NBC News reported this morning that former Soviet intelligence officer and unregistered lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin was present at the meeting where Trump Jr. solicited damaging information on Hillary Clinton.
In what probably shouldn't come as a surprise, Rinat Akhmetshin is now under investigation according to Politico, in part because he's acting as an unregistered foreign agent.
U.S. officials became aware of Akhmetshin’s potential involvement in the meeting earlier this week. Three officials expressed concern about his role to POLITICO and said they were probing it further as part of their larger investigation into ties between Trump associates and the Kremlin. [...]
One U.S. official referred to Akhmetshin as a known “IO,” or intelligence operative.
I expect to see Akhmetshin retroactively register as a foreign agent by Monday. It worked for Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn.
It's raining Russia-related news today.
