NBC News said Natalia Veselnitskaya told the news outlet that she spoke with a woman whom she thought was Trump as she was leaving Trump Tower.

Veselnitskaya was not completely sure of the identity of the woman, NBC News noted, but another source confirmed that the woman Veselnitskaya spoke to was the president’s elder daughter.

Sources told NBC that the special counsel’s investigators are largely interested in why Trump helped draft a misleading statement regarding the meeting one year later. The investigators, according to the news outlet’s sources, are not as concerned with the meeting itself.
