Donald Trump claims Russian informant Natalia Veselnitskaya who was present at the Trump Tower meeting takes orders directly from President Vladimir Putin.
During a political rally in Michigan to boost his fragile ego, Trump had a public meltdown, ranting that Putin planted spy Veselnitskaya at the Trump Tower meeting with his son, Don Jr., Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner, to make him look bad.
Trump told the crowd of supporters that Veselnitskaya is only claiming to be an informant of the Russian government because Putin told her to get back at him for being tough on Russia. In other words, she takes orders directly from Putin. Ooopsie.
Trump tells Michigan rally that Natalia Veselnitskaya is only claiming she’s closely involved with the Russian govt because Putin told her to do so to get back at Trump for being so tough on Russia.
…i.e., he just said Veselnitskaya takes orders directly from Putin.

Late last week, NBC News blew up the House GOP claims of no collusion between Trump and the Russians, with a bombshell report that Veselnitskaya admitted to being a Russian informant.
