Ex-Soviet agent at meeting between Trump Jr., Russian lawyer: NBC News

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer in June 2016 was also attended by a Russian-American lobbyist who was a former Soviet counter-intelligence officer, NBC News reported on Friday.

NBC News did not identify the former intelligence officer, who it said had denied any current ties to Russian spy agencies but had served in the Soviet military. He has emigrated to the United States, where he holds dual citizenship.

Washington this week has been fixated on emails released by President Donald Trump’s eldest son showing he met with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 presidential campaign after he was told she might have damaging information about Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
