NEW: Federal investigators are looking at a series of international bank transactions following the planners and participants of the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting #MoneyTrail…
The investigators are focused on two bursts of financial transactions — one shortly after the meeting and the other after the 2016 election — involving the family of Aras Agalarov, a Russian billionaire real estate developer with ties to both Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump
11 days after the Trump Tower meeting — the same day Paul Manafort became Trump’s campaign chief — a company controlled by Agalarov wired more than $19.5 million to his own account at a bank in New York.
Shortly after Trump’s election, an account in New Jersey controlled by Agalarov’s son, pop singer Emin Agalarov, and two of his friends began receiving $1.2 million from the Agalarov family bank in Russia.

The account had been virtually dormant since the summer of 2015.
That account then sent money to a company run by Irakly “Ike” Kaveladze, who was the Agalarovs’ representative at the meeting. That company then sent money to a company run by Rob Goldstone, who is Emin Agalarov’s publicist and first proposed the Trump Tower meeting.
At some point before July 24, 2017, about two weeks after @nytimes first reported on the meeting, Goldstone left for Bangkok. While there, he made a series of 37 ATM withdrawals totaling about $8,400.
Prosecutors have not charged the Agalarovs, Kaveladze, or Goldstone with any wrongdoing and representatives for all of them have characterized suspicions over these transactions as unfounded. #MoneyTrail…
