Hillary Clinton was subject of meeting with Russian attorney

NY Times:

Lawyer With Ties to Kremlin Was Said to Have Harmful News

  • Donald Trump Jr. said he met the lawyer in June 2016 at an acquaintance’s request. White House advisers said it was understood that she had compromising information about Hillary Clinton.
  • The meeting was also attended by President Trump’s campaign chairman at the time, Paul J. Manafort, and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner.
Circa reports that the meeting may have been a ruse by the same people who compiled the dirty dossier--Fusion GPS.
...
“We have learned from both our own investigation and public reports that the participants in the meeting misrepresented who they were and who they worked for,” said Mark Corallo, a spokesman for President Trump’s legal team. “Specifically, we have learned that the person who sought the meeting is associated with Fusion GPS, a firm which according to public reports, was retained by Democratic operatives to develop opposition research on the President and which commissioned the phony Steele dossier. "

"These developments raise serious issues as to exactly who authorized and participated in any effort by Russian nationals to influence our election in any manner,” Corallo said.
...
The connection drawn by the president’s lawyers between Veselnitskaya and Fusion GPS comes from a letter this spring by the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Charles Grassley, who disclosed that Fusion GPS also provided litigation support in the Prevezon case.
...
Fusion GPS has not been cooperating with the Congressional investigation of the matter.  It appears to me, that if true, the association of Fusion GPS with this meeting is a bigger deal than the Times lead would have you believe.  From the dirty dossier to this meeting they appear to be the campaign organization with ties to Russia.

This is looking like another story that is blowing up in the face of the Democrats.
