Trump Jr. Asked Russian Lawyer for Clinton Foundation Information

The Russian lawyer at the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting told the Senate Judiciary Committee that Donald Trump Jr. asked her for evidence that the Clinton Foundation accepted illegal donations, NBC News reported Tuesday. In a written questionnaire, Kremlin-linked attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya said she did not have that kind of information and had only wanted to speak with Trump Jr. about the Magnitsky Act’s sanctions on Russia. She added that Trump Jr. had misunderstood why they were meeting and seemed to quickly lose interest when she didn’t have any dirt on Hillary Clinton.
