WATCH: CNN obtains footage of Trump palling around with Russian figures at the center of Don Jr.’s emails
Despite Donald Trump’s repeated assurances that he knows “nothing about Russia,” new video obtained by CNN shows the president hanging out with the very people at the center of Donald Trump Jr.’s controversial email correspondence.
In the video—recorded in Las Vegas in 2013—Trump can be seen with Emin and Aras Agalarov, the Russians who allegedly asked manager Rod Goldstone to set up a meeting between a Russian lawyer and Trump Jr.
“We all think alike,” Emin Agalarov says in the video.
“These are the most powerful people in Russia, these are the richest people in Russia,” Trump later adds.
In an interview with Sean Hannity Tuesday night, Trump Jr. insisted he’d only met Emin Agalarov “once or twice,” and while the president’s eldest son does not appear in the 2013 video, his father certainly seems chummy with the Russian moguls.
