BREAKING: Russian So-Called “Spy” Who Works with DEMOCRATIC FUSION GPS was also at Trump Jr’s Russian Lawyer Meeting

Russian-American lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin admitted Friday he attended a June 2016 meeting with Donald Trump Jr. at the Trump Tower in Manhattan.

The liberal media jumped on the story noting that Akhmetshin a Russian operative and was helping Trump get elected.

But Rinat Akhmetshin was working with Fusion GPS, an organization linked to the Democrat Party, and has  worked the shadowy corners of the Washington lobbying scene for nearly 20 years.

What the media is not saying is that Rinat Akhmetshin worked for Fusion GPS, the organization behind the discredited Trump Russia dossier.

Medium reported:

Today, Fusion GPS employee Rinat Akhmetshin today confirmed his attendance at a meeting with Donald Trump Jr, Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner along with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.

Accusations have arisen that the meeting was part of a wider setup to achieve a FISA warrant to wiretap phones of the Trump campaign during 2016. President Trump himself has accused the FBI under Loretta Lynch of wiretapping his campaign.

Akhmetshin was linked to Fusion GPS and involved in a pro-Russian campaign in 2016 which involved lobbying congressional staffers to undermine the Magnitsky Act.

Glenn Simpson, the founder of Fusion GPS, the group behind the discredited Trump Dossier, cancelled his testimony before Congress next week.
