Hillary’s Fusion GPS Operative Met With Russian Lawyer Before And After Trump Jr. Meeting

Analysts have long speculated that the meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya was a setup by Fusion GPS.  Veselnitskaya had worked with Fusion GPS going back 10 years on smear campaigns for the Kremlin. 

Fox News Reports 

The co-founder of Fusion GPS, the firm behind the unverified Trump dossier, met with a Russian lawyer before and after a key meeting she had last year with Trump’s son, Fox News has learned. The contacts shed new light on how closely tied the firm was to Russian interests, at a time when it was financing research to discredit then-candidate Donald Trump.

The opposition research firm has faced renewed scrutiny after litigation revealed that the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign paid for that research. Congressional Republicans have since questioned whether that politically financed research contributed to the FBI’s investigation of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign – making Fusion’s 2016 contacts with Russian interests all the more relevant.

The June 2016 Trump Tower meeting involving Donald Trump Jr. and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya occurred during a critical period. At that time, Fox News has learned that bank records show Fusion GPS was paid by a law firm for work on behalf of a Kremlin-linked oligarch while paying a former British spy Christopher Steele to dig up dirt on Trump through his Russian contacts.

But hours before the Trump Tower meeting on June 9, 2016, Fusion co-founder and ex-Wall Street Journal reporter Glenn Simpson was with Veselnitskaya in a Manhattan federal courtroom, a confidential source told Fox News. Court records reviewed by Fox News, email correspondence and published reports corroborate the pair’s presence together. The source told Fox News they also were together after the Trump Tower meeting.

Of course, Fusion GPS is the very same firm that originated accusations that the Trump Campaign colluded with Russia in the 2016 election. If indeed this meeting was a setup, it could make all evidence collected through this investigation fruit of the poisonous tree, rendering it inadmissible in court. 

Calls on Capitol Hill gain steam for a special counsel to investigate the Russian purchase of 20% of the US Uranium supply as Mueller’s investigation melts down into little more than a team of tax law enforcers.
