Default Trumpís mob-linked ex-associate gives $5,400 to campaign

A Russian-born, mafia-linked businessman whose ties to both Donald Trump and loyalists of Russian President Vladimir Putin have sparked scrutiny, visited Trump Tower last month for undisclosed business, he told POLITICO.

The businessman, Felix Sater, also donated the maximum allowable contribution to Trumpís presidential campaign, according to the campaignís most recent FEC filing.

Sater, whose firm co-developed a major Trump project in New York and who was later hired by Trump to drum up business in the former USSR, has said that he closely associated with Trump and his family, while Trump has suggested he wouldnít even recognize Sater.

Sater told POLITICO that he has not seen the candidate recently and that the purpose of his visit to Trump Tower last month is ďconfidential.Ē Sater declined to say whether heís had recent contact with the Trump Organization or Trumpís children. ďI donít see the relevance of that,Ē he said.

Sater gave the campaign $5,520 in three donations in July, according to the campaignís August FEC filing. Because the maximum allowed individual contribution is $5400, the campaign refunded the $120 difference.

Saterís business relationship with Trump has been the subject of sworn testimony by both men and has come under scrutiny because of Saterís past associations and the Trump campaignís unusual stances on Russia. Sater was convicted for stabbing a man in a bar fight in the early '90s, and pleaded guilty to racketeering in 1998 for his role in a mob-orchestrated stock fraud, according to The Washington Post. His racketeering sentence was reduced for cooperating with American intelligence officials on undisclosed matters related to national security.

I love it...

When anyone mentioned "Bernadine Dorn" or "Bill Ayers" in a conversation about Obama, the Left ran to nearest microphones and yelled "How DARE you attempt guilt-by-association!!!!!"...

Jump ahead to 2016...It's the Democrat platform-du-jour...

Hey everybody!!!...Did you hear that this second cousin, twice-removed of a guy who was once seen wearing a Trump tie jaywalked?!?!?!...Trump is a MONSTERRRRRRRR!!!!...

Remember folks..."Undisclosed business" with the Secretary of State, on your taxdollar, is NOT your business...But a private citizen?...We gotta get to the bottom of it!!!!!!!!...

So Trump, a businessman, met with Sater, also a businessman, and Sater contributed a total of $5400 to a political campaign. All perfectly legal.

Meanwhile Clinton, a politician, meets with dozens of contributors to her "charity" while SOS. After said contributors paid hundreds of thousands in "speaking fees" directly to the Clinton's.

Now both want to lead the country. I'm going with the little guy.

Yes the billionaire landlord is the little guy because dozens of people give to Clinton Foundation.

Also quotes over charity, as if it isn't somehow lolololol.
