7:03 am
russian intelligence. nbc news is not naming that lobbyist, who denies current ties to russian spy agencies. his presence, likely to be of interest to investigators. natalia veselnitskaya was accompanied by someone was denied to identify him. the president, before bastille day celebrations in paris, defended the young man. >> my son is a wonderful young man. he took a meeting with a russian lawyer. not a government lawyer, but a russian lawyer. >> reporter: trump jr. took the meeting with someone explicitly identified as a russian attorney. >> i think from a practical standpoint, most would have taken that meeting. nothing happened from the meeting. zero happened from the meeting. and i think the press made a big deal over something that really a lot of people
