Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley told Democrats it will be a few more weeks before the committee can release the transcript of Donald Trump Jr.

The Iowa Republican went over the timeline in a Thursday letter to ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein and committee Democrats.

The transcripts in question — Trump Jr. and four other witnesses — have to do with the June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower at the heart of whether President Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Russians to help defeat Hillary Clinton.

"Following this timeline, it may be a few weeks until the remaining transcripts can be released, but I am committed to working as quickly as we can, consistent with a careful and deliberate process so information that we would agree should be redacted does not accidently get released because we acted in haste," Grassley wrote to Feinstein et al.

In addition to Trump Jr., the Judiciary committee also has to pour through the transcripts of the others present at the meeting who testified:

  • Anatoli Samochornov.
  • Irakly Kaveladze.
  • Rob Goldstone.
  • Rinat Akhmetshin.

"All transcripts generated as a result of witness interviews must be reviewed for errata and appropriate redactions before their release. Our staffs still need to discuss final errata review for Rinat Akhmetshin and Rob Goldstone," Grassley wrote. "I expect that to happen soon.

"After doing so, counsel for the witnesses will then have two weeks to conduc their review. When all errata review is complete, our respective staffs must make appropriate redactions before the transcripts can be made public," Grassley wrote.
