As we learn more about the Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump, Jr., more questions are arising as to her motivation for asking for the meeting to begin with.
We previously reported that Natalia Veselnitskaya had direct ties to Fusion GPS, the firm hired by the DNC to conduct opposition research on then-candidate Trump, which also has ties to Arizona Sen. John McCain. Veselnitskaya confirmed that her meeting with Trump, Jr. was about child adoptions in the U.S. and not about damaging information on Hillary Clinton, and that she wasn’t connected to the Kremlin in any way.
Russian President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman, Dimitri Peskov also confirmed on Monday that Veselnitskaya isn’t an agent of the Kremlin, saying, “No, we don’t know who that is and obviously we can’t monitor all meetings Russian lawyers hold both in Russia and abroad.”
The law firm where Veselnitskaya is listed as a managing partner, Kramerton Consulting, is based out of Moscow and doesn’t even have a website. Further research shows that there’s also no working phone or email either, the Gateway Pundit reported.
As if there already weren’t enough questions as to who this woman is and why she cold-contacted Trump, Jr. with the promise of dirt on Hillary Clinton, only to turn around and talk about a totally innocuous subject, now we have video evidence of her sitting with an Obama administration official during a foreign affairs committee hearing…just eight days after contacting Trump, Jr. out of the blue.
Here’s a couple pictures:
Weird, right? Further, as the Gateway Pundit noted, it appears as if Veselnitskaya is sitting next to Emin Algarov, the Russian pop star who helped facilitate the meeting with Trump, Jr. via a British publicist.
A few pertinent questions that arise from the latest information are;
Why was this woman hanging out with Obama administration officials just days after contacting Trump, Jr. out of the blue?
Why was she given front-row seating, which is reserved for VIPs, during a Congressional hearing?
What the hell is going on with all of this?
