Trump/Russia Active Measures

"Vox interviewed Journalist Craig Unger about his new book, House of Drumpf, House of Putin. In researching Drumpf's connections to Russia, Unger found about 1,300 real estate transactions Drumpf conducted with Russian mobsters. Unger explains there is a pattern in Drumpf's history where anonymous shell-companies that were fronts for criminal money-laundering operations bought properties, condos, or apartments from Drumpf, 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 Drumpf in Drumpf 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 Drumpf 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."
