When the Steele Dossier was released months ago, it sent shock waves across the internet and throughout the media. While those on the left tended to believe that it was potentially legitimate, given that it came from a known and respected spy, those on the right refuted it. It’s easy to refute something when there is no corroboration of events, but over the past several months, more and more information has come to the forefront that further corroborates the story told by Christopher Steele in his dossier.
Early today, we reported on a meeting that Donald Trump Jr. has confirmed to have taken place between himself and Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya. The meeting was apparently sought by the Trump campaign after it was learned that Veselnitskaya had potentially damaging information to share on Hillary Clinton and the DNC.
Now, it is being learned that the much talked about meeting between Trump Jr. and Veselnitskaya was set up by publicist Rob Goldstone. Goldstone told the Washington Post that the meeting was setup on behalf of a Russian client named Emin Agalarov.
Agalarov is a Russian entertainer who has been photographed with Trump in the past, and has even included Trump in one of his music videos. Agalarov’s father, Aras (Araz) is a billionaire Russian developer, who sponsored the 2013 Miss Universe pageant. Both Agalarovs have publicly boasted about their relationship with President Trump in the past.
The more interesting tidbit of information here though, is that Aras Agalarov is mentioned in the Steele Dossier, on page 27, where it states:
“The two St Petersburg figures cited believed an Azeri business figure, Araz AGALAROV (with offices in Baku and London) had been closely involved with TRUMP in Russia and would know most of the details of what the Republican presidential candidate had got up to there.”
Additionally, Vladimir Putin has a very close relationship to both Agalarovs, thus this meeting, which took place back in June of 2016 between Trump Jr. and Veselnitskaya on behalf of Emin Agalarov, becomes quite intriguing. President Trump has denied knowing about the meeting, which is very difficult to believe, and before recently, Trump Jr. denied any connection with Russian businessmen.
The fact that this meeting took place while the Trump team has been trying to deny it, makes us wonder exactly what they are trying to hide. Now that several individuals have come forward with information on this meeting, it will be interesting to see exactly what they know about the discussions which took place.
