The Moscow lawyer at the center of the Don Trump Jr. email controversy entered the U.S. under "extraordinary circumstances" and was granted special immigration parole by then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch, The Hill has reported.

Natalia Vaselnitskaya set up the meeting with Trump aides in June 2016 with an offer of dirt on Hillary Clinton they couldn't refuse. The meeting took place after an exchange of emails between Trump Jr. and British publicist Rob Goldstone that alluded to the "highly sensitive" nature of the information Vaselnitskaya claimed to have in her possession.

Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, President's Trump's son in-law and top aide, and Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort attended the meeting that ultimately produced nothing of value to the Trump campaign.

The Hill reports that Vaselnitskaya "had been turned down for a visa to enter the U.S. lawfully but then was granted special immigration parole by then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch for the limited purpose of helping a company owned by Russian businessman Denis Katsyv, her client, defend itself against a Justice Department asset forfeiture case in federal court in New York City."

Vaselnitskaya's role was also that of pro-Russian lobbyist, and she is seen in a video standing up in front of the House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on Russia policy. She was also present at a Newseum event in Washington, D.C., on alleged human rights violations by the Russian government that led to the adoption of the Magnitsky Act.

The Hill reports that Vaselnitskaya was cleared for entry into the U.S. under "extraordinary circumstances" by the DOJ and remained in the country months after her term expired in January 2016.

Further investigation by Trump lawyers revealed that Vaselnitskaya is also associated with Fusion GPS, the firm that was retained by Democratic operatives to develop "opposition research" on Donald Trump that would benefit the Clinton campaign.

The question is whether former President Barack Obama had knowledge of Vaselnitskaya and whether he instructed the DOJ to fast-track her entry into the country? And for what purpose?

Things just keep getting more interesting by the minute as Democrats continue to fall into the same trap that they set for the president.

Why do you think the Russian attorney was allowed into the U.S. under special circumstances? To what extent was the Hillary Clinton campaign involved? Let us know what you think in the comment section below.
