“THEY WANTED INFORMATION SO BADLY”: RUSSIAN ATTORNEY WHO MET WITH DON TRUMP, JR. TURNS ON HIM

NBC News interviewed the Kremlin-connected attorney who met with Donald Trump, Jr. on June 9, 2016.

Here are some highlights:

  1. “When asked how Trump Jr. seemed to have the impression that she had information about the Democratic National Committee, she responded: “It is quite possible that maybe they were longing for such an information. They wanted it so badly that they could only hear the thought that they wanted.”
  2. “In the meeting, she explained how Trump Jr. asked her just one question. “The question that I was asked was as follows: whether I had any financial records which might prove that the funds used to sponsor the DNC were coming from inappropriate sources.” Veselnitskaya had no records and said “it was never my intention to collect any financial records to that end.”‘
  3. “Veselnitskaya described how difficult the past few days have been since the story broke. “Imagine yourself in my shoes. One morning you wake up and all of a sudden you are the focus of all the high ranking, upstream media of the world,” she said. “To summarize, those were not the happiest days of my life, I have to say. I have to break up my holiday. I have to take a trip back to Moscow, because I just wanted to be able to answer the questions myself.”’
