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.

Nobody is happy about the current state of our COVID-ravaged education system. With a new school year fast approaching, plans for teaching students still in flux, and political in-fighting driving more fear and confusion about whether or not to re-open campuses, teachers and parents are concerned. Meanwhile, most kids are just fine with spending less […]
Creating a fantasy world for a video or role-playing game is tough enough. In addition to all the game framework and functionality that goes into a build of any size, creators invariably sweat over the most minute details of every weapon, outfit, or other distinctive objects in their game. Even if your game is set […]
We get it. You don’t have to go to the office anymore. That’s no excuse for letting your grooming go positively feral. We’re not saying you need to be GQ cover model-ready every Monday through Friday. But at least put in some effort to keep yourself relatively trimmed, clean, and on point. Even if you […]
