As most of you have probably read by now, there was a secret meeting that took place between Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner, publicist Rob Goldstone, Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya and Russian Lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin on June 9th, 2016 at Trump Tower in NYC. This has all been confirmed from emails released by Donald Trump Jr., who admitted to taking part in the meeting, setup by Rob Goldstone on behalf of Emin Agalarov and his billionaire father, Aras Agalarov. Trump Jr. attended the meeting hoping to receive information from Veselnitskaya, on the behalf of the Agalarov’s, that would be damaging to Hillary Clinton and the DNC. This information was explained by Goldstone to Trump Jr. as being sent from the Russian government in hopes of helping then candidate Donald Trump.
Trump Jr. has claimed that no damaging information was provided to the campaign at this meeting, but IR.net has discovered something disturbing — signs that potentially point to a second meeting that took place a week later on June 17, 2016, this time perhaps with an additional one or two individuals, including Irina Agalarova (mother of Emin and wife of Aras), and signs that many of these individuals next headed off to London the day prior to the historic Brexit vote. Note that Russia has been accused of trying to interfere with this referendum vote as well.
While it’s far from a foregone conclusion to say that a second meeting definitely took place, you can decide for yourself after reviewing the evidence below. Let’s first take a look at a travel timeline for several individuals involved, keeping in mind that the meeting which the Trump administration has now confirmed took place, did so on June 9, 2016 at 4:00 PM ET.
Rob Goldstone’s Travel Timeline: According to Goldstone’s Facebook profile, he left New York for Montreal on June 14, but then returned again on June 16. He had dinner with Irina Agalarova (Emin’s mother / Aras’ wife), as well a Russian translator named Yana Gorokhova, who currently resides in Moscow (more on her below) at TAO Downtown in NYC on June 17. Goldstone then departed NYC on June 22 for London (just prior to the Brexit vote), before returning back to NYC on June 27 for a third visit.
Irina Agalarova’s Travel Timeline: According to Agalarova’s Instagram account, she was apparently walking around in Midtown NYC on June 17, and just so happened to be right in the vicinity of Trump Tower. She posted 3 photos of her time in NYC on Instagram, dated June 17, 2016 (seen below).
All three locations were within 0.3 miles of Trump Tower, and Trump Tower actually sits right in the walking path of these three locations (New York City Center, Burlington House, and Grand Army Plaza) — see map below.
Yana Gorokhova’s Travel Timeline: Note that Gorokhova is an “unknown” at this point in time and has never before been linked to President Trump or his campaign. Her LinkedIn profile shows her to be a translator fluent in English, Arabic and obviously Russian, and she is the former Head of Communication of a Moscow based company called LTECH. According to her Facebook page, Gorokhova was in New York City from June 14-22 where it is confirmed (via Goldstone’s Facebook page) that she had dinner with Goldstone and Irina Agalarova on the evening of June 17, 2016. She then traveled to London (like Goldstone) on June 22. Then again on June 27, she returned to NYC (like Goldstone did). (Please note that Gorokhova may have absolutely nothing to do with anything here).
Natalia Veselnitskaya’s Travel Timeline: According to Veselnitskaya’s Facebook page, she was in NYC on June 10 (a day after her meeting at Trump Tower with Trump Jr.), and in Washington DC on June 14. In D.C. she met with Republican Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, who happens to be one of the Russian Government’s biggest allies in Congress. She then made a post from London on June 21 (one day prior to Goldstone and Gorokhova arriving in London, and two days prior to the Brexit vote). Her Facebook profile doesn’t show where she was between June 14 and June 21, but there is a good chance she returned to NYC and departed for London from there, potentially putting her in the city on June 17. After arriving in London, she stayed until June 29, when she returned home to Moscow.
Donald J. Trump Jr.’s Travel Timeline: While his father was on the campaign trail in Texas, Donald Trump Jr. appears to have been back in NYC on or around June 17, 2016. On June 16, he posted a photo on Instagram which was geotagged at Trump Tower, and a video on Facebook on June 17, of him celebrating his daughter Chloe’s birthday the day before. This seemingly would put Trump Jr. in Trump Tower on June 16, and more than likely June 17, 2016 as well.
- June 9, 2016 – First Meeting – Donald Trump Jr., Natalia Veselnitskaya, Rob Goldstone, Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner were in NYC
- June 10, 2016 – Natalia Veselnitskaya was in NYC
- June 14, 2016 – Rob Goldstone left NYC for Montreal; Yana Gorokhova was in NYC from now until June 22; Natalia Veselnitskaya was in Washington DC for a meeting
- with Republican Congressman Dana Rohrabacher
- June 16, 2016 – Rob Goldstone left Montreal for NYC; Donald Trump Jr. is confirmed to be at Trump Tower
- June 17, 2016 – **2nd Meeting???; Agalarova was walking around the vicinity of Trump Tower; Goldstone, Agalarova and Gorokhova have dinner in NYC
- June 21, 2016 – Natalia Veselnitskaya left the U.S. for London
- June 22, 2016 – Rob Goldstone and Yana Gorokhova left NYC for London (no evidence of where Agalarova was)
- June 23, 2016 – Brexit vote
- June 27, 2016 – Rob Goldstone and Yana Gorokhova left London for NYC (no evidence of where Agalarova was)
So the question that arises, is why were Goldstone, Irina Agalarova, and a Russian translator dining together on June 17 in NYC, and why was Agalarova walking past Trump Tower (and perhaps stopping inside) on June 17, 2016? Also, why did Goldstone leave NYC, then come back, before departing for the UK on the same date as Gorokhova (the translator) on June 22 and then returning another time (along with Gorokhova) on June 27? This is all the while the Russian attorney, Natalia Veselnitskaya, remained in the United States and perhaps in NYC during the week of June 17, before also departing to London a day prior to Goldstone and Gorokhova. Additionally, Goldstone posted on Facebook that the reason he was heading back to the UK was to meet up with Emin Agalarov on the 22nd (see below).
So what was happening in the UK that required at least 3 of these 4 individuals (it’s unknown if the 4th, Irina Agalarova, traveled to the UK during this time) to head there after NYC, prior to June 22? Nigel Farage was giving his final speech in London on that day, prior to a historic Brexit vote the following day, June 23, 2016.
This leads us to the question of, “Did a second meeting take place at Trump Tower on June 17, 2016, this time including Irina Agalarova and translator Yana Gorokhova?” Then, did this group of individuals travel to meet someone in the UK on the day before Britain voted to leave the UK?
Certainly this is just a theory, but there certainly is some reason to believe that a second meeting did take place. Were additional individuals from the Trump campaign on hand? Donald Trump himself was in Texas between June 16 – 18, so he can pretty much be ruled out of attending such a meeting. However, if a second meeting did take place, that would shed doubt on the idea that Trump Jr. and the Trump Campaign didn’t get any meaningful “damaging” information from the Russians. It seems almost too coincidental that all of these individuals were in NYC together just a week later — one of whom made a second trip to the city (Gorokhova) and one of whom made a third trip (Goldstone) in the 2-3 week time frame, and at least 3 of whom seemingly continued their travels to the UK, just prior to Brexit.
We’ve reached out for comments from Goldstone, Gorokhova and Irina Agalarova but have yet to hear back.
