Schumer: Senate probe meant to let Trump 'peek' at potential evidence

The material, which includes interview transcripts and other "exhibits", is available here.
After a thorough review, Senate Intel has found no evidence to dispute the intelligence community's conclusion that Russian Federation, on orders from Putin, carried out an unprecedented election interference effort to help the Trump campaign and hurt the Clinton campaign in 2016.
They show that Trump Jr. says he doesn't remember ever discussing the Russian Federation investigation at all with his father.
One key question is whether Manafort or Kushner might have alerted Trump, in the thick of the 2016 campaign, to the potential of receiving incriminating information on Clinton via Russian Federation. 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.
The lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, denies working on behalf of Moscow. The subject line reads: "dt jr"-an obvious reference to Donald Trump Jr". That offer does not appear to have translated into an actual digital campaign.
Democrats on the committeereleased a statement arguing the interviews "reveal that top Trump campaign officials were frustrated and angry that the meeting did not produce enough damaging information on their opponent".
Asked in the interview if his father was involved in drafting the statement, Trump said: "I don't know". "The public can now see that for over five hours I answered every question asked and was candid and forthright with the committee".
But when asked to explain why his father then promised supporters at a campaign rally "very interesting" information on the Clintons in the days to come, Trump Jr. said: "I have no idea". Based on the first-take news accounts, however, I'm going to go out on a limb and say I infer there is nothing in them to refute President Trump's denial of "collusion" in purported Russian efforts to assist in his election.
Members of Congress and the Justice Department are investigating.
Participants who attended the Trump Tower meeting, including Donald Trump Jr., claimed the discussion centered on Veselnitskaya's lobbying push to roll back the Magnitsky Act, which would subsequently allow Americans to adopt Russian children. "You just have to get the meeting", Goldstone, a British citizen, testified.
The emails also show he accepted the meeting despite it being described as part of a Russian government effort to aid his father's campaign.
The efforts to deny, hide and misstate key events (e.g., the goal of the June 2016 meeting, the payment to Daniels) are not those of people confident the facts will exonerate them.
Later in his testimony, Trump Jr. repeatedly deemphasized his father's role in shaping how this information was conveyed to the press.
The Senate Intelligence Committee announced that there was no reason to doubt intelligence community findings that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election to support Trump and harm Hillary Clinton.
