UPDATE: adding some add'l research here in light of news "King of Diamonds" Lev Leviev is currently wanted for questioning.

Recall the primary source for Trump's Cyprus bid reported the "consortium" hired an ex-Finance Minister to lobby Cyprus gov't.
/PS
While researching Trump's 2015/16 Cyprus casino bid, I tried to confirm the identify of the ex-Finance Minister. Unfortunately, I didn't get anywhere - but I learned some interesting things about a few of these ex-officials and their connections to key oligarchs.
/PS1
One such ex-Cyprus Finance Minister is Christakis (Takis) Klerides, who as recently as this Oct 22, 2015 article still sat as a director on the board for Lev Leviev's real estate firm AFI Development.

Christakis Klerides lives in UK and is senior partner at KPMG - which also happens to be the Financial Auditor that Leviev's AFI Development uses.

How convenient!

Would be great to know if Klerides was the ex-Finance Minister hired by Trump's "Goldenlady Consortium".
/PS3
UPDATE: Oops, never linked this thread re the possible involvement of Sheldon Adelson, George Papadopolous & a Greek Unregistered Foreign Agent working at @StateDept in Trump's 2015/16 Cyprus casino bid 👇
Cc @brazencapital @mopeng @MsMariaT @ProPublica
Rev Karloutsos' son is a businessman who Sheldon Adelson paid to lobby the Greek & Cyprus Gov't for a casino law. Then in 2017, Reince Priebus recommended him for a kush job at @StateDept where he's still acting as a foreign agent. @CREWcrew @BrennanCenter
PS1/ The Director of the Cyprus LLC "Goldenlady Consortium" that Trump was allegedly a partner of in 2015/16 - French National David Rouxel. See here, this appears to be the guy h/t @mopeng @brazencapital 🙌
PS2/ Here's more on Goldenlady Consortium Director from @brazencapital -- haven't pieced together yet, but Adelson was an online gambling lobbier in NJ & Trump's Partner Navegante (NV) was caught bribing officials in NY.
PS3/ Here's a thread w/ a 2015 Moscow Tower timeline starting Apr '15. The 2 timelines overlap. My theory would be that Oct '15 LOI & this Dec '15 casino bid where a way to move money through Cyprus. Especially since Panama Hotel fired Trump that July.
PS4/ Look when Trump SECRETLY filed his Panama Hotel lawsuit for $75M in the Paris-based International Chamber of Commerce of all places...November 2015.

Trump could move money from Cyprus to France (i.e. David Rouxel or a law firm) w/o suspicion. dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3…
PS5/ And not to get too far in the weeds, but the guy who ended up buying Trump's Panama Hotel was a Cypriot investor & former army officer w/ business out of Miami Beach. This article is from @KevinGHall, so definitely worth the read. miamiherald.com/news/nation-wo…
PS6/ In Oct-Dec '15 (same time as LOI/casino bid), Cohen & Sater were involved in suspicious transactions:
1. Cohen applied for Stormy Daniels line of credit
2. Cohen lent UAE-linked FRENCH NATIONAL $3.8M for apt
3. Sater brokered a NYC real estate deal
PS7/ Here is the article referenced above re the Dec 2015 NYC real estate deal brokered buy Felix Sater - from @WendySiegelman ✌️
PS8/ Re news Manafort gave Kilimnik polling data for $$$$ & it was meant for Serhiy Lyovochkin - his Inter Media Group is registered in Cyprus. Manafort's notes from June 2016 meeting 👇cc @brazencapital @WendySiegelman @patrick @MsMariaT @LincolnsBible
PS9/ The other oligarch Manafort wanted money from, Rinat Akhmetov 👇 - I'm about to link this shit back to 2015 Moscow Tower Project 👆!

@ThomasS4217 @brazencapital @mopeng @arapaho415 @RighteousBabe4 @MsMariaT @SpicyFiles @SaysDana
PS10/ John Fotiadis, the Trump architect Ivanka was working w/ on the Moscow Tower Project beginning ~Oct 2015 👆His other major client is Rinat Akhmetov. The deal was a way to move money through Cyprus.
Sept: DNC Hacking
Oct: Moscow LOI
Dec: Cyprus LLC

Feb: Manafort data to Kilimnik
PS12/ Sometimes I have to be hit over the head w/ it! Reince Prebius=RNC. I mentioned 👆 Prebius recommended Greek foreign agent Alex Karloutsos to @StateDept. He lobbied for Adelson to get Cyprus casino that Trump bid on *DEC 2015*! 👇 h/t @LincolnsBible
PS13/ The big thing in Dec 2015 was Adelson would not support Trump. Then they had a meeting in NYC shortly after Cyprus LLC Goldenlady Consortium was formed. What's weird is Adelson had lobbied Cyprus for 4 years, but then didn't bid. Trump did. businessinsider.com/donald-trump-m…
PS14/ This @NYMag archive USED TO BE an article from Nov '15 about Trump courting big donors over Summer/Fall '15 - Adelson, Singer & Kochs. This as he claimed that he would only self-fund his campaign (he never did). Prebius was a go-between. web.archive.org/web/2018111917…
PS15/ The primary source I used for the 2015 Trump Cyprus Casino bid brought down their entire website....so that's weird. Screenshots of article are in the thread. 👀 @brazencapital @mopeng @arapaho415 @ThomasS4217 @knowledgevendor @RighteousBabe4 @Stephaniefishm4 @MsMariaT
PS16/
An ex-CIA "Senior Executive Clandestine Service Officer" was part of the investigative team working on this Trump Cyprus Casino bid report in March 2016 for business intelligence company Global Sources...? WHAT.
PS17/ Many ex-CIA on Global Sources board - they reported Trump's Cyprus Casino bid in Mar '16! Cyprus/Greek intel, Malta ex-Foreign Minister on board. This means CIA knew about the bid! When did Misfud contact Papadopoulos? @brazencapital @mopeng @MsMariaT @gregolear @grantstern
