But Akhmetshin said that he believed the meeting, which also involved Trump campaign chairman at the time, Paul Manafort, and son-in-law and adviser to the President, Jared Kushner, to be "not substantive".

Trump Jr. did not disclose the presence of the lobbyist at the meeting, which took place at Trump Tower in NY and also included Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and campaign chair Paul Manafort. Russian Federation ended the adoptions in response to American sanctions brought against the nation following the 2009 death of an imprisoned lawyer who spoke about a corruption scandal. He said he was unaware of the content of the documents or whether they were provided by the Russian government, and it was unclear whether she left the materials with the Trump associates.

Akhmetshin has been accused of running an anti-Magnitsky Act campaign, which included a film screening a year ago at the Newseum in Washington, D.C.

NBC said Veselnitskaya denied having any connection to the Kremlin and insisted the meeting was to discuss United States sanctions against Russian Federation, not the presidential campaign.

Flores was not an early supporter of Trump during the primary campaign.

Trump Jr. has repeatedly said he didn't gain anything from the meeting.

Mr Goldstone emailed Mr Trump Jr to advise him that "two people" would attend the meeting to provide information that is "part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr Trump".

She said the Trump campaign would need to research it more and after that Mr Trump Jr lost interest, according to Mr Akhmetshin.

In an interview this week with Sean Hannity of Fox News, Trump Jr. downplayed the significance of the meeting, calling it a "waste of time".

If this timeline doesn't prove that Trump Jr. and Sr. weren't in contact, I don't know what does.

The meeting at Trump Tower was set up by Rob Goldstone, a British music publicist for Russian pop star Emin Agalarov. Flores also condemned Trump's salacious comments about women in a 2005 video released last October.

"The person was described as a friend of Emin (Agalarov)'s and maybe as a friend of Natalia (Veselnitskaya)'s", Futeras said. "I think you're going to find it very informative and very, very interesting".

Backlash against Trump Jr. has grown since news of the meeting first emerged Saturday.

Although he confessed that he was interested in receiving the offer of Goldstone to attack the Democratic Party's presidential bet, the presidential son said there was "nothing" significant about his meeting with the Russian lawyer. Futerfas said he himself had spoken to the person, who denied he was working for the Russian government.

US President #Donald Trump has met with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris, one week after he met with Russian President #vladimir putin at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany.
