We’ve already reported that Hillary Clinton’s campaign team, working with Glenn Simpson and Fusion GPS, likely set up the entire Trump Tower meeting with Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner as a way of entrapping the Trump campaign.
An additional review of evidence from testimonies of events that day provides further support that the whole thing was a political setup!
Dan Bongino recently shared on his podcast facts about the meeting at Trump Tower –
This meeting’s a set up. It’s a set up! It’s a set up! It’s a scam! It’s a set up”
Bongino laid out how the entire meeting at Trump Tower was a set up. The ‘Russians’ involved were all connected to Hillary Clinton.
Listen starting at the 13:00 mark –
On FOX News, California Congressman Devin Nunes, who sat through hours of testimonies related to the Trump – Russia farce, said the following –
… but something also probably important to note about the so called Trump Tower meeting. This is the meeting that actually Fusion GPS met with the people before and after that meeting.
Fusion GPS, once again, was a Clinton Campaign paid for operations outfit. They were clearly involved in the set up of the Trump Tower meeting. So if they want to bring Cohen in and talk to him, that’s great, we’ll participate. But the truth, if you really want to get to the truth behind the Trump Tower meeting, Fusion GPS and the Clinton campaign are all over it, and probably behind it.
The group that organized the meeting with Trump advisers and the Russian lawyers was the same Democratic group Fusion GPS that was behind the discredited Trump dossier.
The eight people who attended the Trump Tower meeting on June 9, 2016:
— Donald Trump Jr.
— Jared Kushner (left early)
— Paul Manafort
— Natalia Veselnitskaya (Fusion GPS)
— Anatoli Samochornov (translator and Fusion GPS)
— Rinat Akhmetshin (lobbyist – Fusion GPS)
— Rob Goldstone
— Rep. of the Agalarov Family
The lawyer who met with the Trump team in June 2016 was denied a U.S. visa to enter, however; she received special permission to enter the United States after filing an affidavit in a Federal case in New York.
The night before the Trump Tower meeting, [Glenn] Simpson [from Fusion GPS] had dinner with another client, Natalia Veselnitskaya. He had dinner with her again the night after the meeting, he told Congress. [Veselnitskaya was at the Trump Tower meeting and is suspected of working for Simpson.]
But we now have additional information regarding the Trump Tower meeting.
The whole thing was a set up and one of the participants indirectly told us this in his testimony before Congress.
The Trump Tower guests claim they wanted to affect government policy. Trump Jr. responded by saying, hey, we’re just in campaign right now. We aren’t government. We can’t do anything for you. Come back to us “when we win.” Meaning you’re talking to the wrong people. We have no power to do anything for you on this subject right now. But Akhmetshin’s response is not what you would expect from someone who wants to affect government policy.
Take special notice of Jr.’s words: “WHEN we win.” What was Akhmetshin’s response to that boast?
“Yeah, right,” Whatever….
That means that Akhmetshin didn’t think they had a snowball’s chance in hell of winning….so then, ummm, why were they there then?
If the Trump Tower guests were not there to affect policy then they were most likely there for some other reason – to set up the Trump team with some Russia collusion conspiracy sham.
