Natalia Veselnitskaya [Russian lawyer from Jun 2016 Trump Tower meeting who promised "dirt" on Hillary Clinton] admits she's been an informant for top Kremlin official, prosecutor general Yuri Chaika, since 2013.
"If it's what you say, I love it!"
Emails obtained by Putin opponent Khodorkovsky & shared w/ @RichardEngel exposed Natalia Veselnitskaya as an informant for top Kremlin official, Yuri Chaika. ➞ So, Don Jr, Kushner & Manafort conspired with a Russian govt official for dirt on HRC.
Jul 14, 2017: Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, who met w/ Don Jr, Kushner, & Manafort, says she was in regular contact w/ Kremlin-appointed Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika about US sanctions law. I guess @HouseGOP missed this bit of collusion.
Jul 13, 2017: Trump claimed Veselnitskaya [a Kremlin informant] wasn’t working for the Russian govt in Jun 2016 when she met w/ Don Jr at Trump Tower: “He took a meeting with a Russian lawyer. Not a government lawyer, but a Russian lawyer.” Wrong.
Jul 17, 2013: Russia’s prosecutor general Yuri Chaika, "The Master of Kompromat," believed to be behind Donald Trump Jr’s meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya [Chaika's informant].
Jul 11, 2017: During Rep Rohrabacher's Apr 2016 Moscow trip, he met with prosecutor general Yuri Chaika's office & was given “confidential” documents re sanctions to bring back to DC. Those docs were identical to info Veselnitskaya gave to Don Jr.
Apr 2016: On the same Moscow trip, Rohrabacher also meets w/close Putin ally Yakunin [the boss of Veselnitskaya's husband] & says he'll work to lift sanctions
May 2016: Akhmetshin meets w/ Rohrabacher in DC
Jun 2016: Veselnitskaya meets w/ Don Jr
Recall: Ivanka also met Kremlin informant/spy Veselnitskaya & Russian intelligence-trained 'lobbyist' Akhmetshin in the Trump Tower elevator after their meeting with Don Jr, Kushner, Manafort.
THREAD on Kremlin informant Natalia Veselnitskaya's husband, who worked for the father of Prevezon's Denis Kaysyv. ICYMI, he also worked for Putin ally Yakunin – who Rohrabacher met with in Apr 2016 & promised to lift sanctions.

As an informant, the information Veselnitskaya passed back to the Kremlin was just as important – likely more so – than the info she provided to Don Jr, Jared Kushner & Manafort during the 2016 Trump Tower meeting.

via @jc_stubbs @m_tsvetkova, Jul 21, 2017: "Moscow lawyer who met Trump Jr. had Russian spy agency as client."
Kremlin informant Natalia Veselnitskaya represented the interests of Russia’s domestic intelligence agency – the FSB – from 2005-2013.
