And this just in…
President Donald Trump’s son, son-in-law, and campaign chairman met with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya just weeks after Trump clinched the Republican nomination, The New York Times reported on Saturday.
Veselnitskaya is known for waging a harsh campaign against the 2012 Magnitsky Act, which blacklisted Russians suspected of human rights abuses, and has strong ties to the Kremlin. She is married to a former deputy transportation minister of the Moscow region, and her clients have included Russian state-owned businesses.
She is also the family lawyer for Denis Katsyv, the son of senior Russian government official Pyotr Katsyv and owner of the Cyprus-incorporated real-estate company Prevezon. Prevezon was under investigation by the Department of Justice at the time the meeting occurred over whether it laundered millions of dollars into New York City real estate.
