Days after she meets with Don Jr, Russian attorney is pictured with Obama admin ambassador - Setup?
The Russian attorney at the center of the hyped-up scandal with Donald Trump Jr. was pictured seated behind an Obama administration ambassador mere days after she met with the son of the president.
The lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, was pictured right behind former ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul, during a Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on Russia five days after she met with the president's son, discovered by a CNN reporter.
CNN reporter Michael Weiss tweeted the picture on Tuesday, but he incorrectly dated the photo June 14, 2014 ( it is CNN, after all).
According to the Washington Post the photo was snapped on June 14, 2016, five days after Veselnitskaya met with Trump Jr. on June 9, 2016.
You can see Veselnitskaya sitting behind McFaul in the video of the hearing.
McFaul responded to the photo in a series of tweets.
That's an interesting defense.
He responded to Wikileaks tweeting the photo by asking it what conspiracy they were attempting to push.
That's a ton of defense for someone who did nothing to be concerned about.
