The missing links in the Russia collusion hoax no one talks about

With each day it becomes more and more clear that Donald Trump has been framed vis-a-vis the Russian collusion accusation. How exactly it found life is beginning to clear, but there are a couple of things that need concretion. Let's review how this all began.

June 2016: Veselnitskaya granted immigration parole by obama State Dept, just in time to meet with Trump Jr.

June 3, 2016: Trump Jr. receives an email from Rob Goldstone:

Emin [Agalarov, a Russian pop star represented by Goldstone] just called and asked me to contact you with something very interesting.

The Crown prosecutor of Russia met with his father Aras [a Moscow-based developer who tried to partner with Trump in a hotel project] this morning and in their meeting offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary [Clinton] 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?

can also send this info to your father via Rhona [presumably Rhona Graff, Trump’s longtime executive assistant], but it is ultra sensitive so wanted to send to you first.

Jr. replies
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?
June 7, 2016: Goldstone to Jr.
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 to Jr.:
Good morning. Would it be possible to move tomorrow meeting to 4pm as the Russian attorney is in court until 3 I was just informed.
Yes Rob I could do that unless they wanted to do 3 today instead ... just let me know and I’ll lock it in either way.
They can’t do today as she hasn’t landed from Moscow. 4pm is great tomorrow.
Just in time for the meeting

June 9, 2016: The meeting takes place. In attendance: Trump Jr., Kushner, Manafort, Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, Akhmetshin and publicist Rob Goldstone, who helped set up the meeting. A source familiar with the circumstances told CNN there were at least two other people in the room as well, a translator and a representative of the Russian family who had asked Goldstone to set up the meeting. The source did not provide the names.

Veselnitskaya was reported to bring some dirt- but not on Hillary. The dirt she brought was dug up by Glenn Simpson and Fusion GPS intended to discredit Bill Browder, the driving force behind the Magnitsky Act.

Months before she met in June 2016 with Trump Jr., Veselnitskaya said she turned the information she got from Simpson over to Russian Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika, who she said sought to verify it through his own investigation. 

In May 2016, the Russian prosecutor general issued a statement seeking U.S. help in investigating what he described as a tax evasion scheme involving the Ziff brothers, American investors, and British investor Bill Browder.

Veselnitskaya has claimed that she knew nothing about any information on Hillary but only wanted to lobby for the repeal of the Magnitsky Act. The meeting lasted less than a half hour.

So the first question is- why did Goldstone tell Trump Jr. that this meeting was about information concerning Hillary?

It might seem possible that there was some kind of mix-up on Goldstone's part as he suggested there was information on Hillary to be had but Goldstone was very specific and Browder was no candidate. More likely is that Goldstone used dirt on Hillary as the bait to lure Trump Jr. into a meeting about repealing the Magnitsky Act.  Then again, why would he do that to a "friend"?

So far, no one has questioned Goldstone about that. In fact, Mueller hasn't even contacted Veselnitskaya.

"...June 2016: Veselnitskaya granted immigration parole by obama State Dept, just in time to meet with Trump Jr..."

Things that make you go...Hmmm...

Emin Agalarov...I can easily see Putin's thugs:

PUTIN THUG: Emin...we have something we need you to do for us.

EMIN AGALAROV: Uh...sure...what do you need?

PUTIN THUG: Don't worry, we just need you to agree to meet with an American for us.

EMIN AGALAROV: Really? Er...what for?

PUTIN THUG: Nothing big. You don't even have to meet with them, just tell your agent Rob Goldstone that you wish to discuss some entertainment matters with a guy with connections to Donald Trump, so he can get some face time and set things up. You have interacted with Trump before in the past, so this should be no big deal for you, right?

EMIN AGALAROV: Look, I know who you are and who you work for...but...this all sounds a bit sketchy to me. I don't get involved in politics and stuff, I would rather not do it.

PUTIN THUG:Come on, Emin. Who gave you your introduction into the entertainment industry? Who set you up with the money you needed to get your career going? I don't think we are asking too much...come this for us.

EMIN AGALAROV: I guys have been good to me, but...this makes me uneasy. I would rather not do it.

PUTIN THUG: Emin, look. You remember that night you were at a post concert party, and you drank too much vodka, got really smashed, and you and that guy went into the bedroom together...

EMIN AGALAROV: I...I...we only went in there to speak in private about a situation with a friend...

PUTIN THUG: Emin. We have audio and video. We know what went on in the bedroom, nobody else has to know. Think about how bad that would be for your career...the ladies love you and all. It would be a shame to have this come out, it wouldn't be good for business for you. Just do this favor, just pick up the phone, call Rob Goldstone, tell him you want him to meet with Trump and set up a future meeting, and that is all you have to do. Do that, and nobody will ever know about the video from the bedroom. This is just 'business stuff', no big deal.

EMIN AGALAROV: I have your word on this?

PUTIN THUG: Yeah. Absolutely. No worries. (Pats him on the shoulder) I knew we could count on you.

Point is, the way this has all gone down it all points to a major attempt at fostering the appearance of collusion.

Flopping Aces asked "So the first question is- why did Goldstone tell Trump Jr. that this meeting was about information concerning Hillary?"

There are people who believe that the wiretapping and surveillance of Trump and his team began in advance of the actual submission to the FISA court, and that the FISA submission and approval (which can be retroactive) they thought would cover their asses for surveillance already going on.

So, how good would it be to have this meeting, with audio and transcripts from all the phone calls leading up to it, to have the line from the Russian: We have some confidential information on Hillary Clinton that would help your father's campaign..."

Eh? Pretty good, huh?

It would make ZERO difference if the transcript and audio had Trump Jr. saying "Well, no. We aren't interested in that. I thought this meeting was at Emin Agalarov's request, and had something to do with a tour or sales in the USA..."

Mueller and Comey knew that the Clintons paid a ex British spy to makeup the “dossier”. That should have ended the Trump investigation and the Clintons should have been arrested.
Of course we now know these guys were part of the coup against Trump. I just wish Trump would start arresting people. He does not even fire people. The soap opera continues.
