On June 9, 2016, Donald Trump Jr. met with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya at Trump Tower in New York City to discuss damning information she claimed she had on Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
Nothing came of the meeting as Veselnitskaya lied and was really there to push for the repeal of the Magnitsky Act, a bipartisan bill passed by the U.S. Congress and signed by President Obama in December 2012. The law intended to punish Russian officials responsible for the death of Russian tax accountant Sergei Magnitsky in a Moscow prison in 2009.
At least three of the five people at the meeting with Donald Trump Jr. were Fusion GPS officials.
Reuters previously 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.
Rinat Akhmetshin, the Russian-American lobbyist who attended the infamous Trump Tower meeting, knew Hillary Clinton and some of her campaign associates. Rinat was also a Trump hater.

Ike Kaveladze’s testimony was recently made public.
Kaveladze told investigators the 20 minute meeting was “boring.” He also said no one presented themselves as representing the Russian government, no one discussed the hacked Hillary emails and nothing took place that could be called collusion.
A Russian businessman who was present at the infamous, brief meeting at Trump Tower on June 9, 2016 has provided the most extensive publicly documented description yet about what allegedly transpired inside the room in which Russian nationals met with Donald Trump Jr. and other campaign officials.
Irakly “Ike” Kaveladze is senior vice president at Crocus Group, the real estate development firm run by Russian oligarch Aras Agalarov, whose associate and son were both reportedly involved in setting up the Trump Tower meeting.
In testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee that was recently made public, Kaveladze related that no one at the meeting presented themselves there as representing the Russian government, no one discussed hacked emails and no conversation took place that could possibly be characterized as “collusion” between Russia and the Trump campaign.
In the testimony, reviewed in full by Breitbart News, Kaveladze asserted that the meeting was an informational presentation that focused largely the Magnitsky Act, which sanctions Russian officials accused of involvement in the death of a Russian tax accountant. In his testimony, he further related how he called the meeting “boring” when describing it afterwards.
Kaveladze said that the senior Trump campaign officials present at the meeting — Paul Manafort, Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner — didn’t seem interested in any of the information discussed.
