Default Top Trump Organization executive asked Putin aide for help on business deal

Wonder if Houston wasn't under water if this would be grabbing the headlines?:...O well we can wait.

<A top executive from Donald Trump’s real estate company emailed Vladi*mir Putin’s personal spokesman during the U.S. presidential campaign last year to ask for help advancing a stalled Trump Tower development project in Moscow, according to documents submitted to Congress Monday.>

<Michael Cohen, a Trump attorney and executive vice president for the Trump Organization, sent the email in January 2016 to Dmitry Peskov, the Kremlin’s top press aide.>

<The email shows the Trump business official directly seeking Kremlin assistance in advancing Trump’s business interests, in the same months when Trump was distinguishing himself on the campaign trail with his warm rhetoric about Putin.>


<In a statement Cohen submitted to Congressional investigators, he said he wrote the email at the recommendation of Felix Sater, a Russian-American businessman who was serving as a broker on the deal.>

<The Washington Post reported on Sunday that Cohen had been in negotiations with Sater to attempt to build a Trump Tower in the Russian capital from September 2015 through the end of January 2016, as Trump was competing for the Republican nomination for president.>

<Cohen told Congressional investigators that the deal was envisioned as a licensing project, in which Trump would have been paid for the use of his name by a Moscow-based developer called I.C. Expert Investment Company Cohen said that Trump signed a letter of intent with the company on October 28, 2015, and began to solicit designs from architects and discuss financing.>

I do believe we've dealt with this. Businessmen negotiating business. The deal fell through in January. President Trump had nothing to do with it.

You have to understand that Trump is the head of his business, so in the minds of Liberals, if the guy who works in the mailroom opens a piece of mail that wasn't his, it the CEO's fault and they should go to jail...

Nah, it's just liberals who have gone through the haystack looking for the needle are now reduced to grovelling through the manure on the ground looking for something that sticks. They can't even make manure stick.

yet another soggy boot drops.

"Our boy can become president of the USA and we can engineer it,” Mr. Sater wrote in an email. “I will get all of Putins team to buy in on this, I will manage this process.”
The emails show that, from the earliest months of Mr. Trump’s campaign, some of his associates viewed close ties with Moscow as a political advantage. Those ties are now under investigation by the Justice Department and multiple congressional committees."

"American intelligence agencies have concluded that the Russian government interfered with the 2016 presidential election to try to help Mr. Trump. Investigators want to know whether anyone on Mr. Trump’s team was part of that process."
