We need to stay focused on the facts, despite Trump's aversion to them.
The president of the Center for the National Interest, which hosted the speech, told The Times he introduced Trump to Kislyak at the event. Kislyak attended, and was photographed finding his seat.
Mr. Trump was at the reception for about five minutes and then went immediately to the podium. Jeff Sessions, now the USA attorney general, also spoke with Kislyak at the convention. "And if we don't do that, I don't think we'll ever know that story", McFaul said at George Washington University last week.

Sessions reversed course last week and acknowledged that he had spoken with Kislyak once at the Republican National Convention last July and again at a meeting in his Senate office in September in the presence of his Senate staff.
It's kind of insane how no one in the Trump camp, including Sessions, former DHS Michael Flynn, adviser Jared Kushner, and now Gordon, can remember meeting Kislyak until months after the fact. It is the thread that runs throughout this mess, whether it's Jeff Sessions' undisclosed meetings with the Russian ambassador; former campaign foreign-policy adviser Carter Page's connections to that country; Trump's own call that Russia hack rival then-rival Hillary Clinton, or the contradictory statements about the Trump empire's dealings with that country.
