Trump Jr. to speak with panel

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump’s oldest son is expected to speak privately Thursday with a Senate committee investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Donald Trump Jr. is scheduled to be interviewed by staff of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and some senators may also attend. That’s according to three people with direct knowledge of the scheduled interview.

They spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to publicly discuss the committee’s confidential business.

Senators on the committee have said they want to question Trump Jr. about a meeting he took with a Russian lawyer in June 2016. Emails show the meeting was described to Trump Jr. as part of a Russian government effort to aid the Trump campaign.
