“So I was pretty sure in which somebody might follow up on in which — my point of contact can be always Emin — might follow up as well as see whether in which meeting [between Trump as well as Putin] could finally happen,” Goldstone testified.
He then was asked whether — various other than the emails to Graff in July 2015, or the circumstances leading up to the June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower — he had “sought to arrange meetings between Russian government officials as well as individuals associated with the Trump Organization or Trump campaign.”
