Re(2): Who is Felix Sater? Posted on 3/17/2018 at 18:16:08 by Bill Crawford, (14)
Listening to the interviews of Sater and reading the accompanying articles, it sounds to me like Sater was the one who was promoting the various real estate deals with the Russians, and that Trump was passively going along with these proposals. Or maybe even that Sater was dealing only with Trump's lawyer on the matter of building a Trump Tower in Moscow.
In any event, I didn't get the impression that Stater was implying that Trump had ever done anything wrong with regard to the Russian real estate dealings.
Even so, it sounds like Sater knew and dealt with Trump over a period of several years on a personal basis on various real estate matters.
That's the reason I found it strange that Trump would claim that he barely knew Sater, and that he wouldn't even recognize him if they were in the same room together. Replies:
