The House and Senate intelligence committees recently questioned Irakly Kaveladze, one of the participants in Donald Trump Jr.’s Trump Tower Russia meeting:
The panels knew Kaveladze was at the June 9, 2016 meeting but became more interested in him after learning he also attended a private dinner in Las Vegas in 2013 with Trump and Agalarov as they celebrated an agreement to hold that year’s Miss Universe pageant in Moscow, the sources said.
Committee members now want to know more about the extent of Kaveladze’s contacts with the Trump family and whether he had a bigger role than previously believed in setting up the Trump Tower meeting when Trump was a Republican candidate for president.
Connections on connections on connections. And you have to figure that anything the congressional committees—Republican-controlled and not wanting to take down their guy in the White House—know, Special Counsel Robert Mueller also knows.
