The Senate argues that Putin wanted to help Trump win the election

Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) speaks with reporters on Capitol Hill in Washington, US, April 26, 2018.

In the House Intelligence Committee's unredacted report on Russian meddling released May 4th, fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe alleged to House members that Comey initiated the "ambush", of Former national security advisor Michael Flynn.

A former US attorney says it "almost defies credibility" that President Trump was not aware of the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer. The first is attempted coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, and the second is possible obstruction of justice regarding the investigation into that potential collusion.

Allies of President Donald Trump in the House have argued that while Russian Federation did interfere in the election, its strategy was simply to create chaos in USA elections, not to favor any particular candidate for the presidency.

The controversial Russian meeting of Trump Jr. "When asked if he knew if Trump had provided any "edits" or "input" to the statement, he said "(h) e may have commented through Hope Hicks".

Q. So you did not pass the information along to your father.

Trump Jr. answered "No, I don't recall" when asked if he had spoken with his father about the Russian Federation investigation, and he could not recall if he had spoken with him the day the Trump Tower meeting was arranged.

Like Trump Jr. and Kushner, who released a public statement about the meeting previous year, Goldstone said the meeting was disappointing. When asked about the House findings, he said: "Well, I'm not sure the House was required to substantiate every conclusion with facts".

Mueller has brought several unrelated charges against Manafort, including money-laundering conspiracy, false statements and acting as an unregistered foreign agent related to Ukrainian political work.

No record existed that suggested Trump Jr. shared the information with his father, and the White House has said that Trump didn't know about the meeting taking place.

"Their efforts to hide the meeting and its true objective are consistent with a larger pattern of false statements about the Trump campaign's relationship with Russian Federation", they said in a statement.

The conclusion is at odds with Republican members of the House intelligence committee, who said that while they agreed that Russian President Vladimir Putin wanted to hamper Clinton's campaign, that didn't mean he wanted to help Trump.

The Senate Intelligence Committee, of Republican Majority, argues that Russian Federation interfered in presidential elections of 2016 in order to favor victory of Donald Trump, a sis that was aligns with that of intelligence services of United States but That clashes with what was raised only two months ago by Republicans mselves of or chamber of Congress, that of Representatives.

Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Mark Warner, a Democrat, went further in his assessment of the intention behind Russia's interference.

It's a powerful bipartisan endorsement of a conclusion that had been called into question by Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee, who have accused intelligence agencies of failing to employ proper "tradecraft" when they concluded Russian Federation came to support Trump's candidacy.
