She's the Russian lawyer who attended a pivotal 2016 meeting at Trump Tower with President Donald Trump's son and top campaign staff, and now Nataliya Veselnitskaya has been indicted in a separate case: charged by federal prosecutors with obstruction of justice.
In an indictment unsealed Tuesday, the U.S. attorney's office in Manhattan said Veselnitskaya filed an "intentionally misleading" document in a case involving money laundering and tax fraud.
The 43-year-old lawyer had represented a Russian-controlled company - Prevezon Holdings - accused of laundering money from a $230 million tax fraud by snapping up New York estate.
The case was settled in 2017 with the company agreeing to pay $6 million to the U.S. government.
Veselnitskaya shot to notoriety last year on news of the June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower, attended by Donald Trump Jr., Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, and then senior campaign aide Paul Manafort.
That meeting is now part of a broad probe of Russian meddling under special counsel Robert Mueller.
The Washington Post reported President Trump helped draft a cover story for the Trump Tower meeting, which Trump Jr. later admitted he attended after being promised damaging information on Trump's Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.
Veselnitskaya has long denied being a representative of the Russian government, but Tuesday's indictment alleges her legal work put her in close contact with senior Russia officials over several years.
Trump has denied any collusion with Russia to win the 2016 race, and has repeatedly blasted Mueller's Russia probe as a witch hunt.
