Man Linked To Infamous Trump Tower Meeting Plummets To Death In Copter Crash
Albertovich Karapetyan was the person allegedly behind the lawyer from the now-infamous Trump Tower Meeting, Natalia Veselnitskaya, and her global efforts to lobby for an overturn of anti-corruption acts such as the U.S. Magnitsky Act.
Earlier this week, Karapetyan passed away during what's being called an unauthorized helicopter flight which ended his life near the village of Vonyshevo, northeast of Moscow.
A letter sent on behalf of Russia's government to a U.S. court in 2014 refusing assistance into an investigation concerning Magnitsky's death was signed by Karapetyan, The Daily Beast reported, and was drafted reportedly with aid from Veselnitskaya.
Veselnitskaya would go on two years later to be involved in a meeting with Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort at Trump Tower under the presumption of Veselnitskaya presenting damaging information on Hillary Clinton, President Trump's 2016 opponent, to the Trump campaign.
Trump Jr. has maintained publicly that the meeting resulted in the knowledge that Veselnitskaya had no damaging information to offer, calling it a "waste of time."
Foreign agents and the DNC have always given me pause when things like this happen. I can't help but wonder... what about you? Did he know something? I'm speculating... call me paranoid...
According to NewsMax:
Veselnitskaya helped Karapetyan draft a document that was sent along with a letter from the Russian government informing the U.S. that it would not help in a civil case related to the death of Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky. A Swiss court uncovered their connection after finding that a former leading investigator who had engaged in “unauthorized clandestine behavior” had met with Karapetyan in Zurich and Geneva, and that Karapetyan had invited the investigator to Moscow for a meeting with Veselnitskaya in a luxury hotel.
The meeting has come under intense scrutiny in special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation, which is seeking currently what on Donald Trump calls a witch hunt, to determine if members of then-candidate Trump's campaign knowingly colluded with Russia to interfere in the 2016 election.
