Daily Beast
Trump Associate Felix Sater Will Testify Publicly About Trump Tower Moscow in March

Felix Sater, a New York real estate figure and former business associate of President Trump, will testify before Congress on March 14 about the Trump Tower Moscow deal. House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) announced the news Thursday night, telling reporters that the hearing will be public and the committee will “try to do as much as we can in the open.” “I should tell you, just to set your expectations, not every hearing is going to be like the open hearing with Michael Cohen,” he said. Sater's hearing comes amid renewed scrutiny of the Trump Tower Moscow deal after Cohen testified on Wednesday that Trump lied to the public about his involvement in the project, with discussions still ongoing over the deal even when Trump was the presumptive Republican nominee for president in 2016. Cohen is set to testify again again on March 6. The Daily Beast also reported that Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg will be called to testify in front of House Intelligence.

Thanks for pointing that out!

The full complaint is at https://www.courthousenews.com/wp-conte ... /sater.pdf

They say Felix & Co hacked all their data while staying at their house. Pryor Cashman filed it so I guess it's for real, but seems like a long shot.

Law & Crime
Lawyer Who Questioned Donald Trump About Felix Sater Says He Told ‘Flat Untruth’ Under Oath ...

“If somebody tells a flat untruth under oath then that’s the very definition of perjury,” Jared Beck said in an interview on the Law&Crime Network program Brian Ross Investigates.

In his testimony, Trump said he barely knew Sater and stated, “If he were sitting in the room right now, I really wouldn’t know what he looked like.” ...

More evidence of Sater’s connections to Trump could emerge next week when Sater is scheduled to testify before Congress in an open session. A series of emails have established that Sater was deeply involved with Cohen in trying to help Trump negotiate a deal to build a Trump Tower in Moscow even as Trump was campaigning for President and denying he had any business deals with Russians.

Trump was being questioned in the 2013 deposition about Sater because of questions being raised about who was financing a Trump condo development in Florida.

“Sater had been convicted in a money pump and dump stock scheme that was connected to the Mafia,” said attorney Beck. “I just think Trump did not want anything on the record of associating himself or his organization specifically with someone who had such a known shady past and a connection to the criminal underworld.”

Beck said that if Trump or anyone in his organization sought to hide Sater’s involvement in connection with a bank loan, “I could see that rising to the level of a fraud claim.”

Reuters
Trump associate Felix Sater's testimony postponed to March 27

(Reuters) - The congressional testimony of Felix Sater, a former business associate of U.S. President Donald Trump who worked on a plan to build a Trump-branded skyscraper in Moscow, has been pushed back by two weeks to March 27, a congressional aide said on Friday.

“Due to scheduling issues, the Committee has moved Mr. Sater’s open interview to March 27. He continues to cooperate with the committee,” a spokesperson for the House Intelligence Committee said in an emailed statement to Reuters.

Sater Eyed Trump Moscow Tower to Launder Cash, BTA Bank Says

This week, New York developer Felix Sater is set to testify before Congress about his role in Donald Trump’s attempt to build a tower in Moscow. A lawsuit filed Monday may provide new fodder for his inquisitors, with its claim that Sater, a longtime associate of Trump’s, sought to use money stolen from a bank in Kazakhstan to help develop the building.

The suit by BTA Bank JSC alleges that Sater and the wealthy Kazakh businessman Ilyas Khrapunov explored financing the tower deal in 2012 with some of the $4 billion stolen a decade ago by Khrapunov’s father-in-law, ex-BTA Chairman Mukhtar Ablyazov. While the Moscow plan fizzled, other transactions tied to Sater helped launder the purloined cash, the bank says.

