'There is no doubt that Russian Federation undertook an unprecedented effort to interfere with our 2016 elections, ' the committee's Republican chairman, Senator Richard Burr, said in a joint statement with the committee's top Democrat after a closed hearing on the issue. On March 12, however, Representative Michael Conaway, in charge of supervising investigation of Russian plot in House of Representatives, rejected ory of support for Trump. It's a predictable variation on the recent theme we've seen emerge over the past few weeks from team Trump's explanations regarding the Stormy Daniels hush money payment: inconsistencies abound.
The House Republican report alleges there were "significant intelligence tradecraft failings" in that assessment from the intelligence community, which they argue "undermine confidence" in the conclusions about Putin's objectives in the 2016 election. To carry out this interference, y carried out cyber, disseminated private emails of Democrats and toxic propaganda for exsecretaría of state, according to its conclusions.
There's no set timetable for the Senate committee to release that chapter of its report, but much of the focus has been on special counsel Robert Mueller, who's conducting a parallel criminal probe into Russia's interference, as well as whether Trump attempted to obstruct the FBI's probe in its early stages. Former FBI Director James Comey, who was sacked by Trump, was invited but did not appear. Comey declared shortly after having felt pressured to settle matter quickly.

According to Trump, Jr., she only handed over "something about individuals connected to Russian Federation supporting or funding Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton or the Democratic National Committee". But if that possibility fazed Trump Jr., it didn't show in the transcripts. For example, Trump Jr.
Regarding the now infamously misleading statement that Trump Jr. released after news of the June 2016 meeting broke - that the participants had "primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children" - his testimony reveals that his account of what happened diverges materially from reporting by the Washington Post. Goldstone himself had sold the pitch to Trump Jr.as "obviously very high-level and sensitive information but is part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump helped along by [Agalarov...]" and was later embarrassed after Veselnitskaya reportedly began discussing a separate topic. It is important that, in post of preparation for meeting, he said he was delighted to celebrate it.
Goldstone, who arranged the meeting at the request of Azerbaijani-Russian pop singer Emin Agalarov, said, "I believed it was a bad idea and that we shouldn't do it".
