This is related to Pizzagate because of the Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya's organization, called the HUMAN RIGHTS ACCOUNTABILITY GLOBAL INITIATIVE FOUNDATION, which she founded allegedly to restart Russian adoptions in the U.S. after being baned by the law which Putin signed n December, 2012, called the Dima Yakovlev Law (named after a Russian orphan who died after being left in a locked car for several hours by his adopted father in Virginia).
I've posted several threads over the last week about how the mysterious Natalia Veselnitskaya was an expert on the William Browder case. A Buzzfeed article, dated June 15, 2016, quotes Natalia saying she worked extensively on the Browder case and filed a report to the U.S. Congress on how William Browder deceived the U.S. Congress in the evidence he presented in 2012 for the passage of the Magnitsky Act:
“The representatives of one of US House subcommittees attended the screening last night, and told me that if I have something to say, I could file a report as a Russian lawyer,” Veselnitskaya said on Tuesday, adding that she has spent some two years working with the documents related to Browder. “I filed a written report today. I am qualified to talk about it as a lawyer, and I am stating that I know the facts that can help the Congress to figure out this complicated story.”
Apparently, Natalia's knowledge of the Browder case is also linked to Hillary Clinton's dealings with corrupt Russian officials. Could William Browder have provided guidance or counseling to Hillary from his own vast experience defrauding the Russian govt? Was this the information Natalia was bringing to Donald Trump, Jr?
Natalia's NGO, HRAGIF, which was allegedly set up as a lobbying organization for the restarting of Russian adoptions, provided a useful cover both for her meeting with Donald, Jr., and for her activities in Washington afterwards. Natalia and several allies worked to spread an alternate explanation of William Browder's dealings with the Russian government and organized a screening of an anti-Magnitsky Act documentary in Washington.
Donald Jr could point to her segue during the meeting to Russian adoptions as the reason why the meeting was inconsequential and nonproductive. After the meeting, Natalia could go to Washington and use her NGO as a way to wheedle lawmakers into making changes to the Magnitsky Act. In the words of Daily Beast reporter Michael Wyss who was on to Natalia's act last May, as he reports in an article entitled "Putin's Dirty Game in the U.S.Congress":
"disadvantaged Russian children are being dangled as bait, with a wink-and-a-nudge promise to have the Russian law (Magnitsky Act) rescinded if the American law is taken off the books.
Kyle Parker, who has recently been outed in the State Dept. hacked emails as a correspondent with William Browder, tweeted confirmation of this opinion yesterday:
Putin tactic of holding #Russia's most vulnerable kids hostage was used more than once--in this case, successfully.
However, Natalia's scheme to use restarting of the "popular" Russian adoption program fell flat early on. Unnamed sources in a The Hill article scornfully described Natalia's lobbying efforts in Washington last year:
“Don’t let anyone tell you this was a sophisticated lobbying effort. It was the least professional campaign I’ve ever seen. If she’s the cream of the Moscow intelligence community then we have nothing to worry about.”
In other words, the liberal elite in Washington weren't fooled by Natalia and were making careful notes about her activities, esp. about the screening of the anti-Magnitsky Act film. Their suspicions of Natalia and her allies, lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin, and the Russian filmmaker, Andrei Nekrasov, are the basis of a highly detailed complaint made by Senator Grassley that her NGO was a clever front to disguise her real motive---the repeal of the Magnitsky Act and the de-railing of the Global Magnitsky Act. So convinced is the Browder/Grassley
coalition that it was a false cover to seek support for undermining the Magnitsky Act that they are seeking criminal charges against Natalia's associates.
Further evidence has come out that, contrary to popular belief by Trump supporters, Natalia's alleged "anti-Trump" Facebook posts are actually sharply worded criticisms of the Women's March and anti-Trump supporters. One of her Facebook post also celebrates Neil Gorsuch's SCOTUS nomination----which doesn't jive with an anti-Trump/Deep State shill profile at all.
Kyle Parker, who is mentioned above, tweeted four days ago that a photo he took last year sparked the current Russia collusion conspiracy theory and links to a Buzzfeed article entitled "How A False Conspiracy Theory About The Russian Lawyer Who Met With Don Jr. Spread To Trump" wherein claims that she posted anti-Trump Facebook tweets are debunked. What Natalia actually said about the Women's March:
"It's all about abortions, homosexuality, illegal immigration and two presidents," she wrote in Russian. "Whatever the order is, but for those who don't understand — that's what's called 'human rights.'"
CONCLUSION: In light of recent articles and further information, I'm going to stand with my hunch 8 days ago that Natalia is not a Deep State/Soros operative. It's pretty well established now that she used her foundation to work for a pro-Russian agenda (overturning the Magnitsky Act) and may have intended to use her pro-Russian adoption foundation as a way to lure possible pedophiles and traffickers into a trap, but it was detected early on by William Browder's team as a false front. Can't prove this entirely yet, but further developments will no doubt be unfolding that could potentially shed more light on that aspect.
N.B. I'm not saying Trump hired Natalia or was working with her in any way. Not saying any crimes were committed by anyone (except possibly William Browder while he was in Russia!) Just pointing out that Natalia's agenda seems to align with Trump's and that she wasn't actively working against him as many Trump-supporting people claim. No evidence of that at all.
