The general consensus is that Donald Trump Jr. acted unwisely in meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya. He did it in person and he left an email trail. Having said that, there is a whole lot more to this story and you best wait for all the shoes to drop.
And they are dropping. Let’s take things piece at a time.
An interview with Veselnitskaya on NBC this morning went like this:
MOSCOW — The Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr. during the presidential campaign denied in an exclusive interview with NBC News that she had any connection to the Kremlin and insisted she met with President Donald Trump’s son in 2016 to discuss sanctions between Russia and the U.S., not to hand over information about Hillary Clinton’s campaign.“I never had any damaging or sensitive information about Hillary Clinton. It was never my intention to have that,” Natalia Veselnitskaya said.
Her account appeared to contradict that of Trump Jr., who said on Sunday that the premise of the meeting was to discuss damaging information on Clinton that the lawyer was offering. When asked how Trump Jr. seemed to have the impression that she had information about the Democratic National Committee, she responded:
“It is quite possible that maybe they were longing for such an information. They wanted it so badly that they could only hear the thought that they wanted.”
Actually, it did not contradict Trump Jr. whatsoever. Junior released the email chain and here it is
The email clearly suggests that Hillary Clinton was colluding with the Russians. There is a problem- there is no such thing as a “crown prosecutor” but Veselnitskaya once worked as a Russian prosecutor. Veselnitskaya had been denied a visa to enter the US but someone in the obama administration granted her a parole letter so she could defend a company called Prevezon Holdings. Somewhere between January and June 9, 2016, Veselnitskaya veered off her course of defending Prevezon Holdings. When she met with Junior she turned the meeting into a discussion of repealing the Magnitsky Act.
During the meeting Veselnitskaya raised the issue of restoring U.S. adoptions inside Russia if the United States would repeal the Magnitsky Act, a law passed in 2012 punishing Moscow for human rights violations in connection with the death of a lawyer who had discovered a massive money laundering scheme inside the country.
That’s really interesting because Putin hates the Magnitsky Act, which was passed to punish Moscow for the death of Sergei Magnitsky.
Vladimir Putin has long reviled the Magnitsky Act and fought to have it repealed. And according to letter from Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Charles Grassley, the Kremlin’s main fight against the law was led by Veselnitskaya’s client, Katsyv.
That would be Denis Katsyv, the owner of Prevezon Holdings, who is being sued by the US for money laundering:
Most notably, Veselnitskaya represented Denis Katsyv, the son of a senior government official and owner of Russian real estate firm Prevezon, which was sued in 2013 by then-Manhattan US Attorney Preet Bharara on charges of laundering money in a massive Russian government tax scam.
As a counter punch, Putin suspends the adoption of Russian babies by US citizens.
Enter Rob Goldstone, the author of the email to Junior.
It was at a beauty pageant in Moscow in 2013 that the Trump’s met the Agalarov family. Rob Goldstone is the publicist for billionaire Aras Agalarov’s son Emin. Goldstone was also the broker for the meeting between Junior and Veselnitskaya. Then Agalarov’s are said to have close ties to Vladimir Putin and Goldstone has strong ties to the Agalarov’s.
So what’s going on?
Congress passes the Magnitsky Act as a response to the “Magnitsky Affair”:
The scam is also known as the Magnitsky affair, named after Sergei Magnitsky, a Russian lawyer for American investment fund manager Bill Browder who is widely believed to have been tortured and killed in a Russian prison after exposing the $230 million fraud.After Magnitsky’s death, Browder sought justice for his former attorney in the US and Europe and, in 2012, Congress passed the Magnitsky Act, which froze the assets of and denied visas to 44 Russian businessmen believed to have been involved in Magnitsky’s death.
Putin fights to have it repealed and responds by suspending the adoption of Russian babies. Denis Katsyv is the main principal in that fight.
US Attorney Preet Bharara sues Katsyv and Prevezon.
Natalia Veselnitskaya is dispatched allegedly to defend Prevezon and Katsyv.
She meets with Junior about the repeal of the Magnitsky Act. Remember this from above?
“During the meeting Veselnitskaya raised the issue of restoring U.S. adoptions inside Russia if the United States would repeal the Magnitsky Act”
By what authority would she be able to offer the deal? Something like that would have to come from very high up despite Veselnitskaya denying any connection to the Kremlin.
Now for the fun part.
It is asserted that Prevezon hired one Fusion GPS:
