Russian lawyer says she was summoned to Trump Jr. meeting

In an exclusive interview with NBC’s Keir Simmons, Natalia Veselnitskaya said she received a phone call and was asked whether she had information on the Clinton campaign’s finances: “I never knew who else would be attending the meeting, all I knew was that Donald Trump Jr. wanted to meet with me.”

Trump Jr. issued a statement Sunday claiming that he met with Veselnitskaya at the request of an acquaintance from the 2013 Miss Universe pageant, and said the attorney promised she had damaging information on the DNC.
