Donald Trump’s eldest son met with the US Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday as part of the panel’s investigation into Russia, the 2016 US election and whether his father’s election campaign colluded with Moscow.
Donald Trump Jr arrived at a Senate office building shortly after 10am ET . Capitol police officers tried to keep journalists from witnessing his arrival, but he was spotted by reporters as he rushed to a room the committee uses for classified briefings.
US intelligence agencies said in the wake of Trump’s victory in the November 2016 US presidential election that they had concluded Russia sought to influence the campaign to boost Trump’s chances of defeating former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, his Democratic challenger.
Trump Jr testified to the House Intelligence Committee last week.
