Why Was the Identity of the Eighth Man Kept a Secret?
This is a complicated story but I will do my best to give a brief summary. The eighth man at the June 9 meeting in 2016 is Irakly “Ike” Kaveladze a Russian whose past puts him squarely in the crosshairs of U.S. investigators of the Trump/Russia scandal. It now looks like Jared Kushner, Trump’s right hand and one of the people in the infamous meeting may have outed the eighth man in his ‘revised’ security clearance disclosure form.
First of all, Kaveladze was president of IBC, a corporation that was responsible for registering over 2000 dummy corporations with the intention of laundering money from Russian and Eastern European oligarchs. The IBC set these companies up in Delaware at an office that was not staffed. Unopened mail outside the office was seen by Politico investigative reporters. The office is rented to IBC and Russian Art Mall which is registered to Aras Agalarov and who also owns Crocus Group, a real estate development firm. Agalarov, through Crocus Group worked with Trump to bring the Miss Universe pageant to Moscow in 2013. Kaveladze is a senior vice president of Crocus Group. In 2000 the GAO (Government Accountability Office) discovered through an investigation requested by Senator Carl Levin of Michigan that Kaveladze played a big part in the $1.4 billion money laundering scheme through Citibank in New York and Commercial Bank in San Francisco. Kaveladze was also involved in “a Russian crime syndicate apparently laundering around $10 billion using the Bank of New York”. http://www.newsweek.com/eighth-man-russia-meeting-laundered-russian-money-639144
Also in attendance at the June 9 meeting were Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and Paul Manafort, then campaign manager for Trump who was the other Americans at the meeting.
Goldstone, a music public relations executive who has known Trump Sr. for many years, and who represents Emin Agalarov, the son of Aras Agalarov was the person who told Trump Jr that Agalarov had dirt on Hillary. https://www.wired.com/story/rob-goldstone-trump-family-timeline/
Natalia Veselnitskaya, a Russian and lobbyist fighting against the Magnitsky Act which an “American law that blacklists Russians suspected of violating human rights”. Not surprisingly, Putin hates that law since he himself is guilty of violating human rights.
Rinat Akhmetshin, a former member of the Russian Military Intelligence group, also known as the GRU, now works for Veselnitskay as a lobbyist against the Magnitsky Act.
Anatoli Samachornov, a translator. Akhmetshin told reporters that Anatoli Samachornov was a translator for Veselnitskaya.
Like I said, this is complicated and indicates the spider web of connections between Trump, his family and his campaign staffers, to the Kremlin. It sickens me to see the way Trump fauns over his idol, Putin. I am also very frightened because I now believe that Trump would gladly through the U.S under a bus just to get some praise from Putin. I believe Trump is desperate for acknowledgement of his presidential legitimacy and he will do anything (legal or not) to prove that he won the popular vote. What did he say to Putin his the second meeting at the G20 Summit.
Hang in there everyone. It’s going to be a bumpy ride.
