Trump Jr. ‘happy to work with’ Senate panel

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s eldest son says he’s willing to communicate with the Senate Intelligence committee.

Donald Trump Jr. tweeted Monday that he’s “happy to work with the committee to pass on what I know” after a senior Republican on the panel said he should be interviewed. Maine Sen. Susan Collins said the committee should talk to Trump’s son about a meeting he and other Trump associates had last year with a Russian lawyer to hear information about Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort accompanied Donald Trump Jr. to the Trump Tower meeting with Kremlin-linked lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.

Trump Jr. said he was told the person he was to meet with might have information that would be “helpful” to the Trump campaign.
