Hasn't this been known for a while now? I mean, I recall reading about him trying to get a building in Moscow a few months back, and how Felix Sater was involved. Does this just nail down the timeline?

Yeah, but the White House probably knew this was about to break, because, you know, the failing Amazon Washington Post has actual journalists who try to get people on the record to confirm their information. So, Friday was full of Arpaio and Harvey.

Rick Wilson just wants you to know this isn't the story the Post was asked to sit on. Apparently that's still very much out there (and i assume is the real reason for both Friday and Rick's "two weeks" prophecy)

/Rick made the "two weeks" tweet on the 17th
//guess what two weeks from that is. Thursday.
///We may have a Friday news dump that will rival last week and the Comey firing week. Combined.
 
2017-08-28 08:35:52 AM  
Also, from my understanding, this is rather a huge deal, as Trump was essentially trying to seal the deal on selling his name for the tower. That's it. He was just looking to get paid for his name...by a foreign entity, in a foreign country that is known to be helping his campaign, all while he is actively campaigning for president.

it comes off looking like a bribe, and that's the story.

You ever have one of those moments where you really don't want to know something, because you're tired of the onslaught of bullshiat? I'm experiencing that with the hint that something worse is going to drop by the end of the week. I mean, yes, I want Two Scoops nailed to the wall with incontrovertible proof that he is unfit, a criminal, and everything besides, but at the same time, it's starting to become overload.

I know the feeling. I have enough herbal supplements stocked up to last me through the Pence administration (however long that lasts)

something big is going to drop soon. This is apparently just the first course.

good luck, everyone.

Felix Sater, quite a piece of work.

In 1998, Sater pleaded guilty to for his involvement in a $40 million stock fraud scheme orchestrated by the Russian Mafia.

In 1991, Sater got into an argument with a commodities broker at the El Rio Grande restaurant and bar in Midtown. He stabbed the man's cheek and neck with the stem of a Margarita glass, breaking his jaw, lacerating his face, and severing nerves, creating a wound that would require 110 stitches to treat.

In a deposition about Felix Sater, Trump said he "doesn't know him very well."

2017-08-28 09:08:06 AM  
But, hey, don't take the reporter's word for it.  Just listen to...oh, Felix Sater.  In an interview he gave with New York magazine, Sater himself hinted, "In about the next 30 to 35 days, I will be the most colourful character you have ever talked about. Unfortunately, I can't talk about it now, before it happens. And believe me, it ain't anything as small as whether or not they're gonna call me to the Senate committee."

Wasn't there an article a week or so ago hinting something big was going to be revealed in about 2 weeks?  It got pushed off the radar because 1) it was a bit vague and 2) Trump supported the Nazi marching in VA.

Rick Wilson tweeted out something big was gonna drop "in about two weeks" on Aug 17th.

But rumors have been circulating for at least a month or two that either NYT or WaPo or both are sitting on stories because they've been asked to by the intelligence community. Wilson has said today that this story isn't the one that was sat on. Those are still out there, waiting to be free

Which will put it squarely in the middle of the Houston recovery efforts.  Which means Donny Two Scoops will whine incessantly about how the fake news media is focusing on Russia and treason and pee tapes instead of slobbering over the YUGE FEMA response which he has absolutely nothing to do with.

Interesting article.

There's something else that's very important in the article.  It talks about federal RICO racketeering charges that could be pending, and also notes that the state of New York has its own RICO racketeering laws.  Recall what I wrote here a couple weeks ago - a presidential pardon ONLY covers federal crimes, not state or local.

RICO allow for confiscation of property associated with the crime.  It would give me the most awesome boner to have all of Trumps assets confiscated.

A significant number of them are trying like the dickens to run away from these stories.  Donnie Trump has been very steadily working to tie them more closely to it instead.  And when they take steps to extricate themselves or distance themselves from Donnie, he threatens to destroy them politically.

There are two ways this sort of increasing conflict ends: (1) Congress turns on Donnie and utterly destroys him, or (2) Congress bends over, gives up all their power, including the power of impeachment, the power of investigation, the power to set its own rules, the power of the purse, and becomes a rubber stamp for Donnie.

That won't be lost on a single member of the Senate (at least), and I expect them to vote in their own interest, if nothing else.  Then again,
