Two Russian-American's, lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin and Kaveladze, met in June 2017 over coffee in Moscow where they discussed a meeting they had participated in a year before: a gathering at Trump Tower with President Donald Trump’s son, his son-in-law and his then-campaign chairman. The Moscow meeting, which has not been previously disclosed, is now under scrutiny by investigators who want to know why the two men met in the first place and whether there was some effort to get their stories straight about the Trump Tower meeting just weeks before it would become public, The Associated Press has learned.

In this Nov. 15, 2017, photo, President Donald Trump speaks in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House in Washington. Trump is not usually one to sit out a political feeding frenzy. But now he’s selectively aiming his Twitter guns at those under scrutiny for sexual misconduct. He’s been largely silent about Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore but hasn’t hesitated to skewer Democratic Sen. Al Franken. It’s a tricky matter for Trump: During the campaign, more than a dozen women stepped up to accuse him of sexual misconduct, and he was seen bragging in an old video about groping and kissing women.
