Previously undisclosed emails show follow-up after Trump Tower meeting, report says

"The attorney-client privilege only protects confidential communications between a lawyer and a client to facilitate the provision of legal services". Trump Jr. met with members of the House intelligence committee from 10 a.m. until 5:55 p.m. on Wednesday, though the panel took breaks for votes during the day.

In an absolutely freaky turn of events, Donald Trump, Jr.

Schiff told reporters that he wants Trump Jr.to answer questions about his conversations with his father and their public response to the meeting.

It is also very convenient for Trump Jr. because the questions surrounding who knew what and when about the June 9 meeting are a central part of the investigation into collusion between the campaign and Russian Federation. But the bottom line is that if what this lawyer is telling us today is true, there is absolutely no question left that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation. However, when it became evident that Ms. Veselnitskaya's motives for arranging the meeting concerned other matters, Trump Jr. seemed to lose interest, according to Veselnitskaya's testimony before the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary on Nov 20.

Rain and sleet Thursday, light snow possible overnight in Houston area
The National Weather Service on Thursday has winter weather advisories covering parts of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. Temperatures in the Atlanta area should be slightly above freezing and won't fluctuate much through the day, Nadler said.

Donald Trump Jr.is headed to the Senate Judiciary Committee today where behind closed doors, far from the ears of the American public, he's going to testify about his involvement in the possible collusion with Russian Federation that occurred during the Donald Trump campaign.

The initial statement in July 2017 gave a misleading impression of the meeting, which later turned out was billed to Trump Jr.as a way to get dirt on the Clintons. None of the emails were sent directly to the president's son, and were sent between British publicist Rob Goldstone and then-campaign aide Dan Scavino, who is now the White House's social media director and assistant to President Donald Trump.

The admission by his Trump's eldest son raises the question of how closely the Trumps coordinated on their response to the bombshell revelations and could bolster the case that President Trump participated in an effort to craft a false public explanation for the Trump Tower meeting.

The conversation between Trump Jr. and his father was about a meeting Trump Jr. had at Trump Tower in June 2016 with a Russian lawyerto get "dirt" on Hillary Clinton. In fact, as we learned later, the President himself participated in drafting a statement that made this claim on the way home from a trip to Europe on Air Force One.

Bob Sutton downplays absence of Marcus Peters vs. Raiders
The Raiders typically have brought out the best in Peters, who has two of his 17 career interceptions against his hometown team. The Broncos haven't won a game since Week 3, that's eight losses in a row, and it doesn't look like they'll win anytime soon.

"He acknowledged discussing that matter with his father, but refused to answer questions about that discussion along the basis of a attorney-client privilege". And some legal experts say the White House's involvement could be problematic since there was ongoing criminal probe into Russian meddling.

In an email, Harvard constitutional law professor Laurence Tribe said he also found Trump Jr.'s invocation of attorney-client privilege to be "ridiculous".

However, Rep. Mike Conaway, the Texas Republican leading the committee's Russian Federation investigation, did not express the same concerns as Schiff about Trump Jr.'s response. Additionally, a conversation that includes a party and his attorney along with a third party that the attorney does not represent would generally not be considered privileged.

The sources added that Trump Jr. was questioned only by members, with limited exceptions, a majority of which were Democrats.
