🌀Sater4🌀

The judge gave Mr. Sater no prison time in part based on the letter, but kept the sentence confidential after prosecutors asserted that the information would jeopardize ongoing investigations.

🔑ONGOING INVESTIGATIONS!!

Savor the implications ... read on:
🌀Sater5🌀

Trump, Felix Sater, and the FBI

Sater really should be understood as a second Whitey Bulger, although one who worked very closely with the now president of the United States, as well as for the most powerful and dangerous crime boss in the world—Semion Mogilevich.
🌀Sater6🌀

Connecting the dots between Trump and the Russian mafia.

There are decades of connections between Trump and organized crime, including his mentoring by the venomous, mobbed-up Roy Cohn & his father.

Picture a series of three concentric circles:
🌀Sater6🌀

The Kremlin at the center, surrounded by oligarchs of varying degrees of legal legitimacy, & on the periphery, organized criminal gangs.

In 1979, Trump arranged with a Genovese Mob-controlled union to supply illegal Polish construction workers at far below union pay.
🌀Sater7🌀

As the RU mobs gradually muscled out the Italian gangs, it is not difficult to see young DJT going with the flow.

Trump’s SoHo Project, the Mob, & Russian Intel

Tamir Sapir was one of Trump’s shady business partners in the latter’s failed SoHo real estate project
🌀Sater8🌀

Tevfik Arif controlled Bayrock in the 2000s, a property developer living in the Trump Tower,

In 2006, Bayrock and the Trump Organization announced a deal to build Trump SoHo.

The building would be developed and built by Bayrock in partnership with the Sapir.
🌀Sater9🌀

Sater, Trump’s 3rdbiz buddy, unlike Arif & Sapir, he did not even possess a thin veneer of respectability.

He’s basically a garden-variety thug.

Yet he also managed to become an investor in Trump’s SoHo scheme.

Sater became a “senior advisor” to Trump in Jan 2010
🌀Sater10🌀

More recently Sater shows up at the door of Michael Cohen, the president’s personal lawyer, delivering a back-channel “peace plan” for Ukraine in exchange for ending sanctions

🌀Sater11🌀

Cohen was the go-between, along with Felix Sater, for Ukrainian parliamentarian Andrii Artemenko, passing on a pro-Russian “peace plan” and compromising dossier on the current President of Ukraine to President Trump.
🌀Sater12🌀

Alex Oronov enabled Andrii Artemenko to set up the Ukraine Peace Plan meeting in late Jan 2017 w/ Cohen at the Loews Regency, aimed at helping give Putin control of Crimea

Alex Oronov died unexpectedly 3/17.

He was the father-in-law to Michael Cohen’s brother.
🌀Sater13🌀

Michael Cohen’s extensive ties to Ukraine made him a logical entry point for anyone “looking for the trail of money from the former Soviet Union into The Trump Org.”

Can Sater be trusted or has the FBI been “Whitey Bulgerized” by Sater & its other informants?🤔
🌀Sater13🌀

Another possibility has the FSB “tripled” Sater, using him in a much higher-level political op dwarfing in importance the info the US agencies were getting from him?

Curious he is not in witness protection.🤔
