Donald Trump Jr. admitted that he and his father had a discussion about last summer's secret meeting between key campaign officials and the Russians, but he refused to provide details of that conversation with the House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday.
"I don't believe you can shield communications between individuals merely by having an attorney present", he told reporters.
Trump Jr. said he didn't tell the president about the June 2016 meeting between Trump campaign officials and several Russian operatives when it happened, and he declined to say what he told his father after the meeting was disclosed to the public this year.
Despite the White House denials, Russian Federation probe investigators have pushed hard to learn all possible details about exactly what Mr. Trump knew about the Veselnitskaya meeting.
But Schiff questioned whether that was a valid reason to not tell Congress about the conversations.

Michael Flynn said Russian Federation sanctions would be 'ripped up'
According to Cummings's letter, the witness said he met Alex Copson , Flynn's former business associate, at an inaugural event. The texts were timestamped as being sent just as President Trump was delivering his Inaugural Address, the whistleblower said.
'Common ground' theme in testy US-Pakistan ties
Pakistan is confident that the United States will amend its South Asia strategy announced by President Trump in August this year. However sources said the Pakistani leadership ruled out the possibility of the same.
Mueller is investigating whether where was any coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin during the 2016 presidential election, which Trump won, and whether Trump himself obstructed justice when he fired former FBI Director James Comey, who was also investigating alleged collusion. The White House has said the president was involved in drafting an early statement saying the meeting primarily concerned a Russian adoption program.
The interview with President Donald Trump's eldest son comes as both the House and Senate intelligence panels are investigating a meeting that Trump Jr. and other Trump campaign officials held with Russians past year. It was then that Trump Jr., per the sources, said Clinton's testimony was not the same: she was testifying about the 2012 attack in Benghazi where four Americans were killed. "That's not the goal of attorney-client privilege".
Trump Jr. avoided reporters and entered the Capitol through a back door before facing more than eight hours of questions from the House Intelligence Committee. And whatever was said between father and son after emails concerning the meeting became public would certainly be relevant to understanding the role the president might have played in orchestrating the response to the damaging reports about Trump Jr.'s effort to obtain Clinton "dirt".
The sources tell ABC News that the committee's questions focused on what information was exchanged during the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting in New York City, and the president's oldest son indicated the short gathering did not produce any information and ended quickly.
