Report: Obama Allowed Russian Lawyer Who Met With Don Jr Into US Under 'Extraordinary Circumstances'
by Anna Giaritelli, The Washington Examioner
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.
