The facts read like a B-grade spy novel.
In 2008, Donald Trump Jr. attended a real estate conference, where he stated that
Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets. We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.
As it turns out that may have been an understatement.
Human rights lawyer Scott Horton – whose work in the region goes back to defending Andrei Sakharov and other Soviet dissidents – has gone through a series of studies by the Financial Times to show how funds from Russian crime lords bailed Trump out after yet anther bankruptcy.
The conclusions are stark.
