1/I, like McCabe, don't believe in coincidences either & one of the great untold stories is how McCabe's vast experience investigating the Russian Mafia repeatedly led him back to Trump Tower. @batchelorshow @FiringLineShow
2/As I write in #HouseofTrump, in Feb. 2013, two Trump reps allegedly attended a party given by Semion #Mogilevich at Ukraine Hotel in Moscow to celebrate bday of top mobster Sergei Mikhailov. Also, in attendance was Emin Agalarov.
3/Aras Agalarov has denied ties to Mafia, but his son Emin was, in effect, playing the same role Johnny Fontane had in The Godfather, entertaining the Mafia. Also, after Emin married the daughter of corrupt Azerbaijani president, they won massive lucrative contracts.
4/ Emin's father, Aras Agalarov, of course, was politically connected himself and by this time had a relationship w Vladimir Putin as well as alleged ties to Russian Mafia.
5/ Then in April 2013, just 2 months after Mikhailov's birthday bash, police busted an apt on 63rd floor of Trump Tower and rounded up suspects in gambling rings including Alimzhan Tokhtakhounov aka Taiwanchik(pictured below), longtime associate of Mikhailov, Mogilevich, etc.
6/ Several months later, in November, Trump staged the Miss Universe Pageant in Moscow with the Agalarovs' sponsorship amid ongoing talks re Trump Tower Moscow. This was the visit during which sex video kompromat allegedly took place.
7/ A surprising presence on the red carpet at the event was none other than Taiwanchik. Still on the lam from gambling bust earlier that year, he was being treated as a VIP, but, at the same time, was being investigated by FBI who had hired none other than Christopher Steele.
8/ As I show in #HouseofTrump, this is just the tip of the iceberg. At least 13 people w Russian Mafia ties have owned, lived in, or run criminal activities out of Trump buildings. The Russian Mafia has used Trump properties to launder vast amts of money.
9/ And if I have all this in my book (and more), you can be sure Peter McCabe and Robert Mueller know much, much more.
