It’s not every day that special counsel Robert Mueller appears in a photograph with a member of the Trump family, but a snapshot captured by Politico’s Playbook shows Mueller and Donald Trump Jr. both waiting to board their flights from Washington DC’s Reagan National Airport’s gate 35X on Friday morning.

In the photo, which originally appeared in Politico’s Playbook PM newsletter, Mueller is on the far left sitting and reading a newspaper, while Donald Jr. is spotted in the background wearing a turquoise shirt and camouflage hat, flanked by two Secret Service agents.
The awkward run-in comes a day after several bombshell revelations were reported relating to Mueller’s probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, and the Trump campaign’s potential role in it. – READ MORE

Perhaps the most shocking observation of McFaul is related to his invitation in front of Congress at a Foreign Affairs Committee. Pictures of the event are telling, not necessarily because of McFaul, but rather because of the individual he has sitting directly behind him, Natalia Veselnitskaya.
McFaul’s Congressional hearing occurred eight days after now famous Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya met with Donald Trump Jr. This meeting resulted in Donald Jr. being interrogated for hours by Congress over his meeting with Veselnitskaya.
Veselnitskaya, who attended a Women’s March in Chicago, the day after President Trump was inaugurated, has denied any connections with the Kremlin. She is now famous for the following –
Veselnitskaya met with Donald Jr. during the 2016 presidential election campaign after a promise to deliver damaging opposition research that would prove Hillary Clinton’s collusion with the Russian government.
Donald Jr. has admitted no such research was obtained and that the meeting was essentially fruitless.
What is more shocking is that Veselnitskaya met with Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson, before and after her meeting with Donald Jr. Fusion is the firm behind the phony Trump-Russia dossier that was never confirmed and very possibly all made up but nevertheless was used by Obama’s Deep State to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on President Trump.- READ MORE[give_form id=”79809″]
