TRUMP JR. CAN’T RE­CALL TALK­ING ABOUT PROBE

Edmonton Journal - - WORLD -

WASH­ING­TON Don­ald Trump Jr. struck an un­apolo­getic tone dur­ing con­gres­sional ques­tion­ing last year, say­ing he didn’t think there was any­thing wrong with meet­ing a Rus­sian lawyer at Trump Tower ahead of the 2016 elec­tion or that the get­to­gether might have been part of a Rus­sian ef­fort to aid his fa­ther, ac­cord­ing to tran­scripts re­leased Wed­nes­day.

The pres­i­dent’s el­dest son also de­flected mul­ti­ple ques­tions from the Se­nate Ju­di­ciary Com­mit­tee.

Trump Jr. an­swered “No, I don’t re­call” when asked if he had spo­ken with his fa­ther about the Rus­sia in­ves­ti­ga­tion, and he could not re­call if he had spo­ken with him the day the Trump Tower meet­ing was ar­ranged.
