RE: The Michael Cohen Bribery Scandal Is Now a Trump Bribery Scandal
Long before Viktor Vekselberg was tied to a scandal over the president and a porn star, the Russian oligarch had been positioning himself to extend his influence in the United States.

Working closely with an American cousin who heads the New York investment management firm Columbus Nova, Vekselberg backed a $1.6 million lobbying campaign to aid Russian interests in Washington. His cousin Andrew Intrater served as CEO of a Vekselberg company on that project, and the two men have collaborated on numerous other investments involving Vekselberg’s extensive holdings.

Now, Intrater’s investment firm is wrestling with the fallout from financial sanctions the U.S. Treasury Department lodged in April against Vekselberg, one of a group of oligarchs tied to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Columbus Nova has insisted it only managed Vekselberg’s vast assets. But an Associated Press review of legal and securities filings shows that the cousins sometimes collaborated in a more deeply entwined business relationship than was previously known.

Spokesmen for Columbus Nova have told the AP that the firm’s business relationship with Vekselberg has been indefinitely halted by the sanctions, which targeted Russian oligarchs accused by Treasury of playing “a key role in advancing Russia’s malign activities.”

All Vekselberg assets in the U.S. are frozen and U.S. companies forbidden from doing business with him and his entities. The deadline to sever those relationships was June 4, but talks between Columbus Nova and the government are continuing, the firm’s spokesmen said. A Treasury Department spokesman declined to comment.

The Columbus Nova spokesmen said the firm is also seeking permission from Treasury to retrieve any assets entwined with Vekselberg’s Renova Group, which the U.S. firm has called “its biggest client.”

Extricating Columbus Nova’s holdings from Vekselberg’s is not so simple. The sanctions apply to all assets in which Vekselberg has more than a 50 percent stake — including some investment funds managed by Columbus Nova in which the firm has an ownership interest, the spokesmen said. They discussed the matter on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the ongoing discussions.

A Russian citizen who has had a U.S. green card and homes in New York and Connecticut, Vekselberg once told an American diplomat he felt “half-American.” Vekselberg heads the Renova Group, a global conglomerate encompassing metals, mining, tech and other assets that is based in Moscow and Switzerland.

He wields an estimated $13 billion fortune that supports Silicon Valley startups, programs at a California state park, a Western-themed resort amid the Joshua trees near Scottsdale, Arizona — and a loan to a Baptist church in Savannah, Georgia.

“I think all along Vekselberg thought a big chunk of his life was going to be anchored here in the United States and he, like other Russia businessmen, has made strategic investments in his philanthropic work to be in better standing here,” said former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul.

Vekselberg also has cemented tech deals using a Kremlin-funded foundation — raising national security concerns years before special counsel Robert Mueller began probing contacts between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and Russian intermediaries. His opaque corporate structure, which includes an array of hard-to-trace shell companies, has fallen under Mueller’s scrutiny, according to several media reports.

Vekselberg hired Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen as a consultant in January 2017

Michael Cohen’s flatly disclaimed Kremlin contacts when questioned by Yahoo! in the immediate aftermath of his prominent mention Buzzfeed’s release of the Trump Russia dossier.

But the New York Times discovered a month later that Cohen was part of the Trump back channel to Russia, working with convicted felon Felix Sater — a former Trump Organization senior advisor — and a Ukrainian lawmaker to present a “peace plan” to General Michael Flynn.

Now we know that Michael Cohen blatantly lied to the press about his Russian Kremlin contacts, and that raises a red flag about his involvement in the sham “peace deal” he incubated, which was little more than a thin excuse to drop American financial sanctions against Russia.

Here’s the complete photographic record of Donald Trump’s meeting with Kremlin linked-Russian oligarch Aras Agalarov, his family, Michael Cohen and others:

Whistleblower reportedly leaked Trump lawyer Michael Cohen's financial records over fears of cover-up



A law enforcement official took the risky step of leaking Michael Cohen's confidential banking records over fears that additional information about the embattled attorney to President Trump was being withheld, according to an explosive report.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity over fears of serious legal repercussions, told the New Yorker on Wednesday that two so-called "suspicious activity reports" issued about Cohen's financial dealings are missing from a top-secret Treasury Department database called the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, or FINCEN.

