President Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., who accepted the meeting with a woman described as a Russian government lawyer offering political dirt on Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
The meeting has become a flashpoint in the roiling speculation surrounding Trump and Moscow.
The White House and Trump Jr. staunchly defended the June 2016 meeting as appropriate but offered evolving explanations of its purpose. Trump Jr. later said the meeting revolved around a lobbying push by the Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, to urge the repeal of a U.S. sanctions law that had led Russia to ban Americans from adopting from the country.
"I appreciate the opportunity to have assisted the Judiciary committee in its inquiry," Trump Jr. said in a statement released Wednesday that thanked panel Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein (Calif.).
"The public can now see that for over five hours I answered every question asked and was candid and forthright with the committee. I once again thank Chairman Grassley and Ranking Member Feinstein, as well as other members of the committee and their staff for their courtesy and professionalism."
Now all there is left to do is wait and watch how the media flips everything.
