Trump Tower Meeting - Person 7 & 8 Just Identified?

The development follows several days of shifting statements from President Donald Trump, Trump Jr., and various corners of the White House in which the administration sought to play down Veselnitskaya's meeting with the president's eldest son, Kushner, and Manafort, alleging that Veselnitskaya was not involved with the Russian government.

But it is going to be very hard, if not impossible, for Trump make that case before the battery of House and Senate investigating committees, and the Justice Department's Special Counsel Robert Mueller's broader probe into whether there was collusion between Moscow and Trump's campaign. "He told me specifically he was not working for the Russian government, and in fact laughed when I asked him that question".

Asked about Akhmetshin's participation, Manafort spokesman Jason Maloni declined comment.
