Media outlets have confirmed that the meeting between officials of Donald Trump's presidential election campaign and a Russian lawyer, also included a person with connections to Russian intelligence and another as yet unidentified participant.
Following a revelation this week about emails between Donald Trump Jr. and a business associate who helped arrange a meeting with a Kremlin-connected lawyer, Krauthammer wrote that the "evidence is now shown".
A former Soviet military counterintelligence officer who met with President Donald Trump's son, son-in-law and campaign manager in June 2016 had previously lobbied Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Costa Mesa, at least twice about USA relations with Russian Federation.
It was revealed by the New York Times last week that Trump Jr. met with Veselnitskya, which he confirmed when he tweeted out an email chain he'd responded to before the meeting with music publicist Rob Goldstone.
President Trump defended his son while speaking in Paris.

Veselnitskaya told the USA broadcaster NBC she had been accompanied by one other man, but that she would not identify him.
Grassley wouldn't say what he wants to hear from Donald Trump Jr., but said members aren't restricted "from asking anything they want to ask".
The White House has not commented yet either. Please describe any in-person, email or other discussions you had with them, before or after the meeting, about the meeting or any other Russian involvement with the campaign.
But the project was abandoned after the Russian economy floundered, in part, because of USA sanctions imposed under President Obama and those by the European Union after Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
Rinat Akhmetshin, a Russian-American lobbyist of enough renown to have been profiled by Radio Free Europe, told the Associated Press that he accompanied the Russian lawyer in that meeting. Emin Agalarov is a Russian pop singer whose billionaire father, Aras, is a friend of President Trump.

I have absolutely no concerns about what was said in that meeting.Akhmetshin denied reports he has ties to Russian intelligence agencies.
"I told (Putin). I said, look, we can't - we can't have - now, he said absolutely not twice".
Details on Mr Akhmetshin's identity come mostly from a letter sent earlier this year from the US Senate's Judiciary Committee chairman to the head of Homeland Security. "It's called opposition research or even research into your opponent", Trump said.
In the emails, Trump Jr. was told by an interlocutor that he could get "very high level and sensitive information" that was "part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump".
