For example, the E-Mails show that Veselnitskaya was mixed up in the Russian government, to extract the financial information, which was from the former firm of Bill Browder, the American-born British businessman, a longtime critic of the Kremlin.

Oct. 31, 2017, E-Mail Veselnitskaya office shows prepares a draft of the Russian Deputy Prosecutor General Mikhail Alexandrov sworn statement to the Cypriot authorities. “This is necessary until morning,” wrote a child.

Two weeks later, a finalized version of the same document was sent by a Russian diplomatic staff to a Cypriot counterpart, the Dossier-Center-show files.

Browder, of the said often in conflict with Veselnitskaya in and out of the court, this reinforces the idea that she was involved with the Russian officialdom.

“If your office is the preparation of answers for the Russian-Cypriot cooperation in law enforcement, in my opinion, shows effectively that you claimed to be an agent of the Russian government and not an independent Prosecutor,” he said in a telephone interview.

In a written statement, the Russian Embassy in Cyprus, called the AP ‘ s question as a “provocation” and said it had “no idea who Nataliya Veselnitskaya and what you send or not send to the Cypriot officials.”

Alexandrov, reached at the General Prosecutor’s office refused to speak to the AP.

Ranchenkov, a senior interior Ministry to investigate the official formerly known for his role in the Russian punk band Pussy.

The E-Mails also show how Veselnitskaya trying to expand their influence on the United States, where she worked, to the overthrow of the Magnitsky Act”, a law that sanctions was championed by Browder after his lawyer Sergei Magnitsky died under suspicious circumstances in a Russian prison.

Moscow reacted to the sanctions with a ban on US adoptions of Russian orphans. This prompted lobbyists to court, groups such as families for Russian and Ukrainian Adoption, Including Neighboring countries, or FRUA, a children’s charity that supports families adopting children from former Eastern bloc Nations.

Jan Wondra, FRUA, Chairman, said that at a meeting in Washington on 8. June 2016 with a group of people that included Rinat Akhmetshin, a Russian-American lobbyist, to tilt the work with Veselnitskaya the sanctions.

The group told her, it was proof to spread that the Magnitsky act was driven by false claims, said Browder, Wondra. He promised that the revelation could lead to the ban of the overthrow of the Russian adoption.

Wondra told the AP that she was suspicious and feared that the lobbyists wanted to FRUA confirmation for their own purposes.

“My antennas were. I saw this as an attempt to create public pressure on the Congress to resolve that all or part of the Magnitsky act,” she said, and stressed that they spoke only for themselves, their organization. “The conclusion I drew was that FRUA to attend, you should. And we did not know it.”

Akhmetshin, who would join Veselnitskaya in Trump Tower meeting the next day, declined to comment.

The E-Mails obtained by AP leave open some questions.

In particular, the Dossier, the centre of the investigation was almost no news about the Trump Tower to meet. The group said it has only a few messages dealing with the media that the queries in the session was presented to the public in mid-2017.

There is no mention either of the Russian hack-and-leak operation began, the rattling of the Democrats, immediately after Veselnitskaya visit.
