Former Soviet-era spy Russian-American lobbyist says he was also in Trump son’s meeting

WASHINGTON (AP) — A Russian-American lobbyist says he attended a June 2016 meeting with President Donald Trump’s son, marking another shift in the account of a discussion that was billed as part of a Russian government effort to help the Republican’s White House campaign.

Rinat Akhmetshin confirmed his participation to The Associated Press on Friday. Akhmetshin has been reported to have ties to Russian intelligence agencies, a characterization he dismisses as a “smear campaign.” He told the AP he served in the Soviet military in a unit that was part of counterintelligence but was never formally trained as a spy.

"he served in the Soviet military in a unit that was part of counterintelligence "

"acronym MICE, which stands for Money, Ideology, Compromise or Coercion (depending on source), and Ego"

For Trump, its Money and Ego.

Easier said than done. Recall the effort it took to unhinge Tricky Dick Nixon.

Actually, the count of folks at that inconsequential meeting is up to "at least 8" now.

You could see how it would be easy to forget about.
