Rob Goldstone, the publicist who helped to set up the meeting at Trump Tower between members of President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and a Russian attorney, contradicted Jared Kushner’s version of events in a recent interview on MSNBC.
Goldstone, a British music publicist, told “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough about the meeting, which he attended along with Donald Trump Jr., Kushner, and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
“My recollection is we all left at the same time,” Goldstone said. “Now, whether he got up and dashed out and we all lagged behind him a minute or two, I don’t recall — but he stayed a majority of the meeting.”
Kushner has said that he left the meeting after only a few minutes because he got bored, but Goldstone said that “the only person who made a comment before Don Jr. wrapped up the meeting was Jared Kushner who appeared to them to be very generic, very general information about this supposed illegal funding to the Democrats.
"Jared Kushner, who looked increasingly agitated to me, said to her, ‘I have no idea what you’re talking about, could you possibly refocus?'”
“I remember that specifically because instead of refocussing, the attorney — maybe it’s the translation issue — began from the same part that had seemingly bored him to the point of, like, what we now know texting his assistant to say, ‘Get me out of this meeting,'” Goldstone said.
