Russian lawyer from Trump Tower attends a House hearing on U.S. treatment of Russia

Dates on Trump File reflect when something happens, not when it's first reported.

Natalia Veselnitskaya, one of the two Russian lawyers who organized the Trump Tower meeting a few days before, gets a front row seat at the House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on “U.S. Policy Toward Putin’s Russia.”

Veselnitskaya’s role has raised questions about how close she is to the Kremlin, and why the Trump campaign — which has denied colluding with Moscow — agreed to a meeting with a person described to them as a Russian government attorney who could provide information detrimental to Clinton.

Veselnitskaya was denied a visa for entering the United States but obtained special permission, a parole letter, to represent one of her clients: a business that was accused of buying U.S. real estate with laundered funds. But while she was here, she spent her time advocating against the Magnitsky Act and U.S. sanctions on Russia… and meeting with the Trump campaign, of course.
