Welcome to the introductory installment of the “The Three Chumps: Follow the Meeting” series.
Face it, the mainstream media (MSM) does an excellent job of reporting the latest “drips” in the neverending connections between Trump and Russia. However, they often fail to put in the “hard work.” Think of Trump/Russia as a bigly puzzle, the MSM provides one piece at a time but then moves on to chase the next piece. They rarely to never put those puzzle pieces together, now, do they?
The purpose of the series will be to examine the June 9, 2016, meeting between Russia and Trump campaign representatives. In other words, assembling that puzzle based on the available pieces.
DR guarantee: At the conclusion of this series will prove a record number of “coincidences” or a circumstantial case that strongly suggests Team Trump and Team Russia were (and maybe still are) on the same team.
This first article will begin with an analysis of the email exchange that led to the meeting between Russian officials and Team Trump. *The significance of any bolded email quotes will immediately follow each individual email (as necessary).
Due to the sheer amount of data, a summary and an associated compliment “Is It Possible” will be posted separately.
The following email exchange is from Donald Trump, Jr. and Rob Goldstone. Mr. Goldstone is a Public Relations representative for famous clients and was also involved in arranging Trump’s 2013 Miss Universe in Moscow deal.
On June 3, 2016, at 10:36 AM Rob Goldstone writes to Donald Trump, Jr:
Emin just called and asked me to contact you with something very interesting.
The Crown prosecutor of Russia met with his father Aras this morning and in their meeting offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father.
This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump – helped along by Aras and Emin.
What do you think is the best way to handle this information and would you be able to speak to Emin about it directly?
I can also send this info to your father via Rhona, but it is ultra sensitive so wanted to send to you first.
This email proves Trump/Russia collusion–BOOM! The series is a success.
Just for fun, let’s continue on.
Emin is Emin Agalarov a big-time Russian music star. He is the son of Russian oligarch Aras Agalarov. The Agalarovs are friends and business partners to the Trumps. In 2013, Donald Trump, Sr. partnered with Aras Agalarov on a bigly deal for Trump’s Miss Universe pageant that was held in Moscow.
“Crown prosecutor” does not point to any one person as Russia does not have such a position but does have a Prosecutor General. Or maybe Goldstone was using a code?
A damning statement: offered to provide…information that would incriminate Hillary Clinton…very useful to your father. If that was not enough, the email adds the information is “very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump – helped along by Aras and Emin.”
Mr. Goldstone just spelled out that the Russian government and a Russian billionaire (and Trump friend and previous business partner) wanted to hurt Clinton and also help Trump.
Based on this single email, President Trump’s refusal to acknowledge Russia’s meddling and their intent to help him indicates the President is either intentionally lying or ranks among the biggest idiots on planet earth. Now, a #DotardDonald stupidity defense would be convincing. Otherwise, his intentional blind eye and insults aimed at American intelligence agencies, all the credible news reports, along with his son’s incriminating email suggest that President Trump is likely guilty as hell. Sorry, not really sure if that is a technical legal term for guilt–but what would you call it? Go on, mull it over (actually Mueller it over).
Goldstone offers to go through Rhona Graff (Donald Trump’s personal assistant/secretary/guard since 1987). This suggests that Mr. Goldstone has no problem going directly to candidate Trump. Based on Trump’s record, it is reasonable to believe that Mr. Goldstone might be more concerned about having to explain to Rhona the need to talk to #BiglyDotard. In a nefarious situation, it would be wise to avoid the inclusion of someone that may not be corrupt, right?
17 minutes later at June 3, 2016, at 10:53AM Donald Trump Jr. replies to Rob Goldstone:
Thanks Rob I appreciate that. I am on the road at the moment but perhaps I just speak to Emin first. Seems we have some time and if it’s what you say I love it especially later in the summer. Could we do a call first thing next week when I am back?
Nobody seems to have answered or even bothered to ask about Jr.’s “on the road” whereabouts. It seems somewhat obvious but who, what, when, where, and why? All seem like important questions that need to be answered. Unfortunately, after scouring for hours trying to pin his location down–still got nothing. The best answer found (so far) was Trump Jr.’s admission to Sean Hannity:
Honestly, my takeaway, when all of this was going on, is that someone has information on our opponent. You know, things are going a million miles an hour. You know what it’s like to be on a campaign.
On this day, it should be noted that #DotardDaddyTrump held a rally in Redding, California. If Jr. was with him–would it not be likely that Jr. mentioned this to pop?
“I love it especially later in the summer” seems to expertly forecast exactly what appears to unfold. Is it not a coincidence that Russia arranged a meeting with Trump Jr. in regards to dirt on Hillary Clinton–and then that is exactly what happened? Generally, speaking that does not seem like an everyday occurrence. Well, does it?
On June 06, 2016 12:40 PM Rob Goldstone replies to Don, Jr:
Subject: Re: Russia – Clinton – private and confidential
Let me know when you are free to talk with Emin by phone about this Hillary info – you had mentioned early this week so wanted to try to schedule a time and day Best to you and family
Over three days pass before another email exchange occurs. Of particular note, Goldstone says, “you had mentioned earlier this week.” Two things are odd about the statement.
