"In my view there is no attorney-client privilege that protects a discussion between father and son", Schiff continued.

Committee Democrats subsequently questioned the legitimacy of Trump Jr.'s privilege claim and raised the possibility of seeking a subpoena to compel him to answer.

But Trump Jr. did not provide details about communications with his father and invoked attorney-client privilege because of the presence of attorneys during the exchange with his father.

The Trump Tower meeting is also being investigated by Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller.

"We will be following up with his counsel", Schiff said. Veselnitskaya said these documents appeared to be Trump Jr.'s primary interest as the meeting essentially ended when she said she didn't have the information.

Donald Trump headed to the Senate Judiciary Committee today where behind closed doors, far from the ears of the American public, he's going to testify about his involvement in the possible collusion with Russian Federation that occurred during the Donald Trump campaign.

Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Kremlin-linked lawyer Trump Jr. met, contradicted the president's response in a letter answering questions from the Senate Judiciary Committee released Wednesday. Initially, of course, the Trump White House and Trump Jr. claimed that the meeting was about the sanctions imposed by the so-called Magnisky Act and the issue of the adoption of Russian babies by American citizens, which was in limbo in wake of the sanctions imposed after Russia's annexation of the Crimean region of Ukraine. Trump Jr. has said he did not follow up on the meeting.

Trump Jr. told lawmakers he discussed the 2016 Trump Tower meeting with his father after emails setting up the meeting with a Russian lawyer became public this past summer. And whatever was said between father and son after emails concerning the meeting became public would certainly be relevant to understanding the role the president might have played in orchestrating the response to the damaging reports about Trump Jr.'s effort to obtain Clinton "dirt". Other Trump aides denied a Washington Post report that Trump "dictated" the statement to his son aboard Air Force One.

As Schiff noted in his statement, it is critical to know exactly what Donald Trump knows about his son's secret meeting with the Russians during the campaign, and what they talked about after it took place. As a general rule, of course, the privilege means that conversations between a client and his or her attorney are privileged and can not be revealed in Court or in any other proceeding of a legal nature such as a Congressional investigation. It does not cover conversations between two non-lawyers like Trump Jr. and his father simply because there happened to be an attorney in the room. "Who was he representing and what was the goal of this conversation?..." None of the newly disclosed emails were sent directly to Trump Jr. In either case, it could be some time before the matter is resolved while the rest of the investigation moves forward.
