Russian lawyer at Trump Tower meeting charged in separate case.
The Russian lawyer who attended a 2016 meeting at Trump Tower with members of the Trump campaign was charged by federal prosecutors in New York with obstruction of justice in a money-laundering case, according to an indictment unsealed Tuesday that highlighted her ties to the Russian government.
Natalya Veselnitskaya, who gained prominence as a result of a meeting with Donald Trump Jr. and other members of the Trump campaign after he said he had been promised damaging intelligence on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, was indicted by the Manhattan US Attorney's office.
These charges were brought by the USA SDNY in a separate case, but speaks to the deep ties Veselnitskaya actually has with the Kremlin. Mueller has another attendee of the June 2016 meeting over a barrel. Team Trump had previously tried to tell us that Veselnitskaya had little or no Kremlin ties. Not so!
That June 2016 meeting, attended by Veselnitskaya, Manafort, Trump Jr and Kushner is likely to be the watershed event of Trump's undoing.
