A video has surfaced that shows Trump signing a deal with Aras Agalarov, from the same family that set up the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Trump Jr. and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya. Specifically, Aras Agalarov is the father of the Russian who setup the infamous meeting with Trump Jr. in Trump tower.
Scott Dworkin says, “Whatever you do this morning don’t retweet this video I found of Trump saying he has “the best Russian partners” before he signs a $20 million deal with them. Same Russians who set up Don Jr Russian lawyer meeting: Aras & Emin Agalarov.”

But no, he doesn’t have ties to Russian oligarchs, right?
Josh Schwerin, the Communications Director for Priorities USA, discovered that Rob Goldstone, the man who has been discovered setting up the meeting between Trump Jr. and the Russian lawyer, “checked in to Trump Organization” via Facebook on June 9th, 2016 (the day of the meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and the Kremlin representative). See for yourself:
He even went on to admit on Facebook that he was “preparing for a meeting” at Trump Tower on Jun 9th, 2016:
Since this story broke, Goldstone is trying to cover his tracks. He deleted the Facebook ‘check in’ to Trump Tower from his Facebook wall. This is what you now see, but Goldstone must have forgotten that the internet is written in ink:
And if that isn’t bad enough, he was also apparently in Moscow just two weeks prior, and then again immediately after the meeting with Donald Trump Jr. and the Kremlin:
Let this serve as a reminder, folks. If you’re going to use social media, please use social media responsibly. Fortunately for us, Goldstone didn’t get that memo before it was too late.
