    Barrack–Saudis/UAE; Lauder–Alfa Bank; Kushner-Abramovich

    Lawyer Thomas J. Barrack Jr. first met Donald J. Trump in the 1980s.
    According to Roger Stone:
    Barrack is to Trump as Bebe Rebozo was to Nixon, which is the best friend.
    Barrack once invited the Bedouin executive of Aramco to stay with him in Newport Beach, Calif., when he was in California for medical treatment, and in turn Barrack made a nice profit for selling 375 Blue Bird school buses to Aramco.

    In the 1970s, Barrack became friends with Paul Manafort when they were working for Saudi interests in Beirut. It was Barrack, who recommended Manafort for the job of campaign manager in early 2016.
    After Barrack was chosen as chairman of President Donald’s inaugural committee, he first hired Manafort’s deputy Rick Gates to help run the inauguration and then as a consultant.

    In 2010, Barrack led a group of lenders to take over $70 million of the debt owed by Jared Kushner, to keep him out of bankruptcy.

    Barrack also arranged the meeting between the Lebanese-American George Nader, gay paedophile and top adviser to the crown prince of the UAE, with Donald Trump Jr. on 3 August 2016.
    At this occasion, Nader offered the assistance of the rulers of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to get Donald Trump crowned US president.

    Barrack had once made drilling deals with Ambassador Otaiba's father Mana Saeed Al Otaiba (Emirati oil minister at the time).
    In 2009, UAE Ambassador to the US Yousef al-Otaiba worked with Barrack to sell the L’Ermitage Raffles hotel in Beverly Hills to a joint venture half owned by an Abu Dhabi investment fund for $41 million. In 2012, Ambassador Otaiba invested $1 million in Barrack’s fund to buy homes on the cheap after the real estate crash.

    In May 2016, Tom Barrack also introduced Jared Kushner to UAE Ambassador Yousef al-Otaiba.
    Barrack and Ambassador Otaiba also worked to arrange a secret meeting between Trump’s campaign manager Manafort and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in June 2016.
    Ambassador Otaiba later wrote Barrack:
    Thanks to you, I’m in consistent contact with Jared and that has been extremely helpful, for both sides I think.
    Barrack’s Colony NorthStar has raised more than $7 billion in investments since Donald Trump was nominated for president by the Republican Party. Almost 24% of that money came from the UAE and Saudi Arabia.
    In 2017, Barrack looked for investors to finance his $400 million purchase of the office tower One California Plaza in Los Angeles. Barrack sold a $70 million stake to an Israeli insurance company and another $70 million to a state investment company controlled by the crown prince of Abu Dhabi (the United Arab Emirates).

    Before Donald was elected president, Barrack’s most prominent gulf customers were the Qataris, who amongst others bought the film studio Miramax and a Paris soccer team from him.
    In September 2016, Barrack also set up a meeting between Donald Trump and the emir of Qatar in Trump Tower, but apparently this didn’t work out too well:

    In 2006, Ron Lauder’s Lauder Institute partnered with the Russian Alfa Bank to award Deutsche bank for their successful business in Russia:

    In November 2014, Alfa’s German Khan and Mikhail Fridman visited London and spent Shabbat with Lauder and other representatives of the British Jewish community:

    Ron Lauder and Len Blavatnik were also Committee members of the USC Shoah’s campaign “Auschwitz: The Past is Present”, with Kushner-Trump-Clinton affiliated: Yuri Milner, Haim Saban, Steven Spielberg, Barry Diller (and his wife Diane Von Furstenberg), David Geffen, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Eric Schmidt, Harvey Weinstein, Rob Wiesenthal and Jeff Zucker:

    Lauder has also worked on Jewish causes alongside national director of the Anti-Defamation League Jonathan Greenblatt and Roman Abramovich’s Chelsea:

