Was that Trump Tower Moscow Deal nearly Done, or was it really just a ‘Bait and Switch’?
Given all the other evidence slowly coming out about this Moscow project, it’s no wonder they tried to keep in under wraps, like Cohen explained.
1) Rudy Giuliani said the active Trump negotiations on this Moscow project continued into Nov of 2016.
2) Trump has admitted, in a moment of delirium, that this was his back-up plan in case he lost the Election.
3) BuzzFeed has LEO sources who say there was a $50 Million dollar Putin Bribe to seal the deal.
4) A signed copy of the Letter of Intent has turned up from Oct 28 2015, where Trump would charge millions, and get a cut of future proceeds, all for the honor of having the “Trump Branding” on the Moscow Tower.
And it’s no wonder Putin was so hesitant to get this Deal done, despite stringing Cohen and Sater along through much of 2015. The tip-off should have been the hundreds of millions in financing offered for the Trump Tower Moscow Project, WAS from the state-run Russian Bank VTB — when and if its Sanctions could be lifted.
THAT was the Russian Bait — that Team Putin dangled. And from all appearances Team Trump fell for it. Proverbially, hook, line, and sinker.
