Russian Lawyer Who Met With
Trump Jr.: I Didn’t Have Clinton
Info They Wanted

NBC News, by KEIR SIMMONS and RACHEL ELBAUM

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 7/11/2017 8:28:16 AM

MOSCOW — The Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr. during the presidential campaign denied in an exclusive interview with NBC News that she had any connection to the Kremlin and insists she met with President Donald Trump’s son to press her client’s interest in the Magnitsky Act — not to hand over information about Hillary Clinton’s campaign. “I never had any damaging or sensitive information about Hillary Clinton. It was never my intention to have that,” Natalia Veselnitskaya said. When asked how Trump Jr. seemed to have the impression that she had information about the Democratic National Committee, she

FTA:

Part of the information she put together for her client included details about a company run by a former U.S. citizen. She believes this company didn’t pay taxes in either Russia or the U.S. and may also have made donations to the DNC.

These details are what may have tweaked the interest of Trump’s campaign, she said.

In the meeting, she explained how Trump Jr. asked her just one question.

“The question that I was asked was as follows: whether I had any financial records which might prove that the funds used to sponsor the DNC were coming from inappropriate sources.”


So she admits that Trump Jr.’s apparent reason for taking the meeting was his belief (based upon information from someone?) that she had negative information on the DNC/Hillary.

Why would Donald Trump Jr. think that the Russian lawyer might have information concerning collusion between Hillary Clinton and the Russians, unless the British guy who was acting as her agent to set up the meeting had not told Trump Jr., that bogus fact in order to get her that meeting with Trump Jr.?

Before this is over chances are good that we will find that the British guy is connected to others who are connected to liberal Democrat opposition research. The Magnitsky Act is a law passed by Congress and there is nothing that Trump Jr., could do about that to favor the supposed Russian position on it, either back in June 2016 or now. In fact chances are good that Trump Jr., never heard of that law or the reasons behind that law before she started talking about it in the meeting. Smells like a set-up.

The lady may well have problems with the Russian government now, as Putin has been saying all along that Russia did not collude with Americans to interfere with the election, and it appears that her British agent may have told Trump Jr., that the Russian government was colluding with Clinton before the election to get her that meeting.

Unless I missed it a Key Question which hasn´t been addressed is who approved this lady´s Visa? I understand her Visa had been previously revoked yet someone in the Bozo Administration made a exemption and approved a Special Visit Visa. Really fishy in my humble opinion!

Oppo research is not a crime. It isn´t even considered unethical anymore. (Remember the guy who moved into a home next to Sarah Palin´s home just so he could observe and report? The media weren´t too upset with him, were they?!)

I think Donald Trump Jr. was led to believe this woman had some info useful to the campaign. Once he realized she didn´t, he terminated the meeting. Apparently the woman´s suggestion that a firm tied to the DNC failed to pay either Russian or American taxes wasn´t significant enough for Team Trump to dig deeper.

Talk about a nothingburger!! This is an entire McDonald´s restuarant full of nothingburgers!!

The Left is lobbing this stuff at POTUS and family to prevent tax cuts and health care reform. If they can get rid of President Trump, then that´s even better in their eyes.

But the LSM aren´t reporting NEWS. Stalin would be proud of them.

DJTjr seems kind of naive, but he seems to have done nothing wrong. And if the lady had had the info they were looking for ... well, it´s good someone was investigating it since Comey and Lynch certainly weren´t.

WASHINGTON - House Majority Whip Steve Scalise - who was critically wounded in a shooting at a baseball practice last month - has been discharged from a Washington hospital. MedStar Washington Hospital Center says the six-term Louisiana Republican was released from the hospital on Tuesday and is beginning "intensive inpatient rehabilitation." It isn´t identifying the facility. The hospital says in a statement that Scalise (skuh-LEES´) was in good spirits and looking forward to returning to work once he completes his rehabilitation. Scalise and four other people were injured June 14 when a man opened fire on a Republican baseball practice in nearby Alexandria, Virginia. The

