A seventh person, translator Anatoli Samachornov, attended the meeting as well, The New York Times reported Friday, in addition to an eighth participant CNN described Friday as a representative for the Russian family who asked Mr. Goldstone to arrange the meeting.

President Trump has cast doubt upon the U.S. intelligence community's consensus conclusion that Russian Federation interfered in the election on his behalf on numerous occasions, variously characterizing the story as "phony", "a big Dem HOAX!" and "a big Dem scam and excuse for losing the election!"

Well, it now appears as if Trump Jr. has left out the fact that a Russian-American lobbyist was in attendance, and even worse, there now appears to have been information handed over to the Trump Campaign during the meeting.

Akhmetshin told the AP news agency he served in a Soviet military unit that was part of counterintelligence, but that he was never formally trained as a spy.

"She's been in touch with Chaika daily coordinating the Russian state attack against me", Browder said in an interview with Business Insider on Friday.

The White House was reportedly blindsided by the revelations.

The day after the first story detailing the meeting, it was reported that Trump Jr. had accepted the meeting to obtain damaging information about then-candidate Hillary Clinton.

Trump Jr. then said Veselnitskaya's "true agenda" was to discuss the US adoption of Russian children, which Moscow has banned, and the Magnitsky Act, a 2012 USA law that meant to punish Russian human rights abusers following the 2009 death of imprisoned Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky.
