Russia Probe Investigators Are Now Targeting Trump’s Secretary

By Koh Mochizuki

Donald Trump's former secretary Rhona Graff is now the latest candidate congressional investigators are seeking in the Russia probe.

Graff, who now serves as the vice president for the Trump Organization, was mentioned in the email exchanges between Donald Trump Jr. and music publicist Rob Goldstone in facilitating a meeting with the Russian lawyer who allegedly had dirt on Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election.

Trump Jr. famously released the emails on Twitter on June 11 in which Goldstone suggested enlisting the help of Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Kremlin attorney who "offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary."

Goldstone wrote to Jr. in the released emails, “I can also send this info to your father via Rhona, but it is ultra sensitive so wanted to send to you first.” 

He also referred to the classified dirt on Clinton as "obviously very high level and sensitive" and "part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump."

Jr. responded, "If it's what you say...I love it."

Whether Goldstone reached out to Graff or not isn't clear. Graff's name was only mentioned and not included in the email threads. 

She hasn't been accused of any violations, but because of her longtime association as Trump's secretary, investigators are hoping to find out if Trump knew about Russia's involvement with the campaign.
