"I do," she said. "Come hell or high water."


Earlier this month, Trump Jr. gave an interview to Senate judiciary staff behind closed doors. 

In a statement released following the meeting, he said he thinks the interview he gave "satisfied" investigator's inquiry into the 2016 meeting he took with a Russia lawyer.

“I answered every question posed by the committee related to this topic as well as all of their questions on other topics, until both sides had exhausted their line of questioning,” he said.

“I trust this interview fully satisfied their inquiry,” Trump Jr. added.
