Aras Agalarov and his son Emin Agalarov have become part of the saga in light of their connection and alleged involvement in the meeting between Trump Jr. and a Russian attorney.

Trump's comments came as he defended his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., who met with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 presidential campaign after he was told she might have damaging information about Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. The emails were sent ahead of a Trump Tower meeting with a Russian lawyer that Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, and Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, also attended.

"Miss Universe now is, in the whole world, because you know it's, like the Super Bowl is a watched, but outside the United States, nobody watches it, it's one of the largest, I think top three broadcasts in the world", Trump says, prompting Emin Agalarov to suggest that only the Olympics earn more viewership.

According to a recent Harvard-Harris poll conducted before the latest revelations, a majority of Americans said the press and Congress should move on from the Russia investigation, and, according to the Gallup organization, overall trust in the press is at a multi-decade nadir. Marc Lotter, Pence's press secretary, attempted to draw a bright line, saying of the vice president: "He is not focused on stories about the campaign, particularly stories about the time before he joined the ticket".

"So there are many things that I do that are the exact opposite of what he would want".

It's unclear why Trump has been enjoying only the comforts of his home on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue even as new allegations have surfaced regarding Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election. Witnesses who refuse to comply with subpoenas risk being held in contempt.

The White House said the timing was a coincidence.

"You know, we've already started the wall because we're fixing large portions of wall right now", he said.

Donald Trump Jr's email thread may serve as the final nail in the coffin. Dianne Feinstein, had also called on Trump testify. "Not a government lawyer, but a Russian lawyer", he said. Feinstein's question is the right one for Wray. The two seemed comfortable with one another during the G20 summit in Hamburg recently, and have indicated a willingness to work together to counter terrorist threats. But committee chairman, Republican Sen.

This question was at the heart of Sen. Also, a Department of Homeland Security official has testified that Russian-tied hackers tried to hack election-related computer systems in 21 states.

The political uproar surrounding Donald Trump Jr. underlines the point that the world needs to move on from email - a fundamentally insecure communication channel invented more than 50 years ago.

"What a good answer that is", the president said.

It was at that meeting where Trump had disclosed "highly classified information" to Russian officials, according to multiple reports. Some in Trump's orbit are pushing the Republican National Committee to bear the costs, said three people with knowledge of the situation, including one who euphemistically described the debate as a "robust discussion".

He added, "Look, it's very easy for me to say absolutely, I won't".

In a statement, Lynch said she had no knowledge of Veselnitskaya's travel.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), who chaired the Democratic National Committee during much of last year's campaign cycle, proposed an amendment targeting Kushner during a House Appropriations Committee markup session Thursday.

Compounding the challenges have been tensions between Trump's and Kushner's legal teams in a frenzied, siege-like environment.
