This should be interesting. Special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly asking to interview Russian pop star Emin Agalarov, who says he helped set up the 2016 Trump Tower meeting.
“Conversations are ongoing" about a potential interview, Agalarov's lawyer Scott Balber said. “Unclear how this will play out.”
Balber did not elaborate on whether Mueller is also interested in speaking to Agalarov’s father, Aras Agalarov, a billionaire with ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
A spokesman for the special counsel’s office declined to comment.
The Agalarovs were partners in the Trump Organization’s hosting of the 2013 Miss America pageant in Moscow. They also played a key role in arranging the June 2016 meeting of Donald Trump Jr.; Jared Kushner, Donald Trump's son-in-law and now senior adviser; Paul Manafort, Trump's campaign manager at the time; a Kremlin-linked lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya; and others, according to congressional testimony.
As reported here previously, EMIN, née Emin Arazovich Agalarov, released a music video earlier this year that included a bunch of Trump/Russia references. Ivanka, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Trump porn paramour Stormy Daniels, and Donald himself all made cameos. It's believed to be some sort of signal from the power ranks around Putin to Trump. 2018 is so weird.

Popping a new battery in a smoke detector or adding salt to your water softener are easy fixes. But if you run into trouble or a necessary repair in a cramped, tight place, sometimes with no obvious fix or easy access, it can be a pretty frustrating exercise.