    In early 2014, Ivanka and Jared Kushner attended a charity event with Roman Abramovich that also included Alexey Reznikovich (head of Alfa’s LetterOne Technology) and other Russian oligarchs, including Viktor Vekselberg, Len Blavatnik and Ekaterina Vinokurova (daughter of Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov) with her husband Alexander Vinokurov (who is a director of Alfa Group).
    Kushner and Abramovich are close friends. In 2010, Thrive Capital, the venture firm founded by Joshua Kushner (Jared’s younger brother), that was funded by Jared, invested in Artsy. Investors in Artsy included Wendi Deng (Rupert Murdoch’s ex-wife) and Dasha Zhukova (Roman Abramovich’s wife):

    Steinmetz, ENRC, pollution

    In 2005, the notoriously secretive Amsterdam-based Cunico Resources acquired FENI industries. Cunico Resources was started as a joint venture between Beny Steinmetz Group Resources (BSGR) and International Mineral Resources (IMR). IMR is the Zurich-based subsidiary of the Eurasian Natural Resources Corporation (ENRC), controlled by the Kazakh trio (Alexander Mashkevich, Patokh Chodiev and Alijan Ibragimov).
    FENI industries owns both the ferronickel plants in Kavadarci (Macedonia) and NewCo Ferronikeli (in Kosovo, since 2006).

    Air pollution from the NewCo Ferronikeli mine and smelting plant was 9 times the legal limit, and “posed a serious risk to the health of the population”.
    In the NewCo Ferronikeli there were explosions, fires, and dangerous levels of pollution. In June 2011, a furnace exploded in the plant, injuring 5 workers and damaging dozens of homes. Demonstrators blocked the entrance to Ferronikeli’s facilities for several days.

    The amount of nickel found in moss from Kavadarci was about 15 times higher than in the rest of Macedonia.
    From 2011 to 2012, the cancer rates in and around Kavadarci rose from 981 to 1,332.
    In 2013, 17 children younger than 6 were diagnosed with cancer.

    In 2013, thousands of Romanians protested against the pollution by the Rosia Montana plant, owned by Gabriel Resources.
    The 3 largest shareholders in Gabriel Resources are BSG Capital Markets (of Beny Steinmetz), Electrum Global Holdings and hedge fund Paulson & Co; each own 16%.

    In July 2013, the Dutch Court froze ENRC’s assets, including its share of Cunico Resources, over fraud allegations.
    Also in 2013, ENRC was “investigated by the Serious Fraud Office over claims of fraud, bribery and corruption in Africa”:

    In 2019, Attorney General William Barr “personally spearheaded” the attempt to stop the investigation by the Department of Justice into the largest Turkish state-owned bank, Halkbank.
    That came after President Recep Tayyip Erdogan contacted President Donald “in a bid to avoid charges” and a lobbying campaign for months to avoid prosecution.

    The top lobbyist for Turkey was Trump crony Brian Ballard, who had extensive contact with Trump’s lawyer Jay Sekulow during that time.

    On 15 October 2019, despite all the pressure, US attorney Geoffrey Berman indicted the Halkbank anyway for a multi-billion-dollar scheme to evade U.S. sanctions on Iran. Berman explained:
    The bank's audacious conduct was supported and protected by high-ranking Turkish government officials, some of whom received millions of dollars in bribes to promote and protect the scheme.

    In December 2007, Trump hosted the wedding of Sapir’s daughter, Zina, and Leviev’s right-hand man, Rosen, at Mar-a-Lago. A few months later, Leviev met Trump to discuss potential deals in Moscow. Trump has called Sapir “a great friend”.
    In June 2008, Zina Sapir and Rosen held a bris for their newborn son. Trump and Jared Kushner attended the bris.

    In 2010, Israeli authorities “investigated” a money-laundering case of Bank Hapoalim that involved the Katsyv family. Millions of dollars were transferred through Katsyv-controlled accounts at the bank. According to Israeli prosecutors, Hapoalim bank managers concealed the real beneficiaries of these accounts in violation of anti-money-laundering rules.
    The bank blamed Katsyv’s business for these violations, so the bank managers were found not guilty.

