Russian lawyer questions why Mueller hasn't contacted her
AP via Yahoo News ^ | April 22, 2018 | NATALIYA VASILYEVA

A Russian lawyer who discussed sanctions with Donald Trump Jr. in New York during his father's 2016 campaign for the U.S. presidency said Sunday that special counsel Robert Mueller has not contacted her yet.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Natalia Veselnitskaya also detailed her recent meeting in Berlin with investigators from the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee. Like Mueller, the committee is investigating allegations of Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election.

This is hugely scandalous and indicates how biased and dishonest the Mueller investigation really is. She may not be a reliable or honest witness, who knows at this point, but to not even interview the person at the crossroads of Trump Tower and FusionGPS, etc. is utterly incompetent, or worse. The Mueller team does not even WANT to get at the facts about FusionGPS, obviously.

Q said we should just trust the plan. So sit back, watch it all and do nothing.

Oddly, she thinks Glenn Simpson was “framed” in the FusionGPS role (which is BS, he was a very willing stooge)..... and she also maintains her innocence of any connection with the Russian govt in these matters....

Her testimony may go against the grain of several different views and theories.... it certainly should have been obtained, as thoroughly as possible, with careful cross-examination.

I would not trust her, of course, but she may have interesting information that could be checked against other sources and documents.

All it means is that he’s decided that particular incident is not a criminal matter. I would not lament the fact that she’s not being questioned.

Oh yeah, that MASTER PLAN.

I hope things will still unravel for the various Democrap and MSM plotters, but it won’t be thanks to any grand plan from Sessions or Mueller. It will be in spite of them.

Mueller does not know what she may know about FusionGPS, Democrats, and the origins of the “Russia narrative” ... which may well involve criminal acts.... so clearly Mueller & co. are not interested in getting the facts out.

Mueller hasn’t asked to see the DNC server that was allegedly “hacked”. You’d think that would be central to the investigation.

They aren’t investigating GPS. They are investigating Trump. That is what the letter appointing Mueller says.

She was a Fusion GPS plant.
As such, Mulehead does not want to know the truth.

She requested her 15 minutes and hasn’t received them yet... Just another flunky in an investigation that is full of them and lacking in any real witnesses and any real crimes.

When someone you don’t know personally tells you, “trust me,” that’s an initial clue that you should not.

The Obama DoJ, FBI, and the Hillary campaign set up the meeting, so of course Mueller hasn’t interviewed her.

America is rotting away as this BS festers. It is all by design and we are being played. It is fantasy to think that we are going to eventually win any of this let alone bring anyone to justice. I find it shocking that POTUS did not cleaned house of ALL Obama holdovers to begin with and has not removed those who want to destroy him. AG Sessions is a pathetic player in all of this. The GOP is a coconspirator.

It is preposterous for Mueller not to have interviewed her about everything — the Trump, Jr. meeting, who helped her enter the US, her knowledge about the “dossier”, and all her dealings and discussions with Simpson, Steele, et al. On the other hand, nothing she says can be trusted. She could easily spout false anti-Trump material that Mueller’s team will leak, even if they know it is bogus. Will be interesting to see what if anything comes out from her discussion with the Senate investigators.

It is borderline unbelievable that - a year into his investigation - Mueller has not interviewed the woman who is central to the only known link between the Trump campaign and any Russian operatives.

I am merely noting how un-serious and biased the whole thing has been.

I thought the meeting was about adoptions?

In this instance, sanctions and adoptions are intertwined. The USA sanctioned Russia through the Magnitsky Act and Russia retaliated by banning adoption of Russian children by Americans. That's what the meeting was supposed to be about. Some claim it was actually about the Trump campaign buying a "dirty dossier" on Hillary Clinton from Russia.
