Russian lobbyist also attended meeting with Trump Jr

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

Chuck Grassley of Iowa, said he wanted to speak with Kushner, as well as former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who also attended a meeting in June 2016 with a Russian lawyer.

But the sources told Yahoo News that Marc Kasowitz, the president's chief lawyer in the Russian Federation investigation, and Alan Garten, executive vice president and chief legal officer of the Trump Organization, were both informed about the emails in the third week of June, after they were discovered by lawyers for Kushner, who is now a senior White House official.

NBC claimed that some US officials believe the lobbyist has ties to Russian intelligence. Kushner had to amend his SF-86 three times to add more than 100 names of such people that were not initially disclosed, The New York Times reported.

Akhmetshin added that he had not been contacted by the special counsel's office or the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the meeting with Trump Jr., but said he is willing to talk to investigators.

The news network said some people were bristling at what they perceived to be a mission to protect Jared Kushner, who attended the meeting with Trump Jr. and then-campaign manager, Paul Manafort.

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.

Co-host Willie Geist read Trump's tweets on the MSNBC morning show as the panel accused Trump's White House of using anonymous sources "all the time" despite the president often mocking the use of anonymous sources by the mainstream media.

Mr Trump Jr released emails this week from 2016 in which he appeared eager to accept information from the Russian government that could have damaged Hillary Clinton's campaign.

On Thursday evening's edition of "The Five", panelists Juan Williams and Meghan McCain went at it over Donald Trump Jr. and Russian Federation.

"We still have no reason to believe that the goal of the meeting was to talk about Hillary Clinton or the U.S. election", Balber said.

The meeting in June a year ago has heightened questions about whether Mr Trump's campaign co-ordinated with the Russian government during the election, which is the focus of federal and congressional investigations.

Agalarov allegedly proposed the meeting between Trump's son and the Russian lawyer.

The president's son has tried to discount the meeting, saying he did not receive the information he was promised.

Trump Jr. ended up agreeing to the meeting. "It is totally bogus to suggest that somehow it was ok because they didn't actually obtain any useful information in it", said Former Obama White House Secretary Josh Earnest.
