The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee says he'd like Russian-American lobbyist and former Soviet military officer Rinat Akhmetshin to testify before his panel.

California congressman Adam Schiff made the comments after The Associated Press reported that Akhmetshin attended a meeting with President Donald Trump's son, son-in-law and campaign chairman last year.

Emails that Trump Jr. released earlier this week indicate that a Russian lawyer also attended the meeting and was there to pass along damaging information about Hillary Clinton.

The Intelligence panel is investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign and possible links to Trump's campaign.

Schiff says shifting explanations by Trump Jr. about the meeting are "a deeply worrying trend."
