It's simple: PUTIN INTERFERED IN THE U.S. ELECTION IN ORDER TO AID TRUMP'S CANDIDACY.
"In retrospect I probably would have done things a little differently", Trump Jr. said.
The clips show Trump engaged in animated conversation with the Agalarov men and Goldstone.
President Trump said in a statement from his deputy press secretary, "My son is a high-quality person and I applaud his transparency".
"Obviously it would be appropriate for anybody to get into anything that went on at that meeting, and he was at that meeting", Grassley told Iowa reporters.
"Whoa, look at this! Now I'm glad we're going to dinner", Trump says after meeting the mother and sister. Well, you produce good looking stuff, right?
Indeed, some are arguing that the Clinton campaign likewise colluded-with Ukraine, in its case-to dig up dirt on the elder Trump.
The scope of congressional investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential contest came into sharper focus on Wednesday as lawmakers said they intended to question the former chairman of the Trump campaign and to determine whether Russian social media "trolls" were connected to Trump's election efforts.

Attempting to dissect what Trump said is headache-inducing and fairly pointless, because the overall premise is 100 percent false.

Aras Agalarov told Russian radio station BFM that he doesn't know Trump Jr. personally, though he acknowledges that they "did Miss Universe" together.
Asked if he knew that his son was meeting with lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya in June last year, the president told Reuters "No, that I didn't know until a couple of days ago when I heard about this".
