下面是我在推特上就通俄门事件的部分评论。


国会要求川普的一些竞选助手递交电子邮件,班农和伊万卡顿时吓尿了。班农递交了几千页的相关文件。班农是否将“法制基金”的文件也上交给国会去调查了?




The Mueller report is out — here's everyone who has been charged and convicted in the Russia probe so far

Mueller has submitted his final report — here are all the known contacts between the Trump campaign and Russian government-linked people or entities
https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-campaign-russia-government-contact-timeline-2018-7

穆勒的报告应该很快就会递交给司法部长。

且不说穆勒报告的内容,单只看穆勒调查过程中已经起诉的人:

Paul Manafort马纳福特,川普竞选委员会主席
Rick Gates,马纳福特的副手,川普竞选委员会副主席
科恩:担任川普私人律师12年
George Papadopoulos川普竞选顾问
Roger Stone 罗杰·斯通, 川普的竞选顾问
Michael Flynn川普的首任国家安全顾问,是基辛格在尼克松曾经担任的角色。

上面的这些人都是川普竞选团队的核心成员,除了斯通正在等待审判外,其他人都已经承认有罪甚至已经判刑。

另外,包括川普的大儿子小川普,女婿库什纳等人都有确凿证据在川普竞选期间以各种方式同俄罗斯间谍有各种联系。

川普团队的前十位核心成员,至少有八人同俄罗斯间谍私下勾结。

这些人如果是没有大老板的同意甚至授意,会私自同俄罗斯间谍勾结吗?如果有一或二人私下勾结外国间谍,或许有可能。

但是,川普竞选团队的核心成员几乎有八成同俄罗斯间谍暗地里勾结,狼狈为奸,没有大老板的授意和统一指挥,几乎就是不可能发生的事件。

上述被起诉的或判刑的人,几乎都有一条罪状是撒谎,他们都拼命掩盖他们同俄罗斯间谍的各种联系。

他们为什么要拼命掩盖同俄罗斯人的联系?这必定是有见不得人的勾当,而且必定是曾经有攻守同盟,要统一口径地掩盖同俄罗斯人的联系和各种交易,他们都明知道这是叛国罪。

这些人冒着叛国罪的风险,去同俄罗斯间谍秘密勾结,而得到的结果就是为了帮助川普成功当上总统,所承担的风险则是被判刑入狱。有哪个人会愚蠢到这种程度去干这种蠢事吗?除非是受到川普的指使并且得到川普的某种承诺才会去干这种有巨大风险的卖国勾当。

川粉支持川普的理由之一是川普高智商,会作生意。可一张照片就能证明川普的智商归零了!


前天,3月21日,川普举着这张照片,向记者反复说,上面的红点标的是恐怖组织ISIS在叙利亚的占领区域。下面的图形表示ISIS被统统消灭。

川普将剿灭ISIS完全归功于自己。

可是,剿灭ISIS同川普有一毛钱关系吗?

剿灭ISIS的美军都是奥巴马总统就任期间派去的,川普唯一做的就是反复不断地指责奥巴马总统派遣这些美军,以及下令撤回这些美军。

川普的这种伎俩,就如同将世界上所有死亡的人都归功于他川普一样地弱智,将希特勒、萨达姆、卡扎菲的死亡都说成是他川普派美军予以消灭的同样地颠倒是非、贪天功为己有!真是滑天下之大稽!


3月20日,川普在白宫有又一次攻击特别检察官穆勒,声称他川普获得了很多选票,而穆勒不曾获得一张选票,一个没获得过选票的人居然来调查活动上千万选票的人。
川普还不如干脆说,所有的足球、篮球裁判都不曾进过一个球,有什么权力对场上球员给红牌,将参赛队员罚下场啊?

穆勒调查川普团队通俄门的报告终于完成了。可是,尚未看到穆勒报告之前,一些川粉就开始欢呼胜利了,说川普又赢了。

陆东自称是当今世界最最超前的预言家、阴谋家,居然就闭着眼睛宣布川普胜利了。陆东能将自己混成一个铁杆郭粉加铁杆川粉,那就是双倍的铁杆脑残嘛。

现在人们争论的焦点是通俄门事件究竟是否存在。

穆勒报告中已经汇总了7名川普竞选团队重要成员被起诉、被判刑,分别是上面列出的科恩、马纳福特、菲林、斯通、Gates、Papadopoulos等人,这些人都被坐实秘密勾结俄罗斯间谍来干涉美国大选,帮助川普成功竞选总统。他们还都有一条罪名:撒谎!

