I love sarcasm. But this author overdoes it.

He was the guy who delivered pizza that time.  He wasn't very good.  Very very late.  Sad!

In a properly organized universe, he'd wearing poorly-applied clown make-up, stinking of cheap vodak, scaring small children in a tired, run-down Moscow circus.

He's the soon-to-be stooley that will supply Mueller enough to get Trump impeached.
Then, right after, I can see him accidentally impaling himself multiple times with an umbrella, losing his balance and falling off a 10 story balcony.
Sad

Didn't he help James Bond through the CIA?

Better article:

Who Is Felix Sater, and Why Is Donald Trump So Afraid of Him?

Every time someone asks Donald Trump if he knows Felix Sater, his Russian-born, Brooklyn-bred former business associate, Trump draws a blank. Despite the fact that Sater worked on and off for a decade with the Trump Organization, and despite his recent headline-making appearance as an exuberant negotiator on behalf of Trump's hardnosed attorney, Michael Cohen, in seeking to build a "massive Trump Tower in Moscow" last year, Trump ducks.

"I mean, I've seen him a couple of times; I have met him," Trump said, in a deposition in a court case involving Sater in 2013. And The New York Times reported him as saying, "If he were sitting in the room right now, I really wouldn't know what he looked like." As late as 2015, when asked about Sater, Trump hemmed and hawed. "Boy, I have to even think about it."

Trump has been tied to the Russian mob scene for a long time so this was all known before the campaign even started. As mentioned in my link, his Bayrock group rented the floor beneath Two Scoops' penthouse. Now compare how much you heard about that to Hillary's emails. I'm looking at you, NYT.

Whoever he is, Trump definitely had nothing to do with him like that good guy Paul Manafort.

The deal Sater was working on for Trump with Cohen was about to be cover for a bribe:

Caroline O. @RVAwonk

At the time of the GOP debate, Trump Org was in talks to get $4M upfront, no fees & a spa named after Ivanka in Trump Tower Moscow deal...👀


Can we please see Trump's taxes?

...and the answer is NO. No, you may not see Trump's taxes.

A pretty nutty thing is happening in the House Ways&Means Cmte this pm. The Republicans are voting to keep Trump's tax returns hidden. 1/

Yea, I'm sure that'll go down exactly how they plan it to.

Okay, listen.  Don't try and force humor into something.  If the humor comes naturally, go for it.  If you have to work to write a joke, the joke's going to bomb.  There are exceptions to every rule, but actually being funny is hard work.

Further protip:  In an article like this, if you're going to try and inject that type of comedy, state the facts, and then work the syringe.  Italics can be a godsend, as can parentheses.

If he was a publicly known FBI stoolie and had Russian mob connections and is living openly instead of in hiding and hasn't been murdered, then he has some serious pull at the very top.

If anything I'd suspect that he was intentionally planted as an FBI informant in order to feed them misinformation.

I assume it appeals to the same people who laughed at David Letterman. Salon has a weird target demo and article breadth. It's like they want to be Rolling Stone but just don't have the chops.
