Trump Jr. said that he went to White House communications director Hope Hicks, who acted as a liaison between the president and his son while aboard Air Force One, CNN reported, citing multiple sources familiar with his testimony.
Trump Jr.'s Wednesday testimony centered around a 2016 meeting with Russian operatives at Trump Tower after being promised information on his father's Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.
According to the report, Trump Jr. vehemently denied that he communicated directly with his father as Trump helped craft his son's response to the reports of the meeting.
The House and Senate Intelligence Committees have interviewed multiple participants of the eight-person meeting in Trump Tower.