他们为什么撒谎?撒了哪些谎?

他们首先是否认同俄罗斯间谍有联系,这是被证明撒谎。

其实,他们最最主要的撒谎是拒不讲出受谁指使去勾结俄罗斯间谍。

另外,川普的儿子、女婿库什纳都在川普大厦同俄罗斯间谍有秘密会晤。科恩在国会作证时已经交待了川普儿子同川普低声耳语:一切都安排好了。

川普当时就对他儿子说:随时向我汇报。

川普竞选团队中除了被起诉的七人外,其他的重要成员就是川普、彭斯、班农、康维、库什纳、小川普、伊万卡。在这14人中,只有彭斯和康维不曾同俄罗斯间谍勾结,能够坐实同俄罗斯间谍有勾结的有9人,占川普团队核心成员的6成。

另外,穆勒已经起诉的俄罗斯方面同川普团队联络的间谍或渗透美国大选的俄罗斯黑客有25人,俄罗斯公司三家。

捉贼捉双。穆勒调查的通俄门事件,已经抓捕的川普团队成员7人,俄罗斯方面多达30人,这岂止是捉贼捉双,简直就是捉奸在床了嘛!

就仅仅根据穆勒已经起诉的37人和公司,说川普团队串通俄罗斯间谍干预美国大选,这是板上钉钉,任何人都无法否认的了。

现在的问题就是:

1. 那些俄罗斯间谍是受谁指使?普廷是否直接给这些间谍下令?
2. 川普团队的那些被起诉、被判刑的人,究竟是受谁指使去勾结俄罗斯间谍?

3. 他们为何要撒谎?要掩盖的真相是什么?
4. 川普团队同俄罗斯间谍勾结的目的是什么?最后使谁受益?
5. 今后是否要起诉川普的儿子小川普以及女婿库什纳?
6. 以何种方式追究川普和普京的责任?
7. 川普是否是服务于俄罗斯的利益?
8. 今后如何防范外国间谍干涉美国大选?

这些问题都是不言自明的。

川普竞选委员会主席马纳福特




U.S. President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort arrives for a hearing at U.S. District Court in Washington, U.S., November 2, 2017.

马纳福特(Paul Manafort),川普竞选委员会主席。2016年4月,马纳福特同俄罗斯及乌克兰双料间谍康斯坦丁·基里姆尼克(Konstantin Kilimnik)多次共享俄罗斯的间谍信息和数据。

April 2016: Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort shares polling data with Konstantin Kilimnik, a Russian-Ukrainian political operative.

Konstantin Kilimnk, a political operative and former member of Russian intelligence, had been a long-time associate of Manafort, who worked for several years in Ukraine and Eastern Europe as a political consultant and financier.

According to a court filing submitted by Manafort's lawyers, Manafort shared campaign polling data with Kilimnik. The New York Times reported the data was then passed onto Ukrainian oligarchs Serhiy Lyovochkin and Rinat Akhmetov, who reportedly owed Manafort money.

-----------------------

April 2016: Manafort and Kilimnik discuss briefing Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska on the campaign's operations

Manafort inquired if Russian billionaire oligarch Oleg Deripaska knew about Manafort joining the campaign, to which Kilimnik replied, "absolutely." Manafort then asked, "How do we use to get to whole?"

The emails between Manafort and Kilimnik suggest that Manafort sought to take advantage of the influence he had from his role on Trump's campaign, which was unpaid, to make up for a significant financial debt he owed to Deripaska.

Deripaska gave Manafort almost $19 million dollars in 2008 for use of the purchase of a Ukrainian company, but the investment fell through and their relationship went south. It was later revealed in June 2018 that Manafort owed Deripaska another $10 million on top of the previously known $19 million.

