Transcript for Donald Trump Jr. speaks to the Senate Judiciary Committee
Next tonight here, that major headline involving Donald Trump Jr. The president's son sitting down with senate investigators, answering questions behind closed doors for hours today. The focus, his meeting with the Russian lawyer during the campaign, set up with the promise of getting dirt on Hillary Clinton. Here's ABC's Mary Bruce. Reporter: This is the only glimpse of Donald Trump Jr. We got today. Reporters craning for closer look. But his five-hour meeting with congressional investigators, shrouded in secrecy. A prime focus, that trump tower meeting during the campaign with a Russian lawyer, set up after an acquaintance told don junior the lawyer had dirt on Hillary Clinton. The president's son responded, if it's what you say, I love it. Today, don junior told the committee he took the meeting because "To the extent they had information concerning the fitness, character or qualifications of a presidential candidate, I believed that I should at least hear them out." Don junior has described the meeting as par for the course in a political campaign. For me this was opposition research -- Reporter: He says nothing came of it, and sources say he told investigators there was no collusion. And he never told his father about the meeting. Did Donald Trump Jr. Sway some of your concerns? There are still a lot of gaps, and a lot of questions to be answered. Reporter: Don junior's story has been evolving over time, but in a statement, he says he answered every question today, and trusts this interview fully satisfied the committee, but lawmakers I talked with say they want him to appear again, this time in public, David. Mary, thank you.