The big selloff is under way at Time Inc. “We are looking to sell Coastal Living, Sunset and Golf,” a Time Inc. spokeswoman confirmed on Tuesday, ending weeks of speculation. Media Ink had reported back on June 15 — in the wake of Time’ s announcement that it was chopping 300 jobs worldwide and would engage in “portfolio rationalization” — that rumors were swirling that those three titles were going to be sold. Health, a fourth title that was rumored to be heading out the door, will instead be kept, sources said. Execs believe the name has upside potential in the digital world —

Imran Awan, a House staffer at the center of a criminal investigation potentially impacting dozens of Democratic lawmakers, has been arrested on bank fraud and is prevented from leaving the country while the charges are pending. A senior House Democratic aide confirmed Awan was still employed by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) as of Tuesday morning. But David Damron, a spokesman for Wasserman Schultz, later said that Awan was fired on Tuesday. Awan pleaded not guilty on Tuesday to one count of bank fraud during his arraignment in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

According to the New York Post, as de Blasio was speaking, 63-year-old Vickie Paladino stopped her car, stepped out, and began yelling at the mayor: I want to know why you let your police officers down and our country down by going to Germany and protesting against our country.

Even the “Mean Girls” weren’t this mean. Just moments after President Trump promoted Sarah Huckabee Sanders to the role of White House press secretary, she was attacked by a swarm of woman-hating liberals. First, the propagandists at The New York Times and MSNBC questioned Sanders’ character and called her a liar, but now journalists are attacking her physical appearance.

SAN ANTONIO — The tractor-trailer was pitch-black inside, crammed with maybe 90 immigrants or more, and already hot when it left the Texas border town of Laredo for the 150-mile trip north to San Antonio. It wasn´t long before the passengers, sweating profusely in the rising oven-like heat, started crying and pleading for water. Children whimpered. People took turns breathing through a single hole in the wall. They pounded on the sides of the truck and yelled to try to get the driver´s attention. Then they began passing out.

WASHINGTON — Senior White House adviser Jared Kushner is denying that President Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia, saying in a statement ahead of congressional interviews that he has “nothing to hide.” The 11-page statement provided to The Associated Press by a representative Monday details four contacts with Russians during Trump’s campaign and transition. Kushner plans to deliver the statement during closed-door meetings with investigators on the Senate and House intelligence panels this week. Kushner is meeting with staff on the Senate committee Monday and lawmakers on the House committee Tuesday as part of both panels’ investigations into Russian meddling in the

Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg flew to Glacier National Park on Saturday to tour the melting ice fields that have become the poster child for climate change’s effects on Montana’s northern Rockies. But days before the tech tycoon’s visit, the Trump administration abruptly removed two of the park’s top climate experts from a delegation scheduled to show him around, telling a research ecologist and the park superintendent that they were no longer going to participate in the tour.

WASHINGTON — So it’s a few days before the election last November — just a few more days, surely, before Donald J. Trump would return to his golden tower to start a niche TV venture and fill a sagging Twitter feed with exclamation-pointed despair — and a book agent goes to his client with an idea: How about something on the Trump White House That Wasn’t?

President Donald Trump´s top legislative priority was dealt a potentially fatal blow Monday night as two more Republican senators announced their opposition to the party´s health care overhaul. Trump quickly called on Republicans to simply repeal Obamacare and begin work on a new health care plan, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced he would try to do so. “Regretfully, it is now apparent that the effort to repeal and immediately replace the failure of Obamacare will not be successful," McConnell said. The Kentucky Republican said he planned to hold a vote in the coming days to take up the House-passed bill to

When President Trump made his initial remarks reflecting disappointment in Attorney General Jeff Sessions it was initially unnerving. The subsequent fallout from the public criticism has united the NeverTrump crowd, Cruzbots and professionally GOPe, to defend the honor of the much beloved former Senator. The opportunity to bash Trump is simply an ancillary benefit. Conversely, the MAGA community has largely portrayed the rift as if the Presidential critique was part of a larger strategy between the President and Attorney General. If we wait long enough some mysterious master plan will eventually to be discovered. However, the subsequent POTUS tweets and comments do

Sticky-fingered socialist Bernie Sanders is apparently stealing his neighbor´s Washington Post subscription, as any good socialist might do.

"I think it´s the obligation of some executive branch officials to refuse to carry that out. I would just hope that this is not going to be a partisan issue.
