A June 2016 meeting involving Donald Trump Jr and a Russian lawyer who allegedly had compromising information about former presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, was attending by at least eight people, the media reported.

Regarding the substance, Akhmetshin said that in the course of her work for clients, Veselnitskaya had discovered that a United States hedge fund which "seemed linked to the (Democratic National Committee)" was operating in violation of Russian tax and securities law. He said he served in the Soviet military in a unit that was part of counterintelligence but he was never trained as a spy.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley in March questioned whether Akhmetshin might be downplaying the strength of his Russian ties.

Christie, a former US attorney, spoke Monday at an unrelated event in his first public appearance since he ended a three-day government shutdown earlier this month.

Christie's comments come a day after the Republican president's attorney insisted there was nothing illegal in the meeting that Trump's eldest son attended during last year's presidential campaign.

Akhmetshin, who holds dual US-Russian citizenship, said that the lawyer initially sought his advice on what to say at the meeting before finally asking him to join her for the discussion with the oldest son of then-candidate Donald Trump.

"It's called opposition research, or even research into your opponent".

"The president has stated very clearly that he was not aware of the meeting and did not attend the meeting", Sekulow said.

Sekulow on Trump Jr. Meeting: Secret Service Just Let Them In
Kushner, Senior Advisor to the President, updated his security clearance form on June 21, 2017 to include the meeting. Akhmetshin is a Russian-American who is a former member of the Russian military intelligence unit, known as GRU.

When he brought it up again a few minutes later, Tapper said "I know you want to change the subject" and asked him, "What other meetings or communications with Russians have not been disclosed yet?"

The White House has been engulfed in a wave of new revelations regarding Trump campaign officials secretly meeting with Russian officials.

Grassley's committee is one of several congressional panels investigating the Trump campaign's links with Russian Federation, while Special Counsel Robert Mueller, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, is heading a criminal probe into the election interference and whether the president obstructed justice by firing another Federal Bureau of Investigation director, James Comey, while he was heading the Russian Federation probe before Mueller took over.

"I think, quite frankly, it's probably against the law in addition to being inappropriate", Christie said.
