Russian behind Trump Tower meeting calls accusations 'ridiculous'


In a new interview, Russian pop star Emin Agalarov admits to setting up the 2016 Trump Tower meeting, but says accusations of meddling are “ridiculous”. Agalarov also admitted that the Trump campaign approached Russians for help with the Russian-American vote; former FBI Assistant Director Frank Figliuzzi notes that the Trump campaign did not appear to set up similar meetings for other regions, asking: “Why the focus on Russian-Americans?”
