The plot continues to thicken with the meeting between Donald Trump, Jr. and Natalia Veselnitskaya, and it’s looking worse and worse for the Obama administration.
Yesterday we reported that the Justice Department granted the Russian attorney a visa “parole” that allowed her to stay in the country under extremely special circumstances. Generally speaking, such waivers are only given to people on humanitarian grounds or when their presence in the country will be a direct benefit to America.
Neither was the case for Veselnitskaya, who was here representing a Russian firm lobbying against an Obama-era policy. So questions remain as to why the same woman now under scrutiny for meeting with Trump, Jr. just magically had a special waiver granted right before the now infamous meeting.
We also reported that Wikileaks uncovered an email in which the DNC was looking to use a music video by Emin Algarov, whose publicist reached out to Trump, Jr. to setup the meeting, that featured President Trump, against then-candidate Trump. The email suggests that Hillary and the DNC were going to create a narrative that President Trump was in bed with the Russians.
Low and behold, now we’re hearing the narrative that President Trump is in bed with the Russians, and it’s looking like this meeting was a set up all along.
A new report from Jack Posobiec reveals that after granting the special waiver to Veselnitskaya, then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch ordered Paul Manafort’s phone to be tapped…during the meeting she had with Trump, Jr., where Manafort was present.
Scoop: Manaforts phone was illegally bugged during meeting with Russian Lawyer, confirmed by multiple sources. Lynch ordered it.

Accusations have arisen that the meeting was part of a wider setup to achieve a FISA warrant to wiretap phones of the Trump campaign during 2016. President Trump himself has accused the FBI under Loretta Lynch of wiretapping his campaign.
Now, a former Trump campaign official reports that Paul Manafort’s phone was subject to FISA wiretap during the infamous meeting.
If true, this FISA warrant would have been carried out under Loretta Lynch, Attorney General to Barack Obama. Former FBI Director James Comey has testified under oath to instances of collusion between AG Lynch and the Clinton campaign during 2016, as well as obstruction of justice in the Clinton investigation.
As Posobiec goes on to note, this would have been illegal…highly illegal. It was widely reported that the FISA Court denied the request for a warrant in June of last year, when the meeting took place.
So if this ends up being true, then Lynch illegally wiretapped a civilian’s phone, strictly for political purposes.
