No surprise Oleg #Deripaska didn't give up actual control of his companies to evade sanctions. He placed 3.4% of his shares in a company owned by his 2 children. Plenty of money flowed through this lobbying efforts. How much landed up in the pockets of #GOP Senators and Mnuchin?
#Deripaska's kids get 3.4% in a trust controlled by the oligarch, his New Jersey lawyer Ogier got another portion in a trust and the remainder of the shares went back to VTB - the Putin-aligned state bank which bankrolls Deripaska. reut.rs/2sUJsOG . @traciemac_Bmore
In short, Russian oligarch Oleg #Deripaska has so much control over the executive branch and the #GOP, he can easily overturn laws he doesn't like - even ones designed to punish him for major crimes. That's how serious this situation really is. Russia runs U.S. @NarativLive
We told you a few weeks ago on @NarativLive that #Deripaska was the key figure of the central crime of TrumpRussia and sanctions relief for his companies is evidence of a quid pro quo. @traciemac_Bmore and I have a NEW exclusive on this on #NarativLive soon. #TrumpRussia
