A new report about Donald Trump Jr,’s meeting with Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya reveals she brought with her a plastic folder with printed out documents alleging a flow of illicit funds to the Democrats.
In his first public interview about the meeting, Akhmetshin said he accompanied Veselnitskaya to Trump Tower where they met an interpreter. He said he had learned about the meeting only that day when Veselnitskaya asked him to attend. He said he showed up in jeans and a T-shirt.
Veselnitskaya brought with her a plastic folder with printed-out documents that detailed what she believed was the flow of illicit funds to the Democrats, Akhmetshin said. Veselnitskaya presented the contents of the documents to the Trump associates and suggested that making the information public could help the campaign, he said.
“This could be a good issue to expose how the DNC is accepting bad money,” Akhmetshin recalled her saying.
Trump Jr. asked the attorney if she had sufficient evidence to back up her claims, including whether she could demonstrate the flow of the money. But Veselnitskaya said the Trump campaign would need to research it more. After that, Trump Jr. lost interest, according to Akhmetshin.
“They couldn’t wait for the meeting to end,” he said.
Akhmetshin also said he does not know if Veselnitskaya’s documents were provided by the Russian government. He said he thinks she left the materials with the Trump associates. It was unclear if she handed the documents to anyone in the room or simply left them behind, according to the AP report.
As TGP previously reported, the liberal media jumped on the story noting that Akhmetshin a Russian operative and was helping Trump get elected.
But Rinat Akhmetshin was working with Fusion GPS, an organization linked to the Democrat party, and has worked the shadowy corners of the Washington lobbying scene for nearly 20 years.
Glenn Simpson, the founder of Fusion GPS, the group behind the discredited Trump Dossier, cancelled his testimony before Congress next week.
There are also many questions swirling around as to why Veselnitskaya was allowed into the United States in June of 2016 after she was denied a visa. We do know that Veselnitskaya entered the U.S. on immigration parole earlier in the year which is not commonly granted. So far, all roads lead back to the Democrats as a possible set-up.
