The Senate Judiciary Committee’s release of the transcripts from Donald Trump Jr.’s testimony about the 2016 Trump Tower meeting answers some lingering questions but still doesn't provide much clarity regarding whether the meeting is definite evidence of the Kremlin’s efforts to boost President Trump's chances in the 2016 election.

What we learned: Trump Jr.'s statements surrounding the meeting have notably shifted as more news has emerged about its details, but his statements to the committee indicate that he did seem to hope to receive some sort of dirt about Hillary Clinton or her campaign. And while he expounded on his father's involvement, it's still not clear what the president did — or didn't — know about the meeting.
