Federal indictment in NY confirms Natalia V. Veselnitskaya has deep ties to Senior Russian government officials.

For years Veselnitskaya has been regarded as a trusted insider & go-to lawyer for Moscow regional government. nytimes.com/2019/01/08/nyr…
Veselnitskaya was charged by federal prosecutors in New York with seeking to thwart Justice Department civil fraud investigation into money laundering that involved influential Russian businessman & his investment firm.
The indictment says Veselnitskaya had secretly cooperated with a senior Russian prosecutor in drafting the Russian response, which was filed in federal court in Manhattan.

“In doing so, Veselnitskaya obstructed the civil proceeding” the indictment charged.
New indictment raises questions about whom Veselnitskaya was representing when she met with Don Jr, Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort & others at tRump Tower in Manhattan during campaign.

That meeting is one focus of Mueller investigation into Russia’s interference in 2016 election.
Prosecutors say she collaborated clandestinely with that office to write an official letter that benefitted her client, the investment firm Prevezon Holdings Ltd & its owner, Denis P. Katsyv, in Justice Department’s civil fraud case.
In fraud case, filed in 2013, prosecutors in Southern District accused Prevezon & other defendants of using real estate purchases in NY to launder small portion of profits of elaborate $230 million Russian tax fraud scheme.
The broader Russian scheme had been uncovered by Sergei L. Magnitsky, a Russian lawyer who was imprisoned after exposing the scheme & died in a Moscow jail.
