Obama’s Role in Donald Jr.’s “Scandal”

Former President Barack Obama’s Justice Department allowed Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya to enter the U.S. without a visa, enabling her to lobby President Trump’s campaign officials and others in Washington last year.

The department cleared the Kremlin-linked lawyer under “extraordinary circumstances,” though her reason for traveling halfway across the world is now being scrutinized.

Veselnitskaya was allowed into the U.S. through a legal loophole, allowing her to accompany a colleague who was testifying in a House committee hearing about Russian policy.

A new report by The Hill indicates how she used the U.S. immigration system to enter the country and engage in nonofficial business while stateside, including a private meeting with President Trump’s campaign.
