The photograph indicates Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, the legal advisor at the focal point of the most recent media assault on the Trump organization, in participation at a June 2016 Remote Undertakings Council hearing on Russia, situated behind Obama organization Represetative Michael McFaul:

Minutes after asking, “Is Don Jr. was just doing his friend a favor when meeting with Russian lawyer, why did he bring 2 top campaign officials with him? (sic)” in a tweet, McFaul was on the defensive, calling out “desperate” and “kooky” stories by the Gateway Pundit and WikiLeaks regarding his being photographed with Veselnitskaya in attendance.

But perhaps only the “woman in blue” knows the truth.