"I have never seen something pulled off the system... It's a stockpile of information," the whistleblower told the magazine. "When something's not there that should be, I immediately became concerned. That's why I came forward."

The career official proceeded to leak the single SAR report on Cohen that was still in the system to multiple news outlets and Michael Avenatti, the attorney to porn star Stormy Daniels.

Avenatti released the document, which detailed multiple six-digit payments to Cohen's First Republic bank account from corporations with business before the Trump administration, including AT&T, pharmaceutical giant Novartis and Columbus Nova, a Manhattan-based investment firm tied to a sanctioned Russian oligarch. The SAR also detailed a $130,000 payment Cohen made to Daniels in return for her promising to not speak publically about allegedly having sex with Trump in 2006.

But beyond those revelations, the Treasury Department whistleblower said there are two more SARs describing even larger flows of money being pumped into his account.

Avenatti's dossier hints at the existence of the additional SARs, but it's unknown which individuals or corporations might be involved in the payments, which amount to more than $3 million, according to the official.

Qatari Investor Says Michael Cohen Told Him He Could Work With Trump Administration If He Paid Cohen $1 Million

There has been considerable hubbub in recent days involving a Qatari individual named Ahmed Al-Rumaihi. In 2016, Al-Rumaihi ran a $100 billion investment fund for the Qatari government; he’s reportedly now a private investor. Last week, an estranged American business partner of Al-Rumaihi’s made an explosive claim in a court filing: that Al-Rumaihi had bragged to him, in vague terms, that former national security adviser Michael Flynn had taken a Qatari government bribe. Over the weekend, Stormy Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti tweeted images that show Al-Rumaihi with Trump lawyer Michael Cohen at Trump Tower on Dec. 12 , 2016, a day that Flynn was also present for presidential transition meetings.

Al-Rumaihi has now surfaced and, in an interview with the Intercept, says he didn’t bribe Flynn—but that Cohen did ask him for a personal $1 million “fee” as a prerequisite for Qatari participation in a Trump administration infrastructure initiative that never came to fruition. Here’s Al-Rumahi’s description of Cohen’s pitch, which he says took place at a restaurant in a New York hotel in the week before Dec. 12:

Quote: When Al-Rumaihi asked Cohen more generally about important projects that the investment fund should back, Cohen said there were plenty of options. But Cohen said he would need $1 million first as part of his fee, Al-Rumaihi told The Intercept. … Al-Rumaihi said he did not pay Cohen, and Cohen’s since-revealed account ledger includes no payment from Al-Rumaihi or any companies connected to him.

Part of his fee. Bold!

As the Intercept alludes to, Al-Rumaihi’s claim is particularly interesting given the recent revelation that Cohen received several sizable payments for “consulting”—payments that were made to a firm that does not appear to have had employees or an office—from a number of major companies in the wake of Trump’s inauguration.

Quite a bit of stuff being released today it would seem.

At what point does this become "impeachable" and WHO is deleting all these transactions from government databases. Who is authorized to perform deletions on government databases - not too many and there are transaction logs. Why is this being ignored

Quote:At a meeting in Miami on April 5, Franklin Haney, the owner of an inoperative nuclear power plant in Hollywood, Alabama, sought a major investment for his facility, according to two sources familiar with the gathering. His target, the sources say, was Sheikh Ahmed bin Jassim bin Mohammed Al Thani, Qatar’s minister of economy and commerce and deputy chairman of the Qatar Investment Authority, the $300 billion sovereign wealth fund of the natural-gas-rich Persian Gulf state. Also at the meeting, according to the sources, was Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s longtime personal lawyer and fixer. (Several days later, Cohen’s office and home would be raided by federal agents.) Now, as the Trump scandal expands to include Cohen’s business deals and possible interactions between Trump associates and officials of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, any relationship between Cohen and Qatar would likely be of interest to federal investigators.

