OK, probably not the Russian Hookers.
Anyway, NBC has a scoop that there was yet ANOTHER person in that cozy meeting with Usay/Squiggy the Clown Prince of the Orange Empire, Fratsputin, and future-former You’re-Fired! Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort. We thought that there must a translator, but NBC reports that his occupation is more likely, *cough* Russian-American Lobbyist:
WASHINGTON — The Russian lawyer who met with the Trump team after a promise of compromising material on Hillary Clinton was accompanied by a Russian-American lobbyist — a former Soviet counterintelligence officer who is suspected by some U.S. officials of having ongoing ties to Russian intelligence, NBC News has learned…
The presence at the meeting of a Russian-American with suspected intelligence ties is likely to be of interest to special counsel Robert Mueller and the House and Senate panels investigating the Russian election interference campaign.
Alan Futerfas, the attorney retained by Donald Trump Jr., told NBC News two other people accompanied Veselnitskaya to the meeting — someone Futerfas described as a translator and someone he described as a “friend of Emin [Agalarov]’s and maybe as a friend of Natalia [Veselnitskaya]’s.”
The whole circus was in that room, and no one remembered to put this in their disclosure forms. It really is time to strip the security clearance from Fratsputin. At minimum.
