Asked Russian Lawyer for Hillary Clinton Dirt in Writing

Asked Russian Lawyer for Hillary Clinton Dirt in Writing

The Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr.to provide political dirt on Democrats during the 2016 election said the president's son offered a change in USA law "if we come to power", but the Trump team promptly lost interest when the lawyer could not provide information incriminating Hillary Clinton. Veselnitskaya told Bloomberg she's prepared to meet with Mueller, which will presumably happen.

Veselnitskaya also told Bloomberg that she would be happy to travel to the U.S.to be interviewed by the Senate Judiciary Committee, but only if her answers are made public-a condition the Senate hasn't agreed to yet.

Natalia Veselnitskaya and Rinat Akhmetshin met with Donald Trump's son and top aides past year, when his campaign colluded with Russian efforts to influence the election.

Trump Jr. took the meeting, which was also attended by Trump's son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort, after being told that the information on Clinton was "part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump, " according to emails he released in response to the Times' reporting.

Trump Jr.'s explanation for the meeting repeatedly changed.

During the suspension, the only events Greek life members can conduct are meetings with the university or their national chapter. They will, however, be allowed to stay in their houses and have meal service.

It's unclear whether Russian Federation ever passed on information about Clinton.

"The question is what the Russian lawyer understood Trump Jr.to mean during the conversation", Mariotti said.

Veselnitskaya said she was lobbying against the so-called 2012 Magnitsky law that imposed travel bans and sanctions on Russian officials accused of plotting to murder an accountant, Sergey Magnitsky.

The dossier also contributed in part to the FBI's initial investigation into Russian collusion and the Trump campaign.

Veselnitskaya says Trump Jr. indicated that a law targeting Russian Federation could be re-examined if Donald Trump were elected, Bloomberg reports.

Weah topped the 10 October poll with 38.4 percent of ballots cast to Boakai's 28.8 percent, while Brumskine scored 9.6 percent. Vice President Joseph Boakai , left, is due to face former footballer star George Weah in Liberia's presidential runoff vote.

Veselnitskaya told the president's son she had information that Clinton's campaign may have received some of nearly $1 billion the wealthy Ziff brothers gained from Russian investments that allegedly evaded USA taxes.

Magnitsky died in a Moscow prison in 2009 after uncovering a tax fraud that diverted $230 million of Russian state funds into the pockets of a handful of civil servants.

Veselnitskaya is defending a Russian businessman in the US on a money-laundering case related to the Magnitsky law. She also said that, if she is asked, she will testify in special counsel Robert Mueller's probe.

"If it's what you say, I love it", Trump Jr. responded. Kushner left after a few minutes and Manafort appeared to have fallen asleep.

According to Bloomberg, the brothers' investment company contributed to both Democrats and Republicans since the 2012 election cycle. After the Act was passed in 2012, Russian Federation banned adoption from Russian Federation to the U.S. She is seeking a public hearing to tell her story, and continues to deny having any information about Russian hacking.

He said there was a "great probability" that the two leaders would discuss the situation on the Korean peninsula if they met. Abe told reporters after the golf session that the two could talk frankly in a relaxed atmosphere while out on the course.

Without "strong proof" that the government's denial was made "irrationally or in bad faith", the judge said there is no basis for him to interfere with a decision that sits squarely within the purview of the Executive Branch.
