Who Is Rinat Akhmetshin? Former Soviet Intelligence Operative Confirms Trump Jr Meeting

Trump Roasted On Twitter After Tweeting 'I Have Very Little Time For Watching TV'

In fact he sat for a TV interview with Sean Hannity of Fox News on Tuesday, and that included this exchange.

The committee received records from DHS after its chairman, Senator Chuck Grassley, requested all available nonclassified information on Akhmetshin in April.

"The Russian-American lobbyist who attended a meeting at Trump Tower previous year is a former military officer who has attracted congressional scrutiny over his political activities and has been shadowed by allegations of connections to Russian intelligence", the AP reported. A State Department source said Samochornov was never an employee and that the department does not provide translators for non-government private meetings.

He had been working with Veselnitskaya on a campaign against the Magnitsky Act, a set of sanctions against alleged Russian human rights violators.

Earlier this year, Sen.

Rinat Akhmetshin was not one to hide his connections to Russian intelligence.

Akhmetshin's lobbying caught the attention of Sen. But he denies that and says he has no ties to Russian intelligence agencies.

This is in addition to the revelation Friday morning that in attendance was also a lobbyist, Rinat Akhmetshin, who emigrated to the US from Russian Federation.

In reports this week, Akhmetshin has been identified as a former Russian counterintelligence officer.

"The problem for the Trump administration is that this is a big shoe that has dropped and only adds fuel to the investigatory fire", Former Washington state Attorney General Rob McKenna told KIRO Radio's Dave Ross. "But we've gotta just make sure that anything we do is legal and then we'd have to talk to people who donated to us and make sure they'd want to do it that way", she said.

According to Bloomberg, which broke the Cobb story, top administrators are bringing Cobb into the mix because they want someone to enforce discipline in the White House on matters related to the Russian investigation.

CBS News has learned President Donald Trump was briefed about the meeting three days before it was disclosed in The New York Times, though it seems he was not aware there were more people in the room than initially reported. Trump Jr. also said his father, President Donald Trump, wasn't aware of the meeting until recently. He accepted the meeting on the premise that he would be offered damaging information about Hillary Clinton.

"The information they suggested they had about Hillary Clinton I thought was Political Opposition Research", Trump Jr. wrote in a statement that was published alongside the correspondence.

In the emails, Trump Jr. was told by an interlocutor that he could get "very high level and sensitive information" that was "part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump". "If it's what you say, I love it, especially later in the summer", he emailed back to Goldstone.
