Rinat Akhmetshin Reportedly Worked With Company That Made Trump Pee Dossier

Source: Mediaite



by Faith Gates | 1:56 pm, July 14th, 2017

Rinat Akhmetshin has been the man of hour since revelations emerged that he attended the infamous Trump Jr meeting. But it get’s better. In addition to that, it now appears that he worked as a lobbyist along alongside Fusion GPS, the company which put together the infamous Trump dossier.

The unverified dossier was published by Buzzfeed in January and was intended as opposition research against Trump. It got it’s nickname the “Pee Tape Dossier” because of the claim contained within that Russian intelligence agencies had footage of Trump urinating on a prostitutes in a bed at the Ritz-Carlton in Moscow.

The collaboration was highlighted in a complaint filed by GOP Senator Chuck Grassley last year. According to Grassley, Akhmetshin also did not register as a foreign agent during his lobbying activities.

“It is particularly disturbing that Mr. Akhmetshin and Fusion GPS were working together on this pro-Russia lobbying effort in 2016 in light of Mr. Akhmetshin’s history and reputation. Mr. Akhmetshin is a Russian immigrant to the U.S. who has admitted having been a Soviet counterintelligence officer,” Grassley said in the complaint.

2. Idiot Grassley hasn't figured out the obvious

… which is that Fusion GPS was spying on Akhmetshin and his associates.

I would expect that Rinat Akhmetshin should be careful the next time he has some tea. That dash of Polonium and spash of Trump's leftover whizz might not be so good for his health…

10. That's my Q re the other overlap (w/Veletnitskaya and FusionGPS). Were RA & NV both being spied on?

13. Idiot Grassley is trying to turn this into a "Democrat Scandal"

That's the new WH strategy, Maddow gave us a heads up on this.

See post below for what I believe Grassley's up to.

24. Fusion GPS was originally hired by anti-Trump Republicans...

So this line of argument is ridiculous.

We should probably still be expecting a big news story after 5.

4. What does it mean to work as a lobbyist "alongside" another entity?

He didn't work FOR Fusion. So what was his relationship?

Sen. Grassley isn't someone I'd go to for reliable information.

14. See my post 12

End game is to accuse Dems of 'colluding with Russia for Trump oppo' using the Steele Dossier as 'proof' because some of Steeles sources were Russian whistle blowers.

Grassley's also been falsely claiming FBI investigation is solely based on Steele Dossier. We all know that's not at all true.

12. Not buying this. Grassley trying to distract, is part of the Republican effort to wildly

spin Steele Dossier as "Russian Oppo" research because some of Steele's sources of info regarding Trump/Russia were Russian agents.

Ignoring the fact that those sources were whistle blowers who I believe have been "disappeared" by Putin's thugs.

As Rachel said, WH new strategy is to lie and attempt convert this into a "Democratic Scandal". Grassley is a foot soldier in that game.

17. "Akhmetshin also lobbied alongside former Congressman Ron Dellums..

..who was reportedly hired by Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who also met with Trump Jr."
(From the OP)

My brain hurts too.

K&R, thanks for posting

19. So... Was Akhmetshin at the meeting to intimidate the Trumps?

It would make sense, imho. His mere presence would signal that they'd better cooperate.

And remember: these people were invited to enter Trump Tower. There were no surprises as to who was coming.

23. Maybe it went like this: "I have one and only copy OF pee tape ...

And you can have, as well as Russia's assistance in the Election, in exchange for letting Prevezon off the hook for the $240M, and your rubbishing the Sanctions ... when you become President!

By that, of course, I mean I won't actually give it to you until after those things occur ... but I promise it will be kept safe and out of reach of US Media in the meantime. How does this sound, Comrade Don?"
