Senate Judiciary Committee head to ask Donald Trump Jr to testify

Former US spy says Vladimir Putin is trolling Donald Trump over 2016 election meddling

Republican senator: no reason not to pass Russia sanctions bill

Manafort will indeed be questioned for participation in the Trump Tower meeting last June, on behalf of Donald Trump's son, who was aiming to listen to potentially damaging information by the Russian lawyer against Hillary Clinton.

CNN first reported last month that House investigators wanted to talk with Parscale about the Trump campaign's digital operation and question whether Russian Federation aided an explosion of pro-Trump fake news.

Also Thursday, the Justice Department released a heavily blacked out page from Attorney General Jeff Sessions' security clearance application in response to a government watchdog group's lawsuit.

Ivanka Trump and Kushner, who is her husband, are both presidential advisers.

"There doesn't seem to be any ethical standard in the White House", Pelosi tweeted.

Trump has been embroiled in a scandal over his campaign's ties with Russian Federation - which United States intelligence agencies say tried to tip the 2016 U.S. election in his favour.

However, the emails Donald Trump Jr received pitched her as one.

The Virginia Democrat would not say Thursday when the panel wants to interview Kushner or Trump Jr. "I then said to him, in a totally different way, 'Were you involved with the meddling?' He said, 'I was not - absolutely not'".

President Trump says the woman is a private lawyer who has "roamed the hallways" of the US Congress.

"We have an investigation in the Senate", Ryan, R-Wis., said during a press conference Wednesday on Capitol Hill.

"I think we need to let him and his team and our investigators here do their jobs and follow these leads ... wherever they may go, and follow the facts", Ryan said.

The committee is writing to Trump Jr.

Flores was referring to Donald Trump, Jr., who posted on Twitter on Tuesday an email exchange from June 2016 in which he displayed an eagerness to collaborate with a Russian official to obtain damaging information on the Democratic nominee, former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. "It's called opposition research". "They couldn't wait for the meeting to end", he said.

"I think many people would have held that meeting", the president said.

President Donald Trump is defending his son in regards to the Russian Federation investigation, writing on Twitter that his son was "open, transparent and innocent".

Trump repeated that assertion in a talk with reporters Air Force One on his way to Paris Wednesday night.

Trump also praised the "tremendous progress" in Iraq as represented by the retaking of Mosul, but warned that gains must not be lost.
