Trump Jr. Testifies He Can’t Discuss Conversation He Had With His Father

Trump Jr. Testifies He Cant Discuss Conversation He Had With His FatherDonald Trump Jr. told the House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday he couldn’t discuss a conversation he had with his father this summer because of attorney-client privilege. Neither Trump is an attorney or the other’s client, but according to Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), Trump Jr. claimed there was a lawyer in the room during their discussion so it counts. The conversation in question concerned Trump Jr. meeting with Russians during the 2016 campaign. In a statement over the summer, which President Trump reportedly had a hand in drafting, Trump Jr. described the meeting as being short and solely about the adoption of Russian children; it was later revealed Trump Jr. agreed to the meeting because the Russian government was promising compromising information on Hillary Clinton.
