While Veselnitskaya says she sought to discuss the sanctions while meeting the Trump campaign representatives, music promoter Rob Goldstone said Veselnitskaya had scandalous information on Hillary Clinton as part of the Russian government's attempts to aid the Trump campaign.

A lobbyist who was once a Soviet counter-intelligence officer participated past year in a meeting with senior aides to U.S. President Donald Trump, including his son, and a Russian lawyer, NBC News reported on Friday, adding to allegations of possible connections between Moscow and the November election.

Akhmetshin, who lobbied in Washington to overturn the Magnitsky sanctions, is a dual citizen who was born in Russian Federation and served in the Soviet military.

The assembly becomes the first confirmed private meeting between Russians and Trump's campaign team in the wake the of the campaign for the 2016 USA elections.

On June 9, 2016, Trump Jr., met with Veselnitskaya.

The proof? If the meeting had involved receiving information from the Russian government for the objective of derailing Clinton's campaign, surely Paul Manafort, the campaign manager, would have directed everyone involved to delete the incriminating emails.

In an earlier interview with NBC, Veselnitskaya said she was accompanied to the meeting by at least one other person whom she declined to identify. He lobbies the U.S. Congress, often on behalf of wealthy businessmen or politicians from former Soviet republics, records show.

Among the big unanswered questions: What happened to the joint cyber-security agreement Trump said had been reached? NBC reported Friday that a translator also participated in the meeting, in addition to Akhmetshin and Veselnitskaya.

The panel is investigating Russian meddling in the United States election. That publicist also told Trump Jr. the information was "very high level" and "sensitive" and part of the Russian "government's support for Mr. Trump".

Rinat Akhmetshin told AP news agency he went to the meeting at which Donald Trump Jr was promised Kremlin-linked material about Hillary Clinton.

The comments were released by the White House on Thursday.

Rep. Adam Schiff of California says Trump Jr.'s shifting explanations "paint a portrait of consistent dissembling and deceit". "I mean, how many people are not going to take the meeting?"

Trump Jr. ended up agreeing to the meeting.

"They couldn't wait for the meeting to end", he reportedly said.

"I said, 'Did you do it?' And he said, 'No, I did not".

A US Democrat Senator has called for the resignation of US President Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior White House adviser. " Trump Jr.'s response was, "This is everything".
