Natalia Veselnitskaya. Veselnitskaya told NBC News she has never been contacted by the Mueller team.[1]

Nataliaskaya is a Russian Lawyer employed by Denis Katsyv and Prevezon Holdings.[2] Veselnitskaya hired Glenn Simpson of FusionGPS and wittingly or unwittingly, colluded with Democrat operatives to frame Donald Trump, Jr. for alleged "Russia collusion" at the famous Trump Tower meeting in June 2016.

After a foreign citizen, Bill Browder, renounced his American citizenship to avoid paying U.S. taxes, the same foreign citizen convinced Sen. John McCain and President Obama to help him recover $350 million of money, which he claimed was his, with passage of the Magnitsky Act. Browder alleged Putin and cronies stole his money. Putin alleges that Browder is a tax cheat, which given the record is a distinct possibility, who owes the Russian federal treasury $400 million.[3] Veselnitskaya was indicted by the U.S. Justice Department in January 2019 because she represented some of the clients whom Browder alleged stole his money.[4]

Association with Russian government

As a private attorney practising law in Russia, Veselnitskaya's only relation to the Russian government is as a whistleblower with knowledge of Bill Browder's tax evasion schemes to defraud the Russia public treasury of taxes justly due.

Veselnitskaya has been portrayed in the liberal U.S. mainstream media as a "Putin-connected Kremlin lawyer."

Prevezon asset forfeiture

Veselnitskaya was allowed entrance into the United States on the approval of Loretta Lynch to settle the Prevezon asset forfeiture case.[5] Veselnitskaya overstayed her visa, and engaged in unregistered lobbying with FusionGPS against the Russia sanctions bill.

Hires BakerHostetler and FusionGPS

While in the United States, Veselnitskaya hired the law firm of BakerHostetler, who in turn hired FusionGPS to do opposition research on Bill Browder. Browder was the driving force behind the Magnitsky Act, or Russian sanctions bill.

Unregistered lobbying with FusionGPS

Veselnitskaya used the anti-Browder materials - which consisted of "dirt" on Clinton Foundation donors she received from Glenn Simpson of FusionGPS, as alleged "dirt" on Hillary Clinton in a meeting with Donald Trump, Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort. Simpson briefed Veselnitskaya both before and after the meeting.[6]

Simpson simultaneously was working for Hillary Clinton to create the illusion of Donald Trump and the Trump team Russia collusion.

Trump Tower meeting

Veselnitskaya waiting behind U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul to give Senate testimony about Bill Browder. Browder, who renounced his U.S. citizenship to avoid taxes, convinced Sen. John McCain to sponsor the Russia sanctions bill to recover his wealth. Obama signed the bill. Veselnitskaya, who doesn't understand the U.S. political system, says she was asking Donald Trump, Jr. for help because people were trying to prevent her from testifying. Veselnitskaya wanted to tell Senators that Browder scammed the Russian treasury, and Browder scammed the Congress with false allegations about Sergei Magnitsky. In the end, Veselnitskaya's testimony was scuttled.

Rinat Akhmetshin[7] Veselnitskaya,[8] and Ike Kaveladze[9] meet with Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner.[10] The material Veselnitskaya presented to the Trump team came from Glenn Simpson of FusionGPS.[11]

During the Prevezon litigation, which is how the Obama administration granted Veselnitskaya a visa to enter the country, "Veselnitskaya received memoranda summarizing [redacted] research. Certain topics - including the Ziff Brothers (a venture capital firm specializing in capital investment) - were the-subject of both (1) memoranda Veselnitskaya received from Simpson and (2) the presentation Veselnitskaya made to Trump campaign officials. Simpson acknowledged being with Veselnitskaya at a court hearing in New York on the morning of June 9, 2016, prior to her meeting at Trump Tower." Simpson further admitted to debriefing her afterward.[12]

  5. Prevezon Holdings was an international Russian real estate holdings firm where assets, stolen from international banker Bill Browder, were held. Browder appointed Sergei Magnitsky to investigate the theft in Russia. Magnitsky was arrested and died on the 356th day of a 365 day prison sentence. The Russian sanctions bill, or Magnitsky Act, was passed in part to recover Browder's stolen assets.
    Browder later testified that Glenn Simpson and FusionGPS worked for the Putin regime to discredit him and as unregistered foreign agents of the Russian government for repeal of Russian sanctions.
