BOY THIS IS GETTING MURKY

Donald Trump Jnr is on a slippery slope to 'somewhere' as his dealings with Russian Attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya come under the microscope.   

Now it transpires that Vesselnitskaya, who met with Trump Jr. in June 2016, was working for a Cyprus-based real estate holdings company called Prevezon, run by Denis Katsyv, son of Pyotr Katsyv, one of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s closest advisers.

Prevezon was working to have the Magnitsky Act repealed.   What is the Magnitski Act?     The Act is a bipartisan bill passed by the US Congress and signed by into law by President Obama in 2012 intending to punish Russian officials responsible for the death of Russian lawyer Sergi Magnitski in a Moscow prison in 2009.

So why the concern?   Well Magnitski was Bill Browder's lawyer who, in acting for him, ran foul of the Russian authorities after accusing them of stealing hundreds of millions of dollars through tax refunds and then laundering the money through New York banks. The scheme was allegedly run by Prevezon Holdings whose attorney, Veselnitskaya, was working to get the sanctions reversed.  

And who is Bill Browder.   William Felix Browder is the Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of the investment fund Hermitage Capital Management and noted critic of Vladimir Putin.   He also happens to be the grandson of Earl Browder, hardline Chairman of the National Committee of the Communist Party USA from 1930 to 1945.

Confused!!!!! ... boy this is getting murky.

And even murkier, Vesselnitskaya was in the USA illegally during Obama's watch, (sans viza) when she met with Donald Junior.

Another smell from the media who will never tell the whole story of this Russian small time lawyer.
It does not suit the media.

Paulus......you are a product of your own imagination. There is no "media" that has a central nervous system and thinks as one. There is no collusion. (Thanks to Kellyanne)
