The Russian lawyer Don Jr. hosted at Trump Tower just admitted she's an informant
The Russian lawyer whom Donald Trump Jr. hosted during his infamous meeting at Trump Tower on June 9, 2016 -- Natalia Veselnitskaya -- has insisted she is not Kremlin spy. But according to newly-released emails from a Russian watchdog group, as well as Veselnitskaya's own admission in a forthcoming television interview, she has been an informant for the Russian government for years
"I am a lawyer, and I am an informant," she said in an interview with NBC News to be broadcast on Friday, according to the New York Times. "Since 2013, I have been actively communicating with the office of the Russian prosecutor general."
The New York Times also reported that per emails obtained by Dossier, a Russian government watchdog group established by Russian exile and Putin foe Mikhail Khodorkovsky, she "worked hand in glove with Russia's chief legal office to thwart a Justice Department civil fraud case against a well-connected Russian firm." Veselnitskaya, asked about the emails in the NBC interview, said she was hacked.
In June, Donald Trump Jr., as well as senior adviser Jared Kushner and campaign chairman Paul Manafort, hosted a group that included Veselnitskaya at Trump Tower, the headquarters of Donald Trump Sr.'s presidential campaign.No collusion whatsoever.... Don Jr. hosted a meeting with a now-admitted Russian agent in Trump Tower attended by Jared Kushner and then campaign manager Paul Manafort amongst others with the intent of receiving damaging information about Hillary Clinton as part of the Russian government's support of Donald Trump's campaign.
I'm convinced, thanks GOP.
