BREAKING: Russian Lawyer in Meeting at Trump Tower Has Been Charged

Natalia V. Veselnitskaya
This is a developing story. Return to this post for updates.


Natalia V. Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who in 2016 met with Trump campaign officials in Trump Tower, was charged on Tuesday in a separate case which allegedly also indicates her close ties to the Kremlin, reports The New York Times.

Veselnitskaya was charged by federal prosecutors in New York with seeking to thwart a Justice Department civil fraud investigation into money laundering that involved an influential Russian businessman and his investment firm.

The case is not directly related to the Trump Tower meeting.
