BREAKING: One call was to Howard Lorber.

"Trump’s ties with Lorber run deep...[and] have attracted the interest of congressional investigators. In the 90s, when Trump started exploring real estate options in Russia, Lorber accompanied him on a tour of Moscow."

This feels fishy.
2/ OTOH, if Lorber was previously a prospective business partner in Moscow, and Jr. had just gotten a communication originating with Trump's then-active partner in a Trump Tower Moscow, Aras Agalarov...maybe this call to Lorber actually makes precisely the normal amount of sense?
3/ By "the normal amount of sense," I mean something that must be *thoroughly* investigated by Mueller, as it may be indicative of illicit behavior. I would not want to be Howard Lorber right now, as any contacts he's ever had with Russia are going to be or have been scrutinized.
4/ I wouldn't be at all surprised to learn that the Trumps used conference calls with third parties to "launder" phone records, meaning Don may have called Lorber, who may have then brought Trump in on the call. This is *not* going to be the end of this story. Not by a long shot.
5/ Or Trump had Lorber's phone. Who knows. But *something* here does not sound right at all. Don had *just* learned the Kremlin was going to give his dad the documents he'd wanted for a *long* time.
6/ WASHINGTON POST: Lorber is one of Trump's *best friends*. He's not one of Trump Jr.'s best friends. We will learn that this Lorber call involved Trump somehow. washingtonpost.com/news/josh-rogi…
