It has become impossible not to call bullshit on Donald Trump after he and his dirty henchmen categorically denied any contact with Russian officials in any way, shape, or form – when in reality Trump was involved in a business project with the Kremlin during the 2016 presidential campaign. Shocking? No. Trump would steal candy from babies and lie about it to your face while sucking on a lollypop.
It’s being reported by The Washington Post that Michael Cohen, chief counsel and a top executive from Trump’s real estate company, asked Dmitry Peskov, the Russian president’s press secretary, for help brokering a business deal with Vladimir Putin to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.
Cohen’s contact with the Russian government occurred during Trump’s campaign for the White House, and Cohen admits that he updated Trump on several occasions about progress on the Russian real estate deal. This directly contradicts every denial given by the White House about the campaign’s involvement with Russian officials.
“Cohen’s email marks the most direct outreach documented by a top Trump aide to a similarly senior member of Putin’s government,” according to The Washington Post.
The email exchange between Cohen and Peskov, “provides an example of a Trump business official directly seeking Kremlin assistance in advancing Trump’s business interests.”
Trump even went so far as to sign a non-binding letter of intent in 2015, according to a statement issued by Cohen.
Trump is like Putin’s piss-boy. He hovers around with a bucket waiting to serve his dark lord master for the prospect of some crumbs to be paid later. This revelation also proves Kellyanne Conway, VP Mike Pence, Mike Flynn, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Sean Spicer, Stephen Miller, Katrina Pierson, Carter Page, Paul Manafort, Corey Lewandowski, and all Trump’s surrogate attorneys are lying through their teeth to cover President Trump’s unlawful misdeeds, those of his sinister adult children, and for some, their own illegalities.
The New York Times reported about another Trump business associate, Felix Sater, and his emails with Michael Cohen to help broker the Moscow tower deal.
In one email dated Nov. 3, 2015, Sater writes, “Michael I arranged for Ivanka to sit in Putins private chair at his desk and office in the Kremlin. I will get Putin on this program and we will get Donald elected. We both know no one else knows how to pull this off without stupidity or greed getting in the way. I know how to play it and we will get this done. Buddy our boy can become President of the USA and we can engineer it. I will get all Putins team to buy in on this.”
I’m no lawyer, but that sure sounds damning. And Ivanka Trump can take her supposed swanky ideals and childish attempts at advocating for women’s rights and go piss up a tree. She is complicit with this joke of an administration. Ivanka and Kushner are now getting some of the Trump stink on them of being racists, bigots, liars, and abusers of human rights. The list grows daily.
Who here believes Ivanka simply took a whimsical vacation to Russia and just happened to visit the Kremlin, where she was allowed access to Putin’s office and got to sit in the Russian president’s chair. No my precious that access and privilege is not the normal tourist experience and a price must be paid.
Trump and his sons have been trying to build in Russia for decades with no success. Meanwhile all the other American luxury hotel chains, i.e. Ritz-Carlton, Hyatt Regency, Marriott, have locations in Russia going up like gangbusters. Trump’s sons have admitted previously that they get most of their money from Russians, yet they still have no juice with Putin.
The president refuses to say anything contradictory about Russia or its leaders. Even though it has been verified that Russia attacked the U.S. election system, funds Taliban efforts that fire on American troops, provides safe haven to N. Korea, not to mention Putin assassinates his business competitors, and murders journalists critical of his authoritarian regime.
Not one critical word has Trump uttered about Putin or Russia pitting their interests against American ideals.
Trump was so fond of picking on Crooked Hillary during the campaign. Who is looking crooked now? I don’t know what Putin has on Trump, but it must be good.