House Intelligence postpones Felix Sater's public testimony

The House Intelligence Committee has postponed Felix Sater's public testimony on Wednesday, in which he was expected to discuss his work with Michael Cohen on building a Trump Tower in Moscow.
"In light of the cursory letter from the Attorney General, and our need to understand Special Counsel Robert Mueller's areas of inquiry and evidence his office uncovered, we are working in parallel with other Committees to bring in senior officials from the DOJ, FBI and SCO to ensure that our Committee is fully and currently informed about the SCO's investigation, including all counterintelligence information. With the the focus on those efforts this week, we are postponing Mr. Sater's open interview.

DC Report
Why Donald Trump wants the Mueller report, and his taxes, kept secret

Unsealed court documents reveal more of Trump's long, shady history with mobster and informant Felix Sater ...


Sater testified in secret before the House Intelligence Committee 16 months ago that he helped prevent financial crimes and terrorist attacks, including by obtaining Osama bin Laden’s telephone number and locations of al-Qaida weapons caches, and providing photos and other information on a North Korean military operative trafficking in nuclear bomb materials.

That means that between Trump, when he was a private citizen, and a host of Russian criminals and a North Korean nuclear weapons materials trafficker there is only one degree of separation: Sater.

For years beginning in late 2001 or 2002, Sater traveled widely looking to develop Trump Organization real estate projects. Sater had an office in Trump Tower, near Trump’s own office.

Sater and Trump worked closely together on real estate projects in Florida, Colorado, Arizona and Moscow. Most of the projects failed or devolved into litigation by angry bankers and investors because huge sums of money were missing.

Trump and Sater’s last project together was the largest: the 46-story Trump SoHo hotel and office tower in Manhattan.

Trump signed a letter authorizing a recapitalization of the troubled project in which bankers and buyers lost money. Millions of apparently untaxed dollars of profits for Trump, Sater and others vanished into an Icelandic bank under the thumb of a Russian oligarch — prompting extensive litigation, efforts by Trump and others to seal court files and eventually removal of the Trump name from the building.

New York Times
Donald Trump Jr. Is Subpoenaed to Testify to Senate Panel on Russia Contacts

WASHINGTON — The Senate Intelligence Committee has subpoenaed Donald Trump Jr., the president’s eldest son, who met with Russians in June 2016 after being promised political dirt about Hillary Clinton, according to people familiar with the committee’s decision.

The Republican-led committee is particularly interested in the younger Mr. Trump’s account of the events surrounding that meeting — as well as his role in his father’s efforts to build a skyscraper in Moscow — and comparing the testimony to his previous answers to Senate investigators in 2017.

Donald Trump Jr. is the first of President Trump’s children to be subpoenaed in the continuing congressional investigations into Russia’s 2016 election interference, and the move is likely to intensify the ire of a president who has spent more than two years railing against the Russia inquiries.

Mr. Trump is a scion of President Trump’s global business empire and was one of his father’s close advisers during the election.

A lawyer for the younger Mr. Trump declined to comment.

The June 9, 2016, Trump Tower meeting was the main focus of investigators’ questions during Senate Judiciary Committee testimony the following year. Investigators were particularly interested in what — if anything — Mr. Trump told his father about what had transpired. Repeatedly, he told them that he said nothing to President Trump — either before the meeting or after.

Senate Intelligence Committee subpoenas Donald Trump Jr.

Washington (CNN) The Senate Intelligence Committee has subpoenaed Donald Trump Jr. for him to return and testify again, and the committee is now at a standoff with President Donald Trump's eldest son, according to sources familiar with the matter.

One option Trump Jr. is considering in response to the subpoena is to invoke his Fifth Amendment rights, and another is just to not appear at all, according to one source. The subpoena from the Republican-led Senate Intelligence panel is believed to be the first issued to one of Trump's family members.

Discussions for Trump Jr.'s testimony began several weeks ago before special counsel Robert Mueller's report was released, the sources say. Trump Jr.'s team resisted giving testimony, in part, because the findings of the Mueller report were still not known. ...

