Donald Trump Jr., the eldest son of President Donald Trump, appeared for a closed-door interview with the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday and then told reporters his responses were the same as during a 2017 appearance before the committee.
The interview had been expected to focus on a Moscow Trump Tower project and a meeting with a Russian lawyer who claimed to have information helpful for Trump Sr.’s 2016 presidential campaign.
“I don’t think I changed anything of what I said because there was nothing to change,” Trump Jr. told reporters after the Senate interview. “I’m glad that this is finally over. We were able to put some final clarity on that and I think the committee understands that.”
Asked if he was worried about potentially perjuring himself, he said: “Not at all.”
The Senate committee, which is chaired by Republican Senator Richard Burr, is conducting a bipartisan investigation into Russian interference in US politics, including the 2016 US presidential election.
The Senate investigation continues although Special Counsel Robert Mueller has concluded his inquiry into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Moscow and possible obstruction of justice by the president.
