Trump Jr., as his opening gambit,
first claimed that the meeting with attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya was“a program about the adoption of Russian children.”.
For illegally soliciting a thing of value from a foreign national, saying he could
not establish the value of the information being offered by Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya through a third party.
The value of the information must surpass a $2,000 threshold for a criminal charge or $25,000 for a felony charge-
Mueller concluded that Veselnitskaya ultimately did not deliver on her promise of providing damaging information.
Veselnitskaya told the newspaper that"nothing at all about the presidential campaign"
was discussed at the meeting, she had"never acted on behalf of the Russian government" and"never discussed any of these matters with any representative of the Russian government.".
