Trump Jr. wraps up 9-hour interview with Senate Intelligence Committee

Donald Trump Jr., the president's son, waves at reporters as he departs after a full day being interviewed by Senate Intelligence Committee staff, as part of the panel's ongoing investigation of allegations of Russia's interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., on Wed., Dec. 13, 2017.


Donald Trump Jr. wrapped up a nine-hour long closed-door meeting with the Senate Intelligence Committee Wednesday evening, finishing his third interview with Congress for investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Following a September meeting with the Senate Judiciary Committee, last week he also spoke with the House intelligence committee.

Investigators have been probing a June 2016 gathering at Trump Tower in New York in which a Russian lawyer connected to the Kremlin met with Trump Jr. and other senior campaign officials.

Virginia Sen. Mark Warner -- the highest ranking Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee -- has called for Trump Jr. to return to Capitol Hill for a public hearing.
