National: Donald Trump Jr back to Congress to face questioning on Russia links | The Guardian

Donald Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr, returned to Congress on Wednesday to face questions from lawmakers about alleged Russian efforts to influence the 2016 US election and possible collusion with Moscow by his father’s presidential campaign. Trump arrived shortly before 10am for what was expected to be several hours of questioning by members of the House of Representatives intelligence committee, one of three main congressional committees investigating the matter. The session was conducted behind closed doors, and Trump Jr was not seen by reporters waiting outside the meeting room, although congressional officials confirmed he had arrived.

The younger Trump testified to the Senate judiciary committee in September. The Senate intelligence committee has also said it wants to talk to him.

Lawmakers said they want to question him about a meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya in June 2016 at Trump Tower in New York at which he had said he hoped to get information about the “fitness, character and qualifications” of former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, the Democrat his father defeated in last year’s race for the White House.
