Rinat Akhmetshin, a Russian-American lobbyist who attended the infamous Trump Tower meeting dropped a bombshell while being questioned about that meeting.
He also expressed his dislike for Trump and his family. He had contact with the Trump campaign once but had seen Hillary at social events and had contacts with several of her aides. That is not what the Democrats wanted to hear I assure you. But it is true that Hillary has many more contacts with connected Russians than Trump and has made a lot of money because of those contacts. $145 million on Uranium One alone.
Chuck Ross of The Daily Caller reported:
The Russian-American lobbyist who attended the infamous Trump Tower meeting had contacts with members of Hillary Clinton’s inner circle and knew Clinton herself, he told the Senate Judiciary Committee in 2017.
“I knew [Clinton]; I knew some people who worked on her campaign,” the lobbyist, Rinat Akhmetshin, told the Senate Judiciary Committee in closed-door testimony on Nov. 14.
Akhmetshin, a former Soviet military intelligence officer, also said his attorney, Edward Lieberman, knows Clinton well. Lieberman’s late wife, Evelyn Lieberman, was a close confidante of Clinton’s. At one point, Akhmetshin said he was not a fan of President Donald Trump’s family.
Akhmetshin attended the June 9, 2016, Trump Tower meeting with Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya.
Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya was granted special favors by the Obama administration for some strange but obvious reason.
The Homeland Security Department confirmed Friday that Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya was granted special entry to the United States on multiple occasions in 2015 and 2016 at the request of the Justice Department.
It also said Veselnitskaya eventually won a nonimmigrant work visa around the time she met President Trump’s eldest son in New York last summer.
Homeland told The Hill that Veselnitskaya was allowed to enter the United States on multiple occasions between September 2015 and February 2016 under a “Significant Public Benefit Parole” document requested by the Justice Department so she could participate in a court case for a client.
The request was done “in concurrence” with the U.S. attorney’s office in New York City, which was enforcing a civil asset forfeiture case against Prevezon Holdings, a company owned by Russian businessman Denis Katsyv, whom Veselnitskaya represented as a private attorney in their home country.
The Trump Tower meeting was a set up gone wrong.
