Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee released a report last month that found "no evidence" of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, and also accused the intelligence community of not using "proper analytic tradecraft" in its judgment of Russia President Vladimir Putin's "strategic objectives for disrupting the USA election".
The Wall Street Journal story on the release of the transcripts offers no news other than the release of the transcripts and an ominous statement of the meeting's alleged objective ("A Senate committee on Wednesday released thousands of pages of testimony concerning a 2016 meeting between representatives of Donald Trump and a group of Russians who promised incriminating information about his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton").

A Senate committee released thousands of pages of congressional testimony Wednesday from its probe into a meeting at Trump Tower between US President Donald Trump's son and Russians who had promised incriminating material on Hillary Clinton.

"I didn't think that listening to someone with information relevant to the fitness and character of a presidential candidate would be an issue, no", said the president's son. "I thought that was worthy of the words 'smoking gun, ' yes". Look at the infamous dossier from Christopher Steele!
"Everyone that we've ever had testify still stands by the full findings of the ICA", Warner said on Monday (Tuesday NZT), referring to the intelligence community's assessment.
The pitches, which began in January 2016, represent the first known instance of Russian nationals urging Trump to accept their help in promoting his White House bid through a more robust social media campaign - though in this case it is limited to Russian-based platforms. They had a very thin slice of what they were looking at. Goldstone himself had sold the pitch to Trump Jr.as "obviously very high-level and sensitive information but is part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump helped along by [Agalarov...]" and was later embarrassed after Veselnitskaya reportedly began discussing a separate topic.
