The Russian lawyer lady, Natalia Veselnitskaya, (you know her from from the infamous meeting at Trump Tower with Junior Mints and the rest of the crooks and mouth-breathing deficients in the 2016 Goat Rodeo Campaign) was charged Tuesday with obstructing justice in a money-laundering investigation:
“Veselnitskaya and others at Trump Tower in Manhattan on June 9, 2016, represented Prevezon Holdings in a civil case in which the U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan sought millions of dollars in forfeiture from the company and others. The department had alleged in a civil complaint that a Russian criminal organization ran an elaborate tax refund scheme, stealing the identities of targeted companies and filing sham lawsuits to incur fake losses for refund purposes.
“Those involved made about $230 million in tax refunds, prosecutors said, and filtered the money through shell companies and eventually into Prevezon, a Cyprus-based real estate corporation. Prevezon, prosecutors said, laundered the funds into real estate, including by investing in high-end commercial property and luxury apartments in Manhattan.”
So she’s not just a crook, she’s a Trump Crime Family-level crook! $230M Ameros could buy Junior Mints about an hour of the attention he craves from Daddy
Dumbest, er, Dearest.
