Trump's eldest son faces questions in U.S. Congress about Russia

7 December 2017

President Donald Trump's eldest son returned to Congress yesterday to face questions about alleged Russian efforts to influence the 2016 U.S. election. Trump Jr.'s appearance came amid mounting criticism of the Russia probes by some of his father's fellow Republicans in Congress.  The committee meeting was conducted behind closed doors. Trump Jr. was not seen by reporters waiting outside the meeting room, although congressional officials confirmed he had arrived.
