The House report was also highly critical of the US intelligence officers, saying they did not follow best practices in their efforts to determine whether Moscow attempted to help Trump against his Democratic rival. The meeting is one of pillars of Mueller's research and of Judicial Committee itself, which has not yet announced its conclusions.
Along with the congressional panels, Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been appointed to investigate Russian interference in the election and any potential links between the Trump campaign and Russian officials. But if that possibility fazed Trump Jr., it didn't show in the transcripts.
The Trump Tower meeting was arranged by a music promoter, Rob Goldstone, who reached out to Trump Jr saying he had "official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russian Federation and would be very useful to your father". As Mother Jones noted, the testimony painted a picture of Trump "fixated" on meeting with Putin and crushed when the Russian president did not have time for him.
The committee previously released testimony from Veselnitskaya, who has also given extensive interviews to NBC News, and from Glenn Simpson, the founder of research firm Fusion GPS, who worked with Veselnitskaya on Magnitsky act matters and who also commissioned the infamous dossier that detailed Trump's alleged Russian links.
On Wednesday, Don Jr. said that the transcripts show that he had cooperated with the investigation.

Her faith was rewarded, for Moses was found by the Egyptian princess and raised up to become the deliverer and lawgiver of Israel. She made sure my childhood was very lovely.She made sure all of us, three brothers and two sisters had a normal happy childhood".
Trump Jr. deflected multiple questions during the interview, including whether he discussed the Russian Federation probe with his father.
That statement said the meeting primarily concerned a Russian adoption program, though Trump Jr. later released the emails showing he agreed to the sit-down after he was promised information on Clinton. A big question has been whether that was his father, and whether Trump Jr. might have informed his father about the meeting. In short, I wish I had not spent five hours of my day going through them, but alas, here we are.

Trump was reportedly hoping that the Miss Universe contest could open doors to a major development deal in Moscow.