RE: The Michael Cohen Bribery Scandal Is Now a Trump Bribery Scandal
How Michael Cohen, Trump’s Fixer, Built a Shadowy Business Empire

Quote:The son of a Holocaust survivor, Mr. Cohen grew up in the Five Towns area of Long Island, just east of the New York City borough of Queens. It was a comfortable life — both his father and an uncle were doctors, and he attended a local private school then called Woodmere Academy.

“My cousins are all either lawyers or doctors,” Mr. Cohen told The New York Times last year.

One of those relatives was his uncle Dr. Morton W. Levine. Uncle Morty, as he was known to his family, had no children of his own, and he and Mr. Cohen were close. He even let his nephew drive his Bentley.

Dr. Levine, a family practitioner, provided medical assistance to members of the Lucchese crime family, “which aided their illegal activities,” according to a sworn affidavit in 1993 from an F.B.I. special agent. The agent was involved in the investigation of the Lucchese underboss, Anthony (Gaspipe) Casso, who “regarded Levine as someone who would do anything for him,” according to the affidavit. That account was buttressed by testimony from a longtime Lucchese associate in an unrelated 2006 federal trial. In 1992, Dr. Levine bought Mr. Casso’s home while Mr. Casso was a fugitive. Dr. Levine has acknowledged in court documents that Mr. Casso was a patient. But he said he did not know that the house belonged to Mr. Casso and denied any wrongdoing.

Dr. Levine also owned El Caribe, a Brooklyn catering hall that for decades was the scene of mob weddings and Christmas parties. Two of New York’s most notorious Russian mobsters once maintained offices there.

Mr. Cohen was among the minority owners of El Caribe, Dr. Levine has said, although he added that Mr. Cohen gave up his ownership stake after the 2016 election.

Dr. Levine had crossed paths with Mr. Trump years before his nephew went to work for him. The doctor was part of an investment group with some garment executives that unsuccessfully challenged Mr. Trump’s 1989 bid for the Atlantis Casino in Atlantic City.

Dr. Levine declined to comment.

Mr. Cohen began his professional legal career at a personal injury firm in 1992, the year after he graduated from Cooley Law School in Michigan. His boss at that first job would later plead guilty to bribery.

Mr. Cohen’s marriage in 1994 gave him entree to communities of immigrants from the former Soviet Union.

His new father-in-law, Fima Shusterman, had emigrated from Ukraine in 1975. By the time of the wedding, Mr. Shusterman had landed in serious legal trouble. In 1993, he pleaded guilty to evading federal reporting requirements for large cash transactions, admitting that he had cashed $5.5 million worth of checks to evade disclosure laws. Mr. Shusterman cooperated with prosecutors in a related case and was sentenced to probation.

In the years after his marriage, Mr. Cohen began doing business with Ukrainian and Russian immigrants. They hailed from New York, Chicago and Florida, in neighborhoods like the Brighton Beach section of Brooklyn and parts of Miami like Sunny Isles, known as the Russian Riviera, communities through which a vein of organized crime ran.

Anthony (Gaspipe) Casso in 1989. Mr. Casso, an underboss in the Lucchese crime family, was close with Dr. Morton Levine, Mr. Cohen’s uncle, according to an F.B.I. affidavit.

In 1999, Mr. Cohen would find himself in the middle of a Sunny Isles real estate deal involving a hockey player and a purported figure from the Russian underworld.

Nearly 20 years later, the details of the transaction remain unclear, but Mr. Cohen received a check for $350,000 from a Russian player for the Montreal Canadiens that was part of a deal involving an apartment in Sunny Isles.

The player’s agent later testified that the money was intended to go to Vitaly Buslaev. Mr. Buslaev, who has been identified by multiple Russian media outlets as a Mafia figure, was a friend of one of Mr. Cohen’s business partners, according to two people who knew both men.
