New revelations about the Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr., Natalia Veselnitskaya, show her pictured with former President Obama’s ambassador to Russia after meeting with Trump Jr.
For all of the treason bell ringing the left has being doing about Trump Jr.’s meeting it seems that their side has some explaining to do as well.
The Gateway Pundit has more:
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.”
Someone who may know more about her Michael McFaul. He was Obama’s ambassador to Russia and Veselnitskaya is pictured sitting with him at a Foreign Affairs Committe hearing just over a week after she met with Trump Jr.
The first photo below is McFaul testifying at the hearing and upon panning back you’ll see Veselnitskaya sitting right behind him.
TGP points out that Veselnitskaya is connected to DNC firms that created the discredited dossier on President Trump. There are now questions as to why she seems to be palling around with the Obama administration (to the point of having a very good seat at a congressional hearing where Obama’s Russian ambassador is testifying) after meeting with Trump Jr. about having dirt on Hillary.
That’s an excellent question considering the Russian government has pretty much disavowed any connection to her.
