Previously undisclosed emails show follow-up after Trump Tower meeting

Previously undisclosed emails show follow-up after Trump Tower meeting

"In my view, there is no attorney-client privilege that protects a discussion between father and son", Schiff said. Trump Jr. met with members of the House intelligence committee from 10 a.m. until 5:55 p.m. on Wednesday, though the panel took breaks for votes during the day.

Trump Jr.'s attorney asked "for more time to deliberate" on whether to share additional information, and Schiff said Democrats will follow up on their request for details about what the Trumps discussed.

Schiff said that while Trump Jr. admitted speaking to his father about his response to reports on the meeting, he "refused to answer questions about that meeting on the basis a claim of attorney client privilege".

Kaveladze attended the meeting in Trump Tower between Trump Jr. and the Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya. Veselnitskaya says Trump pressed her for written evidence of malfeasance by Clinton during the meeting.

Donald Trump Jr.is headed to the Senate Judiciary Committee today where behind closed doors, far from the ears of the American public, he's going to testify about his involvement in the possible collusion with Russian Federation that occurred during the Donald Trump campaign. Trump Jr.'s initial statement about the meeting, reportedly dictated by his father on Air Force One during a July 8 flight from Germany, inaccurately claimed that the discussion focused on adoption.

"Mr Trump was cooperative at all times", Conaway said.

Again, this information came to light yesterday and it echoes something that Veselnitskaya had said about a month ago, and she was hoping that she would get to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee in an open hearing so that the entire American public could hear what she had to say and learn the truth about that fateful meeting that Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner had with her back in June of 2016.

Trump Jr. had gone into the meeting expecting to receive information on Hillary Clinton that would contribute to his father's election victory.

Given all of this, the conversations that Trump Jr. may have had with his father both before and after this meeting are relevant to the Russia investigation because they go to the question of what Trump may have known about efforts by high-ranking officials in his campaign about contact with Russian officials and when he may have known it. "That's not the objective of attorney-client privilege".

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in August nodded towards the president's involvement in drafting of the statement, saying he weighed in on the statement "as any father would".

In an email, Harvard constitutional law professor Laurence Tribe said he also found Trump Jr.'s invocation of attorney-client privilege to be "ridiculous".

No, he can't. It wasn't even his attorney, it was one of Trump's attorneys.

"The general rule is that a conversation is *not* privileged if a third person is present for the conversation with an attorney and a client", Mariotti said. If this is the case, then I believe that a strong argument can be made that the privilege would remain in place because the argument could be made that the two parties, and their respective attorneys, were working pursuant to a common defense strategy and discussing matters that should be considered legally privileged.

In the end, this is a matter that would have to be resolved by the courts, assuming that either the committee or special counsel Mueller want to pursue the matter.
