- In the emails, Goldstone suggested a plan for then-candidate Donald Trump to create a page on a Russian social-networking website.
- Goldstone also emailed an article about Russian hacking of the Democratic National Committee to Russians who were at the Trump Tower meeting, calling them “eerily weird” because of what they had discussed at the meeting.
Rob Goldstone, a music publicist who set up a meeting between Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort and a Kremlin-linked lawyer in June last year, reportedly sent follow-up emails to a Trump aide afterward, CNN reported on Thursday.
Goldstone reportedly sent an email to Trump aide Dan Scavino, who is now the White House director of social media, encouraging him to persuade Trump to publish a page on VK, a Russian social-networking website. In the email, Goldstone also mentioned that Trump Jr. and then-campaign chairman Manafort would go along with the idea.
