Fox News: Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with Russian lawyer: What to know
After a New York Times report alleged that Donald Trump Jr. knowingly attended a meeting to garner information as part of a Russian government effort to assist his father's election campaign, the president’s oldest son shared the correspondence on social media.
The New York Times reported that Trump Jr. met with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya in June 2016 after learning that she had damaging information about President Donald Trump’s opponent, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, from the Russian government.
Larry Noble, a former general counsel at the FEC, said the situation "raises all sorts of red flags. You do not want your campaign to be involved with foreign nationals, period," said Noble, now senior director at the Campaign Legal Center."
