The Man Who Set Up Trump Jr.’s Meeting With Kremlin Lawyer Just Came Forward

The Man Who Set Up Trump Jr.’s Meeting With Kremlin Lawyer Just Came Forward

 

A significant amount of evidence indicates that President Donald Trump has personal connections to the Russian oligarch who hired a middleman to set up the meeting between Donald Trump Jr. with a Russian lawyer, as per a New York Times bombshell report published this weekend.

Today, music publicist Rob Goldstone told the AP that he arranged the meeting on behalf of pop star Emin Agalarov, the son of Putin-linked Russian-Azerbaijani oligarch Aras Alagarov with whom he brought the Miss Universe Pageant to Moscow’s Crocus Hall in 2013.

Donald Trump Jr.’s shifting stories elevated the report from a bombshell to probable cause that a serious election crime has been admitted. President Trump launched a ten tweet storm this morning and not a single one addressed his son’s misdeeds, which strongly appear to violate federal election law.

This photo proves conclusively that Donald Trump knows Rob Goldstone, the agent to Emin Agalarov who admitted to the Washington Post that he arranged the meeting. (The complete set of photos is below.)

Rob Goldstone publicly posted a cropped copy of the cover photo of this story onto his Facebook page also this selfie the following day, which confirms his personal acquaintance with Donald Trump.

Donald Trump Jr. denied that his father knew about the secret meeting with a Russian agent offering stolen emails, but changed his story about the meeting from one day to the next.

Later, Trump Jr. shockingly admitted that it was “clear to me that this was the true agenda all along and that the claims of potentially helpful information were a pretext for the meeting.”

Now, he’s telling the AP that he “had to listen” to the allegations against Clinton, along with the campaign’s other top two officials, one of whom was locked in a heated political battle for convention delegates and dropped everything on the very same day the AP reported that Trump Campaign launched its major fundraising drive, and it was way behind.

Furthermore, Trump Jr. said that the unregistered Russian agent brought up sanctions that Putin wants to be dropped; specifically, those instituted in 2012 when Congress adopted the Magnitsky Act in response to the mysterious death of Russian corruption whistleblower Sergei Magnitsky.

This story is the first major smoking gun that appears to indicate that the Trump Campaign actively colluded with Russia.

It’s illegal for a campaign to knowingly solicit anything of value from a foreign agent, person or government under the FEC Act.

Rob Goldstone is Emin Agalarov’s manager, whose father is the Russian oligarch who arranged Miss Universe Moscow. He was a Miss USA 2013 pageant judge, according to the Las Vegas Sun, and he worked as a judge for the Miss Universe 2017 preliminaries earlier this year.

Donald Trump definitely met Rob Goldstone, and his client Emin Agalarov — with whom he appeared in a music video (below) — and his oligarch father, Aras Agalarov in Las Vegas, where they were featured in photos of themselves working to close the deal to bring Miss Universe 2013 to Moscow along with the event announcement.

Pop star and social media personality Emin Agalarov’s father, Aras, is a Russian oligarch real estate developer nicknamed “the Trump of Russia.” Vladimir Putin gave Aras Agalarov an Order of Honor award right before Miss Universe began in Moscow the next month.

It turns out that the Russian lawyer that Jared Kushner, campaign chairman Paul Manafort, and Donald Trump Jr. met with, Nataliya Veselnitskaya, was already subject of a 2016 criminal complaint about her other activities illegally lobbying Congress and acting as an unregistered foreign agent seeking to influence US policy.

As an unregistered agent of the Russian state, Veselnitskaya could have carried out any number of other covert activities during her time in New York and DC.

These photos prove that both Donald Trump and his personal lawyer Michael D. Cohen both have a personal relationship with Kremlin-linked oligarchs and their agent Rob Goldstone, who set up a meeting to allegedly offer information about “purported illegal campaign contributions to the Democratic National Committee.”

