Donald Trump Jr.is headed to the Senate Judiciary Committee today where behind closed doors, far from the ears of the American public, he's going to testify about his involvement in the possible collusion with Russian Federation that occurred during the Donald Trump campaign.
But as Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) told Rachel Maddow on Wednesday night, if Congress tolerates witnesses like Trump Jr. making up new standards for shielding conversations, it will be much harder for investigators to learn the truth about what happened in 2016, even while making it obvious that those involved have something to hide.
On Wednesday, Dec 6, Donald Trump Jr. testified before the House Intelligence Committee in a closed-door session regarding any direct contact with Russian officials during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign.
Jacobovitz noted this question of what Trump knew/when is also coming at a time when at least one of Trump's lawyers is shifting the president's defense from: He didn't to anything wrong to the more fanciful He can't be charged for doing anything wrong. "In my view there is no attorney-client privilege that protects a discussion between father and son", Schiff continued.

"If his father knew about the meeting in advance and either condoned it or encouraged it, that is something [special counsel Robert S. Mueller III] would be very interested in", said Jeffrey Jacobovitz, a white collar criminal defense lawyer who has defended Clinton officials and is now at Arnall Golden Gregory LLP. Trump Jr. spoke with his father shortly after the news about the meeting broke in July 2017, but declined to share details of their discussion with lawmakers.
Goldstone was thrust into the middle of the Trump-Russia story earlier this year when the Trump Tower meeting of Trump Jr.; Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner; former campaign chairman Paul Manafort; and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya was revealed.
"As I understand it, this particular conversation for which they were claiming privilege took place after the emails became public, and, was therefore focused more on the reaction to the publication of the emails", Schiff told reporters. Other GOP lawmakers on the panel echoed that Trump Jr. cooperated with their questioning.
Trump Jr. and the other meeting attendees have maintained that the meeting was instead focused on USA sanctions against Russian Federation, rather than dirt on Clinton.

In response, Amazon said Google had set a "disappointing precedent". We are no longer supporting YouTube on Echo Show and FireTV.
Mr. Schiff said that he believed the contents of the phone call should not be kept secret simply because lawyers participated in it.
In September, Trump Jr. told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he, Goldstone and Agalarov "never discussed the meeting again".
The question of whether or not the attorney-client privilege applies to a given situation is often a complicated one, but it is also usually a question that courts end up deciding in favor of maintaining the privilege. If none of the parties are attorneys then there is obviously no privilege.
Just days after the meeting, Goldstone apparently forwarded a message to Kaveladze referencing a report about Russia's breach of the Democratic National Committee.
