‘All Putin’s team will buy in on this’: Trump partner promised Russian help so ‘our boy can become president’

Published

on

One of President Donald Trump’s business partners, Felix Sater, reportedly agreed in 2015 to manage a relationship with Russia and its president, Vladimir Putin, that would guarantee the U.S. presidency for Trump.

The New York Times reported on Monday that it had obtained emails in which Sater “boasts” the claims to Trump attorney Michael Cohen.

“Our boy can become president of the USA and we can engineer it,” Sater wrote in one email, according to the Times. “I will get all of Putin’s team to buy in on this, I will manage this process.”

The emails show that, from the earliest months of Mr. Trump’s campaign, his associates viewed close ties with Moscow as a political advantage. Those ties are now under investigation by the Justice Department and multiple congressional committees.

There is no evidence in the emails that Mr. Sater delivered on his promises. 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.

In response to the report, the Trump Organization denied it has any real estate holdings in Russia.