    Prevezon Holdings Ltd was registered in 2005 and is owned by Denis Katsyv and Martash Investment Holdings Ltd from the British Virgin Islands that is also owned by Denis Katsyv.

    On 5 February 2008, Bunicon received $9.4 million from the correspondent account of the Krainiy Sever bank. The next day Bunicon sent $410,000 to Prevezon’s account at the Swiss bank UBS AG.
    On 13 February 2008, Elenast received $800,000 from the same account and then transferred more than half that amount to Prevezon.

    Katsyv is also in business with Russian oligarch Lev Leviev:

    Lev Leviev also bought Israeli media companies together with Donald Trump’s close friend Ronald Lauder.
    And links to Donald’s son-in-law Jared Kushner.

    Leviev told the New York Times that he was a “true friend” of Vladimir Putin, largely through his work with the Moscow Jewish Museum, the Russian Jewish Congress and his close ties to Russia’s Chief Chabad Rabbi, Berel Lazar.
    The following story is quite good... see some excerpts (including Hapoalim, Leviev, Denis Katsyv and Preet Bharara).
    Trump fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey primarily because Comey asked for additional resources from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to beef up the FBI's "follow-the-money" investigation of the Trump campaign. The FBI's receipt of data from the Department of Treasury's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FINCEN) regarding the money laundering involving Trump and Kushner businesses, accounts maintained by the Bank of Cyprus, HSBC, Bank Hapoalim of Israel, and other banks, and the Trump presidential campaign are what lie at the heart of the FBI's investigation of Trump. The FBI is reportedly focused on Trump's associates' financial dealings with banks in Cyprus.

    Bayrock was linked as a partner to another business syndicate, the Sapir Organization, headed by Donald and Ivanka Trump's and Jared Kushner's good friends Rotem Rosen and Israeli citizen Alex Sapir. The Sapir Organization is involved in major hotel projects in New York and around the world, including the Trump Tower in Toronto. Others involved with the Toronto Trump Tower include Uzbek-Israeli diamond tycoon Lev Leviev, accused of trafficking in African "blood diamonds" and Canadian-Russian-Israeli businessman Alexander Shnaider, owner of Talon International Development Inc, and co-owner of Midland Resources Holding Inc. with his partner Ukrainian-Russian billionaire , who is also vice-president of the World Jewish Congress.

    According to the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, none other than Preet Bharara, who Trump fired, the Trincher criminal syndicate, known as the "Taiwanchik-Trincher Organization, ran a major illegal sports betting operation in the United States. Bharara's indictment specified the "Taiwanchik-Trincher Organization (the "Organization") was a criminal enterprise with strong ties to Russia and Ukraine. The enterprise operated a high-stakes, illegal sports gambling business out of New York City that catered primarily to Russian oligarchs living in Ukraine and Russia." In other words, the same tower that Donald Trump called home was the center of a major illegal sports betting operation. Given Trump's own ties to gambling casinos and professional sports, there is little wonder why Trump viewed Bharara and Comey as threats.

    A Kushner project to redevelop Manhattan's SoHo neighborhood involves the family of Israel's diamond magnate billionaire family. The Kushner deal involves Raz Steinmetz, whose uncle is Beny Steinmetz, the owner Steinmetz Diamond Group and BSG Resources, the latter under an FBI investigation for violations of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act for bribes paid to officials of the West African Republic of Guinea for mining concessions in that nation. Steinmetz companies also conduct business through a British Virgin Islands shell company called "Rebar LLC."

    Ras Steinmetz's brother, Daniel Steinmetz, was involved in business with Jared Kushner through Gaia Investments Corporation of Tel Aviv through an affiliate Gaia JC LLC. After Jared Kushner became a chief adviser to Trump, said to be one of only a few in a Trump "inner circle" that also includes daughter Ivanka Trump, communications specialist Hope Hicks, and Trump "body man" Keith Schiller, the Steinmetz-Kushner firm changed its name to "65 Bay LLC."