Trump will declare North Korea a state sponsor of terror

Trump will declare North Korea a state sponsor of terror

President Trump said Monday that he will designate North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism, a move designed to further isolate the nation for its pursuit of nuclear weapons.

Trump said the move will impose further penalties on Pyongyang and result in the “highest level” of sanctions ever placed on the country. He added that the designation will be formalized Tuesday.

Trump said the decision “should have happened years ago” and will ramp up pressure on the “murderous regime” to “end its unlawful nuclear and ballistic missile development.”

The decision returns North Korea to a list it was removed from in 2008 to ease nuclear talks with the George W. Bush administration.

Trump’s announcement comes days after his return from a five-nation tour of Asia, which focused on curbing Pyongyang’s nuclear ambitions.

White House officials telegraphed the move before Trump’s departure.

National security adviser H.R. McMaster told reporters earlier this month that the killing of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s half-brother at a Malaysian airport played into the decision. The half-brother, Kim Jong Nam, was killed with a banned nerve agent.

North Korea will join Iran, Sudan and Syria on the State Department’s list of terror sponsors.

The designation allows the U.S. to cut off foreign assistance, weapons sales, commercial exports and financial transactions with Pyongyang.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson conceded the “practical effects may be limited” because Pyongyang is already heavily sanctioned by the U.S. government.

But he called the move “very symbolic” of the U.S. desire to increase pressure on Kim Jong Un in an effort to persuade him to drop his nuclear program.

“We still hope for diplomacy,” Tillerson told reporters during a surprise appearance at the White House. “This is only going to get worse until you’re ready to come and talk.”

Trump had been under pressure from members of Congress to slap the designation on North Korea.

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-Calif.) applauded the administration for relisting North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism.

“Over the past year alone, Kim Jong Un and his regime brazenly assassinated his brother with a chemical weapon and brutally tortured Otto Warmbier, leading directly to his tragic death,” he said in a statement, referring to the American student who died after his release from custody in North Korea.

“These aren’t isolated incidents, but are examples of a consistent pattern of terror,” Royce said, adding that Pyongyang’s push to develop nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles threatens global security.

Fox News Host Thinks Its Possible To Keep Roy Moore Away From The Senate (TWEETS/VIDEO)

Fox News Host Thinks Its Possible To Keep Roy Moore Away From The Senate (TWEETS/VIDEO)

 

On Sunday morning, Alabama’s largest newspapers ran a front-page editorial pronouncing Roy Moore unfit for the Senate on a number of counts–not the least of which was the numerous allegations that he molested and improperly pursued women and girls over several years.

Moore’s reaction was predictable. First, he threw red meat to his supporters by reminding them that his Democratic opponent, Doug Jones, supported abortion.

He then reverted to what has become his standard line–the allegations are a witch hunt orchestrated by Democrats and establishment Republicans to keep him out.

Well, by Moore’s definition, Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett is a full-on, bleeding-heart liberal. After all, Jarrett believes that if Moore wins in December, the Senate shouldn’t seat him until it looks into the allegations.

Jarrett has been responsible for some of the worst recent moments on the fair and balanced network. He believes that Hillary Clinton should have faced a grand jury over her emails, believes any collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign was legal, and thinks James Comey broke the law by leaking his memo of the now-infamous conversation in which Donald Trump told him to lay off Michael Flynn. All of these statements have been called out as BS by other legal analysts.

It initially looked like more of the same when the allegations against Moore first broke. Jarrett said that he was skeptical of them because they were reported by The Washington Post after that paper endorsed Jones. But as more and more women have come forward, Jarrett has become a vocal opponent of Moore. On Wednesday, he told Sean Hannity that from his perspective, the accusers’ stories were credible because of their detail.

On Sunday’s edition of “Fox & Friends,” Jarrett dropped a bombshell–he believes that Moore should not be allowed to take his seat until it is determined that he is fit to serve in that august body.

