In an exclusive interview with NBC News, Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, who met with Donald Trump Jr. to discuss information on Hillary Clinton flat-out denied 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.
Her statement 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 replied with:
“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.”

In addition, the lawyer said that Trump Jr. asked her one distinct question:
Whether or not she had any financial records which might prove that the funds used to sponsor the D.N.C. were coming from inappropriate sources.”
Veselnitskaya had no records and said “it was never my intention to collect any financial records to that end.”
Now, here’s some information on this Russian Lawyer:
Veselnitskaya has a history of advocating for the Russian government. Her clients include “state-owned businesses and a senior government official’s son,” reports the New York Times.
She also was married to a former deputy transportation minister in the Moscow region.
To top it off–she has a refrigerator magnet of Russian President Putin (see image here) and we’re suppose to believe she has no ties to the Kremlin? Give me a break. It’s only a matter of time until Trump and his corrupted family are held accountable for all of their treasonous acts.
