Trump Declines to Single Out Russia as Security Threat

Trump's Moscow project was abandoned last year – just before the presidential primaries began – because it lacked land and Russian permits

Top Trump Organization attorney Michael Cohen wrote the top spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin seeking "assistance" with a Trump Tower Moscow project, new bombshell documents turned over to Congress reveal.

Cohen denied the proposed deal had anything to do with Trump's presidential ambitions - but "the emails extend a lengthening list of contacts between the campaign and people with apparent connections to Russian leadership", says The Independent.

The email, first reported by The Washington Post on Monday, concluded with Cohen "respectfully" requesting "someone, preferably you;" contact him to discuss "the specifics as well as arranging meetings with appropriate individuals". Alan Garten, the general counsel of the Trump Organization, said that Sater only happened to be in Moscow at the same time as the two Trump children. We know from yesterday's report that a Russian-born business associate had promised he could get Putin to help with it and that it would help get Trump elected as well.

"Our boy can become president of the United States of America and we can engineer it", Mr. Sater wrote in an email.

A Multistate Salmonella Outbreak Has Been Linked to Pet Turtles
The mini reptiles have caused 37 people across 13 states to be infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Agbeni since March. It said six people in the current outbreak reported buying turtles from a flea market or street vendor, or getting one as a gift.

"Nothing came of this".

Sater also claimed to have helped organize a 2006 trip to Moscow for Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump and son Jr.

Sater acted as a "deal broker" for the Moscow project, serving as an intermediary between the Trump Organization and a Russian real estate development company that planned to license the Trump name, Cohen said.

But Wednesday's announcement by the Kremlin was expected to fuel concerns among critics that President Trump is getting too close to Russian President Vladimir Putin. According to the Dmitry Peskov, his office received an email from US President Donald Trump's Spokesperson Michael Cohen in January 2016 and didn't reply.

He said the email was sent to the public "Press Office of the Kremlin" address - which receives thousands of queries, relevant or otherwise - and denied knowing Cohen personally.

Trump, who was elected in November 2016, never went to Moscow, the newspaper said.

Both Cohen and Sater's wives are Ukrainian, and the lawmaker they met with, Andrii Artemenko, told Business Insider in interviews earlier this year that he felt it was his patriotic duty to find a peaceful solution to the war.

"I chose to abandon the proposal less than two weeks later for business reasons, and do not recall any response to my email, nor any other contacts by me with Mr. Peskov or other Russian government officials about the proposal", Cohen said. "The Soviets also offered to set up a dispute resolution committee consisting of seven Russians and three Trump representatives, a deal Trump didn't like". Trump denied having any business interests in Russian Federation in July 2016, tweeting, "for the record, I have ZERO investments in Russian Federation".
