Which may explain why on the 7th June, shortly after Trump Jr had arrnaged the 9th June meeting, Trump Sr made a surprise announcement that the following week he was going to hold a major press conference to expose all of Hillary Clinton's crimes, but after the 9th June meeting failed to produce the information Team Trump were hoping for he never did hold that major press conference on Clinton.
In other words, Trump knew that his son was meeting with Russians hoping to get devastating information on Clinton.

Veselnitskaya brought with her a plastic folder with printed-out documents that detailed what she believed was the flow of illicit funds to the Democrats, Akhmetshin said. Veselnitskaya presented the contents of the documents to the Trump associates and suggested that making the information public could help the campaign, he said.
“This could be a good issue to expose how the DNC is accepting bad money,” Akhmetshin recalled her saying.
Trump Jr. asked the attorney if she had sufficient evidence to back up her claims, including whether she could demonstrate the flow of the money. But Veselnitskaya said the Trump campaign would need to research it more. After that, Trump Jr. lost interest, according to Akhmetshin.
“They couldn’t wait for the meeting to end,” he said.
