Qatari Investor Confirms He Attended Trump Tower Meetings in 2016

Source: CNN

Washington (CNN) Ahmed Al-Rumaihi, a Qatari investor referenced in a series of tweets from Michael Avenatti this week, confirmed to CNN through a spokesperson on Tuesday that he did attend meetings at Trump Tower in December 2016.

The stated reason: face time with Trump transition officials.

"Mr. Al-Rumaihi was at Trump Tower on December 12, 2016. He was there in his then role as head of Qatar Investments, an internal division of QIA, to accompany the Qatari delegation that was meeting with Trump transition officials on that date," said a spokesperson for Sport Trinity, a company that Al-Rumaihi co-owns. "He did not participate in any meetings with Michael Flynn, and his involvement in the meetings on that date was limited."

The spokesperson did not elaborate on which Trump transition officials attended those meetings or the substance of the meetings.

1. This also wraps up another mystery

It is likely that there was intel about what was the subject of the meeting, and that formed the basis of Trump's allegation that Trump Tower was "bugged" during the transition.
