British tycoon to tell Senate Trump Jr Russia lawyer is linked to secretive group behind Steele Dossier
A British businessman says he will next week testify on Capitol Hill that researchers who helped produce the infamous Steele dossier, previously worked at the direction of the Russian lawyer who met Donald Trump Jr, and failed to declare they were doing so.
Fusion GPS was in the headlines earlier this year when it emerged its investigators, and a former British spy, Christopher Steele, had worked to produce a dossier of salacious, unverified claims about Donald Trump that suggested he had been “compromised” by Russian intelligence officials on a visit to Moscow in 2013. Mr Trump called the dossier “fake news”.
Bill Browder, the CEO and founder of Hermitage Capital Management, says he will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee that the company, which was founded by former journalists, previously worked under the direction of Natalia Veselnitskaya as part of a Russian-led lobbying effort in the US.
Radical Dem Worked For Russian Lawyer Who Met With Trump, Jr.
Radical left-wing icon former California Democratic Rep. Ron Dellums was a hired lobbyist for Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr. June 9, 2016, the Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned.
Dellums, who represented liberal San Francisco and Oakland, Calif., is a long-time darling of left-wing political activists. He served 13 terms in Congress as an African-American firebrand and proudly called himself a socialist. He retired in 1996.
The former congressman is one of several high-profile Democratic partisans who was on Veselnitskaya’s payroll, working to defeat a law that is the hated object of a personal vendetta waged by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

It's a critical moment for American democracy too. The courts and the judicial process must be seen to be respected by all sides.
Otherwise the already seriously damaged faith in the entire system will be destroyed.
It's so important that Trump and the alt-right stop the attacks and deflections and maintain faith in the legal system. Without the rule of law.... anarchy.

...George was a foreign policy advisor to trump. he met a russian professor that ends up getting him in touch with a Russian foreign affairs minister. Eventually this minister says he has dirt on Hillary and thousands of emails. George contacts senior campaign people, and they tell him great job. George has meetings with russians that are undisclosed, and tries to facilitate a meeting between trump officials and the Russians, which ultimately falls through.
Oh, and he is guilty of a crime, because he lied to Mueller about this.
This guy was trying to get dirt in Hillary from Russian officials, and was talking to other Trump officials who told him thats sounds great.
This to me is the greatest link i see currently to Trump working with urssia.
