Veselnitskaya charged with obstruction of justice - NBC News apple.news/A_Vhb5_3jQgG0h…
Natalia VESELNITSKAYA, who was representing Russian-based PREVEZON Holdings in a fight against forfeiture of assets and money laundering penalties, is accused of submitting an intentionally misleading statement to the court
The indictment is not *directly* related to the Trump Tower meeting.
According to prosecutors, Veselnitskaya presented what she said were investigative findings by the Russian government that exonerated her client when, in actuality, she helped draft the findings in secret cooperation with a Russian prosecutor.
In the Prevezon case, the government accused Prevezon of laundering part of the proceeds of an alleged tax fraud scheme uncovered by Sergei Magnitsky, a Russia accountant who had helped report the fraud to Russian authorities and was later arrested.
2014, the Russian govt sent a report from the Russian Prosecutor General's Office containing investigative findings that purported to exonerate Russian govtpersonnel.
In 2014, Veselnitskaya gave the court a declaration with the report attached saying that she obtained a copy after going to great lengths, including filing a court order.
According to prosecutors, emails show that Veselnitskaya helped draft the report.
