'Several Years in Prison': Sen. Blumenthal Warns Don Jr. About Lying

The Latest Senate Democrat has questions for Trump Jr

Donald Trump Jr.is appearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday to talk Russian Federation - particularly the now-infamous 2016 meeting he took with a Kremlin-connected attorney he believed had dirt on Hillary Clinton.

Donald Trump Jr. was invited to testify in public in July, but reached an agreement instead to speak privately with committee staff.

Donald Trump Jr.is meeting with investigators from the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is conducting one of the four major investigations into the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation.

Congressional investigations of Russian meddling in the US election likely will be extended - perhaps into next year - because of revelations during Congress' August recess about Trump associates' contacts and meetings, Democrats on the Senate and House intelligence committees said Tuesday. US intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian Federation worked to tilt last year's presidential election in favor of Trump, the Republican candidate.

Donald Trump Jr. gives a television interview at the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio U.S. July 19, 2016.

Donald Trump Jr., in a prepared statement to Senate Judiciary Committee investigators, said it was important to learn about Clinton's "fitness" to be president, the paper said.

A music publicist had told Trump Jr. that Veselnitskaya had dirt on Clinton, the Democratic nominee, that had been collected by the Russian government, emails released by Trump Jr. showed. Trump denies any collusion by his campaign, while regularly denouncing the investigations as political witch hunts.

I kept calm until the last climb and there I wanted to see how the others were doing, and when I saw I had good legs I tried to go alone".

Trump Jr. said that Goldstone would "intermittently" contact him including during the campaign when he would offer congratulations or support.

Trump Jr. also is expected to appear before the Senate intelligence committee at some point.

Investigators are also likely to be interested in reports by The Washington Post that the President was involved in May in drafting a statement about the meeting on behalf of his son about the meeting, while flying home from the G20 summit in Germany.

"If it's what you say I love it", Trump Jr. replied.

The meeting is set for the 25th floor of Trump Tower in Manhattan, and Trump Jr. writes that Trump's campaign manager at the time, Paul Manafort, and his brother-in-law, Jared Kushner, would be attending. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Thursday. "I had never worked on a campaign before and it was an exhausting, all-encompassing, life-changing experience", Trump Jr. told investigators.

Representative Adam Schiff of California, the top House intelligence panel Democrat, said he agrees that new information will extend his panel's probe as well.

"The question will be, at that public hearing, whether he remains consistent", the senator said. Kushner has met with that staff, as well as members of the House Intelligence Committee.
