The attorney's focus on the law appears aimed at moving beyond the shifting accounts of the meeting given by Trump Jr. He added that he wasn't that surprised by the fact that Trump behaved differently in person from the "image he created for himself during his election campaign" as you cannot "judge" a person based on the election campaign. Intangible donations could include information regarding another candidate.
"Whether we will be able to get the Russian nationals to come over and testify is an open question, (but) those people that our committee has jurisdiction over, the Americans, I sure as heck want to talk to all of them", Warner said.

The revelation of the payment suggests that although Trump did not know about his son's meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya in June 2016 until recently, his campaign committee knew before the president did.
Nonetheless, it was his own son, Donald Trump Jr., who made public this week some emails in which he enthusiastically welcomed the idea of getting damaging information about Clinton from a Russian lawyer, Efe reported.
NBC said Veselnitskaya denied having any connection to the Kremlin and insisted the meeting was to discuss U.S. sanctions against Russia, not the presidential campaign.
"I never worked for the Russian government".
In the words of Energy Secretary Rick Perry, "I don't buy it".
The DHS statement also said Veselnitskaya's visa from 2015 expired, so she used a standard visitor visa issued by the State Department to travel to the U.S. for her meeting with Donald Trump Jr.
On Tuesday, Donald Trump Jr. released an email chain relating to the conversation he had with Veselnitskaya.
