Adams Statement on Donald Trump, Jr.’s Released Emails Regarding Meeting with Russians

Jul 11, 2017
Press Release

Washington, D.C.—Congresswoman Alma Adams (NC-12) released the following statement after reports that Donald Trump Jr. met with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer he believed would provide compromising information about Hillary Clinton, after having been informed that the material was part of a Russian government effort to influence the election.

“Today’s incendiary news underscores the immediate need for an outside independent commission to investigate ties between the Trump administration and Russia,” said Congresswoman Adams. “One after another, senior Trump officials have been caught hiding meetings with Russian agents. This newest revelation of a meeting arranged by Donald Trump Jr. is just another page in a dangerous narrative. We have a responsibility to put partisan politics aside and get the answers the American people deserve.”
