Russian Lawyer Who Worked With Fusion GPS and Met With Trump Jr. Charged With Obstruction of Justice

Nowhere in this Washington Post article does it mention that Veselnitskya worked with Fusion GPS to both roll back the Magnitsky Act and entrap Trump Jr.

Because of course it doesn't. They're all part of the same lie.

A Russian lawyer whose role at a 2016 meeting at Trump Tower has come under scrutiny from special counsel Robert S. Mueller III was charged Tuesday in a separate case with obstructing justice in a money-laundering investigation.

Natalia Veselnitskaya became a central figure in Mueller's probe of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election when it was revealed that in June 2016, she met with Donald Trump Jr. and other senior Trump campaign advisers after an intermediary indicated she had dirt on Hillary Clinton.


The indictment unsealed Tuesday relates to a different legal fight involving the Russian and U.S. governments, and charges Veselnitskaya made a "misleading declaration" to the court in a civil case arising from an investigation by federal prosecutors in Manhattan into suspected Russian money laundering and tax fraud. She did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

...

In 2014, U.S. authorities were investigating whether Prevezon Holdings, a Cyprus-based real estate corporation, orchestrated a tax scheme in Russia by stealing the identities of companies and filing sham lawsuits to incur fake losses to generate tax refunds.


Veselnitskaya represented Prevezon Holdings in a civil case in which the U.S. attorney's office in Manhattan sought millions of dollars in forfeiture from the company and others. The Justice Department had alleged in a civil complaint that a Russian criminal organization ran an elaborate tax refund scheme.

The way prosecutors described it, the members of the organization stole the identities of companies that were part of the Hermitage Fund, then filed sham lawsuits against those companies. In the lawsuits, the members of the organization posed as both plaintiffs and defendants, admitting wrongdoing so they would have large money judgments which they could claim as losses and get refunds.

The fact that the same woman was involved is interesting but it doesn't affect Trump, his campaign or anyone on his staff.

It's like going to the best Italian place in town and having spaghetti with extra sauce while wearing all white and coming out spotless. Sure, it's possible, but c'mon.

I don't doubt he has been sleazy as hell - you can't live in that environment and not be. But, here's the thing - he's smart, and for all his money, he's not a state-connected political goon.

That means he actually had to fight city hall like a mofo, while maintaining an army of attorneys and accountants to keep his nose clean enough to manufacture electronics in it.

He knows how to keep everything on the up-and-up, while getting the job done.

When you're a typical politician, you can run roughshod over the law with no concern about repercussions. Consequently, you run up a litany of crimes.

This has been known, investigated, re-investigated and dismissed as a nothing burger months ago.

She was there to talk about the Magnitsky Act and as as soon as that became apparent the meeting was over.

Could she flip and lie? Sure. But since she has just been indicted for lying to investigators she will probably be looked at as just as good a witness as Michael Cohen.

The thing is, there's corruption, and then there's corruption. Hiring someone to work under the table to landscape for your business doesn't bother me. Cheating old ladies out of their life savings, does. Its a question of who your target is and what you're accomplishing.

If you cut corners to avoid government interference and taxation, okay. Technically illegal and immoral but a pretty minor infraction and F the government. If you cut corners to build a walkway over a street because you're saving money and it collapses, that was a huge foul.

Well, that was the essence of the Kelo case -- what does "public use" from the 5th Amendment mean?

Most people would say "use by the public" but the court said "for the publics benefit" and thus it was ok to eminent domain an entire neighborhood if it would revitalize the downtown of New London, CT.

Fun aside -- nothing was ever built there. Last time I was in the area, it's just a vacant water front field.

314 Well, that was the essence of the Kelo case -- what does "public use" from the 5th Amendment mean?

Most people would say "use by the public" but the court said "for the publics benefit" and thus it was ok to eminent domain an entire neighborhood if it would revitalize the downtown of New London, CT.

Fun aside -- nothing was ever built there. Last time I was in the area, it's just a vacant water front field.

Basically.

But it wasn't Pfizer's idea -- they had a campus in Groton and were planing on expanding to PA or somewhere.

The corrupt governor and a bunch of people in New London decided that they'd eminent domain a neighborhood in New London, raze it, and build out a huge mixed-use redevelopment project to try to lure Pfizer to New London.

By the time the case got the supreme court, Pfizer had already built out their new campus in, IIRC, PA.

The DEMs have demanded and gotten equal coverage for Nancy and Chuck Schemer to rebut Trumps address.
