    The list of democrats tied to the Russian lawyer are now being revealed....the democrats push this line of crap at their own peril....

    Russian Lawyer Who Met with Donald Trump Jr. Worked With Democrats For Years

    For example, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group revealed on Wednesday that California Rep. Ron Dellums was a hired lobbyist for Veselnitskaya.

    According to a Washington Post story, she worked for years on a case with Glenn Simpson, the founder of Fusion GPS, a firm that produced a widely discredited dossier against Trump.

    She also worked with Christopher Cooper, the founder and CEO of Potomac Square Group, which has had Democratic clients including California Government Jerry Brown, Democratic presidential nominee Howard Dean, and Joe Trippi, according to the Daily Caller.

    And it was Obama’s Attorney General Loretta Lynch that granted her an extension in late 2015 to stay in the U.S. after her visa was due to expire, under “extraordinary circumstances” related to defending a case in New York, according to The Hill. She was granted an extension through January, but it’s not yet clear how she was able to be in the U.S. in June 2016, when she met with Trump Jr., and again January 2017.


    Four days after her meeting with Trump Jr. on June 9, 2016, she was in Washington, D.C. for a movie screening of an anti-Magnitsky Act film at the Newseum with at least five congressional staffers and State Department officials, according to The Hill.

    The next day she attended a House hearing, sitting in the front row behind Obama’s former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, who was testifying, according to photos of the hearing. McFaul has taken to Twitter to claim that Republicans placed her there, apparently next to his family members, and has denied any meetings with her.

    Around that time, Veselnitskaya also attended a dinner with the chairman of the House subcommittee overseeing Russia policy, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), and about 20 other guests, according to the The Hill. Rohrabacher said he believed she and Dellums were there lobbying other lawmakers to reverse the Magnitsky Act.

    WHY WOULD THE DNC SET UP TRUMP'S CAMPAIGN AND NOT USE IT BEFORE THE ELECTION AND INSTEAD WAIT UNTIL JULY THE FOLLOWING YEAR? IT MAKES NO FUCKING SENSE. THEY WOULD HAVE RELEASED THE INFO BEFORE THE ELECTION TO HELP CLINTON WIN.

    GIVE IT UP... IT WAS NOT SOME KIND OF TRICKY SET UP!

    That weed Trump Jr. bought was really Oregano.

    You just tripped over your own argument, why was Russian issue only important after Hillary lost and not before to help her win?
    DEMS were cheating the election left and right, so they never expected to lose and the set up meetings were part of that cheating mainly to allow them surveillance of their oppnonent and were never illegal to bring up before election, because they were all citizens. The only illegal thing that transpired was the spying on those citizens by the Dems for political motive, who used these Russians as agents to do so (perhaps without their knowledge).

    Because nobody thought the country would be stupid enough to actually elect Trump after someone else got 3 million more votes.

    Waaaah, the Mean Old Democrats actually watched us as we committed treason!!!!

    Come on, bottom line, your boy Junior went to that meeting hoping to get dirt on Hillary. That's a crime.

    /---- They honestly didn't think Trump would win. Besides DT Jr is a strong conservative, articulate and smart as hell. Dems have no one on their bench for 2020 so they need to take Jr out of play now. This is the first salvo.

    /---- The Popular vote is a meaningless statistic. Do I need to repost the 1960 World Series analogy for the hundredth time?

    Of course it was a tricky set-up, and used before the election. They hoped the shouting over "Russian collusion" and pointing fingers would turn the odds to Hillary's favor without too much blowback.

    They didn't seem to realize that the more you shout, the more attention turns to the shouter, and now they are themselves embroiled in the very thing they tried to foist on Trump.
