I Wish Her Name Was Svetlana*

So about the Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Daily Beast looks into who she is:

The Russian lawyer who peddled dirt on Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump Jr.has ties to former Russian military and intelligence officials, a key congressional committee will hear in testimony next week.

William Browder, an American financier who has investigated Russian corruption for more than a decade, will brief the Senate Judiciary Committeeat a hearing next week on the lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya’s ties to the Russian government—including to former top members of the GRU and the FSB, two of the Kremlin’s main intelligence agencies. Those ties were spelled out in documents that Browder shared with the committee and provided to The Daily Beast this week.

And here is the paragraph that jumped out at me:

“The key point is that essentially no Russian citizen or lawyer has compromising material on Hillary Clinton which has not been supplied to them from Russian intelligence,” Mowatt-Larssen wrote on Tuesday. “The simple assertion that she had such information is tantamount to declaring that Veselnitskaya was acting as agent of Russian government in this particular role.”

* When I had my security clearance, every year we had to have a recertification. And every year they showed us a film with a fat schlub being seduced by a Russian Victoria Secret-type model (named Svetlana).

    Russian pee hookers were crazy enough, a Russian pee lawyer is another thing entirely.

  2. Tengrain,

    In another life, I was the USAF with a security clearance, and I may have seen the VERY same movie. Further, in our specialty upgrade classes, a few lectures were on security, and in one lecture the officer in charge warned us of a particular bar in a nearby town which was supposed to be frequented by people who might be Communists. I was at that VERY bar with my boss, before being warned away, and I never saw one woman there pretty enough for whom I would blow my career. In fact, although many of the patrons were locals, many others were older airmen (read lifers). I preferred to hang out at bars frequented by people my own age near the local university!

      Sharti – did they suggest watching The Falcon and the Snowman to you, too. I giggled every single time they said it.

      They also included some video of a guy walking out of the building with a YUGE potted plant that had secret stuff buried in it. I was shaking with laughter at that point.

    That’s hilarious! “Former Russian military and intelligence officials…”: No such animal exists; the FSB is worse than la costra nostra that way.

    Also, FWIW – they (the Feds) have mostly gone to a 5 year security clearance recertification, and even then there’s no rush; was informed last October that OPM would be sending an investigator to do my interview but because they were so behind, it might be six months before s/he contacted me. I figure at this rate we’ll be in a new fiscal year before I talk with anyone…


  4. You got the right picture though. “Natasha” is the diminutive of “Natalia”…

  5. a historical footnote – svetlana was the name of stalin’s daughter – wikipedia says:

    Svetlana Iosifovna Alliluyeva (Russian: Светла́на Ио́сифовна Аллилу́ева, Georgian: სვეტლანა იოსებინა ალილუევა; 28 February 1926 – 22 November 2011) (born Svetlana Iosifovna Stalina, Russian: Светла́на Ио́сифовна Сталина, Georgian: სვეტლანა იოსებინა სტალინა), later known as Lana Peters, was the youngest child and only daughter of Soviet Premier Joseph Stalin and Nadezhda Alliluyeva, Stalin’s second wife. In 1967, she caused an international furor when she defected and became a naturalized citizen of the United States until 1984 when she returned to the Soviet Union and had her Soviet citizenship returned. She later went back to the United States and also spent time in the United Kingdom and France. She was the last surviving child of Stalin.
