Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya gave her own commentary on the case of Steel’s file
Do not think me paranoid, but I wrote about Jonathan Weiner, as a man working to destabilize the political system of the United States, as an active ideologist of the cold war 2.0 between our countries, in my testimony to the Senate in 2017, and in March 2018 I gave oral testimony to the representatives of the Intelligence Committee of Congress. Of course this had to do with Browder and the Magnitsky Act. Jonathan Weiner is an active member of Browder’s team.
Prior to private practice, Weiner worked for many years as an assistant to Senator John Kerry, then he worked in the State Department, in 1999 he began his lobbying activities, during the second term of President Obama he went back to the State Department, and in 2017 in view of power shift in the United States he again returned to lobbying and legal practice. Weiner brought Browder to J. Kerry. And because Kerry did not support Browder, the latter called him “Putin’s greyhound”. Then the two began to operate through Kyle Parker – an ambitious young aide to Senator Cardin who was also instrumental in “ramming through” the “right” decisions concerning Khodorkovsky in the Senate.
In April 2008 Weiner was hired by Browder to lobby the US State Department and the White House on the “Russian issues”.
Browder in his book calls him the ideologist of the sanctions against Russia on the history of political corruption in Russia in connection with the history of Magnitsky.
In the summer of 2017 Jonathan Weiner as Browder’s lawyer demanded Amazon online store to discontinue selling the book of Monegasque financier Alex Krainer called “THE KILLING OF WILLIAM BROWDER”.
Christopher Steele’s lawyers in the United States is Alston & Bird LLP a Washington law firm Weiner had worked for earlier for over 8 years. Christopher Steele hired this Washington firm in August 2017 to contest the service of subpoena in a case the state of Florida Case 0:17-cv-60426-UU in the action of Gubarev against BuzzFeed in connection with the publication of the Steel Dossier.
In September 2017, on behalf of Browder, Weiner filed a lawsuit in the court of Cyprus to prohibit the Prosecutor’s Office of Cyprus to fulfill Russia’s requests under MLAT in criminal cases.
This person became known to the public only after it became clear that he got access to the so-called “Steele Dossier” at least in October, 2016 (before he got surveillance warrant for K. Page). Then Weiner wrote an opinion piece justifying his part in this heinous plot.
But now we know that Winer’s actions involved in the distribution of the fake Steele dossier are more than Winer let on.
These people just got carried away with their playing. Perhaps Weiner is a man with a distorted sense of ideological patriotism. He can even firmly believe that what he is doing by throwing mud at people, spreading foul speculations in the offices of the State Department and among journalists, getting politicians play off against each other is right. The only problem is that people stop thinking about the consequences of their actions.
