Trump Was Pursuing Massive Real Estate Deal in Moscow During Campaign

18 posts in this topic

Note the name... Felix Sater. He was found guilty in stock fraud scheme and also has ties to known Russian organized crime figures. He avoided jail time by becoming an FBI informant. You may also remember him as the Trump crony famous for stabbing a guy in the face with the stem of a broken martini glass.

He's also cooperating with international authorities in their investigation into a far-ranging money laundering operation. That will certainly shed more light on his work to funnel Russian and Eastern European money into Trump properties.

Nevertheless, the details of the deal, which have not previously been disclosed, provide evidence that Trump’s business was actively pursuing significant commercial interests in Russia at the same time he was campaigning to be president — and in a position to determine U.S.-Russia relations. The new details from the emails, which are scheduled to be turned over to congressional investigators soon, also point to the likelihood of additional contacts between Russia-connected individuals and Trump associates during his presidential bid.

As the talks progressed, Trump voiced numerous supportive comments about Putin, setting himself apart from his Republican rivals for the nomination.

 

This Russia thing has more legs than a centipede.

This guy is guilty of all sort of crimes.  Has done nothing but take vacations since he got in office and his supporters are still calling him the greatest president ever.

Latest Washington Post Trump-Russia Bombshell Is Just A Warmup Act For The Avalanche

This story is just a warmup act. It’s part I of a multi-part series.

But it’s also partly because the Washington Post wouldn’t have wasted this story by dumping it out in the middle of a major hurricane aftermath unless it was just a teaser. We’ve seen this before.

This summer the New York Times released its story on the Donald Trump Jr meeting with Russia in piecemeal fashion. It set things up so the Trump camp would issue partial denials each time that were subsequently disproven by the next segment of the story. And it’s a safe bet that the WaPo is using the same rope-a-dope with this Trump Tower Moscow story. Now watch the rest of it fall into place...

Turns out a Trump Organization Vice President reached out to the Kremlin for help with the project and that Donald Trump was personally briefed on the matter while a candidate. No wonder he sang such praise for Putin.

"Ethics expert Norman Eisen warns: “Now we have a second group of emails from those in Trump’s orbit suggesting high-level outreach to Russia in and around the election season. Like the now-famous email exchange with Don Jr. about Russia’s ‘support for Mr. Trump,’ these new documents promising that ‘Putin’s team’ will ‘buy in’ on Trump raise the question of what the president knew of all this and when he knew it.” He tells me, “The emails add important additional evidence to the special counsel’s investigation, both as to possible collusion and as to obstruction of justice, inasmuch as they deepen the suspicion of a possible malign Trump motive for attempting to block the Russia investigation.”

Now, Cohen insists to The Post that the Trump Tower Moscow proposal was “not related in any way to Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign.” But of course, we don’t know that and neither does he. Mueller, however, will be looking for evidence, as Eisen puts it, “that Trump or his agents actually agreed to better treatment for Putin and Russia in exchange for a present or future Trump Tower Moscow.” That would, he says, “go beyond collusion to outright corruption.” But even without a smoking gun showing a quid pro quo, the extent to which Trump was compromised — and may remain so — should concern Congress and the voters.

...Republicans have refused to address this issue in any serious way, allowing the conflicts to fester and Trump’s finances to remain opaque. Congress has the power to legislate — to disallow emoluments, require divestiture of businesses, bar relatives (with their own holdings) from serving in government and mandate disclosure of tax returns. In failing to take any action, Republicans are complicit in Trump’s debasement of the presidency and of our democracy."

The entire GOP sold what was left of their legitimacy and honor for a cheap carnival barker.  And a for a man that has no loyalty or allegiance to the party.

Ironically I think there are several other GOP candidates that would have beaten Hillary.  They did not need Trump.  He needed them.
