In one email dated June 14, 2016, Goldstone forwarded a CNN story on Russia's hacking of DNC emails to his client, Russian pop star Emin Agalarov, and Ike Kaveladze, a Russian who attended the meeting along with Trump Jr., Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and Manafort, describing the news as "eerily weird" given what they had discussed at Trump Tower five days earlier.

It's a slutty drum. The only thing people can't seem to bang it against is a popular vote win, and I'm probably forgetting examples of that.

Proprietary rights to the popular vote drum shift depending on the opinion poll cited.

Wait, these are the highly incriminating tweets of biased FBI agents. The Secretary of Energy has said worse things about Trump and they booed Eric Holder.

In addition to Trump, they rag on Martin O'Malley, Richard Clarke, Edward Snowden, Ted Cruz, Black Lives Matter protests, and Scott Baio.

I think I want to have a beer with them.

If Trump wanted to piss off the security establishment, he’d pardon Snowden.

Someone should get that to Fox News.

Same here. But "Trump is a fucking idiot" is implicit in the nature of reality.

Thank god this group is so dumb. I love how they’re shocked that the GSA would hand emails over to law enforcement. Who expects privacy on a .gov email address?

Every time you sign into a government computer after a reboot, you have to click ok on a warning message that there is no expectation of privacy when using a government computer.

Why do I have a feeling that the conversations in the White House on the afternoon of January 20 were something like this?

Jared: "Ah, finally, I have a government computer with all those government security features! Now I can communicate without worrying that it will be compromised!"

*starts typing*
Dear Sergei,

Is it OK if I call you that? Or should I still call you "Mr. Ambassador"? Just checking. Anyway, like you requested, we've instructed the embassy staffers in Kiev, Moscow, Riga, and Vilnius to give the White House copies of the files you requested, and we'll be passing them along soon. I just got this sweet government laptop, amazing security features, installed by the NSA guys, so nobody will be able to eavesdrop. Hey, also, I noticed that the Russian government hasn't yet approved the St. Petersburg real estate deal that we spoke about. My family was counting on that, and it's half the reason I took this job. So, anyway, I really hope you can get the people in Moscow to approve that real estate deal we talked about. And I'll send you those embassy files soon.

Yours (in every sense of the word),

Jared
