Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, who met with Donald Trump Jr. at Trump Tower New York in June of 2016 is now claiming she is also an informant for the Russian government.
Via The New York Times:
The Russian lawyer who met with Trump campaign officialsin Trump Tower in June 2016 on the premise that she would deliver damaging information about Hillary Clinton has long insisted she is a private attorney, not a Kremlin operative trying to meddle in the presidential election.
But newly released emails show that in at least one instance two years earlier, the lawyer, Natalia V. Veselnitskaya, worked hand in glove with Russia’s chief legal office to thwart a Justice Department civil fraud case against a well-connected Russian firm.
Ms. Veselnitskaya also appears to have recanted her earlier denials of Russian government ties. During an interview to be broadcast Friday by NBC News, she acknowledged that she was not merely a private lawyer but a source of information for a top Kremlin official, Yuri Y. Chaika, the prosecutor general.
“I am a lawyer, and I am an informant,” she said. “Since 2013, I have been actively communicating with the office of the Russian prosecutor general.”
Veselnitskaya previously said in a November testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee she had no connection to the Kremlin.
Nothing about this Russian lawyer adds up; it’s a Deep State set up.
According to Fox News, Veselnitskaya met with Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS mere hours before she and three Russians sauntered over to Trump Tower to meet with Don Jr. and few others from Trump’s campaign. She then met with Simpson AGAIN after she left Trump Tower.
It gets worse…
Reuters reported that the memo Veselnitskaya presented to Don Jr at Trump Tower was PREPARED BY FUSION GPS….yes the same firm that Hillary’s camp paid millions of dollars to for the garbage Russia dossier.
Veselnitskaya was also given special entry to the US by the Obama administration via The Hill:
The Homeland Security Department confirmed Friday that Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya was granted special entry to the United States on multiple occasions in 2015 and 2016 at the request of the Justice Department.
It also said Veselnitskaya eventually won a nonimmigrant work visa around the time she met President Trump’s eldest son in New York last summer.
Homeland told The Hill that Veselnitskaya was allowed to enter the United States on multiple occasions between September 2015 and February 2016 under a “Significant Public Benefit Parole” document requested by the Justice Department so she could participate in a court case for a client.
The request was done “in concurrence” with the U.S. attorney’s office in New York City, which was enforcing a civil asset forfeiture case against Prevezon Holdings, a company owned by Russian businessman Denis Katsyv, whom Veselnitskaya represented as a private attorney in their home country.
Mueller still hasn’t contacted Veselnitskaya, so there’s that.
