The Russian lawyer who gave Donald Trump Jr. information on the Democratic National Committee previously represented Moscow’s spy agency in court, Reuters reported Friday. Natalia Veselnitskaya was retained by the FSB, the KGB’s successor, in a property dispute between 2005 and 2013, according to court documents seen by Reuters. Veselnitskaya has previously denied any ties to the Kremlin, despite her U.S. lobbying effort against the Magnitsky Act, which sanctioned prominent Russians.
Of course she has ties to Russia spy agencies. Is anyone actually surprised? https://t.co/uTBR8t0upN
