Senate Judiciaryís meeting with Trump Jr. scheduled for Thursday

By Karoun Demirjian September 5 at 8:21 PM

The Senate Judiciary Committee will meet with Donald Trump Jr. on Thursday to discuss the Trump campaignís contacts with Russia, according to three Democratic members of the committee.

The meeting, which is expected to be comprehensive, is the first opportunity that members of the committee will have to grill someone from President Trumpís inner circle about the campaignís alleged attempts to engage with Kremlin surrogates, during a period when the intelligence community believes Russia was taking steps to influence the 2016 presidential election in favor of Trumpís candidacy.

Trump Jr. will be the first Trump campaign member who participated in a June 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer to speak with the Senate Judiciary Committee. Committee members still hope to interview Trumpís then-campaign manager Paul Manafort, and the presidentís son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, about the meeting they held in Trump Tower with the Russian lawyer claiming to have damaging information about Hillary Clinton.
