Russia denies knowing lawyer who met Donald Trump Jr over US Election

Donald Trump Jr does not hold a post in the US administration so was not obliged to disclose foreign contacts

The Kremlin has said it has no connection with the Russian lawyer who met Donald Trump's eldest son during the 2016 presidential campaign.

It came as Donald Trump Jr appeared to change his account of what happened at the meeting.


Natalia Veselnitskaya reportedly met Mr Trump Jr, the President's son-in-law Jared Kushner and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort at Trump Tower in June last year.
The meeting was first revealed in the New York Times on Saturday.
Vladimir Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said the Kremlin does not know Ms Veselnitskaya and that it "cannot keep track" of every lawyer and their meetings in Russia or abroad.
Representatives of Mr Trump Jr and Mr Kushner, who is married to the President's daughter Ivanka, have confirmed they went to the meeting.
In his first statement about it, released on Saturday, Mr Trump Jr said the meeting concerned US-Russia adoption law.
But in a second statement a day later, Mr Trump Jr said he went to the meeting after Ms Veselnitskaya promised "damaging information" about his father's Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.
The lawyer "stated that she had information that individuals connected to Russia were funding the Democratic National Committee and supporting Mrs Clinton", Mr Trump Jr said.
His earlier statement did not mention Mrs Clinton.
Mr Trump Jr added that during the meeting it became clear the lawyer had "no meaningful information" and instead made vague statements before changing the subject to the adoption law.
He said he believed this had been Ms Veselnitskaya's reason for the meeting and that the promise of helpful information on the campaign was a pretext.
The New York Times describes Ms Veselnitskaya as known for her attempts to undermine sanctions against Russian human rights abusers.
A spokesman for Mr Trump's legal team said President Trump was not aware of the meeting and did not attend.