Sources:Business Insider,The Atlantic,
--------------------------------------

July 7, 2016: Manafort offers "private briefings" on the campaign to the Kremlin-linked oligarch Oleg Deripaska.
The Washington Post reported in September 2017 that Paul Manafort had, over a period of months, corresponded with Kilmnik on the subject of giving "private briefings" on the Trump campaign to Deripaska, the oligarch to whom Manafort owed tens of millions of dollars.

The emails, which were subsequently turned over to both Special Counsel Mueller's office and to congressional investigators, don't show proof that Deripaska was made aware of the offer or that any private meetings or briefings actually occurred.

Manafort was sentenced to a total of seven and a half years in federal prison earlier this month after facing two multi-count federal indictments charging him with numerous crimes related to fraud and obstruction of justice.

Neither set of charges were explicitly related to the Trump's campaign's communications with Russia, and revolve mostly around Manafort's decades of working on behalf of Eastern European governments.

Manafort went to trial and was convicted on 8 charges of tax and bank fraud in the Eastern District of Virginia in August 2018. He entered into a plea agreement with Mueller ahead of his second trial - but the deal fell apart when Mueller accused Manafort of lying in his conversations with investigators.

Source:Business Insider, Washington Post,Business Insider
----------------------------------------------------------

August 2016: Manafort and Kilimnik have more meetings.


Manafort and Kilimnik agreed to meet in New York twice, and they reportedly did so in early August. The meeting became a subject of interest to investigators, but Kilimnik maintained it was to discuss private matters and had nothing to do with politics or the campaign.

On August 14th, The New York Times published a story revealing Manafort had been secretly paid millions of dollars off the books by Ukrainian president Victor Yanukovych's party.

Soon after, the Associated Press reported that Manafort's political consulting firm had carried out lobbying on behalf of Yanukovych's party in the US, but hadn't registered as a foreign agent with the State Department.

Manafort formally resigned from the Trump campaign on August 19th. His close aide and deputy Rick Gates remained on staff.

Michael Flynn川普的首任国家安全顾问,是基辛格在尼克松曾经担任的角色。

December 22, 2016: Gen. Michael Flynn, a national security advisor on Trump's campaign, reached out to Kislyak regarding a vote at the UN.

An indictment filed by Mueller's office in December 2017 revealed that Flynn contacted Kislyak requesting that Russia "vote against or delay" against a UN resolution regarding Israeli settlements in Palestinian territory.

Flynn struck a plea deal with Mueller to plead guilty on one count of making false statements to the FBI (regarding his communications with Russia) in exchange for cooperation with the special counsel investigation.

Flynn has cooperated with the Mueller probe since December 2017, and has not yet been sentenced. In a December 2018 sentencing memo, Mueller's team recommended a shorter sentence for Flynn, saying he had met with the special counsel's office 19 times and provided early — and invaluable — assistance.

The memo said Flynn "provided firsthand information about the content and interactions between [Trump's] transition team and Russian government officials."

Sources: Washington Post,Business Insider
----------------------------------------

December 29, 2016: Flynn and Kislyak continue to communicate on the subject of US sanctions on Russia.

Flynn and Kislyak called eachother multiple times on December 29th, the day President Obama announced sanctions against Russia and the expulsion of Russian intelligence operatives from the US in response to Russian hacking and interference in the 2016 election.

The calls "occurred between the time the Russian embassy was told about U.S. sanctions and the announcement by Russian President Vladimir Putin that he had decided against reprisals," according to Reuters.

The charges filed against Flynn by the special counsel's office say that Kislyak contacted Flynn on December 31st to inform him that the Kremlin had decided not to impose retaliatory sanctions against the US "at the Trump team's request."

科恩:担任川普私人律师12年

November 2015: Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen reaches out to Russian weight-lifter Dmitry Klokov in an attempt to secure a deal with Russian President Vladimir Putin to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.

Ivanka Trump, daughter of President Donald Trump, reportedly first put Cohen and Klokov in contact, according to emails Buzzfeed News reviewed.

In one email, Klokov claimed "he could arrange a meeting between Donald Trump and Putin to help pave the way for the tower."

Cohen then refused the offer, telling Klokov there was an existing agreement to build a Trump Tower between Russia and the Trump Organization.

The nature of Klokov's relationship to Putin is unclear, but he and Cohen exchanged several emails in the fall of 2015.

