The following is a transcript of the chain of emails released by Donald Trump Jnr describing arrangements for a June 2016 meeting with a “Russian government lawyer” said to have information damaging to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

They are listed here in chronological order for clarity. Bracketed material listed as “obscured’ was redacted in the released material.

Referenced in the emails are Rob Goldstone, a music promoter, singer Emin Agalarov, and his father, Moscow-based developer Aras Agalarov, who was involved with Trump Jnr’s father, Donald Trump, in hosting the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow.

Good morning

Emin just called and asked me to contact you with something very interesting.

The Crown prosecutor of Russia met with his father Aras this morning and in their meeting offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father.

‘I love it’: Trump Jnr emails reveal delight at offer of Kremlin help

This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump - helped along by Aras and Emin.

What do you think is the best way to handle this information and would you be able to speak to Emin about it directly?

I can also send this info to your father via Rhona, but it is ultra sensitive so wanted to send to you first.

Thanks Rob I appreciate that. I am on the road at the moment but perhaps I just speak to Emin first. Seems we have some time and if it’s what you say I love it especially later in the summer. Could we do a call first thing next week when I am back?

Best,

Don

Hope all is well

Emin asked that I schedule a meeting with you and The Russian government attorney who is flying over from Moscow for this Thursday.

I believe you are aware of the meeting - and so wondered if 3pm or later on Thursday works for you?

I assume it would be at your office.