    In a case that was vigorously pursued by fired U.S. Attorney Bharara in Manhattan, the U.S. Justice Department, now under Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his deputy Rod Rosenstein, has agreed to a settlement with Moscow businessman Denis Katsyv and his hedge fund firm Prevezon Holdings, Ltd. just three days before scheduled jury selection for the trial. Prevezon and its eleven related companies had been charged with money laundering for a criminal network extending from Russia to Moldova and Latvia to New York and Israel. What was at the heart of the money laundering case? You guessed it. the Red Kosher Nostra. Katsyv's partners included his Russian partner Timofey Krit and Israeli businessman Alexander Litvak.

    On 30 April 2020, Geoffrey Berman announced a deferred prosecution agreement against Israel's largest bank Bank Hapoalim, for helping to hide assets in offshore accounts and helping to bribe FIFA officials (the body that controls international soccer).
    Bank Hapoalim settled the 2 cases for more than $900 million. Berman commented:
    Israel's largest bank, Bank Hapoalim, and its Swiss subsidiary have admitted not only failing to prevent but actively assisting U.S. customers to set up secret accounts, to shelter assets and income, and to evade taxes. The combined payment approaching $1 billion reflects the magnitude of the tax evasion by the Bank's U.S. customers, the size of the fees the Bank collected to provide this illegal service, and the gravity of the illegal conduct.
    In the first case, Bank Hapoalim helped launder millions in bribes and kickbacks paid to officials in FIFA. Between 2010 and 2015, Hapoalim’s Miami branch laundered illicit payments to FIFA officials, including former head of Colombian football and a member of FIFA’s executive committee Luis Bedoya. In 2015, Bedoya was banned from international soccer and was (is?) awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty pleading guilty to racketeering and wire fraud.
    Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowsk commented:
    For nearly five years, Bank Hapoalim employees used the U.S. financial system to launder tens of millions of dollars in bribe payments to corrupt soccer officials in multiple countries.
    In the second case, Bank Hapoalim pleaded guilty to aiding U.S. customers in setting up accounts under false names to evade taxes on more than $7.6 billion in deposits.
    For this second case alone, Bank Hapoalim agreed to pay $874 million in penalties, tax arrears and forfeited assets:

    When Georgia wasn’t doing too well economically, Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev came to the rescue. In 2005, Georgia’s president Mikhail Saakashvili and Nazarbayev announced that BTA Bank was providing 300 hundred million dollars in loans to develop Georgia.
    In a strange twist, all the loans went to subsidiaries of the Silk Road Group. BTA’s deputy chairman, Yerkin Tatishev, selected one of his employees at the Kusto Group, Talgat Turumbayev, to represent both BTA and him on the boards of 2 of those subsidiaries. Some legal experts conclude that if Tatishev was financially involved in businesses funded by the BTA Bank loans, then he and the Silk Road Group have committed bank fraud (self-dealing).
    Not surprisingly one of Silk Road’s subsidiaries receiving loans, Batumi Riviera Holding, B.V., was registered in the Netherlands.

    In 2009, when Nazarbayev was planning to take control of BTA Bank, its chairman, Mukhtar Ablyazov, fled to London (where else?). Ablyazov took billions of dollars in bank funds out of BTA, by giving dozens of offshore companies under his control loans from B.T.A., which weren’t paid back.
    Starting in 2009, Ablyazov was sued in the UK by the Kazakh government to reclaim ten billion dollars that he had siphoned out of the country. The UK courts ordered him to repay more than four billion dollars to BTA (so that he could keep almost six billion dollars). According to Judge Nigel John Martin Teare, Ablyazov had committed “fraud on an epic scale”.

