Hillary Clinton, Russian-American lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin

According to a newly released transcript of a testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Rinat Akhmetshin, a Russian-American lobbyist, knew Hillary Clinton and had contacts with her associates.

Akhmetshin also expressed his contempt for Donald Trump and his family.

Chuck Ross of The Daily Caller reported:

The Russian-American lobbyist who attended the infamous Trump Tower meeting had contacts with members of Hillary Clinton’s inner circle and knew Clinton herself, he told the Senate Judiciary Committee in 2017.

“I knew [Clinton]; I knew some people who worked on her campaign,” the lobbyist, Rinat Akhmetshin, told the Senate Judiciary Committee in closed-door testimony on Nov. 14.

Akhmetshin, a former Soviet military intelligence officer, also said his attorney, Edward Lieberman, knows Clinton well. Lieberman’s late wife, Evelyn Lieberman, was a close confidante of Clinton’s. At one point, Akhmetshin said he was not a fan of President Donald Trump’s family.

Akhmetshin attended the June 9, 2016, Trump Tower meeting with Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya.

In other Trump Tower meeting news…

Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, who also met with Donald Trump Jr. at Trump Tower New York in June of 2016 recently claimed she is also an informant for the Russian government.

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.

This was all one big set up.
