Listen to this, folks.
Remember that Russian lawyer Donald Trump Jr. met with last summer trying to get dirt on Hillary Clinton? Well, she has been forthright all along about what happened. However, the Senate Judiciary Committee isn’t wanting her statements to be made public.
Quid Pro Quo
According to Bloomberg, Natalia Veselnitskaya for the first time ever is now saying that Trump Jr. indicated a little quid pro quo arrangement and specified in the meeting that a law hurting Russia could be “re-examined” when Trump becomes president.
“Looking ahead, if we come to power, we can return to this issue and think what to do about it,’’ Trump Jr. said of the 2012 law, she recalled. “I understand our side may have messed up, but it’ll take a long time to get to the bottom of it,” he added, according to her.
When Trump Jr. set foot in that room at Trump Tower in New York, he knew he was meeting with an acting agent of Russia, at least that was what he was told in documented emails. Trump Jr. tried to deny this, but the evidence against him is irrefutable.
Veselnitskaya says she would tell the Senate Judiciary this information, but they have not allowed it to go public. This information was obtained during a two and a half interview in Moscow. Veselnitskaya indicates that she is ready to give Special Counsel Robert Mueller this information and is willing to testify against the Trump administration.
This shows that the Trump campaign was working with Russia in order to defeat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential elections, and her testimony will play a key role in proving collusion.
Previously, Trump Jr. said he “wasted his time” because the lawyer provided no useful information, but we now know this isn’t entirely true. Veselnitskaya told Trump’s son and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and then campaign manager Paul Manafort, that major Democratic donors had evaded U.S. taxes in giving to Hillary Clinton’s campaign (dirt on Clinton), and while she couldn’t provide any documents, he was given the information nonetheless.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller has already arrested Paul Manafort, and Manafort’s testimony (if he flips on Trump, which he is expected to) could also be very damaging to Trump.
