Natalia Veselnitskaya is best known in America as one of the Russians who met with Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort in Trump Tower in June 2016. She has been the go-to Russian for Team Clinton whenever it needed one, so it is hardly surprising that right now when Donna Brazile is all but saying that Hillary Clinton killed Seth Rich, that Veselnitskaya should appear of the woodwork again.
Dems hate Donald Junior amirite? So now it’s the Donald Junior and Natalia Veselnitskaya and Donna Brazile vast Right-wing Russians conspiracy hour. Worked before.
Day ten thousand and still nobody in the legacy media cares that Natalia Veselnitskaya went from being the Russian working with Fusion GPS to kill Magnitsky for Vladimir Putin to being the Russian working with Fusion GPS to kill the Trump candidacy (and now Presidency) for Hillary.
Never heard of Natalia? The Hillary Clinton Russian super-booster is quite a character. Let’s quickly recap.
Veselnitskaya has rocketed to prominence since graduating from the Moscow State Legal Academy. Her big break came as lawyer for Pyotr Katsyv, vice-president of state-owned Russian Railways, and former regional minister of transportation. Veselnitskaya successfully sued anti-corruption organisation Spravedlivost for defamation. Spravedlivost accused her and Katsyv of seizing land using government connections.
Veselnitskaya and her firm, Kamerton Consulting, represented the FSB, the re-constituted KGB, from 2005 to 2013.
In 2009 another Moscow lawyer, Sergei Magnitsky, uncovered a $230 million criminal scheme which implicated Kremlin figures. Magnitsky was incarcerated for his trouble, and then beaten to death in jail.
The money stolen from Russia in the scheme that Magnitsky uncovered was laundered in Cypress, and invested in New York property. This was uncovered by Bill Browder, who went to the authorities, and then successfully lobbied Congress to pass a package of sanctions against the Russian Oligarchs, the Magnitsky Act.
At this time Veselnitskaya came to the United States to defend Denis Katsyv, son of Pyotr Katsyv. Denis is a Russian businessman based in Moscow and owner of Prevezon Holdings Limited. His case was settled this year after paying a $5.9 Million Dollar fine to the Justice Department.
Fusion GPS worked on the Katsyv lawsuit with Veselnitskaya for more than two years. During this time Fusion GPS was actively involved in smearing Bill Browder the whistle-blower and Sergei Magnitsky, the Russian who was beaten to death. In effect, they were working directly for the Kremlin, via Veselnitskaya. To this day Fusion GPS has never been held accountable for lobbying against the Magnitsky Act on behalf of a hostile foreign power
The firm’s work on the Trump dossier for Hillary Clinton involved many of the same Russians. In the intervening period between when Fusion GPS was being paid by Moscow and when it was being paid by the Wasserman-Schultz DNC, Fusion GPS was working on a smear campaign paid for by Paul Singer, via his Fake Conservative website the Washington Free Beacon.
What was meant to benefit his puppet Marco Rubio in the primaries degenerated into an ugly mess which has thrown the Republican party into disarray. The #NeverTrump movement which operates out of the Manhattan Institute has become toxic in Republican circles. They hate Trump and they hate the Republican base. The feeling is mutual.
Fusion GPS just want everyone to forget about them so they can go back to turning dirty tricks for bags of money.
Putin is quite happy to cause as much carnage in American politics as possible, and Hillary Clinton will tear the entire nation down before she goes to jail for her many crimes.
Her crimes did not begin with selling Putin 1/5 of the nation’s uranium for $145 Million dollars, and they did not end with colluding with the Russians via Fusion GPS to smear her rival. Luring Donald Junior into a meeting added some smoke to an otherwise flimsy dossier of Russian collusion.
Now Veselnitskaya is back in the news again. If Meuller was interested in Russian collusion on any level, Natalia Veselnitskaya would be under indictment.
Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) has been urging the Justice Department to go after Fusion GPS and others who violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act by not filing disclosures required when representing foreign entities.
Bill Browder testified before Grassley:
“Repealing the Magnitsky Act was the single biggest priority of Vladimir Putin and [Veselnitskaya] was acting as the single most active proxy of the Russian government to achieve that objective in Washington.”
The work Veselnitskaya did with Fusion GPS for Katsyv and the work she did for Fusion GPS for Hillary is therefore a continuous body of work. Hillary Clinton very clearly collaborated with Vladimir Putin on it.
Fusion GPS has said that it was working for the law firm BakerHostetler, which was representing Prevezon, a Russian holding company based in Cyprus. Prevezon was laundering the money stolen in the fraud Magnitsky was beaten to death for.
Fusion GPS started working on the case in 2013 and the case was settled in May with no admission of guilt by Prevezon.
Justice, every. Thanks, Jeff Sessions. And now Veselnitskaya is running off at the mouth again?
Fire Jeff, and lock this evil woman up. Both of them.
Full disclosure: John Miller’s IRL name is Frank Faulkner. I currently live in Australia and I write about things that concern me as a Christian, or as a cranky guy. These days I spend all my spare time defending the best (and only worthy) President of the United States since Reagan. Totally worth it. Bring back that 80s prosperity and the Moral Majority, Mr President. Christians4Trump. MAGA.
