Trump/Russia Active Measures
Posted by Mary Catherine Dunphy (+2902) 4 years ago
"Vox interviewed Journalist Craig Unger about his new book, House of Trump, House of Putin. In researching Trump's connections to Russia, Unger found about 1,300 real estate transactions Trump conducted with Russian mobsters. Unger explains there is a pattern in Trump's history where anonymous shell-companies that were fronts for criminal money-laundering operations bought properties, condos, or apartments from Trump, paying in all cash. The following is a key quote:

"The very first episode that's been documented, to my knowledge, was in 1984 when David Bogatin — who is a Russian mobster, convicted gasoline bootlegger, and close ally of Semion Mogilevich, a major Russian mob boss — met with Trump in Trump Tower right after it opened. Bogatin came to that meeting prepared to spend $6 million, which is equivalent to about $15 million today. Bogatin bought five condos from Trump at that meeting. Those condos were later seized by the government, which claimed they were used to launder money for the Russian mob."

The same pattern is laid out in the documentary Active Measures. It's a good one - available on Hulu for $1.99."