The subpoena for Trump Jr.'s testimony marks an escalation of the Senate Intelligence Committee's probe into Russian election interreference. The panel's investigation, led by GOP Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina, has been running for more than two years, and the committee has interviewed many of the same witnesses who spoke to Mueller's team. The committee has recently begun re-interviewing witnesses, including Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who appeared for a second time earlier this year. ...

"Don continues to cooperate by producing documents and is willing to answer written questions, but no lawyer would ever agree to allow their client to participate in what is an obvious PR stunt from a so-called 'Republican' senator too cowardly to stand up to his boss Mark Warner and the rest of the resistance Democrats on the committee," the source said.

.@DonaldJTrumpJr has already spent dozens of hours testifying in front of Congressional committees. Endless investigations—by either party—won't change the fact that there was NO collusion. It's time to move on. It’s time to focus on ISSUES, not investigations.

USA Today
Firestorm erupts around Sen. Richard Burr, man behind Donald Trump Jr. subpoena. He's not backing down

WASHINGTON — North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr is not one to make a splash.

So when the Senate Intelligence Committee, which Burr chairs, issued a subpoena to Donald Trump Jr., it didn’t leak out for a couple of weeks. When the news finally broke, Burr refused to talk about it.

That didn’t stop the onslaught from fellow Republicans, including President Donald Trump who said he was “very surprised” by the move. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul called it “persecution of the president’s family.” Even Burr’s fellow North Carolina Republican, Sen. Thom Tillis, facing a primary challenge in 2020, tweeted “It’s time to move on.”

Burr is not the usual target for Republican ire. He’s been in Washington since 1995, first in the House then the Senate, and is a reliable conservative vote.

The mild-mannered senator is a far cry from the president’s Democratic critics, who have suggested Trump is "goading" impeachment by trying to overturn constitutional norms.

The subpoena “is a courageous move for Burr, for the senator, because he knew that the angriest people would be members of his own party,” Frank Luntz, a GOP pollster told USA TODAY.

New York Times
Donald Trump Jr.’s No-Shows Led to Subpoena, Republican Senator Says

WASHINGTON — Allies of Donald Trump Jr. may have stirred up a firestorm among Republicans over a subpoena to recall the president’s eldest son to the Senate Intelligence Committee, but the panel’s Republican chairman has suggested to colleagues that the standoff is of the younger Mr. Trump’s making.

Twice in recent months Donald Trump Jr. agreed to sit for voluntary interviews with the Intelligence Committee, only to later back out, Senator Richard M. Burr of North Carolina, the panel’s chairman, told colleagues privately last week, according to two people familiar with his remarks. The chairman said at a senators-only luncheon last Thursday that the evasions had left the committee no choice but to issue a subpoena on April 8 to give senators a chance to directly question the younger Mr. Trump as they seek to tie up loose ends on their investigation of Russian election interference.

Nodding to the media maelstrom that news of the subpoena set off, Mr. Burr told colleagues that he was not happy about the confrontation, but he suggested that the younger Mr. Trump had been given ample opportunity to cooperate quietly and voluntarily, according to the people, who were not authorized to discuss the private lunch. The committee’s investigation is the last bipartisan inquiry into Russia’s efforts to influence the 2016 election and the Kremlin’s ties to the Trump campaign. ...

It was only after his lawyers sought to postpone the April session, after also having done so in March, that the committee warned the Trump team that it was losing patience, the people said Mr. Burr told senators. If Mr. Trump did not show up, committee staff members told the lawyers, Mr. Burr would be forced to issue a subpoena.

Donald Trump Jr. reaches deal with Senate Intelligence Committee for testimony in June
Donald Trump, Jr. and the Senate Intelligence Committee have reached a deal for the President's eldest son to appear before the committee behind closed doors in mid-June, sources familiar with the matter told CNN.

The agreement for Trump Jr.'s testimony comes after the committee issued a subpoena last month that sparked an intense blowback against Republican Chairman Richard Burr of North Carolina from Trump Jr.'s allies and many of Burr's Republican colleagues.

