Two Russian lobbyists met with top Trump campaign officials in June 2016, with the promise of “dirt” on Hillary Clinton. The meeting itself — pitched by British music promoter Rob Goldstone to Don Jr. — came with the tagline of being part of the Russian government’s support for Trump.

House Investigators are interested in the meeting itself, which featured Paul Manafort, Don. Jr., and Jared Kushner. They also appear to be interested in a statement that Don Jr. issued about the meeting in July 2017, and how it was coordinated.
