Russian lawyer who met Donald Trump's son worked for intelligence agency


The Magnitsky Act "sanctions Russian torturers and killers, from coming into America, and using the American banking system", said Browder.

According to Republican Senator Lindsey Graham and testimony given by a witness to the Senate Judiciary Committee, the Russian government didn't isolate their election meddling efforts around taking down Hillary Clinton.

Browder had been Russia's largest portfolio investor until he fled the country in 2005, accused of financial crimes. Its founder Glenn Simpson, a former Wall Street Journal reporter, was one of the people in Washington who has helped Veselnitskaya lobby to repeal the Magnitsky Act-by working for an American law firm hired to defend Prevezon. After Congress passed the sanctions on individuals and entities responsible for Magnitsky's death, the Kremlin retaliated by blocking the adoption of Russian children in the U.S. The hearing was set up to examine the firm's separate work on a legal case involving the Magnitsky Act, a law to punish Russian human rights violators.

"Fusion GPS has complied with the law", the statement said.

Browder called the June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower with Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin, and publicist Rob Goldstone a mission that Russian intelligence knew about in advance "with 100 percent certainty. there would have been weeks spent studying how to best achieve the results in that meeting".

For those of you who only get your information from Fox and other right-wing media outlets and believe there's nothing wrong with members of President Donald Trump's inner circle and campaign staff talking to Russians about adopting cute little innocent Russian babies, here's what's wrong with it.


"I have no direct evidence, but I know how Russian security services behave, and this was a big ask, to repeal a major legislation", Browder told the committee. "She has said it - it's been said by people who attended that meeting", Browder noted.

The president's son, who enthusiastically accepted the invitation to meet with Veselnitskaya for that goal, has said she provided no useful information and the discussion focused instead on Russia's ban on U.S. adoptions of Russian children. "They wouldn't have gone in and said please, can you repeal this for us, without having something to offer in return". "It affects Putin's money", Browder said.

The Justice Department (DOJ) alleged Prevezon Holdings, a company run by Russian businessman Denis Katsyv, benefited from the felonious scheme and targeted them in a civil asset forfeiture case. Fusion GPS is the shadowy research firm that was commissioned by interests aligned with the Democratic party to produce (possibly with the help of the FBI) the famed "dossier" containing some outlandish and disproven allegations on Trump's Russian Federation connections.

The collusion between Trump Jr. and Veselnitskaya was denied by both White House and the Kremlin with the latter saying that Veselnitskaya does not represent the Russian government.

Fusion GPS was apparently representing these same Putin-connected interests when they were involved in arranging the controversial meeting Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, and Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort had with Rinat Akhmetshin, a former Russian intelligence officer and naturalized American citizen, and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya a year ago. In fact, she has denied having anything to do with the Kremlin, but the fact that she once represented interests of the F.S.B.in court may raise numerous eyebrows, especially among USA politicians.
