Donald Trump Jr to Meet with House Intelligence Committee Next Week

Donald Trump Jr. has agreed to answer questions from members of the House Intelligence Committee next week, CNN reported Wednesday, citing multiple sources familiar with the matter.

The meeting, scheduled for December 6, will be the first time Trump Jr. will take questions from congressional investigators since The Atlantic reported on Trump Jr.’s private correspondence with Wikileaks, an anti-secrecy organization accused of having been used by the Kremlin.

The House Intelligence Committee is one of several congressional committees examining whether the Trump campaign collaborated with the Russian government in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

In November, Trump Jr., a vocal Trump campaign surrogate and the president’s eldest son, published Twitter conversations he said he had with the anti-secrecy organization Wikileaks. He said that congressional committees had chosen to selectively leak the material and said he was releasing the “entire chain.”
