USA officials also lobby foreign governments all the time.

"I never thought this would be such a big deal, to be honest", Akhmetshin added.

Mr Akhmetshin told the AP news agency he served in a Soviet military unit that was part of counterintelligence, but that he was never formally trained as a spy.

Other lawyers and spokespeople considered for the role were Matt Whitaker, a former USA attorney in Iowa; Laura Ingraham, a conservative radio host; and Washington attorneys William Burck and Emmet Flood, Bloomberg reported.

Last night, news broke that Trump said he might have heard about that meeting. McKenna said. "If you have a discussion and you ask if you can have more information about this, is that asking for something of value or not?"

In a letter to the Department of Homeland Security in April, Mr Grassley wrote: "I write to obtain information regarding Mr Rinat Akhmetshin, a Russian immigrant to the United States who has been accused of acting as an unregistered agent for Russian interests and apparently has ties to Russian intelligence".

But Trump's former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, denies any collusion.

The president's eldest son has played down meeting, which took place on 9 June 2016, since it was reported this week.

"Whether the additional party or parties present during the meeting with these top Trump campaign personnel at the time Donald Trump had seized the nomination were connected directly with Russia intelligence or not, it is clear the Kremlin got the message that Donald Trump welcomed the help of the Russian government in providing dirt on Hillary Clinton", Schiff said. It's called opposition research, or even research into your opponent.

The email chain sparked widespread outrage by Trump's political opponents who have pointed to the meeting as hard evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation against the rival campaign of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

News, which did not identify the Russian-American lobbyist, said some U.S. officials suspected him of still having ties to Russian intelligence, something he denied to the network.

"My son is a wonderful young man", the president said.

"He took a meeting with a lawyer from Russian Federation. It was a short meeting, it was a meeting that went very, very quickly; very fast".

Federal investigators and congressmen are investigating potential links between the campaign and Russian Federation.

And just think, "Trump the Dad" praised his son for being transparent.

The bad news for Trump is that the Russians who met with his son are being placed closer to him.

In an email exchange released by Trump Jr.

Grassley said no questions would be off limits as the panel investigates what the US intelligence community has concluded was Moscow's election interference, personally directed by Russian President Vladimir Putin, into the 2016 USA election. That President Trump's campaign officials had contact with Russian connections.
