Congressional Russia probe extends to Trump's secretary

"Congressional investigators want to question President Donald Trump's longtime personal secretary as part of their ongoing probe into a controversial meeting between Trump campaign officials and a Russian lawyer," per ABC's Benjamin Siegel:

  • "Rhona Graff, a senior vice president at the Trump Organization who has worked at Trump Tower for nearly 30 years, ... remains a point of contact for the sprawling universe of Trump associates, politicians, reporters and others seeking Trump's time and attention, even now that he's in the White House."
  • "Graff's position in Trump's orbit recently gained attention after Donald Trump Jr. released a June 2016 email exchange ... leading up to the meeting ... at Trump Tower." The line that got attention: ""I can also send this info to your father via Rhona..."
  • ABC notes that Graff personally faces no accusations of wrongdoing.
