Mueller Closes In On Trump Loyalists with Russia Ties Who Funneled Cash To RNC

Middle Eastern real estate investor Barrack oversaw the fundraising for the Trump inauguration. Several donors with foreign ties contributed huge sums topping out at $1 million dollars.

There are ties here to the Kremlin and to oil. Blavatnik, who gave $1 million to the Trump inaugural non-profit through his company Access Industries, is connected to Viktor Vekselberg, the Russian oligarch who is linked to Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.

Vekselberg is one of the three Russian tycoons who was targeted by U.S. sanctions for engaging in “malign activities” around the world who may have lost a combined $7.5 billion from the sanctions according to Reuters April 12th calculations. The stakes are high for these players.

He is a Russian businessman and owner of recently sanctioned Renova Group. Vekselberg and Blavatnik were a part of the AAR, which was a consortium of four Russian oligarchs that had its assets bought by Rosneft, the Russia state-owned oil company.
