Russian-American businessman at heart of Trump Tower Moscow project will testify to Congress on Friday

Published

on

On Wednesday, the Washington Post reported that Felix Sater, the Russian-American real-estate developer at the center of the proposal to build a Trump Tower project in Moscow in 2016, will testify before the House Intelligence Committee in a closed-door hearing on Friday.

Sater, in addition to working on the planning for Trump Tower Moscow, escorted Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr. to Russia during the preliminary stages of the project, which never came to fruition.

Donald Jr. had previously testified to the Senate that his involvement in the project was very minimal, which has opened him up to accusations of perjury and a further round of questioning from Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC).

The details of the Trump Tower Moscow project have been a key focus of Democrats in Congress, as Trump was pursuing a deal with a foreign government at the same time that government was launching cyberattacks against the U.S. election in which he was a candidate.

This news comes just as former White House Communications Director Hope Hicks wrapped up a closed-door hearing with the House Judiciary Committee, during which she categorically refused to speak about anything that happened during her tenure in the administration after White House Counsel Pat Cipollone declared her “immune.”

Published

Appearing on CNN's "New Day," a former adviser to Bill Clinton said that he expects ex-special counsel Robert Mueller to make a some blunt statements about President Donald Trump in his upcoming appearance before a Congressional committee that will cause voters to turn on the president.

According to Guy Smith, who advised former President Bill Clinton during his impeachment ordeal, Mueller's own words will carry tremendous weight with voters who have no idea what is in his report on the president.

"Well, what we're going to see is people who have never read the report, which is most everybody, and they have only heard President Trump and the attorney general say he's been exonerated. It does not," he told host Christi Paul. "So, what's going to happen is that they're going to be hearing Robert Mueller in his own words say that the president obstructed justice. The American people have not read this thing."

Published

Faced with a continuing firestorm over last Sunday's racist Twitter attack on four Democratic lawmakers -- who all happen to be women of color -- President Donald Trump was again returned to Twitter to attack the women instead of letting the issue die.
