This is what makes Russia a hostile power

If she's hiding, she's hiding in plain sight.

Veselnitskaya represented Dennis Katsyv, Prevezon's owner.

As twists go, it's not exactly on par with finding out who Keyser Söze really is, but it's intriguing.

Nor does the Trump Jr. meeting appear to be anything more than dirt-mongering.

President Trump is soon to be invited to testify about what he knew of the meeting and what information was passed along, if any. After that, Mr. Kolga said, a member of Russia's Civic Chamber called for Russian prosecutors to investigate his anti-Russian activities. And as it happens, one is before the Canadian Parliament right now.

State Department officials and congressional staffers also attended the movie event.

While Veselnitskaya has denied Kremlin ties, a letter in the Prevezon case indicates she had at least some interaction with the Russian government.

On June 4, 2017, Yuri Chaika, Russia's general prosecutor, said on national television that his agency "has presented serious evidence of violations of the law by Browder and the Ziff brothers" to U.S. officials. But here we are, about six months in, and Trump has shown no intention of fulfilling one of his biggest campaign promises, to implement a 45% tariff on Chinese imports. And the way to overturn the adoption ban is to overturn the Magnitsky law.

After leaving the prosecutor's office, Mitusov became deputy transport minister under Pyotr Katsyv, Gromov's deputy and the regional transport minister. Katsyv has since worked in top jobs for Russia's railroad monopoly and a major hydrocarbon transport company. The second entry came as a result of a request from a federal judge to the DoJ rather than a DoJ action on its own. John Dillard, a spokesman for Prevezon's attorneys, told Business Insider at the time that the settlement came as "a surprise", and Veselnitskaya reportedly told a Russian news outlet that the penalty was so light "it seemed almost an apology from the government".

The businessman Bill Browder hired the lawyer Sergei Magnitsky to defend him against tax evasion charges.

President Trump meets with Russian President Vladimir Putin. "There was a lot of other things going on", Rohrabacher told The Hill. The incarcerated population in 2016 was over 2.2 million!

There you have it. I have written this as a demonstration of how to competently criticize the Trump administration without ever mentioning Russia.

Glenn Simpson, a former Wall Street Journal reporter who helped start political intelligence firm Fusion GPS, is to testify at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Wednesday about the Justice Department's '(Non) Enforcement of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, ' according to the panel. But his real power base is in the Moscow Region. "It was in the previous administration".

Days after the Trump Tower meeting, she appeared in Washington, D.C., for the screening of the film, "The Magnitsky Act - Behind the Scenes", at the Newseum.

It is a bizarre kind of tit-for-tat. Browder also said he suspected she made similar attempts to contact the Clinton campaign. That's, like, one level.

Now why would ABC News use the SPLC (an actual hate group with a mission to scare people into agreeing with their lefty agenda or face being labelled with bad words) designation for the Alliance Defending Freedom? One of these companies was Prevezon.

I don't know if Trump is incompetent, or just doesn't care. If she were some sort of elite Russian agent, she ought to have known English. Credible charges to that effect should be taken with extreme seriousness.
