"I don't think this is the right time, but the answer is yes, I would".

Citing two of its sources, CNN said it was Kushner's attorneys who discovered Trump Jr.'s emails about the meeting with Veselnitskata and they were going to turn that information over to the Senate Intelligence Committee, one of the congressional panels investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Veselnitskaya has denied any connection to the Russian government, and the Kremlin has denied any knowledge of the Trump Jr. meeting.

Brad Parscale said in a statement that he is "unaware of any Russian involvement" in the data and digital operations of Mr Trump's campaign.

Akhmetshin served in the Soviet military and emigrated to the USA, where he holds dual citizenship, NBC reported.

The revelation has ramped up the ever-growing Russian scandal surrounding Donald Trump and, according to one analyst, increased his odds of being impeached.

Jared Kushner, Mr Trump's son-in-law and current White House senior adviser, and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort also attended the meeting.

Manafort has denied any coordination with Russian Federation and has said his work in Ukraine was not related to the campaign. "Not only Donald Trump (Jr.), but Ivanka and Jared Kushner", he told Bryan TV station KBTX on Wednesday.

Trump has denied allegations his campaign had contacted Russians to tilt the 2016 election in his favour, but the USA intelligence agencies have differed with that assessment.

"The revelation that the Trump Campaign eagerly meant to possibly collude with Russian Federation is deeply disturbing", Democratic House minority leader Nancy Pelosi tweeted Thursday.

"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.

Russian-American lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin told the news agency AP Friday that he was at a June 2016 meeting in which Donald Trump Jr. was promised information about Hillary Clinton. Russian Federation denies meddling, and Trump says there was no collusion. The president's son accepted the offer, saying he would "love" to receive compromising information on his father's political opponent.

"This is obviously very high-level and sensitive information but is part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr Trump". The five-member commission's three Republicans said they could not support moving forward because not all the facts were available.
