(The Hill) The Russian lawyer who penetrated Donald Trump's inner circle was initially cleared into the United States by the Justice Department under "extraordinary circumstances" before she embarked on a lobbying campaign past year that ensnared the president's eldest son, members of Congress, journalists and State Department officials, according to court and Justice Department documents and interviews. "And that would be a wonderful thing", Trump added.

"I think the press made a very big deal over something that really a lot of people would do". US intelligence agencies have accused the Russian government of meddling through hacking in last year's election to benefit Trump and harm Clinton, and authorities are exploring potential coordination between Moscow and the Trump campaign. On Tuesday, Trump Jr. tweeted out emails with British publicist Rob Goldstone that showed how the meeting was set up.

"No, that I didn't know until a couple of days ago when I heard about this", said Trump, Think Progress reported.

Trump's advisers and supporters have invoked the trite phrase "nothing burger" to brush aside concerns about the Veselnitskaya meeting, and the President has insisted it was nothing more than a "very standard" example of trying to obtain opposition research.

The panel is investigating Russian meddling in the USA election. Dianne Feinstein told CNN Thursday she wanted Trump go before the committee as early as next week.

Hoping to send a message to President Donald Trump to maintain a strong line against Moscow, the Senate passed the sanctions on Russian Federation, part of a broader measure also imposing new sanctions on Iran, by 98-2 on June 15.

Anyone asked to testify before the Senate should comply, House Speaker Paul Ryan said Thursday.

"If he had not alerted the individuals who had been out consistently saying, on behalf of the White House that no one there, no one on behalf of the campaign met for the Russians, then that potential for corruption existed for Jared Kushner as well", the senator said.

Sergi Magnitsky was Browden's Russian lawyer who, after being falsely accused of crimes by the Russian government, was imprisoned, tortured for 11 months and finally, while chained to his bed, was beaten to death by his jailers. He was told the Russian government had information that could "incriminate" Clinton and her dealings with Russia.

Mr Trump's new nominee to lead the FBI, Christopher Wray, has said that Donald Trump jnr should have contacted the FBI the moment lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya contacted him in June 2016.

Lawmakers and Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his growing team of experts are investigating Trump's assertion that neither he nor his inner circle of associates colluded with Russians in or out of the Kremlin to gain an edge to defeat Hillary Clinton.

U.S intelligence agencies said earlier this year that Russian Federation sought to help Trump win the election by hacking private emails from Democratic Party officials and disseminating false information online.

Rohrabacher said he shared the data with members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and the Treasury Department.
