Trump Jr releases Russia email chain

US President Donald Trump’s son has released an email chain showing he was offered “sensitive” information on Hillary Clinton by a Russian national.

Publicist Rob Goldstone tells Donald Trump Jr that the information “is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr Trump”.

US officials are investigating alleged Russian meddling in the US election.

Mr Goldstone has previously denied any knowledge of involvement in the election by the Russian government.

The email to Mr Trump Jr says “the Crown prosecutor of Russia” had “offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father”.

Mr Trump replies: “If it’s what you say, I love it.”

Russia does not have a Crown prosecutor, but it does have a prosecutor-general.

Democratic candidate Mrs Clinton lost the presidential election in November to Mr Trump.
