Conservative journalist Bill Kristol said Thursday that "we will find out the truth about this meeting" after news reports that a grand jury subpoenaed Donald Trump Jr. on his discussion last year with a Russian lawyer.

"If you just look at it on its surface, it looks like a pretty suspicious meeting," Kristol, editor-at-large at The Weekly Standard, told Jake Tapper on CNN.

"Other crimes could have been committed in covering up the meeting or in terms of what was given over the meeting — or in the use of what was given up at the meeting.

"Theyre going to subpoena the e-mails, text messages, the contemporaneous phone call logs," he said. "I always thought they'd would find out what happened at that meeting."

Reuters reported that a grand jury impaneled by special counsel Robert Mueller had issued subpoenas to Trump Jr. regarding his June 2016 meeting with the Moscow lawyer under the guise of obtaining damaging information on Hillary Clinton.

Trump Jr.'s brother-in-law, Jared Kushner, now a top White House adviser, and former Trump campaign senior adviser Paul Manafort also attended the Trump Tower meeting. In addition, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that Mueller's grand jury had begun working on the Russia probe "in recent weeks."

Ty Cobb, President Donald Trump's special counsel, told the Journal in a statement: "Grand jury matters are typically secret.

"The White House favors anything that accelerates the conclusion of his work fairly.

"The White House is committed to fully cooperating with Mr. Mueller," he said.

Kristol told Tapper that Mueller's grand jury was "going to subpoena the people to say what happened, and not just the people in the meeting.

"They're going to subpoena Donald Trump's secretary to ask did Donald Jr. show up a half an hour after the meeting to talk to his father?

"Then, they'll put Donald Jr. Under oath and ask him, 'What did you tell your father?'"
