Aug 2, 2016 Manafort & Gates Meet Kilmnik at 666

Post Date: 08/02/2016

On Aug 2, 2016 Manafort, the campaign chair for Trump, left Trump Tower in the heat of a Presidential election to meet with a known Russian political operative, Konstantin Kilimnik. Kilimnik flew in from Russia just for this meeting. Trump’s campaign deputy Rick Gates also attended the meeting. They met at 666 Fifth Ave which was owned by Jared Kushner and in deep financial trouble at the time. They met in the Grand Havana Room. Manafort shared polling data just 5 days after Trump says, “Russia if you’re listening…”. Why would Trump’s campaign share campaign data with Russian spies? Another subject discussed at this meeting was a proposed resolution to the conflict over Ukraine. Finally, in an effort to hide the meeting, they left the building at different times and to different exits. This is the meeting Manafort lied to Mueller about.

Also around this time Trump changed the RNC platform to a pro russian platform. Trump complimented Putin several times. During this time, Trump was echoing Putin talking points. See timeline for other events. Remember, the usual number of interactions with Russia for a campaign is ZERO!

Verified: In addition to the MSM reporting the details, we know because of  Feb 4, 2019 court records. The judge also alluded to another interaction at the Havana Room gathering where a handoff by Manafort of internal polling data from Trump’s presidential campaign to his Russian associate. The prosecutor even said, “this goes to the very heart of the Mueller investigation.” This meeting and connections were actually reported by the MSM at the time. Those not looking did not see. The rest of us are not surprised at all.
