Next tonight here that major headline
involving Donald Trump Jr.
The president's son sitting down
with Senate investigators,
answering questions behind closed doors
for hours today.
A prime focus: that Trump Tower meeting
during the campaign with a Russian lawyer,
set up after an acquaintance told Don Jr.
the lawyer had dirt on Hillary Clinton.
Today Don Jr. told the committee
he took the meeting because
“to the extent they had information
concerning the fitness, character
or qualifications of
a presidential candidate,
I believed that I should at least
hear them out.”
Sources say he told investigators
there was no collusion.
There are still a lot of gaps,
and a lot of questions to be answered.
Lawmakers I've talked with say
they want him to appear again,
this time in public.