The interview will be limited to two to four hours and limited in scope to five to six topics, according to the sources. But questions about the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting and the Trump Tower Moscow project will not be off limits, said two sources familiar with the matter.

The two sides also agreed it will be the last time Trump Jr. will be asked to come before the committee in relation to its investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 campaign.

Cohen told lawmakers Trump attorney Jay Sekulow instructed him to falsely claim Moscow project ended in January 2016

Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former longtime personal attorney, told a House panel during closed-door hearings earlier this year that he had been instructed by Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow to falsely claim in a 2017 statement to Congress that negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow ended in January 2016, according to people familiar with his testimony.

In fact, Cohen later admitted that discussions on the Moscow tower continued into June of the presidential election year, after it was clear Trump would be the GOP nominee. Cohen is serving three years in prison for lying to Congress, financial crimes and campaign finance violations.

House Democrats are now scrutinizing whether Sekulow or other Trump attorneys played a role in shaping Cohen’s 2017 testimony to Congress. Cohen has said he made the false statement to help hide the fact that Trump had potentially hundreds of millions of dollars at stake in a possible Russian project while he was running for president.

“We’re trying to find out whether anyone participated in the false testimony that Cohen gave to this committee,” House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.) said in an interview. He did not comment on who, if anyone, might have instructed Cohen to lie.

The Hill
Cohen challenges Sekulow to testify about Trump Tower meetings

Michael Cohen, a former personal attorney for President Trump, challenged the president's current lawyer to testify before Congress about negotiations with Russians before the 2016 election about building a Trump Tower in Moscow.

The remarks come days after the House Intelligence Committee released transcripts of private interviews with Cohen in which he testified that Trump's lawyer Jay Sekulow encouraged him to lie to Congress in 2017 about the duration of the discussions.

“Michael testified truthfully before Congressional committees when he said it was Mr. Trump’s attorney, Jay Sekulow, who suggested to Michael the false date of January 31, 2016 as the cut-off date for any Russian discussions on Moscow Trump Tower during the campaign. Mr. Sekulow made a public statement casting doubt on Michael’s veracity on this point,” Lanny Davis, Cohen’s attorney, said in a press release.

“So, on behalf of Michael, I ask Mr. Sekulow, respectfully: will you testify, as Michael did, before Congress to state your contradiction of Michael’s memory?” ...

Davis also said Cohen would make himself available to Congress for further testimony.

“Michael wishes to make it clear that he continues to be available to Congress and prosecutors to tell the truth about Mr. Trump. He is willing to be interviewed at the Facility or, if permitted under appropriate supervision, in Washington, DC,” Davis said. “Michael believes his testimony and corroborating documents establish that Mr. Trump committed obstruction of justice before, during, and after the presidential campaign.”

Former Trump business partner Felix Sater set to testify Friday before House Intelligence Committee

Felix Sater, a Russian-born real estate developer, is set to testify Friday before the House Intelligence Committee about his experience working on a proposed Trump tower project in Moscow during the 2016 election, according to Sater and other people familiar with his scheduled appearance.

The closed-door interview is part of an inquiry by the House panel into President Trump’s long-standing interest in expanding his brand to Moscow, a topic that Rep. Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.), chairman of the committee, has said he intends to explore further.

“This was a project that the president was pursuing during the presidential campaign” that “may have been the most lucrative deal of his life,” Schiff said Wednesday of Trump’s efforts to develop a project in Russia, which never advanced beyond the early stages.

During an appearance at the National Press Club, Schiff said the Trump Organization was effectively seeking Russian President Vladi­mir Putin’s support for a Moscow tower in 2016 “while the candidate, Donald Trump, was out on the campaign trail extolling the merits of Vladi­mir Putin.”

A spokesman for Schiff did not comment on Sater’s planned testimony but said the committee is continuing its investigation into the Moscow project and “will be proceeding with multiple staff-level interviews as part of that investigation during the coming weeks.”
