Veselnitskaya hired law firm BakerHostetler which hired Fusion GPS for Prevezon case on her behalf
Simpson met w/Veslenitskaya before AND after TT meeting
Information Veselnitskaya reportedly had came from Simpson memo.
Not Trump Tower meeting.
Fusion and Veselnitskaya were right about Browder. He is not who he portrays himself to be.
At the same time - separately - Fusion began it's campaign against Trump leading to work w/Steele & the dossier.
Nor was there any information contained in the leaks regarding Steele or his dossier.
Winer also received a separate dossier from longtime Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal.
This “second dossier” had been compiled by another longtime Clinton operative, Cody Shearer, and echoed claims made in the Steele dossier.
“[Browder] aggressively argued to anyone prepared to listen that President Putin had been unfairly maligned in the western press and was intent on bringing prosperity and order to the biggest country in the world.”
Khodorkovsky and Browder have both been supporters of the Magnitsky Act, which has directly targeted their political enemies and provided a shield from Russian retaliation for themselves.
Khodorkovsky did so through his Corbiere Trust, which handles his fortune.
It also lobbied for passage of Senate Resolution 322, which provided express support for Khodorkovsky and co-defendant Platon Lebedev.
APCO lobbied on behalf of the now-defunct Clinton Global Initiative and was involved, at least tangentially, in the Uranium One transaction
That one event accomplished more than Browder or Khodorkovsky could have accomplished in years of lobbying.
The TT meeting rendered the Magnitsky Act politically untouchable.
Winer was one of the early architects of the Magnitsky Act.
Khodorkovsky & Browder provided lobbying muscle.
And impacting our nation’s foreign relation policy in the process.
