We Need A Bigger Conference Room…

We started out with Junior, Jared, and Paul Manafort meeting with Natalia Veselnitskaya to discussed the Russian government providing opposition research about Hillary Clinton, after saying for months there were no such meetings.

Then Russian lobbyist and former member of Soviet GRU counter-intel Rinat Akhmetshin is added to the list, and the latest attendance sheet show publicist Rob Goldstone, a translator, and a representative of the Agalarov family were also there.

Charlie Pierce posits the Bolshoi Ballet may have stopped by and I wonder about a challenge between the Russian Army Chorus and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

People don’t get to just drop into the conference rooms at Trump Tower, you have to be pre-approved. There was attendence taken, and you don’t get to leave out former GRU agents or representatives of a Russian/Azerbaijani oligarch, known as Putin’s builder.
