And suddenly Natalia Veselnitskaya, 42-year-old Moscow lawyer, was the hottest track in the hunt for contacts between Moscow and the immediate environment of Donald trump in connection with the presidential election in the United States.
About Natalia Veselnitskaya was little known in Russia and abroad before the New York Times at the end of the week was able to announce that Veselnitskaya 9 June last year, was invited to a meeting in trump Tower in new York with three key figures in the election campaign trump: his eldest son Donald trump Jr., his son-in-law Jared Kusher (Jared Kusher) and then leader of his campaign Paul Manafort (Paul Manafort).
Completely disastrous meeting?
If only all parties involved, that is, the camp tramp, a British event organizer Rob Goldstone (Rob Goldstone) and Veselnitskaya don’t lie, the meeting did not happen.

Two construction magnate
Goldstone, who worked at the time, a tabloid journalist, and now steering a PR firm in new York, said in an interview with the New York Times that the organization is meaningless meeting “was a waste of time.” In his e-mail he lured trump Jr. that Veselnitskaya represented the Russian government, and that the General Prosecutor of Russia at the meeting with one of their mutual friends, a major Russian businessman-Builder of Azerbaijani origin Aras Agalarov proposed to transfer the command of the trump documents containing compromising information about Hillary Clinton.
Family Agalarov and trump have known each other since 2013, when peel persuaded trump to hold in Moscow the Miss Universe contest.
“I never had compromising information about Hillary Clinton,” said Natalia Veselnitskaya Thursday, giving an interview to American TV channel NBC.
