Mainstream media has been headlining the fake news Trump-Russia collusion narrative since Donald Trump was a candidate and pounce on any opportunity to keep it front and center in the news.
When it was leaked that Donald Trump Jr., had a meeting with Natalia Veselnitskaya, a Russian lawyer, rather than wait for the details they ran with the narrative that she was a ‘spy‘, which she denies.
Trump Jr. confirmed that the June 2016 meeting had occurred, saying in a statement to The New York Times that he attended “a short introductory meeting” with the lawyer, which he said was nothing more than research opposition to gather information on Hillary Clinton, but the topic of conversation was primarily about adoption.
Trump Jr. has denied any wrongdoing occurred, and released the email chain that detailed how the meeting was instigated.
Then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and senior aide attended the meeting with him.
There were others who attended the meeting that mainstream media has been speculating about rather than reporting facts.
Rinat Akhmetshin, a prominent Russian-American lobbyist and former Soviet military officer also attended the meeting. According to the AP Akhmetshin has been reported to have ties to Russian intelligence, a characterization he dismisses as a “smear campaign.” He’s a well-known Washington presence, lobbying for Russian interests trying to undermine the allegations of a lawyer who died in a Russian prison and is the namesake of a U.S. sanctions law.
Rob Goldstone who is a British publicist and acted as an intermediary in arranging the meeting between Trump Jr. and Veselnitskaya.
Here is where the plot thickens…
The Russian translator that was present at meeting worked with the State Department as well as with the FBI during Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s tenure as Director. Yet the Mainstream Media and those heading up this investigation calling for Don Jr.’s head failed to mention that revelation.
Former FBI director Mueller is currently the appointed United States Special Counsel heading up the investigation of President Donald Trump’s administration. He was appointed after former FBI Director James Comey leaked his conversations with Trump about the Russia investigation which have been determined to contain classified information, according to interviews with officials familiar with the documents, The Hill reports.
Mueller’s office has remained silent on the issue as has the translator, Anatoli Samochornov. Samochornov who also worked for the US State Department up until recently under Hillary Clinton’s leadership.
According to True Pundit:
“Samochornov has worked as an intelligence attache and translator for the United States in varying capacities for years. In 2010, while Mueller was FBI Director, Samochornov worked with the head of the New York FBI field office, FBI Acting Special Agent in Charge Lauren Anderson. Anderson worked with Samochornov in his role as “Program Officer” to the State Department’s International Visitor & leadership program.
Anderson, who is now retired from the FBI, could not be reached for comment, although she has been quoted in the New York Times applauding ex-FBI boss James Comey’s alleged diligent note taking for his alleged memos compiled against President Trump. Anderson worked high profile espionage cases in Europe, Russia, France, and western Africa for the Bureau and ran the global terrorism program of the FBI’s New York Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) before her recent retirement, FBI sources said.
A web paged archived by the FBI New York Field office shows Samochornov and Anderson. We have saved the original page in case it is scrubbed. While the archived page does identify Samochornov, searching the Russian-born translator’s name via the search bar on the FBI site does not retrieve any results.
Lawmakers and Justice Department officials need to examine what, if any, additional roles or work Samochornov performed for and with Mueller’s FBI. The appears to be yet another glaring question of conflict of interest for Special Counsel Mueller. They are piling up.”
It seems Don Jr. may have been set up by the Deep State in their efforts to thwart President Trump for winning the presidency from Hillary Clinton. They choose to throw these half truths out there as fodder for the propaganda machine and many on both the left and right are simply eating it up with little to no research to determine the truth of the matter.
