If This Former Soviet Spy Met With Donald Trump, Jr., It Probably Was a Set Up by Democrats

NBC News is reporting that a former Soviet counterintelligence officer joined Natalia Veselnitskaya in her meeting with Donald Trump, Jr. They are not naming the person.

By Erick Erickson

If this rings a bell, you might have read my piece yesterday. Senator Chuck Grassley, in a letter to the Department of Justice, noted that “Fusion GPS and Rinat Akhmetshin, among others, were involved in the pro-Russia campaign in 2016” while Fusion GPS was preparing the anti-Trump dossier.

Senator Grassley described Akhmetshin as “Russian immigrant to the U.S. who has admitted having been a “Soviet counterintelligence officer.” In fact, it has been reported that he worked for the GRU and allegedly specializes in “active measures campaigns,” i.e., subversive political influence operations often involving disinformation and propaganda.”

So we have Fusion GPS, a Democratic opposition research firm, working with a Russian company whose lawyer is Natalia Veselnitskaya. And we have this. And we also know it was the Obama Administration that allowed Veselnitskaya into the United States to meet with Trump, Jr.

This sounds more and more like a set up.

Keep in mind that this does not excuse Donald Trump, Jr.’s judgment in taking the meeting, but it does put it in perspective.
