Natalia Veselnitskaya posted an anti-Trump article on her Facebook page 4 days before her meeting with Donald Trump Jr.
Veselnitskaya’s facebook page shows she was in New York City on the 10th and in Washington DC on June 14, 2016.
Veselnitskaya told NBC News on Monday she was not with the Kremlin as was reported by The New York Times.
She confirmed her meeting with Donald Trump Jr. was about Russian adoptions in the US.
The law firm where Veselnitskaya is listed as managing partner, Kamerton Consulting, is based in a Moscow suburb and does not even have a website.
A staff member at Kamerton told The Associated Press Veselnitskaya was unavailable for comment on Monday.
Her office in Moscow may be a shell. There is no working phone, email or website.
Russian President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Monday that the Kremlin is unaware of a meeting between Trump’s senior staff and Veselnitskaya and “does not know who that is.”
“No, we don’t know who that is and obviously we can’t monitor all meetings Russian lawyers hold both in Russia and abroad.”
Natalia Veselnitskaya was sitting with Obama’s Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul during a Foreign Affairs Committee hearing, 8 days after cold-contacting Trump Jr. in Trump Tower.
