Trump Tower Meeting - Person 7 & 8 Just Identified?

The meeting was also attended by Donald Trump Jr., Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, and President Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

News did not identify the former intelligence officer, who it said had denied any current ties to Russian spy agencies but had served in the Soviet military. CNN also reported on Friday that a representative of Emin and Aras Agalarov, the Russian family who asked Goldstone to arrange the meeting, may have been there.

In a Friday morning press release, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi called Trump Jr.'s meeting "a desecration of our democracy not seen since Watergate".

He adds that Veselnitskaya "left a document behind" after the meeting with Donald Trump Jr.

Although he denies having any current ties to Russian intelligence agencies, Akhmetshin, a Russian-born American who had served in the Soviet military before he emigrated to the USA and still holds dual citizenship, is suspected by US security agencies of maintaining previous ties to Russian intelligence.

"If it's what you say I love it", the younger Trump wrote in an email to Mr. Goldstone prior to meeting with Ms. Veselnitskaya and company.

Trump Jr.'s attorney, Alan Futerfas, told Fox News he could not confirm Samochornov was at the meeting, but said one of the two other attendees was a USA citizen.

"[Trump Jr.] clearly asked me if I had any financial records to back and support the idea that some funds from illegal sources went to DNC, went to Hilary Clinton", she told NBC News.

Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said Democrats will push the Russian Federation collusion narrative for as long as they can because they have no message.

Did Donald Jr.'s dad know about his June 9 meeting at that time? Trump Jr. published an email chain between himself and British entertainment executive Rob Goldstone setting up the meeting, which Goldstone attended. Trump told reporters, in an exchange that was originally off-the-record, but later made public by the White House. Even more interesting that Trump Jr forgot the presence of a former Soviet intelligence agent, given how much efforts by Russian intel programs have dominated headlines in relation to his father's electoral victory.

'I don't believe what the Russians say and given the changing stories from the United States side it's hard to believe what they say as well'. The group spent $120,000 to lobby Congress on the issue a year ago, with $10,000 of those funds going to Akhmetshin, according to lobbying records.
