President Donald Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr, has declined to discuss with lawmakers a conversation he had with his father about emails related to a June 2016 meeting he attended with Trump associates and Russians, a congressional panel member says.

Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the US House of Representatives Intelligence Committee investigating allegations of Russian interference in last year's US election, said Trump Jr answered the "overwhelming majority" of questions from committee members in his hours of testimony.

But Trump Jr claimed attorney-client privilege in declining to respond to queries about that discussion with his father because a lawyer was in the room when it took place.

"In my view there is no attorney-client privilege that protects a discussion between father and son," Schiff told reporters after the closed-door testimony had ended.