 

Jarrett was discussing the furor over Al Franken’s sexual misconduct in 2006 with hosts Pete Hegseth, Abby Huntsman, and Ed Henry when the discussion turned to Moore. While noting that the Senate Ethics Committee would potentially be investigating the incident even though it took place before Franken was in the Senate, Henry wondered if the committee would do the same with Moore.

Jarrett believes that “it’s a sure bet” the Ethics Committee will look into the allegations. But he went further than that. He believes that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the Senate Republicans should not seat Moore until the completion of that review.

And what if the committee finds there’s a there there?

“If the committee says this man is not fit to sit in the U. S. Senate, and I happen to think that his the case, then he would never be seated.”

Henry cried that it would open a Pandora’s box, raising the prospect that every Senator could face an ethics investigation. Hegseth agreed, wondering how it would look if “six people in a distant capital,” rather than “millions of voters,” decided who was fit to serve in the Senate.

Jarrett pointed out that under Senate rules, it is “within their latitude, authority, and discretion” to refuse to seat an elected Senator. He was referring to Article One, Section 5 of the Constitution, which makes each chamber of Congress “the Judge of the Elections, Returns, and Qualifications of its own Members.”

Admittedly, this situation has taken us into uncharted waters. At this point, the allegations against Moore seem to be reaching the proportions of those against Bill Cosby–far too many women have come forward for them to be credibly dismissed. No one wants a serial sexual harasser and pedophile in the Senate.

However, as much as the thought of saying “Senator Roy Moore” turns my stomach, merely refusing to seat him could potentially open a can of worms. In 1967, the House refused to seat Congressman Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. amid a series of scandals. Powell sued, and the case eventually made it to the Supreme Court.

Ultimately, the Supreme Court ruled in Powell v. McCormack that the House could not deny Powell his seat, since he had been lawfully elected and met the constitutional requirements to serve in the House. The Court found that since the House erred by excluding him by a simple majority, rather than moving to expel him with a two-thirds majority.

Based on that precedent, if I were McConnell, I would let Moore be seated, but deny him any committee assignments pending an Ethics Committee investigation. If the committee finds there’s a there there, Moore should be expelled–an idea that Cory Gardner of Colorado has already proposed. In the absence of something we haven’t heard or seen, it shouldn’t be too hard to find 60 votes to expel him.

Based on Moore’s current line, he would likely scream that the Senate is trying to overturn an election. But he’s dead wrong. If done properly, the Senate would be well within its rights in booting out a manifestly unfit person from its ranks.

‘I Should Have Left Them In Jail’ (Trump’s Juicy TWEET)

‘I Should Have Left Them In Jail’ (TWEET)

 

President Donald Trump has regularly shown that he will lash out against people he feels do not show him the proper respect. Go ahead and add three players of the UCLA Men’s Basketball program to that list, all thanks to LaVar Ball, who is the father of one of those players, as well as our President’s tiny ego.

The three basketball players were arrested in China for shoplifting sunglasses. One of the players, LiAngelo Ball, is part of a high profile basketball family. His father, LaVar, had some controversial words concerning the President’s role in bringing his son home.

Appearing on ESPN Friday, LaVar was asked about the President’s role in keeping his son out of jail. LaVar responded in his typical braggadocio:

What was he over there for? Don’t tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out.”

In reality, the three athletes never actually went to jail. Trump spoke with the Chinese President Xi Jinping after hearing of their predicament, and they were allowed to return to the United States. They have since been suspended by the UCLA athletic program.

However, LaVar’s comments to ESPN appeared to strike a raw nerve with President Trump. He posted the following to Twitter, again making use of his newfound 280 character limit:

His tweet reads:

Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail!”

Just… unpack that.

The President of the United States is picking a fight with three college students, all because the father of one of those students brushed off the President’s role in keeping his son out of a Chinese jail for shoplifting sunglasses.

Meanwhile, the former President of the United States was apparently born in Kenya and is a secret Muslim spy. His handpicked predecessor is the leader of a tightly knit criminal conspiracy (and a WOMAN!). She also apparently raped children in the basement of a pizza parlor.
