Earlier today more information leaked on Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya. It turns out the Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr. also met with an Obama ambassador.
Veselnitskaya did confirm that her meeting with Trump Jr. was about Russian adoptions in the United States. She also confirmed she was not with the Kremlin.
She was listed as a managing partner for a law firm called Kamerton Consulting. This law firm is based out of Moscow and does not even have a website.
When contacted by the Associated Press on Monday, a representative at Kamerton said that Veselnitskaya was not available for comment.
This law firm may not even be a real thing. There is no website, phone number or working email address to contact the office.
On Monday Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said they are unaware of any meetings between the Trump administration and Veselnitskaya. When asked about Veselnitskaya he said he “does not know who that is.”
“No, we don’t know who that is and obviously we can’t monitor all meetings Russian lawyers hold both in Russia and abroad.”
And now the plot thickens. Natalia Veselnitskaya is photographed here sitting with Obama's ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul. This photograph was taken during a Foreign Affairs Committee hearing. The photo was taken just 8 after they cold-contacted Donald Trump Jr. in Trump Towers.
Here is a shot from a different angle from the hearing on Russia and the Ukraine that happened on June 14, 2016.
Russian Lawyer Who Met With Trump Jr.
Also, that appears to be Emin Agalarov seated next to Natalia Veselnitskaya. Emin was mentioned in a statement made by Trump Jr. this morning. He is who helped set up the meeting between Trump Jr. and Veselnitskaya.
Additional to that, Veselnitskaya was also connected to the group Fusion GPS. This group created the Trump dossier that has since been determined to be fraudulent and discredited.
So there are several questions to answer. First, why was Veselnitskaya hanging out with Obama officials shortly after her meeting with Trump Jr.? Second, why was she in such a prime seat during a Congressional hearing? This is a very strange situation, to say the least.