In December 2018, Cohen pleaded guilty in the special counsel probe for lying about the timing during which the Trump Organization pursued the Trump Tower deal to the House Intelligence Committee in his 2017 congressional testimony.

Mueller's sentencing memo said that "in or around November 2015, Cohen received the contact information for, and spoke with, a Russian national who claimed to be a "trusted person" in the Russian Federation who could offer the campaign "political synergy" and "synergy on a government level," with the Russian national believed to be Klokov.

Source: BuzzFeed, Business Insider
-------------------------------------
January 2016: Cohen reaches out to Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov asking about the Trump Tower deal.

The Kremlin has since confirmed that they received Cohen's email, but did not reply. Cohen then called Peskov's assistant on or around Jan. 20, describing to her his position at the Trump Organization and how the Kremlin could help arrange the Trump Tower deal.

Cohen "requested assistance in moving the project forward, both in securing land to build the proposed tower and financing the construction," prosecutors say.

The Trump Tower deal is coming under renewed scrutiny in light of a recent bombshell Buzzfeed News report claiming that Trump personally directed Cohen to lie about the deal in his September 2017 testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Sources: Washington Post,US Department of Justice,Buzzfeed News
-------------------------------------

January 9, 2017: Michael Cohen met with a Russian oligarch in Trump Tower.

Cohen and Viktor Vekselberg, a Russian billionaire with ties to the Kremlin, talked about "a mutual desire to strengthen Russia's relations with the United States under President Trump," according to the New York Times.

Andrew Intrater, an American business associate of Vekselberg's who attended the meeting, gave Cohen a $1 million contract for his consulting services shortly after the inauguration.

瑞克·盖茨(Rick Gates),川普竞选委员会副主席

September 2016: Trump campaign aide Rick Gates makes contact with an unidentified person with ties to Russian intelligence.

A court filing released in March 2018 from special counsel Mueller's office revealed that Rick Gates — Manafort's former deputy — had contacts with an unidentified person connected to Russian intelligence while Gates worked on the Trump campaign.

Those contacts took place during September and October of 2016, according to the special counsel's office.

Gates, along with Manafort, was indicted by a grand jury on 12 counts of conspiracy, money laundering, making false statements to investigators, and failing to register as a foreign agent in October 2017.

In February 2018, Gates made an agreement to plead guilty to one count of making false statements and one count of conspiracy against the United States in exchange for cooperating with Mueller's investigation.

帕帕多普洛斯(George Papadopoulos), 川普竞选顾问。在2016年3月24日,帕帕多普洛斯和米夫苏德在伦敦同俄罗斯女谍见面商讨安排川普竞选团队同俄罗斯人见面开会的相关事宜。2016年4月18日,通过米夫苏德的引荐,帕帕多普洛斯同俄罗斯外事委员会主席Ivan Timofeev私下见面,此后,双方多次通过电子邮件和网络视频商讨如何安排川普竞选团队同俄罗斯政府机构建立联系。

2016年4月26日,在伦敦见面时,米夫苏德告知帕帕多普洛斯,俄罗斯间谍机构已经盗取了关于希拉里的丑闻,声称掌握了数千关于希拉里的电子邮件。这比维基解密泄漏希拉里团队的电子邮件要早整整三个月!

Papadopoulos, 29, joined the Trump campaign as an unpaid adviser in March 2016.

But from his low-level position, Papadopoulos took on an outsize role in trying to facilitate communications and set up meetings between the Trump campaign and Russia.

One of his main contacts was Joseph Mifsud, the director of the London Academy of Diplomacy, a for-profit college program that was later shut down. Mifsud boasted of having "substantial connections to Russian officials," according to court documents.

Despite having scant credentials or expertise on Russia, Mifsud became active in elite Russian political circles after one of his interns, a 24-year-old Russian woman, introduced him to several high-level diplomats and scholars, The New York Times reported.

Mifsud even gained admission into the prestigious Valdai Discussion Club, a group of foreign policy scholars who host an annual meeting with Putin.

Sources: The New York Times, Lawfare, Washington Post
-------------------------------------------

April 18, 2016: Mifsud introduced Papadopoulos over email to Ivan Timofeev, a Director at the Kremlin-linked Russian International Affairs Council who claimed to have ties to Russia's foreign ministry.

