"Mr. Manafort must answer questions about his deeply disturbing - and possibly criminal - conduct throughout the campaign, including recent revelations that he joined a meeting with President Trump's son and a Russian agent to seek "dirt" on Hilary Clinton", Blumenthal said in a written statement.
"In retrospect I probably would have done things a little differently", Trump Jr. said. "There was zero coordination" between his campaign and Russian Federation", he told Reuters, adding, "It's the dumbest thing I've ever heard".
