    Washington Week [#5702] As intelligence agencies and Congress continue to investigate the scope of Russia's efforts to meddle in the presidential election, a newly revealed meeting among President Trump's son, son-in-law, a top adviser and a "Russian government attorney" in June 2016 is raising new questions about potential collusion. Emails released by Donald Trump Jr. on Tuesday detail the meeting that was set up to provide "information that would incriminate Hillary [Clinton] and her dealings with Russia" as "part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump."
    The president has defended his son's decision to meet with the attorney as standard opposition research, but the younger Mr. Trump is facing criticism from lawmakers in both parties who believe law enforcement should have been consulted. The Senate Judiciary Committee is asking Trump Jr. to testify next week as the cloud of questions about Russia continues to follow the Trump administration.
    *Plus, Senate Republicans released not one but two new plans to replace the Affordable Care Act. Does the GOP have the votes to pass either measure?
    *Robert Costa will discuss new details of the Russia investigation and how it is impacting the rest of the legislative agenda in Washington with:
    Mark Mazzetti of The New York Times
    Ashley Parker of The Washington Post
    Michael Scherer of TIME Magazine
