There is a burning question in Washington DC that is driving reporters up a wall, and back again.
What exactly happened at the Trump Jr meeting in Trump tower on June 9th?
In the days since the New York Times changed the course of political history by revealing a nefarious, and clandestine meeting between senior officials of the Trump campaign, and tacit representatives of Russia intelligence, the story as to why and how this happened has changed several times.

As Fox News host Shepard Smith pointed out, it’s been lie after lie after lie.
This website has documented the trail of lies through radio, and print, feel free to catch up if you somehow don’t know what’s going on.
The scary part of this story lies within it’s evolution, every single day the narrative of this meeting becomes more and more worrisome, namely because there is a growing list of people who were in attendance.
We were initially led to believe that meeting consisted of Trump Jr, Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, Rod Goldstone, Natalia Veselnitskaya.
But that wasn’t the full story was it?
There was other confirmed players in that room.
Russian-American lobbyist, Rinat Akhmetshin, and translator Anatoli Samachornov, a US citizen with “no ties to the Russian government”.
Lets be clear, Rinat Akhmetshin has direct ties to Russian intelligence, the New York Times actually published that Akhmetshin is the “Master of the Dark Arts”.
Feel free to consume his resume with the link we have provided, the man is scandalous business, especially in the context of alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.
The revelations have intensified the gravity of this historical narrative, we are officially in uncharted territory, and there is miles to go before we know what happened.
What we do know is that this meeting was the primer, the dominos fell after this flim flam was executed.
Check the timeline.
Trump made an odd prognostication before this meeting, Trump started tweeting obscure facts after this meeting, WikiLeaks took Hillary Clinton to the woodshed after this meeting, and the rest is history.
There might be more instances of direct cooperation between subordinates of Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, but we can only analyze what we have in front of us, and what we have is a shameful example of cooperation between a hostile government, and an ambitious group of American men hell bent on seizing ultimate power, and defrauding 320 million Americans.
Whether or not they actually broke the law is immaterial, they violated the expectations of honor, and integrity, the selfish decision to facilitate this meeting has tarnished Trump’s Presidency to lengths that historians won’t be able to appraise for years.
The meeting, the premise, the timeline, all of this is real bad, but it has been exacerbatedby the dishonest, the constant drip drip of information that rocks the White House on a daily basis.
The drip is going to continue, because there was an 8th person in this meeting and we STIL DONT KNOW WHO IT WAS.
Think about that.
With all of this controversy, with a President staring down the barrel of impeachment, the White House still won’t come clean about who was in that meeting.
Trump’s lawyers have offered details, but the identity of this person is still a secret.
The Trump administration called this a nothing burger, Trump family lawyers have stated no crime took place, but they refuse to reveal who the 4th Russian in the room was?
The American people have a right to know, this was a clear act of subversion by a group of citizens that are likely headed to federal prison, and the record will show that all of them were dishonest time and time again.
We have no reason to believe what either side has to say, even the translator.
The Russian government has a long history of deputizing Russian-American citizens, none of us want to hear the babe in the woods routine from ANYBODY in that was in that room.
Here is the terrifying part.
There has been a web of lies and deception streaming out of everyone who attended the meeting, so why should we believe that an agreement was not reached during the gathering?
Trump Jr claims the woman had nothing to offer, but now admits Russian intelligence operatives were in the room, did they have nothing to offer?
Since the campaign to destroy Hillary jumped off around the time this meeting was arranged, logical reasoning dictates that some type of exchange took place at that meeting.
Many laughed at Trump Jr’s claim that adoption was discussed, but that might end up being very true, and a big incentive for Vladimir Putin to influence the American election.
The Trump administration knows who this 8th person was, and CNN reporting earlier today indicates that Robert Mueller is aware as well.
The 8th person has been identified.
The eighth person who attended the June 2016 meeting with Donald Trump Jr. at Trump Tower is a senior vice president at the company founded by the Russian oligarch who initiated the meeting, CNN has learned.

This story gets worse and worse by the second.
In this meeting, you had Russian intelligence operatives, a Russian attorney who specializes in fighting sanctions, a publicist with direct ties to the Kremlin, a high ranking businessman who works at a company controlled by a Russian Oligarch, and senior advisors to the President of the United States.
Jared Kusher also neglected to publish some of these names on his security clearance form, along with 100 other names allegedly.
How can he keep his security clearance?
That is a fact, not fake news.
