Former Trump Aide Tears Apart House Committee

  • Trump Tower Meeting Who Was All There

To the editor: During the last presidential campaign, Trump asserted that he could go out on Fifth Avenue in New York City and shoot someone, and people would still support him.

Anatoly Samochornov and Rinat Akhmetshin - were identified by news outlets Friday as having accompanied Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya to the meeting, which Donald Trump Jr. originally said was just to talk about a Russian ban on Americans adopting Russian children.

"Trump Jr. does not yet face any official allegations of legal wrongdoing, but he and the White House have scrambled to contain the political fallout from the controversy", The Beast explained.

Michael Caputo, a political communications expert from East Aurora who was an aide to the Trump campaign, appeared before a U.S. House committee Friday to deny he knew of any contacts between the campaign and Russian Federation, something the committee is investigating.

President Donald Trump's campaign digital director, Brad Parscale, said Friday he will meet with the House Intelligence Committee later this month. No additional names have been provided.

"I never thought this would be such a big deal, to be honest", he said.

The president's eldest son has played down meeting, which took place on 9 June 2016, since it was reported this week. "If it's what you say, I love it, especially later in the summer", he emailed back to Goldstone.

The mediator said the discussion was part of a plot by the Russian government to assist the Republican candidate, Donald Trump. Magnitsky was a whistleblower who alleged that officials in Russian President Vladimir Putin's government stole $230 million.

Fox News has not yet responded to questions of why the website is censoring comments about Donald Trump Jr.'s emails regarding meeting the Russian lawyer.

The meeting was set up by Rob Goldstone, a British music publicist for Russian pop star Emin Agalarov.

"This could be a good issue to expose how the D.N.C.is accepting bad money", The AP quoted Akhmetshin recalling her saying.

The slow drip of information since then has been another fascinating study in the failure of the Trump administration to be transparent and truthful. Trump Jr. has said he is willing to testify voluntarily, but Grassley said he would be subpoenaed if need be.

"What really matters to the Democrats is that I know Donald Trump", he said.

On Sunday, The President's son released a statement saying that the lawyer said there was information that people linked to Russian Federation had funded the Democratic National Committee and aided the Democratic candidate Clinton, a position that Akhmetshin supported in his statement.

I believe there was nothing inappropriate in hearing out a Russian source with probable Kremlin connections who claimed to have information showing collusion between Hillary Clinton and/or the Democratic Party and the Russian government. Russian Federation denies the allegations, and Trump says there was no collusion.
