According to documents reviewed by The Daily Beast, Representative Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) was quite literally directed by Moscow to discredit supporters of the Magnitsky Act, the legislation that places sanctions on Russian officials responsible for the death of Russian attorney Sergei Magnitsky.
Rohrabacher, the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Europe, was reportedly planning to smear former investor and anti-Putin lobbyist Bill Browder (Magnitsky was his attorney) during a committee hearing using material supplied to him by the Russians including a "feature-length pro-Kremlin propaganda movie."
An email reviewed by The Daily Beast shows that before that June 14 hearing, Rohrabacher’s staff received pro-Kremlin briefings against Browder, once Russia’s biggest foreign investor, and his tax attorney Sergei Magnitsky from a lawyer who was working with [Natalia] Veselnitskaya.
Although House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Ed Royce (R-CA) had prohibited Rohrabacher from showing the Russian propaganda film in Congress, Rohrabacher’s Capitol Hill office still actively promoted a screening of the movie that was held at the Newseum in Washington, D.C., on June 13, 2016. Veselnitskaya was one of those handling the movie’s worldwide promotion.
The name Veselnitskaya may sound familiar because she also arranged the meeting with Donald Trump Jr, Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner at Trump Tower where the young Trump solicited dirt on Hillary Clinton.
I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure she's a spy.
No one should be under the impression that Rep. Rohrabacher was somehow deceived or tricked into doing this. He is a self-made Russian stooge who has openly fantasized about Putin's muscles.