    In 2010, Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen began negotiating with the Silk Road Group about a Trump Tower in Batumi, Georgia.
    When Donald came to Georgia for a speech, he pointed to Tatishev and Ramishvili and said: “We have two great partners. And they’re going to do a fantastic job”:

    I found the following story by "chance" after I couldn’t find it by searching the internet for a link to Bayrock, Arif or Sater, to Mukthar Ablyazov....

    More than $30 million of the looted billions from Mukhtar Ablyazov was invested in the US with the help of none other than Tevfik Arif’s and Trump’s gopher, Chabad-Lubavitcher Felix Sater.

    Eesh Aggarwal had worked for Ablyazov’s son-in-law, Ilyas Khrapunov, to use a network of a dozen or more offshore companies to launder hundreds of millions of dollars through accounts in the Tanzania-based bank FBME.
    Ilyas Khrapunov — under the codename “Elvis” — was the ultimate beneficiary of the offshore network that handled close to $440 million through accounts at the FBME bank.

    Bayrock's and Sater's links to the Khrapunovs date back to 2007, when Trump SoHo was under development. They set up a Dutch joint venture with Arif’s Bayrock called KazBay. Bayrock and the Khrapunovs also partnered on a project in Switzerland in 2008.
    Sater was also directly involved with 2 members of Ilyas Khrapunov's family.
    From 2012 to 2014, Ilyas Khrapunov and Elvira were helped by Sater and another ex-Trump Organization employee, Daniel Ridloff, to transfer millions of dollars to the US. Part of this cash was used to buy 3 Trump SoHo apartments:

    Who could have imagined that according to Chabad-Lubavitch Rebbe Schneerson, non-Jews have no other purpose than to serve Jews, who are the reason for creation?!?

    All US presidents since Jimmy Carter have shown their respect to Chabad-Lubavitch rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson.
    In 1982, president Ronald Reagan added to the “Education Day U.S.A” that this includes the “eternal validity of the Seven Noahide Laws, a moral code for all of us regardless of religious faith”.

    Even though Donald Trump’s “Education Day U.S.A” proclamation don’t mention Noahide Law it does rebbe Schneerson, who advanced the Noahide agenda.
    The Chabad-Lubavitch website reminds us that the Jewish Noahide Laws are the “unifying idea” of all these “Education Day U.S.A” proclamations.

    Here are some disturbing Jewish supremacy quotes from Chabad-Lubavitch rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson…
    The difference between a Jewish and a non-Jewish person stems from the common expression: “Let us differentiate.” Thus, we do not have a case of profound change in which a person is merely on a superior level. Rather, we have a case of “let us differentiate” between totally different species.

    This is what needs to be said about the body: the body of a Jewish person is of a totally different quality from the body of [members] of all nations of the world … The difference in the inner quality between Jews and non-Jews is “so great that the bodies should be considered as completely different species."

    An even greater difference exists in regard to the soul. Two contrary types of soul exist, a non-Jewish soul comes from three satanic spheres, while the Jewish soul stems from holiness.

    …the general difference between Jews and non-Jews: A Jew was not created as a means for some [other] purpose; he himself is the purpose, since the substance of all [divine] emanations was created only to serve the Jews.

    The entire creation [of a non-Jew] exists only for the sake of the Jews.

    Before I started posted about the Zionist Chabad-Lubavitch cult in October 2017, I thought that Flynn’s connection to the Dutch-Turk lawyer Ekim Alptekin was interesting...

    After President Donald pardoned Lt. General Michael Flynn, he has already been interviewed:

    Now it appears the Chabad-Lubavitch cult is basically based on the Satanic, mystic Kabbalah.
    The founding “alter” Rebbe of the Chabad, based the ChaBaD on the esoteric, Kabbalah teachings of the Baal Shem Tov and Maggid.
    After the Alter Rebbe’s famous arrest and release from the jail in St. Petersburg, his “discourses”, presented the “deepest Kabbalistic ideas“ as a “revelation of the infinite Light distilled into human intellect”.

