Burying Junior - Part 2

And I have no doubt they - as well as Mueller - will. That boy is toast. He's arrogant and has a big mouth. He can't fool anybody.
In both New York Times stories, however, Trump Jr. only spoke of being asked to attend the meeting by "an acquaintance." In a statement provided to BuzzFeed News, Trump Jr. said the acquaintance was someone he got to know during the 2013 Miss Universe pageant, which took place in Moscow. Later Sunday, the Washington Post reported that Rob Goldstone — a music publicist — told the Post that he was that acquaintance.


A lot is still unknown or unclear, stories were even shifting over the weekend, and Goldstone did not immediately respond to a request to talk with BuzzFeed News about the situation. Here's what we do know.

Not a lot beyond his music connections in Russia, as it turns out, and his travel itenerary around the infamous Jr-Russian attorney meeting. But I thought this was interesting:
On Sunday evening, [Goldstone's] Oui 2 Entertainment locked its Twitter account, but not before BuzzFeed News captured most of the company's tweets.
They also report that Trump appeared in a video by one of Goldstone's Russian artist friends.  I'm going to assume that Mueller et al. are going to want to talk to Mr. Goldstone.  How much money will it take to get him to commit perjury?  And what tRump flunky can be trusted to arrange it?  Or will that be done on the Russian side of the collusion?

...but hey, do what you will anyway.
