Donald Trump Jr. has released an email chain that shows him discussing plans to hear damaging information on Hillary Clinton. The President’s eldest son faces bipartisan scrutiny as new details emerge surrounding his June 2016 meeting with a Kremlin-linked lawyer. Trump Jr. was told in an email that the lawyer would provide compromising information about Hillary Clinton as part of a Russian government effort to aid his father’s campaign.

NPR’s Domenico Montanaro (@DomenicoNPR) joins Here & Now‘s Meghna Chakrabarti to discuss this latest turn in the story of alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
