Donald Trump Jr. spoke to Fox News' Sean Hannity in his first interview since releasing emails which revealed that, prior to taking a meeting with a Russian lawyer, he had been told the Russian government wanted to share information to help his father win. Transcript via Fox News:

On whether he would have done things differently: "In retrospect I probably would have done things a little differently. Again this is before the Russia mania, this is before they were building this up in the press. For me this was opposition research, they had something you know maybe concrete evidence to all the stories I'd been hearing about, probably under reported for years not just during the campaign so I think I wanted to hear it out. But really it went nowhere and it was apparent that wasn't what the meeting was about."
