There is a four-minute mystery phone call - which took place just prior to the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Trump campaign officials and Russians - that Donald Trump Jr. claimed he couldn't remember much of anything about.
Although the Senate Intelligence Committee has yet to weigh in on the collusion allegations, Burr and Warner have hinted for days that their panel's interim findings on the intelligence community would depart from those reached by Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee.
Three key figures, including the founder of a Russian gun rights group, refused to submit to interviews or produce documents requested by Senate Democrats investigating whether the Kremlin used the National Rifle Association to boost Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign. The first is attempted coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, and the second is possible obstruction of justice regarding the investigation into that potential collusion.
"The Russian effort was extensive, sophisticated, and ordered by President Putin himself for the goal of helping Donald Trump and hurting Hillary Clinton", Warner continued.
Trump Jr., White House senior adviser Jared Kushner and President Donald Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, met with Russian lobbyists and other participants at Trump Tower on June 9, 2016.
Trump has taken umbrage at the intelligence community's determination that the Kremlin favored his candidacy over Clinton's.
Goldstone, who had promised Trump Jr. that Veselnitskaya would provide harmful information on Clinton, told the committee he made the offer after being assured Veselnitskaya was "well-connected" and had "damaging material".
In the same statement, Vice Chairman Mark Warner, D-Virg., added, "After a thorough review, our staff concluded that the ICA conclusions were accurate and on point".
"There were no questions. I learned about it only afterwards, when I was told that as it turned out he had been to Russian Federation". "And she probably felt this", Akhmetshin was quoted as saying.
"We further assess Putin and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump", the ICA said. A USA court case centering on that allegation was settled in May 2017 on the eve of trial, with Veselnitskaya's client admitting no wrongdoing.
Kushner, who Grassley previously said had been "spooked" out of testifying, and Manafort, who has since been indicted on money laundering and assorted other charges, did not appear before the committee.

Mr Trump did not make it to Mr Agalarov's party in Moscow.
Trump later congratulated Agalarov, and suggested that a long-sought-after Trump-branded building project in Moscow could be finalized.
Once Mr Trump landed in Moscow, he lavished praise on Mr Putin ("strong") as compared to then-US President Barack Obama ("weak") at a reception. The meeting never occurred, however.
Meanwhile, the Senate intelligence committee said it stands behind a 2017 assessment by USA intelligence agencies that Russian Federation intervened in the election to hurt Clinton and help Trump.
"I had no idea why that topic was being raised and quickly determined that my time was not well-spent at this meeting", Kushner told the House Intelligence Committee's Russian Federation inquiry, adding that he texted an assistant and asked for a call on his cell phone to excuse himself from the meeting.
