Music promoter Rob Goldstone is at the center of brewing political controversy

He was the unlikely matchmaker between the Russians and Trump's inner circle.

— -- Rob Goldstone, a British-born music promoter who has worked for a range of famous pop stars, somehow became the unlikely matchmaker between the Russians and Donald Trump’s inner circle.

Goldstone introduced the trio of Trump associates to Natalia Veselnitskaya, a Russian Goldstone described as a Russian government lawyer bringing “high level and sensitive information” that would “incriminate Hillary” Clinton.

In 2013, Trump tweeted at Aras, praising his son’s performance at the Miss Universe Pageant and indicating that Trump and Agalarov might be considering a real estate deal.

"I had a great weekend with you and your family. You have done a FANTASTIC job. TRUMP TOWER-MOSCOW is next. EMIN was WOW!"

In one of his emails to Don Jr., Goldstone indicated that he had a direct line to then-candidate Trump, writing: “I can also send this info to your father… but it is ultra sensitive so wanted to send to you first.”
