"SNIP....

Aug. 2, 2016. Manafort, Gates and Kilimnik meet at the Grand Havana Room in New York, a members-only cigar club near Trump Tower.

....

“[T]here is an in-person meeting with someone who the Government has certainly proffered to this Court in the past, is understood by the FBI, assessed to be — have a relationship with Russian intelligence,” he said, referring to Kilimnik. “And there is an in-person meeting at an unusual time for somebody who is the campaign chairman to be spending time, and to be doing it in person.”

"That meeting and what happened at that meeting is of significance to the special counsel,” he added.

Later in the transcript published Thursday, it’s revealed that Gates and Manafort took pains to leave the meeting separately from Kilimnik, in an effort, Weissman suggested, to mask their interactions with him.

What was discussed at the meeting? It's not clear.

4. Shipped him back over to the Scotland golf club?

That's where he was last time his mouth got him in trouble last year.

3. So much CORRUPTION, so much time to uncover it.....

Donald Trump has said time after time that there has been "NO COLLUSION" with Russia. That "no one in my campaign had contacts with Russians".

This certainly was a red flag to Robert Mueller and company to go in that direction, and walla! They hit the jackpot and that has Donnie's undies in a bunch. The indictments, the lying by the players Mueller has nabbed, is the tip of the iceberg.

Donald Trump is going down. It is just a matter of time. His entire world will be crashing around him and he will either be forced to resign or leave the White House in cuffs,

5. I would bet the following was discussed at the meeting:

Hillary’s e-mails
voter suppression
vote rigging
Magninski Act
money laundering
back channel communications
Alpha Bank

They had a lot to talk about.
