President Donald Trump's eldest son was questioned behind closed doors yesterday by Senate investigators over possible connections between his father's 2016 campaign and Russia.
Donald Trump Jr, who serves as executive director of the Trump Organization, avoided news cameras and reporters and entered a meeting in the US Capitol complex with investigators of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
He gave an opening statement lasting 10 to 15 minutes, Senate Democrat Dick Durbin told reporters.
Trump Jr, 39, became a key figure in the Russia probe after he agreed to a meeting with a lawyer linked to the Kremlin in June 2016.
The meeting at Trump Tower in New York, in which the campaign team was promised dirt on Donald Trump's rival Hillary Clinton, was also attended by Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and then-campaign manager Paul Manafort.
