New information continues to unfold from Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower in June 2016. On Tuesday, an eighth person in the room was identified: Irakly "Ike" Kaveladze, a Russian-American who immigrated to the U.S. in 1991. 

During the meeting, Kaveladze represented the interests of the powerful Russian Agalarov family, who had helped to facilitate the secret meeting with the eldest son of President Trump to receive potentially damaging information about his opponent, Hillary Clinton. 

Kaveladze’s presence was confirmed by the Washington Post, who spoke to Scott Balber, an attorney for Emin and Aras Agalarov. He was described by Balber as "a vice president focusing on real estate and finance for the Agalarovs’ company, the Crocus Group," and was requested to attend the meeting on behalf of Aras Agalarov.  

The Russian-American was found in pictures with President Trump from 2013 when Trump met with the Agalarov family for dinner in June 2013 during the Miss USA Pageant in Las Vegas. Trump co-hosted the 2013 Miss Universe Pageant in Moscow with the Agalarov family.

Balber, who acts as the legal representative of Kaveladze, said that Kaveladze believed he would be a translator, but when he arrived found out that Natalia Veselnitskaya had brought State Department employee Anatoli Samochornov to act as her translator.

According to a report in 2000 from the New York Times, Kaveladze had been implicated in a Russian money laundering scheme involving Citibank.

"[Kaveladze] set up more than 2,000 corporations in Delaware for Russian brokers and then opened the bank accounts for them, without knowing who owned the corporations" read the report, which alleged that more than $800 million was wired from abroad to 136 clients, most of whom were Russian.

A special counsel provided by Citibank found no illegal activity on the accounts, and at the time, Kaveladze dismissed the claims as a "witch hunt." 

''What I see here is another Russian witch hunt in the United States,'' Kaveladze told the New York Times in a telephone interview.

Kaveladze has found himself in the middle of another scandal alleging impropriety that some — most vehemently President Trump — have called a "witch hunt."

The identity of the eighth person in the meeting comes after Balber revealed that he received a phone call from the office of the Special Counsel Robert Mueller over the weekend.

Mueller is in the midst of an investigation of the Trump campaign for alleged collusion with the Russian government during the 2016 presidential election and alleged obstruction of justice for the firing of former FBI Director James Comey.
