What? Yet another Russian?

Courtesy of The Guardian:

A Russian-American businessman who donated a substantial sum to Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential election effort boasted to a senior figure in Moscow that he was “actively involved” in the Republican candidate’s campaign, the Guardian can reveal.

Simon Kukes said he was helping Trump with “strategy development” and shared photos of his 29-year-old Russian girlfriend posing with the future president.

Kukes made the claims to Vyacheslav Pavlovsky, a career Kremlin official and former ambassador to Norway. Pavlovsky is currently vice-president of Russian Railways.

The disclosure raises questions about the role played by Kukes in the run-up to the election and what information, if anything, was being relayed by him to his associates in Russia.

Kukes’s donations began two weeks after the meeting at Trump Tower in June 2016, when Donald Trump Jr, Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner discussed “dirt” on Hillary Clinton with a Russian lawyer.

In total Kukes gave $273,000 (£207,000) to Trump Victory – a fundraising committee that distributes donations between the candidate, the Republican National Committee (RNC) and state Republican parties. He had no previous history of giving money to political causes.

So wait, this guy only started giving money to the campaign after that Trump Tower meeting that we are led to believe meant nothing about Russian collusion, and which was so insignificant that Trump himself was not even informed about it? 

Does anybody really still buy that?

I’m hoping that Mueller is way ahead of all of us, as usual, and already knows about this guy.

    ” federal judge on Friday gave a green light to a lawsuit filed by 200 Democrats in Congress against President Donald Trump. The lawsuit claims that Trump has repeatedly and continuously violated the U.S. Constitution by doing business with foreign governments while in office.”
    “By recognizing that Members of Congress have standing to sue, the court proved to all in America today that no one is above the law, not even the President,”
    Trump is facing a separate emoluments suit filed by the attorneys general of Washington, D.C., and Maryland that is moving forward.”

    This story just reminded me of Lindsey Lohan when she snagged a rich Russian. Those rich Russians. They have so much money they can get our movie stars. Make our celebrities turn into presidents and then tell them what to do and say. It’s amazing what’s on the Russian wish list. Who knew?
