Russian lawyer involved in Trump Tower meeting charged in separate case

Russian who attended Trump Tower meeting charged with obstruction of justice

Veselnitskaya is not in the U.S. and it's unlikely that she'll ever see court or be taken into custody unless she leaves Russian Federation.

Veselnitskaya helped represent Prevezon in the case, in which the company was alleged to have laundered $14 million in proceeds of the Moscow tax refund scam through NY real estate.

A digest of the top political stories from the Globe, sent to your inbox Monday-Friday. (President Trump's son), the Trump Organization's Jared Kushner (the president's son in law and Ivanka Trump's husband) and Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort.

"The evidentiary basis for the case seems strong", Dershowitz continued, "but the question is: is this a case that would have been brought had she not been a Russian who attended the meeting at Trump Tower?".

Prosecutors allege she made a "misleading" declaration to the court in the process of representing her client Prevezon Holdings, Ltd. U.S. federal prosecutors claim she concealed from the court that she had participated in drafting supposed exculpatory evidence presented to the U.S. court with a senior Russian prosecutor.

The indictment charges that after the Justice Department asked the Russian government to assist its investigation, the Russian government refused, responding with a letter that purported to exonerate Russian officials and the firm's personnel.

After Magnitsky discovered the alleged fraud, he was arrested and held for nearly a year in pretrial detention in Moscow, where he eventually died at age 37, the US indictment filed at the time alleges. The response "purported to accuse" deceased Russian accountant Sergei Magnitsky of involvement in the fraud. She has previously denied working on behalf of the Russian government.

Veselnitskaya is based in Moscow at the law firm Camerton Consulting.

Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya speaks during an interview in Moscow, Russia November 8, 2016. Yet, the USA government pushed back on that characterization. The case was settled in 2017, with Prevezon paying a $5.9 million fine without admitting any wrongdoing. In April 2018, however - just over a year after the Prevezon case was settled and closed - United States government propaganda outlet RFE/RL reported the existence of the emails, sourcing them to Dossier, an outfit run by Browder's fellow ex-oligarch and Kremlin critic Mikhail Khodorkovsky.

Veselnitskaya worked closely with Fusion GPS to investigate Browder.

The meeting at Trump Tower in June 2016 is being looked into by special counsel Robert Mueller as he probes whether there was any collusion between members of the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. His campaign eventually led to the passage of the Magnitsky Act, which resulted in sanctions against Russian officials accused of human rights abuses.

She said in the questionnaire that she attended the meeting to lobby for a re-examination of the Magnitsky Act.