Papadopoulos and Timofeev exchanged several emails during that period and had at least two Skype conversations, discussing the logistics of setting up a meeting between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.

Sources: The New York Times, US District Court for the District of Columbia
------------------------------------------

April 26, 2016: During a meeting in London, Mifsud told Papadopoulos that the Russians had "dirt" on Hillary Clinton.

In the meeting, Mifsud reportedly claimed the "dirt" on Clinton came in the form of "thousands of emails."

The April meeting took place three months before Wikileaks released approximately 20,000 emails hacked from the server of the Democratic National Committee, which revealed how DNC staffers sought to secure the nomination of Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders.

The next month, Papadopoulos told Australian intelligence official Alexander Downer about the Clinton emails over drinks at a swanky London bar. Downer then tipped off US authorities to the conversation, sparking the initial FBI investigation into the Trump campaign's contacts with Russia.

In December 2017, Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to one count of lying to the FBI about his conversations with Mifsud. He served 14 days in prison in November 2018.

Source: The New York Times
-------------------------------------
Ten days after Papadopoulos and Mifsud first made contact in Italy, the two met again — this time with a Russian woman who Papadopoulos described as "Putin's niece" in an email to Trump campaign co-chairman Sam Clovis.

The woman, later identified as Olga Polonskaya, has no relation to Putin.

In April, Papadopoulos and Polonskaya exchanged several emails discussing the possibility of the Trump campaign making a foreign policy trip to Russia.

"We are all very excited by the possibility of a good relationship with Mr. Trump. The Russian Federation would love to welcome him once his candidature would be officially announced," Polonskaya wrote in one email.

In October 2017, Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI regarding his contacts with Russian-linked people, and became a cooperating witness in the Mueller probe.

Sources: The New York Times, US District Court for the District of Columbia

April 29-30, 2016: George Papadopoulos continues to communicate with Mifsud and Polonskaya.

On the 29th, he emailed Polonskaya again about a potential trip to Russia. On the 30th, he reached out to Mifsud to thank him "for his 'critical help' in arranging a meeting between the Campaign and the Russian government."

Source:US Department of Justice
-------------------------------

Timofeev emailed Papadopoulos again on May 8th to inquire about putting him in contact with the US desk at the MFA.

In the following weeks, Timofeev and Papadopoulos had at least one Skype call where Timofeev reported a "good reaction" to the idea of a visit from his colleagues in the foreign affairs ministry.

In a May 13th email to Papadopoulos, Mifsud wrote, "we will continue to liaise through you with the Russian counterparts in terms of what is needed for a high level meeting of Mr. Trump with the Russian federation."

斯通同俄罗斯及维基解密的勾结




罗杰·斯通(Roger Stone)
Early May 2016: Trump campaign advisor Roger Stone meets with a Russian offering him dirt on Hillary Clinton in exchange for $2 million. He declines.

The 2016 meeting between Stone and the Russian, Henry Greenberg, was not disclosed to congressional investigators and unknown until the Washington Post reported on it in June of 2018.

Stone reportedly told Greenberg that Trump "doesn't pay for anything."

In text messages between Stone and Trump campaign communications official Michael Caputo, Stone said Greenberg "wants big &$ for the info--waste of time."

Greenberg, who has also used the last name Oknyansky, has previously worked as an FBI informant but was not doing so at the time of the meeting.

Sources: Washington Post
------------------------

August 14, 2016: Roger Stone direct messages Guccifer 2.0, a persona created by Russian intelligence who claimed responsibility for the hack of the DNC's emails, on Twitter.

"Glad to see you are re-instated," Stone wrote to Guccifer after a previous suspension of his Twitter account had been lifted.

After the Washington Post reported that the DNC was hacked by Russian operatives, Stone responded by writing in Breitbart in July 2016 claiming that Guccifer, "a lone hacker," and not the Russian government carried out the hacking.

Over the following weeks, Stone and Guccifer exchanged several messages on Twitter in which Guccifer expressed admiration for Stone and offered to assist the Trump campaign.

"please tell me if i can help u anyhow," Guccifer wrote in one message.

