From The New York Times:
As a broker for the Trump Organization, Mr. Sater had an incentive to overstate his business-making acumen. He presents himself in his emails as so influential in Russia that he helped arrange a 2006 trip that Mr. Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, took to Moscow.
“I arranged for Ivanka to sit in Putins private chair at his desk and office in the Kremlin,” he said.
Ms. Trump said she had no involvement in the discussions about the Moscow deal other than to recommend possible architects. In a statement, she said that during the 2006 trip she took “a brief tour of Red Square and the Kremlin” as a tourist. She said it is possible she sat in Mr. Putin’s chair during that tour but she did not recall it. She said she has not seen or spoken to Mr. Sater since 2010. “I have never met President Vladimir Putin,” she said.
It’s possible, but she doesn’t remember! LoL That’s legalese for she sat in it, but knows it’s a horrendous look for the daughter and advisor to a U.S. President who is thought to be in Putin’s pocket.
The memes are going to write themselves!
Much bigger Trump-Russia news has broken today, but this is a part of it. Felix Sater, the Russian guy who claims credit for setting up Ivanka’s special Kremlin Tour, is at the heart of today’s revelations about a 2015-2016 Trump Tower Moscow project.
