Another day, another nothingburger from the Russian-collusion-obsessed left wing mainstream media, as the Russian lawyer who met briefly last year with Trump Jr. said she had no ties with Kremlin, as opposed to fake-news MSM’s claims.
Regardless of the drama and sensationalist headlines from the last couple of days, the Russian lawyer stepped up to plate and set things straight, as she gave an extensive interview for NBC during which she denied any Kremlin connection, while explaining they’ve mostly discussed about adoptions in the United States.
Natalia Veselnitskaya publicly denied the allegations in the Carlos Slim’s blog (the New York Times), saying that the meeting with Trump Jr. was about her client’s interests into persuading Donald Trump’s son to take action against the Magnitsky Act, and had nothing to do with providing compromising intel on Hillary Clinton.
To quote from the NBC interview:
“I never had any damaging or sensitive information about Hillary Clinton. It was never my intention to have that.
When asked about the allegations from the NYT about Trump Jr. seeking intel regarding the DNC, Natalia Veselnitskaya replied:
“It is quite possible that maybe they were longing for such an information. They wanted it so badly that they could only hear the thought that they wanted.”
Carlo Slim’s blog alleged that Natalia Veselnitskaya was a Kremlin connected lawyer, whatever that means. During the NBC interview, the Russian lawyer denied NYT’s unsubstantiated claims (they provided zero proof as usual), saying she only works for challenging the Magnitsky Act.
Read between the lines…Adoptions…Hillary….Russia had banned US adoptions of Russian children because of our child trafficking problem (Magnitsky Act). I think the Democrats are projecting again, because this story gets too uncomfortable and too close to some of their pundits. Donald Trump Junior probably was doing some opposition research (which isn’t a crime by any metrics). He was probably digging into Hillary’s Euro/Russian pedophile ratline and that’s a taboo subject in certain circles.
Obviously I’m the first person on a campaign to ever take a meeting to hear info about an opponent… went nowhere but had to listen. https://t.co/ccUjL1KDEa

Media & Dems are extremely invested in the Russia story. If this nonsense meeting is all they have after a yr, I understand the desperation!