    Jewish mysticism, especially the Zohar and the Kabbalah of Rabbi Isaac Luria, are frequently cited in Chabad works.

    Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson also proved gifted in both Talmudic and Kabbalistic study:

    In the spring of 2012, Donald Trump’s eldest children, Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr., were in a precarious legal position. Emails showed that the Trumps intentionally inflated figures about how well the condos in Trump SoHo were selling to lure buyers. According to a source who saw the emails: there is “no doubt” that the Trump children “approved, knew of, agreed to, and intentionally inflated the numbers to make more sales. They knew it was wrong”.
    Trump SoHo was the project for which Trump partnered with Bayrock and Sapir.

    See Eric Trump, Tevfik Arif, Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump, Tamir Sapir, Alex Sapir, Julius Schwarz and Zina Sapir at Trump Soho Construction Site, 19 September 2007.

    Business was slow, but the Trump family claimed the opposite. In April 2008, they said that 31% of the condos in the building had already been sold. Donald Jr. even boasted that 55% had been bought. In June 2008, Ivanka announced to the foreign press at Trump Tower in Manhattan that 60% had been snapped up.
    According to a sworn affidavit by a Trump partner: in March 2010, only 15.8% of units had been sold. By law, the sales couldn’t close with less than 15% of the units sold, or Trump and partners had to return the down payments.

    The lawyers in the Major Economic Crimes Bureau believed Ivanka and Donald Jr. could have violated the Martin Act, which bans false statements to sell real estate.
    The defence team for Trump later acknowledged that some exaggerated statements were made to increase sales. They claimed this was mere “puffery”, harmless exaggeration that didn’t amount to criminal conduct.

    Donald Trump Sr. got his personal lawyer for a decade, Marc Kasowitz, to handle the case. On 11 January 2012, Kasowitz donated $25,000 to the re-election campaign of Manhattan district attorney Cyrus Vance Jr that returned the $25,000 contribution.
    On 16 May 2012, Kasowitz visited Vance’s office, in the presence of Dan Alonso and Adam Kaufmann. Vance later overruled his prosecutors and told them to drop the case. On 3 August 2012, assistant district attorney Peirce Moser called the Trumps’ defence attorneys and said they were dropping the investigation.
    Kasowitz subsequently boasted to colleagues that it was “amazing I got them off”. Kasowitz has denied making this statement.

    Then, in September 2012, Kasowitz contacted Vance’s campaign about hosting a fundraiser. The event was held January 2013, for which Kasowitz personally donated almost $32,000, and 20 of his law firm’s partners and employees kicked in at least another $9,000. In October 2013, as Election Day approached, Kasowitz hosted a breakfast which raised another $9,000 for Vance’s campaign.
    Vance later said that New York law allowed him to accept the contributions, but he plans to give Kasowitz’s second contribution back anyway, because: “I don’t want the money to be a millstone around anybody’s neck, including the office’s”.
    Kasowitz said his donations to Vance were unrelated to the case:
    I donated to Cy Vance’s campaign because I was and remain extremely impressed by him as a person of impeccable integrity, as a brilliant lawyer and as a public servant with creative ideas and tremendous ability.

    I have never made a contribution to anyone’s campaign, including Cy Vance’s, as a ‘quid-pro-quo’ for anything.
    Paul Grand, who earlier had been a partner of Vance’s when the district attorney was in private practice, was part of the Morvillo Abramowitz law firm that defended the Trump SoHo project, said:
    Dropping the case was reasonable.
    The manner in which it was accomplished is curious.
    Five months earlier, Trump and partners had reached a settlement with the disgruntled buyers. Their complaint accused the sellers, including the Trumps, of “a consistent and concerted pattern of outright lies”.
    They agreed to return 90% of the buyers’ deposits, plus their attorneys’ fees. Part of the deal was that the plaintiffs wouldn’t cooperate with prosecutors unless they were subpoenaed:

    Here’s some more interesting stuff on the Sapir Organization that was founded by (the late) Tamir Sapir.
    In 2007, Zina Sapir, daughter of Tamir, married Rotem Rosen. Rosen was CEO of the Sapir Organization from 2009 to 2017 and the controlling shareholder and director of ASRR Capital from 2014 to June 2017, when he sold his shares to brother-in-law Alex Sapir.

