    Lynch distances herself from Russian lawyer after Trump attack

    Lynch distances herself from Russian lawyer after Trump attack



    Veselnitskaya was granted the special immigration parole for the limited purpose of defending a company owned by a Russian businessman in a Justice Department asset forfeiture case, but later participated in a wide-ranging pro-Russia lobbying campaign.

    Over the summer of 2016, Veselnitskaya met with current and former lawmakers from both parties and was spotted in the front row of a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on Russia.

    In June of 2016, Trump Jr., White House senior adviser Jared Kushner and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort took a meeting with Veselnitskaya. A music promoter told Trump Jr. that Veselnitskaya had dirt on then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. But Trump Jr. said the Russian lawyer instead pushed for changes to the Magnitsky Act, which punished Russians for human rights violations.

    Democrats have seized on the meeting, claiming it as evidence that Trump officials sought to collude with the Russians in the campaign.

    “She was here because of Lynch,” Trump said at a press conference in Paris with French President Emmanuel Macron.

    “Nothing happened from the meeting,” Trump added. “Zero happened from the meeting, and honestly I think the press made a big deal over something that many people would do.”
    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

    “There is a deeply anti-democratic undercurrent to much of the criticism of the new president, borne aloft by an assumption that democracy is too important to be left to the voters.”

    The Democrats have tried to make a mountain over a molehill, and I am not convinced the whole thing wasn't a dirty trick set up top denigrate Don Jr.
    It's about time this crap stopped. It's sickening the way democrats have fought the Trump administration.

    Lynch has apparently thought all the Russian lawyer wanted was to discuss grandkids.

    I can understand her wanting to put distance between herself and this Russian.
    It's a bit like she is trying to get dog doo off her shoe after she stepped in it.
