President Trump’s oldest son appeared Wednesday before a closed door session of the Senate Intelligence Committee as part of the panel’s Russian election-meddling probe.

Capitol Hill media witnessed Donald Trump Jr.’s arrival at a Senate office building at roughly 10 a.m. Wednesday morning.

Last week, he appeared before a closed-door session of the House Intelligence committee where lawmakers questioned him about conversations he had with his father regarding a 2016 Trump Tower meeting with a Russian lawyer.

The meeting included Mr. Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law, in addition to several Russian operatives who offered damaging information about Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

Special counsel Robert Mueller, who is also investigating the Russian election-meddling issue, has been scrutinizing the Trump Tower meeting, particularly the White House’s response after news of the gathering became public.

On Tuesday, Mr. Trump Jr.’s attorney, Alan Futerfas, demanded the House Intelligence Committee investigate leaks which came from last week’s hearing, which he said were intended to discredit the president’s oldest son.
