Confirmed: RNC Chair Reince Priebus was at Trump Tower for Donald Trump Jr.s Russia meeting

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by DonViejo (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: Palmer Report

On the morning of the meeting in question, which is confirmed to have taken place at Trump Tower, an Associated Press reporter named Jonathan Lemire tweeted that he had just seen Reince Priebus walking into the building (link). This isn’t proof that Priebus was in the boardroom for the meeting, but it in confirmation that he was in Trump Tower for the meeting. There was no other reason for him to have shown up there. There was a RNC fundraiser in New York that day, but it was at a different building.

CNN is reporting tonight that Donald Trump Jr.’s attorney has coughed up some details about the eighth person at the meeting, insisting that the person was a “U.S. citizen” and was “not employed by the Russian government” while referring to the individual as having been a man (link). Junior’s attorney was attempting to make things sound more innocent by confirming that the eighth person wasn’t yet another Russian government representative. But instead, he ended up offering a description that just happens to fit Reince Priebus.

It’s important to note that during the time of this meeting, Priebus was still the Chair of the Republican National Committee, and he wasn’t working for the Donald Trump campaign in any way shape or form. So if he was in the meeting, it means the titular head of the Republican Party was officially in on the plot to conspire with the Russian government to rig the election on Donald Trump’s behalf. Look for proof soon that Priebus was not only in Trump Tower for the meeting, but physically in the meeting as well.

1. Conflicting reports that 8th person was

a representative for the Agalarov family.

http://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2017/07/17/donald-trump-jr-lawyer-eighth-person-meeting-brown-erin.cnn

Priebus was in Trump Tower earlier that day, that was confirmed. But no one is saying he was in meeting.

3. It's the Palmer Report. Take it with a grain of salt.

Or maybe a whole barrel of it. Palmer is not a particularly reliable source; he "reports" rumors, gossip and speculation. Note that he says only that Priebus was in the building, not that he was at the meeting. Maybe it will turn out that he was, but I wouldn't take Palmer's word for it. Let's see what a reputable source comes up with.

13. Just the words "Palmer," "Mensch" or "Taylor" would help

14. There is at least 12 hours of sunlight on June 9th...

Just because he went to the presumptive Republican Candidates office that day wouldn't "confirm" anything.

12. The 8th person is talking to the investigators right now

his lawyer has said he is cooperating. It is not Priebus.
