The Senate Intelligence Committee recently requested information about Donald Trump and his top aides from the Treasury Department that imposed a $10 million civil penalty on Trump’s Taj Mahal casino in 2015 for multiple violations of anti-money laundering laws. The committee wants to find out if any information the Treasury gathered is relevant to its Russia investigation, including evidence that may include money laundering, according to a committee aide who spoke anonymously.
Investigative Journalist Grant Stern points out that new details from the Senate’s Trump Russia investigation in the last 48 hours since FBI Director James Comey was fired, confirm the significant of a time period when convicted felon/Russian mobster Felix Sater worked for Donald J. Trump, who Trump claims he doesn’t know.
“If he [Sater] were sitting in the room right now, I really wouldn’t know what he looked like,” Trump testified in a video deposition for a civil lawsuit two years ago.
Scott Dworkin, Senior Advisor with the Democratic Coalition, discovered a Russian language interview with Felix Sater, which was published in November, 2016, that explains the relationship between Trump and Sater. Donald Trump claims he doesn’t know the guy, but as you are about to learn, that is not true. In fact, Sater was actively involved in Trump’s presidential campaign, according to Sater.
Grant Stern points out, Felix Sater told the Moscow media that he met with Trump’s campaign before the election, and revealed intimate details about his relationship with the man who Donald Trump swears he doesn’t know.
Felix Sater’s admitted contact with the Trump campaign during the election culminated in an incident where he carried an abortive secret “peace plan” between Russia and the United States over Ukraine that dovetailed with Donald Trump Jr.’s paid trip to speak a Putin-supported, Paris “peace conference” with a Syrian group.
In the snob.ru interview, Sater tells the story of meeting Donald Trump and his ten years of regular contact with him — sometimes as much as twice a day.
The interview also reveals that Sater “openly moonlighted in the Trump Organization as US secret agent for the FBI and CIA, after he was convicted racketeering with the New York mafia in 1998 — which took a Supreme Court ruling to reveal”, Stern reports.
However, Trump claims he wouldn’t know the guy “if he were sitting in the room right now”. Oh, Really, Trump?
Here’s Sater’s business card:
In short, Felix Sater claims that Trump knew about his secret agent activities with the FBI and CIA, and he also claims to have had regular contact with the Trump campaign last year.
