It connects Veselnitskaya more directly to Russian frauds and money laundering. SCO also indicted Gates and Manafort to money laundering.
More money laundering dots...

Russian adoption by American families
First: "Bill Browder." A central link to the Prevezon case and Russian framing of him and Magnitsky.
Prevezon was "the Cyprus-registered company...accused in a civil asset forfeiture case by the US Justice Department of having laundered millions in stolen Russian taxpayer money through the Manhattan real estate market."
"Russian adoption" = code for Magnitsky Act, because when the West hit Russia w/ sanctions, Putin retaliated by blocking adoptions from Russia.
Always the talking point for lifting sanctions...

"Anti-money laundering/illicit financial flows activities"
Bottom line: the Trump Tower meeting looks even worse than we had suspected because there are signs it was about specifically about Russian money laundering and sanctions quid pro quo.

And it's about her allegations against Browder using Cyprus-based companies to buy 133m shares of Gazprom against Russian law.
I'd forgotten this:
Looks like she added the Trump Tower meeting.
