Trump associate reportedly said Russia deal would 'get Donald elected'

Trump's development firm couldn't obtain the proper permits to build a tower in Moscow

In one January 2016 correspondence, Cohen reportedly emailed Russian President Vladimir Putin's aide, Dymytry Peskov, to ask for his help pushing the project forward.

Mr. Sater, a Russian immigrant, was a broker for the Trump Organization at the time, which means he was paid to deliver real estate deals.

Cohen portrayed the proposal as one of "countless" that the Trump Organization has received for developments around the world, noting that Trump had properties and developments in about a dozen different countries.

But the revelations about the Moscow deal "looks very bad for team Trump", said Andrew Wright, a professor at Savannah Law School who served in the White House as associate counsel to President Barack Obama. But at the end of January 2016, shortly before the presidential primaries, the project was canceled - formally because of some problems with the land. Sater's projects with Trump through his erstwhile firm, Bayrock Group, were often ephemeral-the Trump Fort Lauderdale and Trump SoHo failed spectacularly, while the Trump Phoenix Plaza never materialized all.

Mr Sater, who appears to have been a middle man in the Moscow Trump Tower proposal, has long been a controversial figure. The alleged attempt happened around the same time as the meeting between Trump Jr. and the Russian lawyer in Trump Tower in New York.

Putin of Russia in Kaliningrad earlier this month.

Michael Cohen, Trump's personal lawyer, issued an additional statement to the House Intelligence Committee on Monday that stated that the president's company pursued a Trump Tower in Moscow during the 2016 election cycle, but added that "the plan was abandoned for a variety of business reasons".

The real estate mogul was in Russia visiting sites for a potential tower.

The border wall was one of Trump's signature campaign promises.

Mexico's foreign ministry said in a press release Sunday the country will not, "under any circumstances", pay for a barrier on the border between the U.S. and Mexico.

Despite all of Lax's difficulties, and despite the fact that Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry was discontinued in March, he and the Trumps were until recently still still close. "It was a building proposal that did not succeed and nothing more". - Sater meaningfully wrote to the executive vice president of Trump Organization, Michael Cohen.

Trump has repeatedly said that he has no business ties to Russia.

Cohen wrote to Peskov in an email saying, "Over the past few months I have been working with a company based in Russia regarding the development of a Trump Tower - Moscow project in Moscow City", according to the Post. The Trump Organization then began exploring further financing and soliciting architectural blueprints.

Congressional investigators have been briefed on the previously unreported Trump Organization emails and will obtain copies shortly. "I know how to play it and we will get this done", Sater wrote. Peskov never replied, Cohen said, and the real estate project never received the Russian government's green light.
