The Times' revelations disclose six new dangers facing Trump's presidency.
The interview comes after a report in The New York Times that Trump Jr. was told in an email that Veselnitskaya had information that was part of a Russian government effort to help Donald Trump's push for the presidency.
Mr Goldstone's posts on social media suggest that Mr Trump has spent several days in Russian Federation on different trips in recent years, including in the months before the U.S. presidential election in 2016. But that, according to Mr Trump Jr, did not materialise. Of course, the sources to the New York Times are not named.
But the paper says there was no mention in the email of any wider effort by the Russian government to interfere in the election, nor was there any indication of a link to the hacking attack on the Democratic Party that was first reported a week after the meeting. Agalarov's father, Aras, is a Russian developer who sought to partner with Trump on a hotel project in Moscow and tried to set up a meeting between Trump and Putin during the Miss Universe contest.
President Donald Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr., agreed to meet with a Kremlin-linked lawyer during the 2016 election campaign after being promised damaging information about Hillary Clinton, the New York Times reported on Sunday, citing three advisers to the White House.
Veselnitskaya told the New York Times nothing about the 2016 campaign had been discussed at the meeting and she had never acted on behalf of the Russian government.

Born at Royal North Shore Hospital, Konta represented Australia in juniors before moving to Spain at age 13. Konta went on to win the next three games before Garcia served out confidently to love to level the match.
That's it. A so-called scoop in journalistic parlance.
We know the Trump campaign survived and even thrived on chaos, but given his position, both in relation to the candidate and within the Trump organization, it seems really, profoundly weird that Trump Jr. would agree to a sit-down under such mysterious circumstances.
Natalia Veselnitskaya told NBC's Today show that she received a phone call from a man she did not know and was told to meet with Mr Trump Jr.
In a statement, Mr Trump Jr's New York-based lawyer Alan Futerfas called the Times report "much ado about nothing", although he acknowledged his client had received an email from Mr Goldstone to set up a meeting with the objective of passing along damaging information on Mrs Clinton. The lawyer had offered damaging information about Hillary Clinton.
"I think it could very well have been Russian Federation, but I think it could well have been other countries", said Trump in Poland, prior to meeting Putin.
Veselnitskaya is best known as a tireless crusader for repeal of the Magnitsky Act, a 2012 law blacklisting Russian officials believed responsible for the death of a well-known human rights activist.
Trumps are definitely intentionally or unintentionally trying to goof up the political situation. The law typically applies to monetary campaign contributions, but courts might consider information such as opposition research to be something of value. "As it ended, my acquaintance apologized for taking up our time".
The best of Aaron Judge's jaw-dropping Home Run Derby performance
Sano got a little exhausted in the finals, mustering only 10 balls over the fence. "I had no pressure going in", he said. One time out is allotted to a player in each of the first two rounds, and players get two timeouts each in the finals.
This thing called "collusion", by the way, isn't a crime. He said he then emailed Trump Jr., outlining what the lawyer purported to have. -Veselnitskaya meeting "borders on treason".
White House adviser Kellyanne Conway said Monday that the meeting proved nothing. "Moreover, it is not necessarily unprecedented".
On Clinton, she says through a translator: "It's quite possible they were looking for information". Article III defines treason as "levying War against [the United States], or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort". And they would have to know who they were meeting with, Hasen said.
Moreover, it is hardly shocking to see a willingness to gather dirt during that election. And to think many of us thought he probably was the bright one.
Obama advanced Russia's interests in so many ways. But the changing defense is a sign that the president's case is failing factually.
This music makes me want to punch my eardrums in the face!
If what reporters and officials are telling us happened happened, then yeah, there's no more denying it at this point. In 2000, for example, the Al Gore campaign was anonymously sent briefing books and a video that George W. Bush had used to prepare for an upcoming debate.

The Russian president reiterated that there is no reason to believe that Russia interfered in the USA electoral process. But no top Trump aides immediately said - on the record - that Trump didn't accept Putin's explanation.
