In a now-deleted tweet, Griffin, 56, posted a photo of herself and Goldstone, writing, “Don’t recall taking this photo with Russian intermediary Rob Goldstone, but I am in my Dynasty hat waiting for my interview with Mr. Mueller.”
Griffin initially tweeted that the photo was taken in 2010, but deleted that tweet and posted another without a date.
The photo stunt cost Griffin multiple gigs, including her job hosting CNN’s New Year’s Eve special.
The comedian, who appeared with her lawyer Lisa Bloom in a press conference, said that the Trumps’ bullying has led to her being vilified, receiving death threats and losing work.
“I don’t think I will have a career after this,” she said tearfully. “I’m going to be honest, he broke me.”
Trump Jr. admitted to meeting with a lawyer connected to the Russian government in June 2016 after she promised damaging information on his father’s presidential campaign rival, Hillary Clinton.
The meeting was allegedly arranged by Goldstone, a former British tabloid journalist whose PR firm, Oui 2 PR, says on their website they have worked with the likes of Michael Jackson, Betty White, U2 and Poison.
