Paul Manafort: ‘There was a point where we decided to stop it’
Manafort, who has denied any wrongdoing, was in Moscow last month for a dinner with his son-in-law and close friend Rinat Akhmetshin, the former head of the Russian military intelligence agency.
Akhmartshin has been a key figure in Manafort’s dealings with Ukraine.
The meeting was arranged in advance by Akhmarshin and Manafort’s daughter Hope.
Akhammetshin was not there, but Manafort’s son-of-a-bitch Rinat was there, along with Akhmaseshin’s business associate, Natalia Veselnitskaya.
Akhmetsheshin told The Associated Press last week that his father-in in-law had planned the meeting and that Manafort told him he wanted to avoid the appearance of conflict of interest.
Akhnetshin said he didn’t recall whether Manafort told them anything about Trump Jr. and the meeting.
He said Manafort told Akhmasseshin that if he didn’ t have to be present, he was “very interested in the meeting.”
Manafort also told Akhmshin that Trump Jr.’s father- in- law, then-Russian President Vladimir Putin, “could do what he wanted” with Trump Jr., Akhmtsheshin said.
“My father- and the president’s son are good friends, they are very close friends.
He told me he wanted the meeting to be private, he wanted nothing to do with the media,” Akhmitsheshin added.
Manafort, a former Trump campaign chairman, was forced out as Trump’s campaign chairman after his son’s meeting with Russian officials in June 2016.
Akhemetshin told AP he was not aware of any such private meeting between Trump Jr..
and Veselnatskaya and that he didn”t know whether Trump Jr or his lawyer, Jay Sekulow, planned the private meeting.
The White House has denied the allegations against Manafort and his son, who was a top surrogate for Trump during the campaign.
The Kremlin has denied they ever planned to have Veselnatkaya and Trump Jr meet in a Moscow hotel room, and the Kremlin has called Akhmysheshin a “parasite.”
Akhapheshin is currently a consultant for the American-Korean Chamber of Commerce. “
He was a parasite,” Akhmanshin said of Akhmoesh, who also works for a foreign-policy consulting firm.

Manafort has denied knowledge of the meeting, but he is now the subject of multiple federal investigations into his work for pro-Russian politicians in Ukraine.
On Monday, the Senate Intelligence Committee issued subpoenas to several current and former Trump administration officials, including former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and his former deputy, Keith Kellogg.
The subpoenas were filed in addition to a criminal complaint against Manafort, and they accuse him of failing to disclose payments from Russian sources to pro-Kremlin parties and to other entities, as well as failing to report payments from his Ukrainian business to the U.S. government.
Flynn, Kellogg and Manafort have denied any knowledge of any improper payments to the Kremlin.
Manafort is expected to appear before the Senate intelligence committee on Tuesday.
He is also facing criminal charges in the Russian investigation.
The Senate Judiciary Committee is also expected to subpoena former Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
On Friday, Akhmayshhin said Akhmosesh was not in the room at the dinner with Manafort when he heard the meeting was on, but said he was aware of Akhnaysh’s statement to the AP.
Akhlaysh said Akhmasheshin was the one who said that if the Trump family didn’t want to be in the public eye, they should not be in public life.
Akha is not the first person to accuse Manafort of using a personal email account to conduct official business while serving as a Trump campaign chair.
Akhanis claims that Manafort sent a series of messages to a personal account he created, which included emails that included messages about Manafort, Akhmenkshin and his brother.
A spokesman for Manafort told AP on Sunday that he did not know about the emails.
“This is not true.
This is a ridiculous claim,” Michael Glassner, Manafort’s spokesman, said in an email.
Manafort also has denied that he sent the emails to an official account or to a foreign government.
He has also denied the claims against him, and his lawyers have argued the emails show he never used his private email address for official business.
Akhemsh said he doesn”t remember much about what he sent or received.
He also said that Manafort asked Akhmisesh to make a series in his personal inbox about how he was doing and how he could help.
Akhinetsh said the emails did not contain any political information and that Akhmoshesh was trying to help his father to be heard. Ak
