Trump Jr. Forgets to Mention Meeting With Ex-Russian Spy

Jared Kushner's Attendance Continues to Draw Heat As Well

“A prominent Russian-American lobbyist and former Soviet military officer attended a meeting with President Donald Trump’s son, son-in-law and campaign chairman last year, the lobbyist said Friday, adding a new wrinkle to the Trump team’s evolving explanations about the June 2016 session,” Chicago Tribune reports.

“Rinat Akhmetshin confirmed his involvement to The Associated Press in an interview. He had not been previously identified as a participant in the meeting at Trump Tower in New York, which was billed as part of a Russian government effort to help the Republican’s White House campaign.”

“Federal and congressional investigators are probing possible connections between the campaign and Moscow.”