US intelligence officials had long suspected that Guccifer was either a real person linked to Russian intelligence or a fake persona they had created. In March of 2018, that suspicion was confirmed when Guccifer accidentally revealed himself to be Russian security officer.

In July 2018, the Russian intelligence officers who had created the Guccifer profile were charged by the Special Counsel for conspiracy against the United States, aggravated identity theft, and money laundering in relation to the hacks of the DNC, DCCC, and Clinton campaign.

September 9, 2016: Guccifer 2.0 contacts Stone again with data obtained through hacking.
Guccifer 2.0 direct messaged Stone a link to Florida political operative's blog, which published Florida voter turnout data obtained by Guccifer in a hack of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).

Stone replied, deeming the information "pretty standard."

Source:Wall Street Journal, Business Insider
---------------------------------------------
October 13, 2016: Stone directly messages WikiLeaks over Twitter. They had previously communicated only through an intermediary.
Stone messaged WikiLeaks confronting them with his "defense of Assange and the organization" on Twitter after WikiLeaks put out a statement claiming to have never spoken with Stone.

Stone previously testified under oath before Congress in September 2016 that he had communicated with WikiLeaks through intermediaries, later revealed to be radio host Randy Credico and conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi.

After asking Stone not to publicly affiliate himself with Wikileaks, Stone told them to "remember who their friends were."

Stone, who has worked as a political consultant for Trump since the 1980s, was arrested and charged with one count of obstruction of justice, five counts of false statements, and one count of witness tampering, in January. He plans to plead not guilty.

The indictment charging Stone alleges that Stone made "multiple false statements to [the House Intelligence Committee] about his interactions regarding Organization 1, and falsely denied possessing records that contained evidence of these interactions" in 2017 testimony. Organization 1 is believed to be WikiLeaks.

Not only is making false statements to Congress a crime, but the indictment said that Stone's misleading testimony deliberated obstructed ongoing investigations by the FBI, House Intelligence Committee, and Senate Intelligence Committee.

川普团队其他成员同俄罗斯的秘密勾结:



赛辛斯(川普竞选顾问、后来担任司法部长)同俄罗斯的秘密勾结




April 27, 2016: Then-campaign advisors Jeff Sessions and Jared Kushner met with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak at a reception before Trump gave a speech on foreign policy at the Mayflower Hotel.

In the speech, which was edited by Papalodopous, Trump vowed to improve relations with Russia by collaborating on "shared interests."

Ambassador Kislyak said he and Sessions discussed policy matters related to Russia, which Sessions denied. US intelligence officials later described them as having had a "substantive conversation."

After the event, Papadopoulos emailed then-campaign manager Corey Lewandowski saying "Putin wants to host the Trump team when the time is right."
Source: Washington Post
-------------------------------------

July 18-20, 2016: Jeff Sessions, J.D. Gordon, and Carter Page all spoke to Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio.

Trump campaign foreign policy advisors J.D. Gordon and Carter Page told congressional investigators they met Kislyak at an RNC event attended by other diplomats.

Gordon said his interaction with Kislyak wasn't lengthy, but Page told congressional investigators that when he spoke to Kislyak, the subject of American sanctions on Russia "may have briefly come up in some context."

Sessions, who spoke with Kislyak after speaking at a private luncheon, originally did not disclose the meeting to congressional investigators.

Just a day after Trump became the Republican nominee for President, Wikileaks released over 20,000 emails obtained through the hacking of the Democratic National Committee by Russia.

Sessions said the meeting, which was not originally disclosed during his January 2017 confirmation hearing, was also attended by two or three of his staffers. The Washington Post broke the story two months after the hearing.

In March of 2017, Sessions said they "listened to the ambassador and what his concerns might be," and discussed issues such as terrorism, travel to Russia, and Ukraine in the September 2016 meeting.

"I don't recall any specific political discussions," Sessions remarked.

When Sessions' previously undisclosed contacts with Russians were revealed, several top democrats called on him to resign, accusing him of perjury. Sessions later recused himself altogether from presiding over the Russia investigation, much to Trump's chagrin.

Alexander Torshin, a former Russian senator from Putin's party and a former senior official at Russia's central bank told Bloomberg he had dinner with Donald Trump Jr., the president's son, at the annual convention for the National Rifle Association.

