The Russian lawyer who helped organize the 2016 Trump tower meeting,
Natalia Veselnitskaya, was charged today in a separate case for obstruction justice.
From Washington Examiner:
The case was brought against Veselnitskaya by federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York, not special counsel Robert Mueller, and it’s not related to the Trump Tower meeting. However, Mueller’s team is reportedly scrutinizing that Trump Tower meeting separately.
According to the charging document, Veselnitskaya made a “misleading declaration” to the Manhattan court in a case that was settled in May 2017.
That case was brought against Prevezon Holdings, a Russian-owned group of companies that laundered proceeds of an elaborate $230 million tax fraud scheme. The company’s owner, Denis Katzyv, settled with the U.S. government for $6 million roughly two years ago, days before the three-year case was set to go to trial.
Veselnitskaya helped to represent Prevezon in the civil case.
Natalia Veselnitskaya is the lawyer that met with Trump Jr and others on June 9, 2016 in Trump tower in Manhattan. The company met with Veselnitskaya because it was believed she had dirt on Hillary Clinton.
What are your thoughts on this folks?
