Will She Take Down Don Jr?? Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya charged with obstruction in major Russian money-laundering case | Veterans Today | News

Anyone who gets close to Natalia gets “accidented.” This is a story to watch.

  • New York federal prosecutors on Tuesday charged the Kremlin-allied lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya with obstruction of justice in a major Russian money-laundering case that was settled in 2017.
  • The case, which centered around whether the Russian real-estate firm Prevezon laundered millions into New York real estate, drew attention at the time because of its ties to a separate $230 million Russian tax-fraud scheme that implicated several high-level Kremlin officials and prompted the passage of the 2012 Magnitsky Act.
  • When the US government asked the Russian government for help in investigating the Prevezon case, the Russian government refused and sent over a memo that sought to exonerate Prevezon.
  • According to Tuesday’s indictment, Veselnitskaya, who represented Prevezon in the case, was instrumental in drafting the memo and “in doing so, Veselnitskaya obstructed the civil proceeding.”

Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Kremlin-connected lawyer at the center of a June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Trump campaign officials and several Russians, was charged Tuesday with obstruction of justice in a separate case, The New York Times reported.

Federal prosecutors in New York indicted Veselnitskaya for seeking to hamper a Justice Department investigation into an alleged money laundering operation that involved an elaborate Russian tax-fraud scheme and implicated high-level Kremlin officials.
