Additional contact revealed between Russia, Trump business

Additional contact revealed between Russia, Trump business”

The Post reported the information about the interactions has been given to congressional committees as well as special counsel Robert Mueller as they investigate whether Trump associates coordinated with Russian efforts to interfere in the USA election.

Per the report, Cohen exchanged emails shortly before the Republican National Convention with a business associate and old friend, Felix Sater, about attending an economic conference in Russian Federation alongside the country's financial and government leaders, including President Vladimir Putin.

They contained previously undisclosed communications between Trump associates and Russian officials during the 2016 campaign, which put the NY billionaire at helm in the White House.

President Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, possibly attempted to leverage his proximity to the Republican candidate to "curry favor with a Russian oligarch close to Russian President Vladimir Putin, "The Atlantic writes based on emails turned over to investigators". Russian billionaire Sergey Gordeev had contacted Cohen through an intermediary in October 2015, according to the Post, but Cohen turned him down, saying the Trump Organization was already committed to the proposal involving Sater.

Cohen also got a pitch in late 2015 for a Moscow residential project from a company founded by a billionaire who once served in the upper house of the Russian parliament, the Post reported.

Cohen told the Post Monday that he did not attend the economic conference in St. Petersburg and has "never been to Russian Federation".

"I've never heard him say anything and everything is connected with Russia", Lewandowski said after the reviewer.

In a declassified report released in January, the intelligence community concluded that Russian Federation helped with the Trump campaign effort ahead of winning the White House, an allegation dismissed both by Moscow and Trump. The new interactions were shared with congressional investigators and Mueller, according to The Post.

"Like any other worldwide real estate brand, it is not uncommon for third party developers to submit proposals for potential real estate projects all over the world", Cohen told The Post, explaining that only s "very small percentage of these proposals are ever pursued".

White House lawyer Ty Cobb declined to comment to The Post.

The new revelations come as Trump faces scrutiny over his ties to Russia as part of Mueller's probe into Russian election interference.

This is the second possible Moscow business deal revealed to have been pitched to the Trump Organization during the campaign. Cohen reportedly informed Rtskhiladze that the Trump Organization would not pursue the deal with Gordeev because it already had a commitment to a different Russian developer.

Robert Wolf, an attorney for Sater, declined to comment.
