Exclusive: Powerful Russian Partner Boasts Of Ongoing Access To Trump Family

Source: Forbes

“I have nothing to do with Russia,” Donald Trump bellowed to thousands of frenzied supporters at a Tampa, Florida rally last October. The truth, it seems, is a bit more complicated.

In an exclusive interview with FORBES, Emin Agalarov—a Russian pop singer, real estate mogul and son of one of the country’s richest people—described an ongoing relationship with the Trump family, including post-election contact with the president himself.

Among Agalarov’s most striking claims: that he and his billionaire developer father, Aras, had plans to build a Trump Tower in Russia that would now likely be under construction had Trump not run for office; that he has maintained contact with the Trump family since the election, and has exchanged messages with Donald Trump Jr. as recently as January; and that President Trump himself sent a handwritten note to the Agalarovs in November after they congratulated him on his victory.

“Now that he ran and was elected, he does not forget his friends,” Agalarov says.

So the plan seems to have been to build this tower after DT leaves office.

8. King tRump

Makes his own rules up as he goes. The repubs. have to OWN up that he is their perfect candidate. He is taking away everyone's attention, while they screw up the entire country, destroying anything of value like EPA rules, healthcare, anything that normal people value. Hopefully this investigation exposes all the corruption, both in the tRump administration and the gop. Ever wonder WHY the gop never has any quality people vying for the WH? They sure LOVE the crooks. With Agent Orange,, they hit the mother lode.

10. Well, he might not want too do this but there is NO small thing called the:

"The Presidential Records Act (PRA) of 1978, 44 U.S.C. §§ 2201–2207, is an Act of Congress of the United States governing the official records of Presidents and Vice Presidents created or received after January 20, 1981, and mandating the preservation of all presidential records."


Someone is those "press" conference everyday with over grown bugs bunny, Sean Spicer, should be asking this question:

Is the sexual predator maintaining "all" of his phone calls per the Presidential Act of 1978------------YES or NO? And if so, I would like to see them?



https://www.archives.gov/presidential-libraries/laws/1978-act.html


So all one has to do is ask for his phone calls and if he can't produce "any" of them than he broke the law

9. no phone logs, face to face or friends, family, wives, girl friends, aides, butlers, house keepers

email accounts, smurf names accounts, online game chats, throw away cell phones....

Hundreds of other ways to communicate 'deals' one wants to keep private.

11. I understand, but under the Presidential Preservation Act

this sexual predator has to archive "all" communications he has in either electronic or written form, him and his bud's in this scheme have to keep everything------------

12. You are correct. Once a person is IN Americas government, everything they do is PUBLIC record.

No more under the table private deals for elected Republicans and their hired "Aides"

19. I watched and saw what happened during Watergate

this is more in your face outright criminality.

The only reason why Nixon got caught was because of the taxes he owed and of him being asked to show those returns and how his committee to re-elect had diverted that money to the burglars, it was all because of a tax returns.

These "guy's" and "gal's" have committed treason, they were getting paid by a state power and they wrote there platform to benefit a state power in exchange for quid pro quo.

Laurence O'Donnell said it best last night, did anyone hear the right wing fascist republicans ask any questions like the democrats-----------to Clapper, Comey or Moore-----------nope, not one >

They were more interested in "leaks", looking for "talking points" having the democrats provide them with cover, because they the republicans didn't want to upset the base or a president, which is BS-------------they have people in there party more concern to lookout for the next election than trying to figure out who and how many committed treason.

If it was a democrat let's say the name Clinton, it was "lock her up" .

20. Thanks for insight. IMO, Republican party wanted trump because he has a past history of

Russian dealings he'd never want revealed. Perfect patsy for the Republican party treason(s).

I hope our American free press keeps pushing the questions.

16. trump was on the phone /w putin- time that failed ground mission was ongoing. no record of that call

no record on White House.Gov for that call, I check those public records and the federal register frequently.

Many records are missing. The updates are late and sloppy, and the Republicans staff in charge of record keeping haven't even list one financial record yet, its been 60 fucking days!!

They have the entire Obama white house.gov they could copy over but nooo, republicans have to be sloppy with Americans government public records.

14. The Republicans have shown the they are totally committed to advancing Russian interests.

This is exactly the kind of thing they must be delighted with.
Nothing will be done about it while they are in power.
