So just who is this character Rob Goldstone? The man who set up the meeting with Donald Jr for the latest Russia melt down for one. If the pictures of him which I include are any representation, not much of a guy. I’ll let you opine on this latest kerfuffle with Donald Trump Jr. I for one was never in favor of Trump’s kids being so involved in the campaign and now the government. Anyone with any sense knows that politics is a blood sport and not for the uninitiated. And that is what they were and are. So the price will be paid. Oxygen has now been given to the Russia Russia Russia thing just when the story seemed to have started to fade. Mueller will have a field day. So let’s go back and take a look at the man who initiated this meeting.
More information leaked out today on Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya.
Veselnitskaya told NBC News on Monday she was not with the Kremlin as was reported by The New York Times. (So much for that)
So why was Veselnitskaya hanging out with Obama officials just days after her meeting with Donald Trump Jr.?
And why was Veselnitskaya given a privileged seat up front during the Congressional hearing?
UPDATE: Veselnitskaya’s facebook page shows she was in Washington DC on June 14, 2016.
The information “would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father,” reads one of the emails from Rob Goldstone, who acted as an intermediary to set up the meeting.
“This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump,” wrote Goldstone.
In a June 3, 2016, email released on Twitter, referring to the information on Clinton, Trump Jr. told Goldstone: “If it’s what you say I love it especially later in the summer.”
In another email, Goldstone suggested the information about Clinton could be given to then-candidate Donald Trump through Rhona Graff, his longtime assistant.
“I can also send this info to your father via Rhona, but it is ultra sensitive so wanted to send to you first,” Goldstone wrote.
Rob Goldstone, the man who set up the meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya, has quite the fun social media presence including a video of him singing and dancing and a photo of him rocking a hat that says “CUNTY.”
Goldstone is a former tabloid journalist who now runs a public relations firm for musicians. One of these clients is Emin Agalarov, who is connected to President Trump and reportedly once tried sending prostitutes to Trump’s hotel room in Moscow. Trump Jr. released emails Tuesday between him and Goldstone that arranged the June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower.
