Trump allies made a ‘flurry’ of suspicious money transfers after Don Jr met with Russians: report

Published

The Trumps made a “flurry” of suspicious financial transactions following Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian intelligence asset in Trump Tower, reports BuzzFeed News.

According to the new report, just after the meeting “a complex web of financial transactions among some of the planners and participants who moved money from Russia and Switzerland to the British Virgin Islands, Bangkok, and a small office park in New Jersey.”

The key figure is Putin-allied oligarch Aras Agalarov, who also has ties to Donald Trump. Following the meeting, Agalarov transfered money to “at least two people” who attended the meeting.

Then, after the election, there was a second flurry of transfers.

“The Agalarov family started sending what would amount to $1.2 million from their bank in Russia to an account in New Jersey controlled by the billionaire’s son, pop singer Emin Agalarov, and two of his friends,” BuzzFeed reports. “The account had been virtually dormant since the summer of 2015, according to records reviewed by BuzzFeed News, and bankers found it strange that activity in Emin Agalarov’s checking account surged after Trump’s victory.”

Another piece of interesting timing: The first transfer happened on June 20, the same day Trump fired campaign manager Lewandowski so he could put Paul Manafort in charge. Manafort famously refused to take a salary, but on the same day Agalarov used a company called Silver Valley Consulting to move millions.
