'Watch Your Back, Bitch': Trump Lawyer Kasowitz Unleashes on Critic in Emails

Manafort also sat in on the meeting with Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya, described as a "Russian government attorney" by the go-between, Rob Goldstone, who told Donald Trump Jr of the Kremlin's plans.

Kushner, the president's senior adviser and Jewish son-in-law, oversaw the Trump campaign's successful digital operation throughout 2016.

A lot of news, gossip, and concerns are swirling as President Donald Trump met with French President Emmanuel Macron yesterday.

"It is unclear how she was still in the country for that meeting, despite being denied a visa beforehand and her parole purportedly expiring on January 7, 2016", Grassley wrote, according to a statement and copy of the letter released Wednesday.

The Obama Justice Department cleared Moscow attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya past year under "extraordinary circumstances", allowing her to enter the United States without a visa before she penetrated then-candidate Donald Trump's inner circle, The Hill reported Wednesday evening.

The panel is investigating Russian meddling in the US election.

In an interview before departing Wednesday evening for France, Trump told Reuters that he didn't know about the meeting "until a couple of days ago when I heard about this".

The prosecutor said Justice was willing to allow the Russian lawyer to enter the United States again as the trial in the case approached so she could help prepare and attend the proceedings. The powerful committee chairman says he is sending the President's eldest son the request in a letter. "From what I've seen so far from meetings with Mr. Wray and from looking at his record, he appears to possess these qualifications".

In a recent interview, Veselnitskaya denied having discussed Hillary-related issues with Trump Jr. during the meeting.

He said that the testimony is going to be "very dramatic but very enlightening for the American people" and could happen as early as next week but likely the week after. "But...the one thing it does do, it totally undermines a six-month story from the White House to which I was sympathetic that there wasn't any collusion".
