The discussion between then-Republican candidate Trump and his son took place after the emails became public, Schiff said.
Trump Jr. claimed client-attorney privilege to justify his refusal to divulge what he and his father talked about, and top Democrat on the committee, Adam Schiff, was having none of it.
But Trump Jr. told lawmakers Wednesday there were lawyers present during the conversation at issue.
When Trump Jr. posted his email exchange with Goldstone on Twitter in July, CNN reported, citing two unnamed sources with knowledge of the message, that Kaveladze's son George Kaveladze emailed his father asking why Trump, Jr. was admitting to "collusion".

Donald Trump Jr. had agreed to the meeting after receiving an email stating that a Russian government lawyer would provide incriminating facts about Mrs. Clinton as "part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump".
"If his father knew about the meeting in advance and either condoned it or encouraged it, that is something [special counsel Robert S. Mueller III] would be very interested in", said Jeffrey Jacobovitz, a white collar criminal defense lawyer who has defended Clinton officials and is now at Arnall Golden Gregory LLP. This contradicts everything the Trump administration has said about the meeting, and creates a world of legal problems for Don Jr., as Ring of Fire's Farron Cousins explains.

But Veselnitskaya said she hadn't offered anything like that and had only met to discuss the US Magnitsky Act used to place sanctions on high-level Russians.

Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., told CNN Wednesday night.
No, he can't. It wasn't even his attorney, it was one of Trump's attorneys. "That's not the objective of attorney-client privilege".
Congressional investigators and Mueller's parallel independent investigation will be the judge of that.
"A lot of questions were asked and answered, and from my perspective all of our questions were answered", Conaway said after the interview. "Counsel made a claim of attorney-client privilege".
