#Veselnitskaya indictment top line: will she cooperate? Likely not.

Part of why Putin poisons and murders people is to discourage that kind of cooperation. But if she does, there’s gotta be a lot she could tell prosecutors.…
Here’s the crazy loop: this indictment of Veselnitskaya/arose out of obstruction of a lawsuit /to seize proceeds of a fraud scheme /one of whose victims was Bill Browder/ whose lawyer Sergei Magnitsky /
was murdered for probing the fraud /which provoked the Russia sanctions /which were the intended topic of the #Trump Tower meeting /which Veselnitskaya attended.

Remember, stung by the Magnitsky Act’s sanctions on Russian officials, Putin stopped all adoptions of Russian children by American families. Cruel counterpunch, but all he had.
So, when @realDonaldTrump says June 9, 2016 Trump Tower meeting topic was “adoptions,” it was really about sanctions repeal.
