Russian lawyer who met with Trump campaign admits to being Kremlin informant

The emails paint the much-talked-about lawyer as a liar and informant, as she seems to have helped the Russian government cover up a civil fraud case between the U.S. Justice Department and Denis P. Katsyv, a well-connected Russian businessman.
The screening, at Washington's Newseum, happened on June 13, 2016, four days after Veselnitskaya attended a meeting at Trump Tower with Donald Trump Jr., the president's eldest son, and other officials from Trump's election campaign.
Veselnitskaya told the Senate Judiciary Committee in November that she worked exclusively as a private lawyer and said her ties to the Russian government and Chaika were only in a professional capacity. "Since 2013, I have been actively communicating with the office of the Russian prosecutor general".
"I am a lawyer, and I am an informant", she says in the NBC interview set to air Friday. Veselnitskaya admitted to being hacked and told Russian news agency Interfax that people are trying to discredit her, and that she will be reporting the hack to Russian authorities.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe of ties between the Russian government and the Trump campaign has been investigating the 2016 meeting, which emails show was scheduled by the Trump camp in hopes of obtaining damaging information on Hillary Clinton.
The emails show Veselnitskaya worked closely with a top official in Russia's prosecutor general's office to fend off a USA fraud case against one of her clients in 2014.
Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the intelligence panel, told CNN's Jim Sciutto on Friday that Veselnitskaya reached out to the Trump family after the election with a request to follow up on efforts to repeal the Magnitsky Act, which was enacted in 2012.
Dossier is an arm of the exiled tycoon and Kremlin critic Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the onetime oil billionaire who spent a decade in prison on fraud and tax-evasion convictions that were widely seen as retaliation for his political ambitions and opposition to Putin.
The relationship between Veselnitskaya and Chaika's office also backs up a June 2016 email to Trump Jr. that claimed the "crown prosecutor of Russia" wanted to get information about Clinton to Trump's campaign. Veselnitskaya was meeting with Donald Trump Jr.
The president has reluctantly agreed with their assessment, but has called any talk of coordination between his campaign and the Kremlin "nonsense". Last year, when asked point blank by NBC if she had any connections to the Russian government or had previously worked for the Kremlin, Veselnitskaya replied, "No".
