tRump Jr attorney coordinated to get everyone's stories straight...

Attorneys for Donald Trump Jr. sought to coordinate public statements for attendees of a June 2016 meeting between a Kremlin-connected lawyer and top Trump campaign aides after news broke of the controversial sit-down, according to transcripts released Wednesday by the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The 2016 meeting at Trump Tower attended by Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and indicted former campaign chairman Paul Manafort was billed as an opportunity for Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya to share damaging information about Hillary Clinton.

But after the meeting became public last year, Trump Jr. claimed that only Russian adoption policy was discussed. And even before reporting revealed the meeting, the new transcripts show that his lawyer had begun reaching out to multiple participants to get their accounts straight regarding the day in question.

These discrepancies and the meeting itself have since become a key part of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia on its attempts to interfere in the 2016 U.S. election. Intelligence leaders believe the Kremlin was trying to undermine Hillary Clinton and help Donald Trump in his White House bid.