The first, it was a Monday. The second, his claim is that Trump Jr. mentioned the “info.” The previous email exchange from the 3rd of June clearly points to Goldstone offering up damning information to Jr. However, did Goldstone simply make two glaring mistakes in this email? Or is there more to the story? Not to mention, a whole three days between email contact. But did they talk on the phone? Meet in person? Had Jr. previously asked Goldstone for assistance? There are far too many unanswered questions.
On June 6, 2016, at 3:03PM Donald Trump Jr. replies to Goldstone:
Rob could we speak now?
Donald J. Trump Jr.
No bigly surprise as Jr. signs the email with a little d.
On June 6, 2016, at 3:37PM Rob Goldstone replies to Jr:
Let me track him down in Moscow
What number he could call?
On June 6, 2016, at 3:38PM, Donald Trump Jr. replies to Goldstone:
My cell [REDACTED] thanks
Donald J. Trump Jr.
On June 6, 2016, at 3:43 PM, Rob Goldstone replies to Jr.:
Ok he’s on stage in Moscow but should be off within 20 Minutes so I am sure can call
Almost an hour passes before Jr. will reply. At this point, are we to assume that Trump, Jr. called Emin Agalarov? Based on Goldstone’s message Agalarov would have been off stage shortly past 4PM–leaving Trump time to make such a call. If the call happened–what did they talk about? Consider that if Goldstone was a middleman and it was the Agalarov’s idea–Jr.’s call just went straight to the source.
On June 6, 2016, at 4:38PM, Donald Trump Jr. wrote:
Rob thanks for the help.
Look at that, whatever happened increased the size of Jr.’s little d. Since the messages only occurred in an hour–wonder if there was a psychological shift behind Jr.’s keyboard shift? Perhaps, Jr. felt a growth in confidence or maybe thought his nefarious advantage would make his dad proud. Certainly, it may have been just a regular old switch from lower to upper case.
(Note: the lower to upper case D appears to be due to Trump’s change in technology devices–was just making a joke earlier. It was funny, right?)
On June 7, 2016, at 4:20 PM, Rob Goldstone wrote:
Hope all is well
Emin asked that I schedule a meeting with you and The Russian government attorney who is flying over from Moscow for this Thursday.
I believe you are aware of the meeting – and so wondered if 3pm or later on Thursday works for you?
I assume it would be at your office.
Goldstone starts by saying that Emin asked for a meeting to be scheduled but follows by adding “I believe you are aware of the meeting.” This phrase indicates that Goldstone believes that Jr. did speak to Emin Agalarov and that a meeting was already scheduled (by Agalarov). Goldstone was then told to arrange a time and would accompany the Russians to Trump Tower to meet with Trump Jr.
On June 7, 2016, at 5:16 PM, Donald Trump Jr. writes to Goldstone:
How about 3 at our offices? Thanks rob appreciate you helping set it up.
Jr. is still in the big D mode.
On June 7, 2016, at 5:19 PM, Rob Goldstone writes:
Perfect…I won’t sit in on the meeting, but will bring them at 3pm and introduce you etc.
I will send the names of the two people meeting with you for security when I have them later today.
This email exchange seems to confirm that Goldstone is likely just a middleman.
On June 7, 2016, at 6:14PM, Donald Trump Jr. replies:
Great. It will likely be Paul Manafort (campaign boss) my brother in law and me. 725 Fifth Ave 25th floor.
Jr. refers to Paul Manafort as the *boss (guess that would make Jr. as the mob might say a young ‘capo’). One would think that Jr. had to contact Manafort and Kushner before throwing their names as likely attendees of the meeting. *Additionally, during the time of the meeting Corey Lewandowski was Trump’s campaign manager. However, he spent most of the time managing Trump as Manafort handled the day to day campaign.
On June 8, 2016, at 10:34AM, Goldstone writes Jr.:
Would it be possible to move tomorrow meeting to 4pm as the Russian attorney is in court until 3 i was just informed.
On Jun 8, 2016, at 11:15AM, Donald Trump Jr. wrote:
Yes Rob I could do that unless they wanted to do 3 today instead… just let me know and ill lock it in either way.
The last two messages are in the email format:
From: Rob Goldstone
Sent: Wednesday, June 08, 2016 11:18 AM
To: Donald Trump Jr.
Subject: Re: Russia – Clinton – private and confidential
They can’t do today as she hasn’t landed yet from Moscow 4pm is great tomorrow.
From: Donald Trump Jr.
Sent: Wednesday, June 08, 2016 12:03 PM
To: Jared Kushner; Paul Manafort
Subject: FW: Russia – Clinton – private and confidential
Meeting got moved to 4 tomorrow at my offices.
Goldstone changes the meeting time and then Jr. (for the first time on email) notifies both Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner. At this point, both have no deniability on what the topic of the meeting is for and who it is with–as it’s clearly visible in the email’s subject line.
