WATCH: Footage of Trump Palling Around With Russian Figures

Written by July 13th 2017

Despite Donald Trump’s rehashed affirmations that he doesn’t know anything “about Russia,” new video acquired by CNN demonstrates the president hanging out with the very individuals at the focal point of Donald Trump Jr’s. dubious email correspondence.

In the video—recoreded in Las Vegas in 2013—Trump can be seen with Emin and Aras Agalarov, the Russians who professedly requested that director Bar Goldstone set up a meeting between a Russian legal counselor and Turmp Jr.

“We all think alike,” Emin Agalarov says in the video.

“These are the most powerful people in Russia, these are the richest people in Russia,” Trump later adds.

In a interview with Sean Hannity Tuesday night, Trump Jr. demanded he’d just met Emin Agalarov “on more than one occasion,” and keeping in mind that the president’s eldest child does not show up in the 2013 video, his dad absolutely appears to be affable with the Russian big shots.
