• First on CNN: Investigators seek info from eighth person at Trump Tower meeting

    From CNN Breaking News@VERT to no-reply@siteservices.cnn.com on Tue Jul 18 08:57:14 2017
    Special Counsel investigators are seeking information from the still-publicly unidentified eighth person[1] who attended the June 2016 meeting with Donald Trump Jr. at Trump Tower, this person's attorney Scott Balber says.

    "The eighth person has been identified by prosecutors, and we are cooperating fully with prosecutors as a result of the investigation. To preserve the integrity of the investigation we are declining to identify him at this time," Balber told CNN.

    Balber's comments offer a rare glimpse inside special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into allegations that Trump's campaign colluded with Russia.

    Balber said the individual is a long-time US citizen who speaks fluent Russian and has "never had any engagement with the Russian government in any capacity."
