Money Launderer in Chief - Part 2

I recommend you read the entire article referred to in the previous post. It's an eye opener if you haven't read about Trump's Russian mob ties before. And here's something I hadn't come across (or forgot) before:
Earlier this year, one week before National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was fired for failing to report meetings with Russian officials, Trump’s personal attorney reportedly hand-delivered to Flynn’s office a “back-channel plan” for lifting sanctions on Russia. The co-author of the plan, according to the Times: Felix Sater.

  New Republic
This puts a different light on the ongoing maybe-maybe not situation with Russian sanctions. No wonder Trump isn't able to simply remove them outright.

Who's Sater? He's a Russian mobster and convicted criminal. Trump has said he hardly knows the man and wouldn't be able to identify him if he saw him.

Here's a little help:

[E]ven after The New York Times revealed Sater’s criminal record in 2007, he continued to use office space provided by the Trump Organization. In 2010, he was even given an official Trump Organization business card that read: FELIX H. SATER, SENIOR ADVISOR TO DONALD TRUMP.


Without the Russian mafia, it is fair to say, Donald Trump would not be president of the United States.
Read the article.

...but hey, do what you will anyway.
