Emails show follow up to June, 2016 meetingEmails sent by Rob Goldstone raise new questions about the topics that were discussed at a controversial June meeting in Trump Tower attended by senior Trump campaign officials and a Russian lawyer, CNN reported Thursday.

Goldstone, the British publicist who set up the meeting, sent multiple emails in the days that followed to a Russian participant in the meeting and Trump aide Dan Scavino.

In one email Goldstone encouraged Scavino, now the White House's social media director, to get candidate Trump to join the Russian social network VK, according to CNN. He noted that Donald Trump Jr. and Paul Manafort, who was then Trump's campaign chairman, were on board with the idea.

CNN reported that it could not find evidence that the page was set up.

In another email, Goldstone forwarded a story about Russia's hacking of DNC emails. He described the news as "eerily weird" given what was discussed at the Trump Tower meeting less than a week earlier.
