In an interview that aired Tuesday on NBC's "Today", Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr., as well as President Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and then campaign manager Paul Manafort, said she received a phone call from a man she didn't know and was told to meet with Trump Jr.

On Twitter Trump, Jr. claimed that he was sharing the emails in the interest of "transparency".

At the end of an extraordinary series of events propelled by dogged New York Times reporting, Donald Trump Jr. has released an e-mail exchange that preceded his meeting in June 2016 with a Kremlin-connected attorney promising incriminating information about Hillary Clinton.

The Russian lawyer whom Donald Trump Jr. met with past year after being promised compromising information about Hillary ClintonHillary Rodham ClintonRussian lawyer who met with Trump Jr. says she doesn't represent Kremlin Assange: I tried to get Trump Jr.to publish emails with WikiLeaks Five questions raised by the Trump Jr. emails MORE said she doesn't represent the Russian government, The Associated Press reported Tuesday. In one of his responses to a music publicist working to set up the meeting, Trump Jr. says he would "love" to hear more.

The email disclosure now thrusts the president's son to the center of multiple United States investigations by Congress and by the FBI as to whether Trump's team was in the know. "If it's what you say, I love it, especially later in the summer", he replied.

U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian President Vladimir Putin approved a mass effort to tilt the election in Trump's favor, including hacking and leaking embarrassing emails from Democrats. Indeed, the revelations regarding the younger Trump make it even harder to believe the administration's version of just how hard Trump pushed Putin on election interference.

Graham said he found it "odd" that Veselnitskaya apparently had "absolutely nothing" in terms of the alleged damaging information Trump Jr. was promised.

The email release followed days of evolving accounts from Trump Jr. about the nature of the meeting and its objective. However, according to The New York Times's Clifford Levy, the chain was posted to get ahead of the newspaper before it broke the story.

On Saturday, Trump Jr. described the encounter as being a "short introductory meeting" focused on the disbanded program that had allowed American adoptions of Russian children.

A day later, Trump Jr. changed his account, acknowledging that he was told beforehand that Veselnitskaya might have information "helpful" to the Trump campaign, and was told by her during the meeting that she had something about Clinton.

Politicians are beginning to comment on Trump Jr.'s tweets with Sen.
