Fears being stabbed by a poison-tipped umbrella, according to a friend.

Surely the most colorful character to have emerged out of the Russia probe. Goldstone, a British music promoter and former tabloid journalist, set up the notorious meeting between Donald Trump Jr, Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, and a Russian lawyer who they believed would give them dirt on Hillary Clinton.

We’ll let his social media presence do the describing for us.

Currently: Reportedly writing a book, last reported to be in Thailand. Has agreed to meet special investigator Mueller’s team.

Believes Muslims shouldn’t sit in Congress, likened the Koran to Mein Kampf. Believes the 9/11 attacks happened because America was becoming “godless.”

Sexual harassment allegations? Check. Accusations of sexual misconduct towards minors? Check. A professed belief that the US would be better without the constitutional amendments that abolished slavery, recognized women’s and minorities’ right to work, and got rid of poll taxes? Check. Roy Moore, the first Republican in 25 years to lose a senate seat in Alabama, was the definition of an unpresentable candidate, but he got a hearty endorsement from the President himself.

Moore showed up to the polls on horseback, and basked in the camera attention—letting the world know that not only was he a bad candidate, he is also not much of an equestrian.

Currently: Mulling his historic loss of the Alabama senate seat.

Believes America should be a white “ethno-state.”

Few would have predicted that a white supremacist like Richard Spencer would become a national figure, just a year after America’s first black president left office. But thanks in part to Trump’s public pooh-poohing of fears about resurgent racism, Spencer has gained prominence while white supremacists marched in Charlottesville and Tennessee—leaving the country wondering if this is just the beginning.

The president of think tank National Policy Institute is also remembered for a different kind of ideological violence: being punched on camera by a protester in a video that has been watched 3.4 million times.

Currently: Continuing his tour of speaking engagements.
