Below is the email exchange between Donald Trump Jr. and publicist Rob Goldstone that began on June 3, 2016, with Goldstone writing about an offer "to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary [Clinton] and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father."

The text is as posted on Twitter by Trump Jr. with some of the header and signature information not included.

The final email (No. 16 below) is from Trump Jr. to his brother-in-law, Jared Kushner, and Trump campaign director Paul Manafort about a June 9 meeting with Kremlin-linked lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.

Good morning

Emin just called and asked me to contact you with something very interesting.

The Crown prosecutor of Russia met with his father Aras this morning and in their meeting offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father.

This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump – helped along by Aras and Emin.

What do you think is the best way to handle this information and would you be able to speak to Emin about it directly?

I can also send this info to your father via Rhona, but it is ultra sensitive so wanted to send to you first.

Best

Thanks Rob I appreciate that. I am on the road at the moment but perhaps I just speak to Emin first. Seems we have some time and if it's what you say I love it especially later in the summer. Could we do a call first thing next week when I am back?

Best,

Don

Hope all is well

Emin asked that I schedule a meeting with you and The Russian government attorney who is flying over from Moscow for this Thursday.

I believe you are aware of the meeting – and so wondered if 3 pm or later on Thursday works for you?

I assume it would be at your office.
