Kucinich: Trump Jr. Meeting Is a 'Bunch of Nothing'

15 July 2017

Natalia Veselnitskaya, a Russian lawyer who Goldstone told Trump Jr. possessed this highly sensitive information, has also confirmed her attendance, although she denies discussing the US election and having any connection to the Russian government.

The most recently submitted form includes disclosures of more than 100 foreign contacts, CBS News reported, along with the now-infamous June 2016 meeting Kushner attended with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, along with Donald Trump Jr., then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort, and an additional Russian lobbyist.

The Russian-American lobbyist who attended a controversial June 2016 meeting with Donald Trump Jr. said he was there by chance, as a result of a last-minute invite, and that he strolled into Trump Tower without anybody asking for proof of who he was.

Akhmetshin also reportedly said that "they couldn't wait for the meeting to end", referring to Trump Jr., Manafort and Kushner.

A former Soviet military counterintelligence officer who met with President Donald Trump's son, son-in-law and campaign manager in June 2016 had previously lobbied Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Costa Mesa, at least twice about US relations with Russian Federation.

He explained that attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya claimed to have information damaging to Hillary Clinton, but it appears that she set up the meeting under false pretenses, as she really wanted to discuss a USA program for the adoption of Russian children.

The latest revelations involving his son, Donald Trump Jr., only serve to further confirm what we already knew - that businessman Trump views the American presidency as a way to line his own pockets and that he is willing to go to great lengths, i.e. lie, cheat and throw his own family and country under the bus, to satisfy his greed.

Two more men are believed to have attended the meeting, including former State Department contractor Anatoli Samochornov, who has ties to Veselnitskaya, and another man.

Mr. Trump, you said that you released the emails because "I wanted to get it all out there" and you accused critics of "trying to drag out the story".

Trump told reporters, in an exchange that was originally off-the-record, but later made public by the White House.

Akhmetshin has been described as a Russian "gun for hire" and a former Soviet-era spy and has worked in the West for years as an advocate for Russian interests.

Blumenthal added that he would not rule out Akhmetshin being subpoenaed, and speculated there may be other meetings that have not been disclosed yet.

Alan Futerfas, Trump Jr.'s lawyer, told The Hill that the lobbyist mentioned in NBC's report was introduced as a "friend of Veselnitskaya".

Browder is set to testify before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee about Veselnitskaya and others, the committee announced this week.

The Magnitsky Act banned officials alleged to be involved in his death from visiting the United States and from using USA banks.

"I just think that he would welcome the opportunity to say everything he wants to say", Grassley told CNN.

"This is everything. This is everything", Trump Jr. responded.
