Josh Schwerin, the Communications Director for Priorities USA, discovered that Rob Goldstone, the man who has been discovered setting up the meeting between Trump Jr. and the Russian lawyer, “checked in to Trump Organization” via Facebook on June 9th, 2016 (the day of the meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and the Kremlin representative). See for yourself:
He even went on to admit on Facebook that he was “preparing for a meeting” at Trump Tower on Jun 9th, 2016:
Since this story broke, Goldstone is trying to cover his tracks. He deleted the Facebook ‘check in’ to Trump Tower from his Facebook wall. This is what you now see, but Goldstone must have forgotten that the internet is written in ink:
And if that isn’t bad enough, he was also apparently in Moscow just two weeks prior, and then again immediately after the meeting with Donald Trump Jr. and the Kremlin:

Let this serve as a reminder, folks. If you’re going to use social media, please use social media responsibly. Fortunately for us, Goldstone didn’t get that memo before it was too late.
