Countable Explains: Who's Who in the Russia Investigation

Natalia Veselnitskaya

In the email introduction setting up the June 2016 meeting with Donald Trump Jr., Veselnitskaya was described as a "Russian government attorney" who had dirt on Hillary Clinton. While some have claimed she’s a Moscow insider, the Kremlin has said it doesn’t know Veselnitskaya. What is known is that she’s based in Moscow at the law firm Camerton Consulting, and for the past four years has lobbied Congress to repeal the Magnitsky Act.

  • November 9, 2017: It’s reported that the memo Veselnitskaya wanted to give Donald Trump Jr. and co. at the June 2016 meeting was prepared by Fusion GPS—the same firm that’s responsible for the Steele dossier. In an interview with Bloomberg earlier in the week, the Russian lawyer said she went to the meeting to provide proof of tax evasion by major Democratic Donors.
