Trump Mistakes

Rinat Akhmetshin confirmed his participation to The Associated Press on Friday.


Akhmetshin said Trump Jr. asked the attorney for evidence of illicit money flowing to the Democratic National Committee, but Veselnitskaya said she didn’t have that information. She said the Trump campaign would need to research it more, and after that Trump Jr. lost interest, according to Akhmetshin.

“They couldn’t wait for the meeting to end,” Akhmetshin said.


In reports this week, Akhmetshin has been identified as a former Russian counterintelligence officer. He denied ever serving in such a capacity.

“That is not correct,” Akhmetshin said. He said he served in the Soviet Army from 1986 to 1988 after he was drafted but was not trained in spy tradecraft.


Akhmetshin said the attorney brought with her a plastic folder with printed-out documents. He said he was unaware of the content of the documents or whether they were provided by the Russian government, and it was unclear whether she left the materials with the Trump associates.

Akhmetshin said the meeting was “not substantive” and he “actually expected more serious” discussion.

“I never thought this would be such a big deal to be honest,” he told AP.

He's in a meeting with someone who was brought in from Russia to provide useful information for the Trump presidential campaign - a meeting in which senior people in the Trump campaign are also present - and he doesn't think it's a big deal? Suuuuure.

Just what evidence did Feselnitskaya give the Cabal? Surely they didn't get her all the way over here before finding out she had something they wanted.

One of the many mistakes the Trump Cabal has made is involving too many outsiders in their crooked affairs.

There are a lot of questions to be asked. And a lot of people to be giving answers.

I see suggestions that Goldstone (the go-between for Junior and Veselnitskaya) is "on vacation".
Goldstone’s Facebook profile says he is still based in New York. Reportedly, much of his gilded lifestyle is funded by Russian money: Agalarov is an aspiring pop star who performed the interval act at Eurovision when it was held in Baku in 2012. Reportedly his billionaire father has offered Goldstone near limitless roubles to try to make his son a star.

He is still on Oui 2’s page as co-founder and president of the company. Last year he was a judge at the Miss Universe pageant but at the moment he is taking time out to travel across Europe. Although Facebook posts suggest he might not be travelling by yacht but by passenger ferry, and the nightlife is low key and local rather than superclubs.

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

UPDATE 8/1/17:  Leaked: Trump dictated the first Junior response.
