In their hysteria over the election of Donald Trump, liberals have been fantasizing about violence against the new president. Pop icon Madonna got it started on Inauguration Day, openly admitting she had thoughts of blowing up the White House. From there, the depictions of violence intensified. Comedian Kathy posted a picture of herself holding Trump’s severed head. Not to be outdone, the cast of the play “Julius Caesar” depicted what appeared to be the brutal assassination of the president live on stage.
“People who engage in acts of terrorism … have nothing to do with Islam,” said Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif during a Sunday-aired interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria on GPS.
A Russian-American lobbyist accompanied a Russian lawyer to a summer 2016 meeting with Donald Trump Jr., The Associated Press reports.
Rinat Akhmetshin confirmed to the AP that he was in attendance at the meeting with Trump Jr. and the lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.
A separate report from NBC News stated that an unnamed former Soviet counter-intelligence officer was in the Trump Jr. meeting.
Akhmetshin is a former member of the Russian military intelligence services, known in the U.S. as GRU, but is now an American citizen. He told AP suggestions that he has ties to Russian intelligence are part of a “smear campaign” against him, adding that he wasn’t trained as a spy.
The new detail about Akhmetshin’s involvement in the meeting is the latest wrinkle in the Russia story that has rocked Washington this week.
