Although the supposed collusion story surrounding the Trump Tower meeting has already been debunked, it went down in flames after Rob Goldstone delivered an exclusive interview this weekend. Goldstone, the English publicist who sent Donald Trump Jr. an email about Russian dirt on Hillary Clinton was inside the conference room and witnessed the entire June meeting.
Breitbart News previously “reported that three Russian participants at the meeting have ties to the controversial Fusion GPS outfit, and two have confirmed ties to Hillary Clinton.”
Adding, “The Russia collusion conspiracy was sparked by the dossier produced by Fusion GPS, which was paid for its anti-Trump work by Trump’s primary political opponents, namely Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC), via the Perkins Coie law firm.”
But, Goldstone said not only did “he not witness any attempts to steal an election, as the collusion conspiracy tale goes,” he blasted the “inane nonsense” of the presentation, mostly conducted by Natalia Veselnitskaya, an attorney lobbyist fighting the Magnitsky Act.
Goldstone said that he told Trump Jr. he was “embarrassed” for setting up the nearly 25-minute confab in the first place.
During the interview on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” Goldstone did say he wrote about “some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary” as “part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump” to Trump Jr.
“I didn’t know what I was talking about,” Goldstone stated, explaining the email was “puffery” deliberately designed to get Trump Jr.’s attention.
“I wrote this in two and a half, three minutes to someone who is a private citizen, whose father at that time held no elected office and whose attention I was trying to get,” Goldstone said, adding, “And I used my own puffery, as we call it in England. It was a puffed-up email.”
Many reports have indicated that the entire meeting was a setup, from beginning to end.
“Three Russian participants at the meeting have ties to the controversial Fusion GPS outfit, and two have confirmed ties to Hillary Clinton. The Russia collusion conspiracy was sparked by the dossier produced by Fusion GPS, which was paid for its anti-Trump work by Trump’s primary political opponents, namely Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) via the Perkins Coie law firm.
Also, email logs brought to light show numerous emails were exchanged between a Clinton associate, Fusion GPS and Trump Tower participants, with the subjects of some of those emails listing the Magnitsky Act, which sanctions Russian officials and was by all accounts the very topic of the Trump Tower meeting.”
At least one Russian participant admitted to personally knowing Hillary Clinton since the late 1990s, and that he “knew” some people on Hillary’s campaign.
“Another Russian attendee, a translator, testified that he was previously an interpreter for Hillary herself as well as for John Kerry and Barack Obama.
Questions are also raised by a timeline showing numerous personal meetings between Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson and Trump Tower participants. A Clinton associate, Ed Lieberman, was listed as being present at one and possibly two of those meetings.”
In fact, “Russian-born Washington lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin, who was present at the meeting, and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, who led the Trump Tower meeting along with Akhmetshin, both worked with Fusion GPS on a case involving the Magnitsky Act.”
“According to testimony, Akhmetshin, Veselnitskaya and Samochornov held several dinner meetings, including during the time of the June 9, 2016 Trump Tower confab.
As part of his interview with the Senate Judiciary Committee last August, Fusion GPS’s Simpson described having several dinners with Veselnitskaya. Simpson said that he had dinner with Veselnitskaya on June 8, 2016, in New York and two days later in Washington, DC. Simpson also recalled having a dinner with Veselnitskaya in “probably 2015.”
Although he says he saw the Russian attorney the day before the Trump Tower meeting, the same day as the meeting and the day after, he claimed that the two did not discuss the Trump Tower get together on any of those occasions.
In her own written response to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Veselnitskaya denied meeting Simpson on June 8 or June 10. She also denied informing Simpson of the Trump Tower meeting.
Email logs provide a paper trail connection between Lieberman, Fusion GPS, and two of the Russian participants in the Trump Tower confab.”
The testimony and exhibits concerning the meeting were released in January, but most of it remains largely unreported by the mainstream media.
Samochornov, the translator, also has links to Clinton. “Samochornov testified that he was previously an interpreter for Clinton, John Kerry, and Barack Obama.”
Like all other witnesses who have spoken publicly, Goldstone, said there was no ‘dirt’ delivered on Clinton. Many Americans understand, like all of the so-called collusion ‘evidence,’ this turned out to be another fabricated claim by liberals.
In fact, most agree that democrats are like a person stealing as fast as he can, while pointing at others and screaming ‘thief!’ They have no imagination, and only accuse opponents of what they are doing themselves.
