Russia demanded the U.S. to explain the charges against a Russian lawyer who was present at a Trump Tower meeting in June 2016, as Reuters reported.

“Natalia Veselnitskaya, who represented Russian defendants in a money laundering case settled in 2017, has been charged with obstructing justice in that case for submitting a declaration that she falsely represented came from the Russian government independently,” American prosecutors said.

As it was reported, Natalia Veselnitskaya, a Russian lawyer, had previously “secretly schemed” with a Russian official, who was offering dirt on Hilary Clinton, as the U.S. authorities have alleged.

The criminal indictment says that she worked on the perjury in 2014 along with the office of Yuriy Chaika, Russia’s Prosecutor General. Veselnitskaya was charged with obstruction of justice.