    Rosen is also in business with billionaire Ferit Sahenk, owner of Zuma Restaurants.
    Rotem Rosen was also the "right hand man" of diamond magnate Lev Leviev:

    See Lev Leviev and Trump.

    Self-pronounced Putin’s friend Lev Leviev’s primary residence is a $70 million home in London (where else?).
    Leviev’s holding company, Africa Israel Investments, owns, owned or held stake in a large amount of New York real estate, besides a diamond boutique on Madison Avenue.

    In 2008, Lev Leviev sold $710 million in Manhattan real estate to a subsidiary of the 88 Queensway Group.
    In September 2008, China Sonangol purchased the JP Morgan building for $150 million. Rotem Rosen, CEO of AFI-USA, signed the deed.

    In September 2008, China Sonangol paid Leviev’s companies $50 million (in addition to taking on half the building’s $720 million debt) for a 49% stake in the former New York Times Building.
    In August 2011, Leviev’s company sold the top 12 floors of the former New York Times Building for $160 million to the Blackstone Group, the largest private landlord in the USA.
    In May 2015, Kushner Companies (of Jared Kushner) announced the purchase of the remaining 51% share of the 250,000-square-foot retail condo of the building for $295 million from Leviev’s Africa-Israel USA and private equity firm Five Mile Capital.

    In 2013, Rotem Rosen and Alex Sapir accompanied Trump on his visit to Moscow, where they met Azeri-born, Moscow-based oligarch Aras Agalarov – an ally of Putin - and his “pop singer” son Emin Agalarov.
    Emin Agalarov spent $20 million on Miss Universe contest in 2013 (so he could sing for a large public):

    In 2014, Ivanka also visited Moscow and met Emin Agalarov.

    On 11 November 2013 Donald Trump tweeted:
    @AgalarovAras I had a great weekend with you and your family. You have done a FANTASTIC job. TRUMP TOWER-MOSCOW is next. EMIN was WOW!

    The article in this post makes a convincing case that Donald’s associate Tevfik Arif, born Toifik Arifov on 15 May 1953 in Kazakhstan, was a “Kazakh gangster” (in the words of Felix Sater) and/or a KGB operative.

    Reportedly, after finishing his education, Tevfik Arif worked in the “Soviet Ministry of Commerce and Trade” for 17 years, as the “chief economist and deputy director” of the “Department of Hotel Management”.
    On the internet there is no reference to any “Soviet Ministry of Commerce and Trade”. There was however a “USS Chamber of Commerce and Industry” with a hotel division, “V/0 Sovintsentr”. According to a US State Department report with CIA information, a third of their staff was KGB.

    In a court case in Turkey, Arif testified that he went on to work in the energy, chemical and metallurgy sector. Arif said he produced (or organised) coal in Russia and copper in Kazakhstan.
    Then he went to work for Trans World Group (TWG), a British company headed by the brothers David and Simon Reuben. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Reubens moved aggressively into metals production.
    According to the reports, we have to conclude that Arif became a fixer for TWG in Kazakhstan, for which he needed deep connections in political and business circles. The kind of people who had those connections in the former Soviet Union was either (ex-)KGB, or mobsters.

    The Arifs managed to buy a highly lucrative chemical plant. How could they?
    The real money-maker for the family was Castello Global Ltd., which handled the profits from the chrome trading business. Here is a breakdown of Castello Global’s profits:
    2004 - $19.85 million
    2005 - $31.04 million
    2006 - $39.20 million
    2007 - $18.59 million
    2008 - $43.87 million
    After Arif got a Turkish passport, he moved to New York, set up his new company Bayrock Group in Trump Tower, and partnered with Donald Trump and Felix Sater.

