Set-up? Veselnitskaya Facebook page filled with anti-Putin, anti-Trump posts; Report

The so-called “mainstream media” and their liberal puppets would have us believe that Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya amounts to “treason” and an effort to collude with the Kremlin against Hillary Clinton.  But, Makada Duncanson said at the American Mirror, Veselnitskaya’s Facebook page is filled with anti-Putin and anti-Trump posts, causing many to think the whole incident was a set-up to get Trump.

Despite various false reports from the media, Veselnitskaya is not a Russian government official and has no ties to the Kremlin, Duncanson said.

The American Mirror added:

The truth is Veselnitskaya is actually tied to Fusion GPS, the anti-Trump firm behind the “Trump/Russia dossier.” Her Facebook page is also filled with anti-Putin and anti-Trump posts going back to 2015 and possibly further.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

In December 2015, Veselnitskaya posted a picture of anti-Putin senator John McCain with Russian lawyer Mark Feygin, a man who says he wants to “get rid of Putin’s regime.”


Circa News noted:

“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.

Veselnitskaya is identified in court documents as a former Russian prosecutor and private lawyer in Moscow who had been representing the Russian businessman Denis Katsyv and his Prevezon Holdings, against a U.S. Department of Justice a civil asset forfeiture case. In one document, she described having trouble getting a visa from the U.S.

But there’s more.  According to Duncanson, Veselnitskaya promoted an anti-Putin book in April 2016 and posted a picture showing Putin holding a baby with Trump’s head photoshopped onto it, a common meme shared by liberals who call Trump, “Putin’s puppet.”

“She also posted multiple photos of anti-Trump rallies,” Duncanson said.


So is the whole issue with Veselnitskaya a set-up intended to entrap Trump?  Rush Limbaugh seemed to think so:

So what this means is that “Natasha” Veselnitskaya is among those on the left who believe that Putin colluded with Trump to secure the election for Trump and against Hillary. This is her way. I guess you could say, “Well, no, Rush. It doesn’t mean that. She simply put it up because she found it interesting.” No, no, no. When you look at all the other pictures on her Facebook page, they’re pictures of the anti-Trump rally in Chicago, the women’s rally, but this picture that you’re looking at here if you’re on the Dittocam, and you’ll see that RushLimbaugh.com on the website if you’re not a Dittocam user here, this is classic of the way the media and the left are attempting to illustrate that Trump didn’t legitimately win.

This is the woman who wanted to meet, did meet with Trump Jr. ostensibly to carry bad news about Hillary from the Russian government. Of course that’s not what she had. She wanted action on some piece of legislation that was important to her. I think the whole thing’s a setup. I think the whole thing was a misdirection play. But this picture makes it look like she is part of the opposition to Trump. Okay, fade it back to the host. I’ve not seen that particular picture, no, but I have seen other illustrations the left uses on Twitter and on Facebook, Instagram, to mock the idea that Trump didn’t legitimately win and that Putin is now pulling strings, is a puppet master, which is what they think.

A post at Zero Hedge also wondered if the meeting was a set-up for possible FISA wiretaps:

  • Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya who met with Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner is openly anti-Trump.
  • Mark Corallo, a spokesman for the president’s lawyer said that Veselnitskaya misrepresented who she was.
  • Veselnitskaya has made anti-Trump postings to her Facebook page, and posted a picture taken by someone else in John McCain’s office in 2015.
  • Rob Goldstone – the man who arranged the meeting – is associated with Fusion GPS, the firm which created the debunked ‘pissgate’ dossier.
  • Veselnitskaya also has ties to Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson, who helped lobby against the same case.
  • The meeting with Trump Jr. is suspected to be the basis for the FISA request to surveil (and unmask) the Trump team.

The post further noted:

Recall that the Dept. of Justice drew up the original FISA application to surveil the team, which was rejected outright by the court. The second application – written more narrowly, was denied in July. Finally – three weeks before the election on October 15th, the order was finally granted for three of Trump’s associates – ostensibly the three who were in the meeting with Natalia Veselnitskaya – Trump Jr., Trump advisor  Jared Kushner, and former campaign manager Paul Manafort.

And concluded:

Why would a Russian attorney who hates Donald Trump and has ties to the ‘pissgate’ dossier firm – Fusion GPS, agree to provide Trump Jr. with opposition research on Hillary Clinton unless it was a setup?

Good question.  But will the rabidly anti-Trump propagandists in the media take notice?  We’re not holding our breath.
