Trump lawyers push back against Russia ties in letter


Democrats have been pressing Mr. Trump to disclose any financial ties to Russian Federation amid investigations of possible links between his presidential campaign and the country, particularly in light of this week's firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey.

USA Today reported soon after that Donald Trump Jr.

On Tuesday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters that Trump had "charged a leading law firm" to send a letter to Graham showing that "he has no connections to Russian Federation".

The letter also notes the 2008 sale of a Palm Beach mansion to Russian oligarch Dmitry Rybolovlev, who bought the home for $95 million. It's as if Hicks was nudging her boss back on message, reminding him that a supposed routine IRS audit is the reason Trump has long cited for not releasing his returns like every other presidential candidate in modern history (in an effort to assure the public there is nothing untoward about their finances).

"I have no investments in Russian Federation, none whatsoever", Mr Trump said in an interview with NBC News on Thursday. It is something that many people within the Trump administration have stated despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

Trump has refused to release his income tax records, despite pressure from Democrats, breaking with a practice set by his predecessors. Last week golf writer James Dodson revealed that Eric Trump had once bragged that the family businesses has "all the funding we need out of Russia" to build new golf courses. It offers no explanation for why they were writing Trump.

The letter does not address whether Trump or his organization ever received payments or loans from Russian entities registered elsewhere in the world. Some of those exceptions include multi-million dollar real estate and licensing deals. "He'd say go look at everything".

The documentary shows how Trump not only helped hide the identity of his mobster business partner-which prompted an ongoing lawsuit accusing Trump of criminal racketeering, but also how Trump used that internal company crisis to demand more money.

Those who voted against were the USA , U.K., Germany, Ukraine, the Netherlands, Togo, Paraguay, Greece, Lithuania and Italy. He also asked the budget to be cut by another $ 2 million in March when the UNHRC approved five anti-Israel resolutions.


"It's a more than reasonable question whether [campaign manager] Paul Manafort, who was on Moscow's payroll, and that of the former pro-Moscow Ukrainian government before it was overthrown, is cooperating with federal investigators", Johnston said.

It was sent to Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is investigating Russian interference in the USA presidential election. "'They are dropping dead even in Western countries'". The Russians are alleged to be in possession of sensitive information about Trump. Eric Trump has denied that the conversation took place.

Do you ever have any question about anything you wish to ask and get answer? Though it was initially unclear which firm the president hired, the AP article point to work done by Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP. Because I have a hard time believing that attorneys for Jones Day or Morgan Lewis are really this clueless.
