The Russian lawyer who met Donald Trump Jr to “help” his father’s Presidential campaign by providing compromising information about his Political rival Hillary Clinton entered the United States under false pretense, we can confidently report.
Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who it is believed is directly linked to the Kremlin and Putin’s inner circle omitted important information from US immigration officials while applying to enter the United States. She did not for example truthfully tell the immigration officials and immigration judge that she was entering the United States to work as a lobbyist, to mingle with and influence U.S politicians and neither did she reveal that she was planning to “work” on the US Presidential elections by providing compromising information about Hillary Clinton to the Trump campaign so as to derail Hillary Clinton’s team. Had she given that vital information, it is highly unlikely she’d have been let into the United States.
Instead, Ms Natalia Veselnitskaya implied and informed officials that she was entering the United States to work for her client, a Russian businessman Denis Katsyv on an Asset forfeiture case. Her application indicated she was applying to enter the U.S to further and pursue justice for her client, which is a worthy excuse.
The Moscow lawyer had been turned down for a visa to enter the U.S. lawfully but then was granted special immigration parole by then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch for the limited purpose of helping a company owned by Russian businessman Denis Katsyv, her client, defend itself against a Justice Department asset forfeiture case in federal court in New York City.
According to a news report by The Hill, during a court hearing in early January 2016, as Veselnitskaya’s permission to stay in the country was about to expire, federal prosecutors described how rare the grant of parole immigration was as Veselnitskaya pleaded for more time to remain in the United States.
“In October the government bypassed the normal visa process and gave a type of extraordinary permission to enter the country called immigration parole,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Paul Monteleoni explained to the judge during a hearing on Jan. 6, 2016.
“That’s a discretionary act that the statute allows the attorney general to do in extraordinary circumstances. In this case, we did that so that Mr. Katsyv could testify. And we made the further accommodation of allowing his Russian lawyer into the country to assist,” he added.
The prosecutor said the Justice Department was willing to allow the Russian lawyer to enter the United States again as the trial in the case approached so she could help prepare and attend the proceedings.
Once in the U.S, the lawyer then met with Trump Jr, with Trump’s campaign manager and with Jared kushner. She met with other U.S politicians too.
And Veselnitskaya also attended a dinner with the chairman of the House subcommittee overseeing Russia policy, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) and roughly 20 other guests at a dinner club frequented by Republicans.
She engaged in a pro-Russia lobbying campaign and attended an event at the Newseum in Washington, D.C., where Russian supporters showed a movie that challenged the underpinnings of the U.S. human rights law known as the Magnitsky Act, which Russian President Vladimir Putin has reviled and tried to reverse. While she claims not to be working for the Russian State, then the question is, why was she doing Russian foreign policy work about the Magnitsky Act? Is she a lawyer? A human rights activist or a SPY?
