BREAKING: Russian-American Lobbyist Says DNC Dirt Was Handed Over At Meeting


Earlier this morning, we broke the news that a Russian-American lobbyist named Rinat Akhmetshin, who officials believe still has strong ties to the Kremlin, also attended the now infamous June 9 Trump Tower meeting. Akhmetshin has since admitted to the Associated Press that he was in fact at the meeting along with Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya, Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner. Also indications from Trump Jr.’s attorney point to at least one, maybe two other individuals also in attendance.

If you happened to watch the interview of Trump Jr. by Sean Hannity earlier in the week, then you know that the President’s son has claimed full transparency. He also stated that the meeting ended up being a total waste of time and no dirt on either the DNC or Hillary Clinton was provided.

Well, it now appears as if Trump Jr. has left out the fact that a Russian-American lobbyist was in attendance, and even worse, there now appears to have been information handed over to the Trump Campaign during the meeting.  This information allegedly showed dirt on the DNC. In comments made by Rinat Akhmetshin to the Associated Press today, he stated that Veselnitskaya brought with her a plastic folder with printed-out documents detailing what she believed was the flow of illicit funds to the Democratic National Committee. Veselnitskaya clearly presented these documents to the Trump associates on hand and suggested to them that making the information public could help the Trump campaign.

Akhmetshin said that he specifically remembers Veselnitskaya saying to those in the meeting (including Trump Jr.) that “this could be a good issue to expose how the DNC is accepting bad money.”

Trump Jr. then asked Veselnitskaya if everything was in those documents to prove what she was saying, including the clear flow of funds to the DNC, and Veselnitskaya said that they would need to research it further. This is when, according to Akhmetshin, Trump Jr. seemed to lose interest.

While we do not know where the documents originated from, this seems to counter the narrative that the Trump administration has pushed out to the press, suggesting that there was no information handed over and that the meeting was a waste of time. So much for transparency I guess.

Also earlier this morning, Eddie Krassenstein wrote an article suggesting that there was another meeting which took place in Trump Tower on June 17, 2016.  We will have more as this story unfolds.

    This, if true, sounds more like what went on in the meeting. A whole lot more something than nothing.

  • This is high treason. Cannot put it any other way. Unless you are a patriot, this should bother you deeply

    And in the timeline, four days later on June 13, Trump Sr states that he is going to give a major speech outlining Clinton malfeasance in Russia and else where….. The speech never happened, but with Manifort in the meeting who has a we know has a long relations with Stone….

    This is the Plumbers all over again….. It begs the question “What did our so-called president know and when did he know it”. I don’t buy into the narrative that says he did not know about the Junior meeting on June 9th until it was reported this week. He’s lied too many times and has zero credibility. I’d lay odds that he knew before the meeting and Junior forwarded email to him to with Senior responded “I love it, too! Bigly!”

    There’s no denying it now. No matter what the investigation yields will have seen this with our own eyes and ears. Trump Jr. even admitted it. There’s no doubt they worked with our enemy the Russians to get dirt on their opponent. So as long as Trump is president we will resist no matter what.

    they are guilty of treason. what is truly sad is that in 2018, if still in office, “Red Staters” will continue to vote for them. this country is no longer an example of democracy and humanity. i’ve lost all respect for millions of GOP voters.

  • Nothing can happen of all this! The GOP are too corrupt and mindful that they can GUIDE Trump as they wish. America! You are stuck with a Classic! . . . A “Low Class Twit” as your President!
