An extraordinary revelation has come out about the Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, who met with Donald Trump Jr. prior to the election. She had previously been denied a visa to enter the United States. However, the Department of Justice under Loretta Lynch found that there were “extraordinary” circumstances present and allowed her to enter the country without a visa. The reasons for this action, that is very rare, are murky at best.
However, it is known that while she was here she met with members of Congress, including both Democrats and Republicans to discuss American adoptions of Russian children. She also met with journalists and Obama State Department officials and ultimately with Donald Trump Jr. This has led some people to wonder if there was collusion between Trump and the Russians, or perhaps between the Democrats and the Russians.
