Those emails made it clear that goal of the meeting was based on the claim that the Kremlin-linked lawyer could deliver damaging information about Hillary Clinton, a prospect that elicited a response from Trump Jr. that said: "Sounds great!"
"We will be following up with his counsel", Schiff said.
The conversations that Trump Jr. may have had with his father after the June 2016 meeting are of interest to investigators primarily due to the fact that the younger Trump went into this meeting on the presumption that the Russian lawyer he would be meeting with had connections to the Russian government and that the objective of the meeting was to discuss potentially damaging information about Hillary Clinton. None of the emails CNN reported on Thursday were sent to Trump Jr. directly, but were instead missives sent by Goldstone to Dan Scavino, then a top aide to the Trump campaign and now the White House's social media director, as well as Ike Kaveladze, a Russian who was present at the meeting.
Donald Trump Jr. cited attorney-client privilege as the reason he refused to answer lawmakers' questions about a meeting he had with his father, President Donald Trump. Trump Jr. claims that at the time, President Trump was debating between a longer and a shorter statement while Trump and Hicks were aboard Air Force One.
Lawmakers said they want to question him about a meeting with a Russian lawyer in June 2016 at Trump Tower in NY at which he had said he hoped to get information about the "fitness, character and qualifications" of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Democrat who was his father's presidential election opponent. "There is no attorney client privilege that protects discussion between father and son", Schiff noted.

European arrest warrants withdrawn for Catalan leaders
The Spanish Supreme Court withdrew on Tuesday the worldwide warrant for the arrest of former Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont . However, pro-independence parties view the election as a proxy vote on a split from Spain.
In his statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee in September, Trump Jr. said the meeting was only 20 to 30 minutes and "Rob, Emin and I never discussed the meeting again".
This is silly. "Attorney-client privilege" shields conversations between attorneys and clients.
According to Committee Democrats, most of the 8-hour interview revolved around the younger Trump's notorious meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya at Trump Tower June of 2016, though some questions focused on Trump Jr.'s correspondence with WikiLeaks. Trump Jr., according to the sources familiar with his testimony, said his communications were limited to the messages exchanged via Twitter and went no further. By all accounts, Trump Jr. was relatively forthcoming. No court would take any such use of attorney-client privilege to be anything but laughable. Additionally, a conversation that includes a party and his attorney along with a third party that the attorney does not represent would generally not be considered privileged. If, on the other hand, there were any non-represented parties present for all or part of this conversation then at least that portion of the conversation would not be protected by privilege and could not be revealed or compelled.
The sources added that Trump Jr. was questioned only by members, with limited exceptions, a majority of which were Democrats.