The White House confirmed they had met, but denied that they dined together. Torshin also reportedly tried to meet with Trump, an offer turned down by Jared Kushner.

Torshin is now accused of directing an effort to infiltrate American conservative organizations including the National Rifle Association and the National Prayer Breakfast to promote Russian interests, traveling everywhere from Alaska to Tennessee in his efforts.

He has since been sanctioned from the US Treasury Department, meaning he can no longer travel to the US.

Goldstone contacted Donald Jr. on behalf of one of this clients, musician Emin Agalarov, whose father is a real estate developer with close ties to Putin.

In an email, Goldstone said Agalarov could provide "very high level and sensitive information" that would "incriminate Hillary" and was a part in "Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump."

Donald Jr. quickly replied: "If it's what you say I love it especially later in the summer." Donald Jr. and Agalarov then spoke on the phone at least twice between June 6th and 7th.

On June 7th, Donald Trump promised "a major speech about Hillary Clinton's crimes."

September 20, 2016: Wikileaks and Donald Trump Jr. begin a month-long series of communications over Twitter.

Wikileaks reached out to Trump Jr. to send him the username and password for a website belonging to a "PAC run anti-Trump site."

The US intelligence community now believes "with high confidence" that the Russian government enlisted the help of Wikileaks in disseminating hacked emails from the DNC, according to a report from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

They published and distributed thousands of emails hacked from the DNC on the first day of the Democratic National Convention, and later released hacked emails from the email account of Clinton staffer John Podesta the day after the release of the Access Hollywood tape in which Trump bragged about groping women.

Trump Jr. responded the following day, thanking Wikileaks for the information, and telling them he would "ask around" about it. He then forwarded the tweet to several senior campaign officials.

A few weeks later, Wikileaks asked Trump Jr. to "comment/push" an article about Hillary Clinton, which he did. Trump Jr. then inquired about a unpublished leak referenced in one of of Stone's tweets.

On October 12th, Wikileaks requested that Trump Jr. tell his father to tweet out links to Wikileaks stories, which he did.

The messages between Trump Jr. and Wikileaks were turned over to congressional investigators.

The Trump campaign's then-national security director JD Gordon had some social interactions with gun rights activist Maria Butina, who was indicted on charges of being a Russian spy in July 2018.

Gordon, a former Pentagon spokesman, met Butina at multiple Republican party events and communicated with her over email before Trump's election in September and October 2016, according to emails reviewed by the Washington Post.

The emails involved discussions of US-Russia relations and some social invitations, in which Gordon invited Butina to a Styx concert, and then to his birthday party.

Prosecutors in Washington, DC are alleging that Butina, 29, infiltrated American right-wing circles and organizations such as the National Rifle Association, to advance Russian government interests without registering as a foreign agent, as is required by US law.

In a statement to the Post, Gordon called the Butina story "sensationalized clickbait," and denied any wrongdoing, arguing that Butina was eager to network and discuss US-Russian relations with a number of Republican officials.

In December, Butina plead guilty to one count of conspiring to act as unregistered foreign agent on behalf of Russian interests.

Emin Agalarov sent Trump Jr. a text message shortly after the election which read,

"Don!!! Amazing run and a glorious victory!!!!! Congratulations to you and your dad, we are proud and happy for you !!!!!! Always at your disposal here in Russia [] Emin and Aras Agalarov@."

The close relationship between the Agalarov and Trump families is a subject of interest by both the Mueller probe and congressional investigations, which are both looking into the extent to which Aras and Emin Agalarov served as go-betweens for the Trump campaign and Putin.

In June 2018, Emin released a music video for a song titled "You Got Me Good," in which actors playing Trump, Stormy Daniels, Michael Cohen, Hillary Clinton, Ivanka and Jared Kushner, and even Kim Jong-un reenact some of Trump's biggest scandals.

A month after Trump's election, White House advisor Jared Kushner and Russian ambassador Kislyak met to discuss setting up a "secret and secure communications channel" between the Russian government and Trump's transition team.

According to intelligence briefings reported on by the Washington Post, Kushner suggested using Russian diplomatic equipment and resources to facilitate the communications.

The meeting, which was not disclosed until March of 2017, was also attended by General Michael Flynn.

