A House Committee met with witnesses from the Trump Tower meeting. The meeting in questions was reportedly between Trump jr., Jared Kushner, and certain Russian parties. The supposed purpose of this meeting was to collect intel, known by Democrats as ‘opposition research’, on Hillary Clinton.
The moment this subject is brought up to liberals they immediately declare this supposed meeting as proof of Russian collusion by the Trump campaign. It’s obvious that the Clinton-loving bunch will never accept that Hillary lost because the American people didn’t want her.
It will be interesting to see what the Committee concludes from these interviews and we can’t WAIT to compare their findings to reports made by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Will this, just like every other attempt to tarnish Trump, blow up in the Democrat’s faces? That seems to be the ongoing theme nowadays with Democrats. They scream foul and uncover their own dirt. We’ll see.
The House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday interviewed a key witness to the infamous June 2016 Trump Tower meeting.
Committee investigators spoke behind closed doors with Anatoli Samochornov, a former State Department contractor who attended the meeting as a translator for Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya.
Donald Trump Jr. accepted the June 9, 2016 meeting after an associate offered him damaging information on Hillary Clinton.
Veselnitskaya, a colorful Moscow-based lawyer, attended the meeting with Samochornov, a Russian-American lobbyist named Rinat Akhmetshin, and Ike Kaveladze, a business associate for the Agalarov family, which has done business with the Trumps and first requested the Trump Tower session.
Trump Jr. attended alongside Jared Kushner and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort. The real estate executive is slated to be interviewed by the House committee next week.
The meeting is at the center of multiple investigations into Russian interference in the presidential campaign. The House panel is also looking into the conclave, though Republicans and Democrats see it as potentially significant for different reasons.
Republicans are interested in Veselnitskaya and Akhmetshin’s links to Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm behind the Trump dossier. The two Russians worked alongside Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson on a consulting project aimed at undercutting the Magnitsky Act, a sanctions law fiercely opposed by the Kremlin.
Simpson was with Veselnitskaya on the morning of the Trump Tower meeting as well as just after. But he told the House committee earlier this month that he had no idea that Veselnitskaya was meeting with the Trump campaign. House committee Republicans also wonder whether any details of the Trump Tower meeting made their way into the dossier…
