Mueller Investigating Ivanka Trump for Saying Hello to Russians in Elevator Lobby After Controversial Trump Tower Meeting by Kristinn Taylor
Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating Ivanka Trump over a brief elevator encounter with the two Russians at the center of a controversial 2016 meeting at Trump Tower that she did not attend.
The Los Angeles Times broke the news this morning, with a report that Ivanka exchanged pleasantries with the Russian duo.
Investigators also are exploring the involvement of the president’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, who did not attend the half-hour sit-down on June 9, 2016, but briefly spoke with two of the participants, a Russian lawyer and a Russian-born Washington lobbyist. Details of the encounter were not previously known.
It occurred at the Trump Tower elevator as the Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, and the lobbyist, Rinat Akhmetshin, were leaving the building and consisted of pleasantries, a person familiar with the episode said. But Mueller’s investigators want to know every contact the two visitors had with Trump’s family members and inner circle.
Mueller long has sought to nail down details of the unusual gathering at the height of the presidential race between three of Trump’s top campaign aides — his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and his campaign manager, Paul Manafort — and Veselnitskaya, Akhmetshin, plus a Russian language translator, a U.S.-based employee of a Russian real estate group, and a British music promoter with Russian business ties who helped bring the group together.”
The Times reported Mueller is looking at possible obstruction of justice by President Trump over his involvement in writing a press release about the meeting.
Mueller’s team is trying to determine if Trump and others involved in drafting the language aboard Air Force One knew it was inaccurate and whether it was aimed at deceiving federal investigators looking into whether the Trump campaign actively assisted a Russian intelligence operation aimed at interfering in the U.S. campaign.
…Mueller’s investigation into possible obstruction of justice by Trump is also examining whether he improperly tried to shield his former national security advisor, Michael Flynn, from an FBI investigation and then fired FBI Director James B. Comey to block the inquiry.
John Dowd, one of Trump’s lawyers, declined to comment Friday on the direction of Mueller’s inquiry. Trump has repeatedly denied wrongdoing and in a tweet Friday again denounced allegations of collusion with Russia as “a total hoax.”
Magnificent Mueller has her dead to rights now, even if she DIDN'T "intend" to!!!
Senators refer Christopher Steele, Trump dossier author, for possible criminal charges Nation Jan 5, 2018 2:39 PM EST WASHINGTON — Two Republican senators have made the first known criminal referral in congressional investigations of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. They’re targeting the author of a dossier of allegations about President Donald Trump’s ties to Russia.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham say they’ve referred former British spy Christopher Steele to the Justice Department for investigation about false statements he may have made about “the distribution of claims contained in the dossier.”
Lawmakers cannot prosecute criminal activity. But they generally refer any criminal violations they find to the Justice Department. The senators say part of the referral is classified.
The dossier was compiled during the campaign and contains allegations about Trump’s ties to Russia. It was paid for by the DNC/Clinton and the Democrats.
She absolutely is, and by so much, no former First Lady is even close to coming in second.
I hear ya. Sorry, I got the names mixed up, but they both are beautiful women...just an observation I made, no disrespect intended. As long as her husband turns out to be a good president, that's what matters. I
Hawai’i Free Press: Russia has lots of experience in media censorship. So perhaps it is logical that Rep Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI-2) hires an agent of the Russian government as a ‘consultant’ to keep Hawaii media under control.
But Gabbard’s consultant, Chris Cooper of the Potomac Square Group, is no ordinary Russian agent. Cooper is allegedly one of seven identified as being at the center of illegal Russian lobbying efforts reaching into the Trump campaign and Congress.
Inquiries with Gabbard’s DC office last June by reporter Christine Gralow—then stringing an article for Honolulu Magazine–must have piqued the attentions of the numerous Hare Krishna cultists employed there. Within 24 hours a letter from Cooper, identifying himself as “a consultant to Rep. Tulsi Gabbard,” riddled with misspellings and inaccuracies, landed in the in-box of Honolulu Magazine’s editors.
It worked. Honolulu Magazine suddenly lost interest in Gralow’s articles – which she eventually published on her own website, www.MeanwhileinHawaii.org. And confirming its obsequience, on November 20, Honolulu Magazine characterized a Gabbard cult expose in the New Yorker as “another project in otherizing Gabbard’s faith journey.” Keep reading here
SNIP: Be sure to read the Meanwhile in Hawai’i link. It’s an expose on the Gabbard family’s deep roots in Hawai’i politics and associations with some shady Hare Krishna cultists.

Going "all KPC/GG" would mean the FACTS in the link are inaccurate or fake news. The date is irrelevant.
There's only 1 reason why you want it stopped
"...then why don't you allow Mueller to come up empty?" Uhhh, given Mueller's record on this, how many decades do we have to wait?
The date is irrelevant if the facts are there to back up the post. OTOH, Faux News is Faux News is Faux News, regardless of the date.
And he’s not NEARLY this cogent or mentally acute now. They should livecast the interview and charge- it would cancel the deficit of every country in the world AND still have money for global healthcare AND end hunger.