    Another pair of fixers, who started working with TWG in 1992, is the brothers Lev and Michael Cherney, who formed a 50-50 partnership with TWG. In 1996, the Swiss authorities accused Michael Cherney of “drug trafficking, money laundering, fraud and sponsoring murder” on behalf of the crime organisation of Russian mob boss V. Ivankov, nicknamed “Yaponchik”. The Reubens quickly bought out Cherney’s share in TWG for $410 million.
    The federal Swiss court exonerated him of the charges, but 2 years later Spain issued an international warrant for Michael Cherney’s arrest for money laundering:

    It's good to know that your tax money is well spent.
    First the US helped install the ruthless Ayatollah Khomeini, continuing to supply the Mujahideen to produce heroin, and then hired a crook like Felix Sater, who later worked for Donald Trump, to get them back for $300,000 per Stingers missile, as part of the CIA's Operation Missing in Action Stingers (MIAS).

    Sater has also boasted about hunting USAma Bin Laden after 9/11 was staged:

    It is strange how attorney William A. Burck of Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan keeps representing Trump associates.
    Where to begin?

    Let's start in 2004, when Burck was a federal prosecutor in the Southern District of New York under Preet Bharara whom Trump fired after being inaugurated president he prosecuted none other than Felix Sater, who received a sweetheart deal.
    Sater is of course another Chabad-Lubavitcher, who went on to become Tevfik Arif's right hand man and worked for the Trump Organization.

    In 2005, Burck he moved to Department of Justice headquarters in Washington, and then the George W. Bush administration, as deputy assistant to the president and then deputy staff secretary to Kavanaugh (who Trump appointed as Supreme Court judge).

    More recently, Burck has been hired by all sorts of crooks surrounding Donald in legal troubles.
    Burck’s clients include former White House counsel Don McGahn, who was subpoenaed by the House.
    In the Mueller "investigation", Burck represented Trump’s first chief of staff Reince Priebus and the SCL Group's spindoctor Steve Bannon. Also in Bannon's defence for taking millions of the donations for a privately constructed part of the great Mexico wall.

    William Burck was also the attorney for Donald's friends Elliot Broidy and Robert Kraft.

    Burck’s clients also included the scandal-plagued soccer organisation FIFA, whose officials faced money laundering and racketeering charges from the Eastern District of New York in 2015.

    Another important client of Burck was the Sater-linked FBME bank in Cyprus, which with Deutsche Bank helped Russian clients launder money (which makes this full circle conflicts of interest):

    In legal documents, a series of threats are alleged by Abergil, Yehezkel and Aharon Avitan (brother of the deceased crime boss and convicted murderer Herzl Avitan), as well as Shalom Domrani, head of the biggest crime organization in southern Israel.

    Abergil and his brother were in an Israeli prison awaiting extradition to the USA to face a 32-count federal indictment:
    Have not followed this story and blanket boogeyman "Russia" headlines in MSM have left almost any other foreign lobbies & interests stories undercovered, Flynn Turkey Trump links story also seems to have been one such underreported saga.

    Have to say you post some interesting news pics that are not pusblished elsewhere in MSM news.

    On a side note, that pink tie might have been just coincidence but he had made his name for standing up for LGBTQ causes and was being harassed so much on this issue by Christian conservatives of GOP that at one point questions on this topic were not allowed during his Q&A sessions.

    Beyond the sort of heckling Trump faced, the network’s tactics usually focus on asking speakers specific and very leading questions about Israel, immigration, and LGBTQ issues within conservatism, hoping to elicit answers that reveal the speaker’s “fake conservatism.” “Real conservatism” being defined essentially as an emphasis on ethnic and racial characteristics as determinants for immigration coupled with an isolationist foreign policy and a “traditional” stance on LGBTQ issues.