Kushner also reportedly met with Sergey Gorkov, the President of Russian state-run bank VEB, as part of the transition's efforts to establish a back-channel.

Such a back-channel never materialized, but the meeting became a subject of the Mueller probe and congressional investigations.

In January 2017, Erik Prince, the founder of private security firm Blackwater and the brother of Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, met with Kirril Dmitriev, a Russian billionaire and the head of an investment firm sanctioned by the US Treasury Department.

Prince maintained that his meeting with Dmitriev was a chance encounter that only happened because they both happened to be at a luxury hotel in the Seychelles at the same time.

But George Nader, an American-Lebanese businessman who attended the meeting and is a cooperating witness in the Mueller probe, said the meeting was not only planned in advance, but was part of an effort to create an unmonitored back channel between the White House and the Kremlin.

In June 2018, Prince confirmed he "cooperated" with the Mueller probe, and allowed the special counsel's office to review communication records from his phone and computer.

Goldstone contacted Donald Jr. on behalf of one of this clients, musician Emin Agalarov, whose father is a real estate developer with close ties to Putin.

In an email, Goldstone said Agalarov could provide "very high level and sensitive information" that would "incriminate Hillary" and was a part in "Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump."

Donald Jr. quickly replied: "If it's what you say I love it especially later in the summer." Donald Jr. and Agalarov then spoke on the phone at least twice between June 6th and 7th.

On June 7th, Donald Trump promised "a major speech about Hillary Clinton's crimes."

June 9, 2016: Trump campaign officials meet Russian lobbyists in Trump Tower.

In what is now known as the infamous "Trump Tower meeting," Donald Trump Jr, Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort met with Russian attorney and Kremlin affiliate Natalia Veselnitskaya, as well as a four other people affiliated with Russia in Trump Tower in Manhattan.

The Trump campaign attended the meeting under the impression that they would receive the damaging information about Clinton they were promised. But Veselnitskaya came with nothing on Hillary Clinton. Her mission was instead to prove that major Democratic donors were evading taxes, and to lobby against the Magnitsky Act.

The Magnitsky Act, passed in 2012, freezes the assets and real estate and bars entry to the US for high-level Russian officials suspected of committing human rights abuses. In retaliation for the Act, Russia banned US adoptions of Russian children.

Veselnitskaya later said Donald Jr. seemed receptive to re-visiting the Magnitsky Act if his father were elected. Donald claimed Veselnitskaya was there in an unofficial capacity.

Subsequent reporting, however, suggests Veselnitskaya was in fact working on behalf of the Kremlin at the time. A memo she brought with her to the meeting almost identically matched one written by Russia's chief prosecutor.

Trump campaign foreign policy advisor Carter Page went on a trip to Russia to give a speech at the commencement ceremony for the New Economic School in Moscow, Russia.

While there, he met with Andrey Baranov, head of investor relations at Russian state oil company Rosneft, and with Russian deputy prime minister Arkady Dvorkovich.

Page became under investigation by the FBI in September 2016 for pursuing contacts with Russians under sanction by the Magnitsky Act, including the CEO of Rosneft.

After he stepped down from his role in the Trump campaign in fall 2016, the FBI obtained a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) to surveil Page's communications. They suspected him of being a foreign agent engaging in intelligence operations on behalf of the Russian government.

Page, however, was never charged with a crime.

Special counsel Robert Mueller submitted his final report into his nearly two-year-long investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and the Trump campaign's contacts with Russia to Attorney General William Barr on March 22.

Mueller's probe into Russian election interference and possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia indicted three Russian companies and 34 people, including eight Americans affiliated with the Trump campaign or administration.

As it currently stands, there are now more than 101 known points of contact between the Trump campaign and Russian-government linked people or entities, including 23 meetings or calls.

Sixteen Trump campaign officials are known to have had direct contact with a Russian government official or a Russian-linked operative, and at least an additional nine campaign officials were aware of these contacts.

Trump campaign officials had meetings, calls, and digital correspondence with high-level Russian government officials, billionaires linked to Putin, an accused Russian spy, and hackers enlisted by Russian intelligence to meddle in the 2016 elections.

Here is a timeline of the Trump campaign's known contacts with Russia, compiled with the help of resources from the Moscow Project and the Washington Post.
