Former Soviet counterintelligence officer joined Trump Jr. at meeting: Report

Democratic operative James Carville's 1992 slogan in behalf of Bill Clinton - "It's the economy, stupid" - still resonates. Perhaps a moment will come when he feels free to talk about the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign in a similar way, and we'll be able to piece together the story of the Kremlin's hopes and fears for that race. Alex Jones at InfoWars declares that Veselnitskaya is a mole planted by George Soros, and the Bannonites at Breitbart are in full-throated baying.

HORSLEY: Trump and Macron shook hands several times for photographers today without the clenched teeth of their first meeting two months ago.

He doesn't want that. The idea quickly drifted upward to some of the most influential figures in right-wing media, and then ultimately to President Trump himself, who referenced some of its underpinnings during a Thursday press conference in France as he attempted to explain away his son's meeting with the Russian lawyer. Assange has insisted that his source was not a nation state.

In his first public interview about the meeting, Akhmetshin said he accompanied Veselnitskaya to Trump Tower where they met an interpreter. He said he showed up in jeans and a T-shirt.

She and Akhmetshin were working at the time defending a Russian businessman from federal charges of money laundering in a suit that was settled early this year.

What I'm saying is these were minor players, and I think that is important, because it was irrelevant information by irrelevant people.

One other detail of the meeting Trump Jr conveniently forgot to mention earlier this week. After that, Trump Jr. lost interest, according to Akhmetshin.

Popular Video This young teenage singer was shocked when Keith Urban invited her on stage at his concert. He mopped the floor with her in the struggle over Syria.

Schultz said the amendment was intentionally drafted with extreme specificity. She has to have staff meetings to learn how to appear spontaneous. She is as disciplined as her husband and Trump are undisciplined. Initially, Trump Jr. reported that only he, his associates, and Veselnitskaya were present.

McKenna's political career has included a run for governor.

Asked about Akhmetshin's participation, Manafort spokesman Jason Maloni declined comment.

Durbin on Friday also discussed a Senate hearing this week for Christopher Wray, Trump's nominee for FBI director.

If this is the best defense the Trump team has to offer, the White House is in very serious trouble indeed.

The meeting was aired by the Russia 24 TV channel. We do know that the "dangle" offered by Russia was Russian help to attack Hillary Clinton with dirt dug up by Russia's intelligence.

"Today's report that a former Russian counterintelligence officer was also present during the meeting with Donald Trump, Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort, if accurate, adds another deeply disturbing fact about this secret meeting", Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said in a statement.

"I never thought this would be such a big deal to be honest", he said. Some of you have even followed through with subscriptions, which is especially gratifying. "I mean, how many people are not going to take the meeting?" The Kremlin ultimately likes predictability and is itself predictable. "Let's be the smart people not the stupid people", he said. So bad that it made my elementary school art look like masterworks But it was enough to get Julius Rosenberg electrocuted.

Agalarov is a well-known musician and client of Rob Goldstone, who arranged the meeting between Trump Jr. and Veselnitskaya.

As a former staffer put it: "When it comes to the kids and close family, I'm not really sure what the hell is going on". "So she was here because of Lynch". He is not the mullahs in Iran or North Korea's Kim Jong Un. If that person has Kremlin connections, it is even worse, but let's give young Donald a break on the migration aspects of this one.
