NYT: Trump chasing deals in Russia for three decades

Posted by | January 17, 2017 09:47 | Filed under: News Behaving Badly Politics Top Stories

Never mind the Trump lie: “I have no dealings with Russia.”

It was 2005, and Felix Sater, a Russian immigrant, was back in Moscow pursuing an ambitious plan to build a Trump tower on the site of an old pencil factory along the Moscow River that would offer hotel rooms, condominiums and commercial office space.

Letters of intent had been signed and square footage was being analyzed. “There was an opportunity to explore building Trump towers internationally,” said Mr. Sater, who worked for a New York-based development company that was a partner with Donald J. Trump on a variety of deals during that decade. “And Russia was one of those countries.”

The president-elect’s favorable comments about President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia and the conclusion of United States intelligence officials that Moscow acted to help Mr. Trump’s campaign have focused attention on Mr. Trump’s business interests in Russia. Asked about the issue at his news conference last week, Mr. Trump was emphatic on one point: “I have no dealings with Russia.” And he repeated, “I have no deals that could happen in Russia because we’ve stayed away.”

    Sounds like America’s security could be sold out for an opportunity for someone to expand their real estate holdings in a foreign country.

    The election was rigged by Russia, and Trump is Putin’s bitch.
    Why isn’t the Donald sitting in jail for treason? If a democrat pull the same crap, he’d be hung before anybody can say “make ‘murika great”.

    U.S. taxpayers are already paying $1 B+ to protect grifter Donnie’s soft targets in 30 countries. The fireworks begin after 12:01 PM Friday as Putin’s puppet is installed.
