Don Jr. May Be Sweating as Russian Lawyer Offers to Talk

Uranium

Though Trump World's explanation for the meeting evolved over time - when those caught up in a scandal change their story, it's never a good sign - we eventually learned that the Republican team set up the meeting in the hopes of acquiring dirt from Russian Federation on Hillary Clinton, effectively inviting a foreign adversary to cooperate with the Trump campaign.

Trump Jr. has said he went to the meeting in hopes of receiving information that was useful to his father's presidential campaign, but Veselnitskaya offered nothing of effect.

When President Donald Trump's eldest son met with a Russian lawyer in June 2016 after being promised "information that would incriminate" Trump's election opponent Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump Jr. suggested that a US law the lawyer was lobbying against could be reconsidered if Trump became president, according to the lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya.

The brothers had invested money in Russia through William Browder, whose Hermitage Capital fund had employed Sergei Magnitsky, a Russian lawyer who died in 2009 while in prison. Among the 94 questions he sent, many with multiple parts, were some about how the meeting was arranged and her relationships with Russian President Vladimir Putin and other individuals. 'I understand our side may have messed up, but it'll take a long time to get to the bottom of it, ' he added, according to her. By her telling, this related to a US investment firm that had made contributions to the Clinton foundation but had allegedly neglected to pay USA taxes.

Trump Jr. has said the meeting was unproductive and that instead of providing dirt on Clinton, Veselnitskaya tried to lobby the Trump campaign on repealing the 2012 law.

She also said that Trump Jr. had asked her for written proof of her claim that Ziff Brothers Investments had evaded USA taxes while donating heavily to Clinton and other Democratic candidates.

The lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, said in a two-and-a-half-hour interview in Moscow that she would tell these and other things to the Senate Judiciary Committee on condition that her answers be made public, something it hasn't agreed to.

The Russian lawyer said Trump Jr.'s comments were in reference to the 2012 Magnitsky Act, a sweeping, bipartisan bill that blacklisted many prominent Russian individuals the USA says are responsible for the death of Sergei Magnitky, a Russian lawyer who exposed corruption before his contested death in a Moscow prison.

Veselnitskaya has not yet testified publicly before any of the committees. That would suggest that the Trump campaign didn't just welcome information from Russian Federation; it also requested specific materials (which, it turned out, Veselnitskaya did not have).

'That I definitely don't have!' she said.
