    JUNE 2015 TO FEBRUARY 2016
    Soon After Trump Announces Campaign,
    His Russian Business Ties Resurface

    About a month after Donald J. Trump formally announced his presidential campaign, he received an invitation to go to Moscow for the 60th birthday of Aras Agalarov, a Russian billionaire who co-hosted the Miss Universe pageant with him in 2013. Later that fall, the Trump Organization began to actively pursue a real estate project in Moscow.

    Goldstone thanks Trump's personal assistant and adds: “Emin will be in NYC end of January and I am sure would love to stop by.”

    Both efforts appear to involve Alexander Torshin, a key figure in Mr. Putin’s United Russia party who was instructed to make contact with the Trump campaign. Mr. Torshin met Donald Trump Jr. at a dinner during the National Rifle Association's annual convention a few days later.

    MAY19 Fake ad: “Vote Republican, vote Trump, and support the Second Amendment!"
